great hosting

As I've said before I do love a bit of theatre prior to getting into a room and this does deliver with your Jailer (we had Officer Jess Taylor) staying in character throughout.  As described, you start the game in the actual cell hooded and handcuffed but you end up playing in near total darkness with only one torch.  The puzzles are mostly straightforward but it's the darkness that is the problem and we misread something that would prove to be our downfall even though we had the right answer on the very final puzzle.  The Prison itself is worth a visit and we did then have a walk around (you get the option of a self guided tour included with the Escape Room) and there is a novelty value in escaping from a genuine prison cell but I wouldn't go just for the Escape Rooms/
