Just borrowed some money from some bad people. You thought youโ€™d gotten away with it, but they tracked you down and now they are calling in their debts. You have one hour to get them their million.
Fail in your task, and prison will be the least of your worries.

This room is in my top 3 UK rooms (out of 50 or so i've completed). It's a must-do!

Blooming brilliant game. The set is incredible, totally immersive. The safe itself is really impressive - the effort they have gone to to recreate it is really top notch. 

The music is brilliant - all really well picked tunes with the tempo and style ramping up as time goes on. Our GM was a huge amount of fun, too, really playing his character as well. 

Genuinely loved this game, it was so much fun with some clever puzzles. This is one of those rooms that when you come out you are totally buzzing.

We had read reviews of the room and it didn't disappoint!! Great immersion including theme and soundtrack. With only 2 players, there was a lot to do but, because we could divide and conquer, we managed to get the full ยฃ1000000. GM Tom was great, sending hints when needed but still making us do the hard work.

Reviews by escape room review sites

Many venues invest greater amounts of money and tech in each new game they create. I think thatโ€™s true of Escape Reading too, but theyโ€™ve also shown something rarer and more important: an ever-improving ability to make their games engaging, logical and high-energy.

My initial impression was that Ram Raidโ€™s decor aims more for realism than for wow factor; but that first impression underestimated it. This is of course a heist game, named for the smash-and-grab style of robbery, with a background ...

I can see why Ram Raid is an enthusiast's favourite. There is a lot to do in this game, but you donโ€™t have to do it all to be successful. This game will likely keep you locked up for most of the 60 minutes, and youโ€™ll be non-stop running around solving some quality puzzles.
All the puzzles are varied, fun, bang-on theme and delightfully interactive, and the staging is excellent in itโ€™s design and delivery. There was plenty for the four of us to do
