A recent archeological discovery beneath the Palace of Knossos in Crete has revealed a maze of underground tunnels believed to be part of the great Labyrinth - home to the Minotaur from Greek mythology.
However, the sudden disappearance of the expedition’s lead archaeologist, Professor Ernest Longshaw has fuelled speculation that the Minotaur may be more than just a legend passed on from generation to generation for over 3000 years.
You and your team have been assigned to explore the last remaining passageways of the Labyrinth and reveal the true legend of the Minotaur.
Do you have the skill to navigate your way to the heart of the Labyrinth and the nerve to reveal its hidden secrets? Will you escape with knowledge and understanding or will you suffer the same fate as those before you, forever to be entombed within the Labyrinth?

Wonderfully themed, great set design and a good mix of puzzles.  We had a couple of hints from "Zeus" and some great banter/interaction.  Set design is good with some spins on some classic puzzles.  As some reviewers have commented, it starts slow but momentum does build to a great finale.

The second game I played at Adrenaline Escape, Labyrinth is based on the legend of the Minotaur and the labyrinth of King Minos of Crete. No escape room is going to be able to create a vast network of underground corridors where you can wander for days, but Labyrinth is a relatively large game and uses its space to create a genuine sense of exploration.
Labyrinth's premise involves a mysteriously disappearing archaeologist, but, unlike the other room we played at the venue, the story isn't an i...
Labyrinth might start off a little slowly, but it gathers momentum. By the end, we were having a great time and left with big smiles on our faces. The real stand out for me was the impressive and contrasting visual elements of the game and I think other enthusiasts will be drawn in by that too.
This room certainly felt like a labyrinth, with twists and turns meaning we didn’t know which way we would be headed next. With decent puzzles and a good flow to the game, we enjoyed our time in the Labyrinth.
