Reviews by escape room review sites

Celestial Chain has spectacular production values. Let's be quite clear about that: the effects, stage craft and technology on display here are in a completely different league to most rooms, even more so than Time Run's original room. Despite that, to my surprise I found I enjoyed it less than many much less ambitious rooms.
The game is immersive from the first, with your team greeted by a host who stays in role so thoroughly we found ourselves matching his Victorian speech patterns when reply...
The long awaited sequel to Lance of Longinus. Celestial Chain does exactly what I'd expect and push the boundaries of escape rooms. As far as I'm concerned the two Time run games are the best in London and whether you rate this experience of Lance of Longinus more highly will probably depend on how much you accept the new format.
So, Time Run’s new room. Going in I figured this would be a tough review – last time around The Lance of Longinus just blew us away with its sheer visual impact: we had no idea escape rooms could look like movie sets. This time around, we’re expecting nothing less.
After doing their Lance of Longinus room, we couldn't wait to go back and try out their other room.
