One of the most original games ever! So much fun, really immersive and great hosting. The clue system is wholly original as well! Loads to do but we never felt too swamped.

A super fun and original game. Puzzles were inventive and well signposted without being obvious. Theming and props were excellent. GM was very on it and really friendly. Enjoyed a couple of the unique features of this game that kept the tension high. Get this venue on your to-play list as their games are fantastic and clearly made by people who love escape rooms.

Just an excellent room packed densely with fun puzzles. I preferred this to the Citadel, but that is also awesome. Escape Nation should be on every enthusiast's radar.

Reviews by escape room review sites

Incognito opened not long after my first visit to Escape Nation, and I’ve been meaning to play it ever since, on the strength of their first room, so was delighted to finally get a chance.
This is a light hearted secret agent game, decorated in bright comic book colours with a distinctive art style. Your mission is to correctly identify the titular bad guy from his host of near-duplicates, something you can hopefully accomplish over the course of the game while also escaping.
In visuals and pl...
We chose Incognito's Secret Lair to be our 200th room, so no pressure. This room had a good mix of puzzles and we can easily see this being a family favourite (equally good as a two though!)

The atmosphere created in the room was incredible and somehow a sense of gravitas was created that underpinned the tongue in cheek nature of the game that just worked so very well.
