Absolutely brilliant - mechanics in the room are great and really add to the experience. Be ready for several wow moments! Puzzles are good and love the theming. Progression in the room sometimes not obvious but all part of the challenge. Hint giving could sometimes be less obvious. Donโ€™t miss this room!

It's a fairly small space but this game packs a real punch in terms of what it offers. It's a well-crafted, beautiful set up with some hilarious little touches and a truly fabulous wow moment. If you like something that never strays from the theme, that's bespoke and where there's a real touch of theatre, this one is for you.

I really wanted to love this room, but sadly if fell flat for me.
- The set looks great and makes effective use of the building to enhance this.
- The story didn't quite make sense, but this didn't detract from the game.
- Our GM was a bit clue-happy at the beginning of the game, and considering we completed it in just over the 'expert' time, I felt we could have been left a bit longer to figure some things out ourselves.
- Unfortunately, my biggest gripe is that there were at least 3-4 points in the game where the tech didn't work properly, and we were told to re-solve a puzzle or left for 10 minutes fiddling with it and doing the correct actions but nothing happening. We were told beforehand that the game was "very high tech/automated" and unlike "those places where the GM just pushes a button" - but at the end of the game when we mentioned several things not working correctly the response was 'it's out of my hands *shrug*. I'm sorry, but you should have manual overrides built into the game for these situations, especially if it is happening on multiple puzzles.

Wow.  Quite simply one of the best rooms I have ever played, from theming to puzzle design to reveals.  The space may be limited but everything is so cleverly done and you can see the thought that has gone into it.  The story is coupled with some brilliant atmospheric events and has more than a trace of humour and at time moments of sheer magic.  Iโ€™d love to say more but its one of the few rooms I wish I could forget all about it and just go and play it again.

My second favourite of the 3 rooms here.

Some really nice wow moments and beautifully themed. 

This room is set in a smaller space than the other 2 and I definitely wasn't expecting it to end when it did. It left me wanting more.

Came to play here with work and we played all 3 games in one day.

The game was fantastically themed, with a great story line and some very impressive use of technology!  
Another example of a wonderful independent company who deserve a lot of credit for the hard work they put in!

The team behind Extremescape have done it again, delivering a beautiful set with engaging puzzles and fantastic moments of theatre. I was a little worried that they'd struggle to improve on their previous two games, but they absolutely have - coming up with plenty of new ideas to keep their loyal customers happy and putting even more polish into the experience.
Despite struggling with this room (we were tired), we absolutely loved it. From the start to the incredible ending, this game had everything and more. This room is a real gem in the escape room industry and must be played by everyone.

Overall we had a fantastic time, and the experience continued after we left the room. We spent quite a while talking to the owners and had plenty of cuddles with the resident dog (who is a rather large, but beautiful, Rottweiler-style boy).  Itโ€™s obvious the passion that has gone into these rooms, and itโ€™s well worth the visit.

A very clever and immersive room that all comes together so well. Fantastic range of puzzles and really friendly owners! 

Extremescape have created another truly immersive experience. There is a reason they are seen as one of the best in the business because every minute you play their games they are a joy. They could have easily kept this as a 60 minute game but the additional 15 minutes gives you just enough time to take in the visual feast that is such an amazing game.
