It's the year of our lord 1672, and you be right in the height o' the golden age o' piracy…
After years of sailin' the high seas, you and your crew have succeeded in your fair share of ambushes, and as a result – your ship is teamin' with bounty.
Yet you're still suffering beneath the cruel wrath o' Captain Starling - a notoriously bloodthirsty buccaneer, and your shipmates have decided you all shall take matters into your own hands. After all… you fought for the gold, so the gold is yours for the taking, aye?
Once the old seadog has retreated to his berth for the night, you make your move. Get in, get the treasure and get out. You won't have long before he starts to stir – and Starling shows no mercy to ANY soul…

Really enjoyed this room! A lot to do but enjoyed the non linear nature which meant even though there was only 2 of us we could get it all done. The mix of puzzles, magnets, locks etc was spot on.

Mutiny was a fun room, there's certainly a lot to do and the rooms are superb. The only downside is the amount of padlocks, almost every puzzle includes a padlock of some description, there are also padlocks for the room resetting which are all a certain colour and you are told to ignore, but in the heat of the moment you can find yourself wasting seconds trying to input a code into a non game piece. 

There is one puzzle in particular where half is available very early on, but you don't get to access the other half until much later, meaning you can also waste time trying to interpret the only bit you can see and trying that incorrect value in one of the many padlocks. 

The puzzles themselves were a good mix of physical and mental. Sometimes it was easier to brute force the last digit of a padlock instead of solving it, and we were able to completely skip a part by doing this, however, if we hadn't we would have failed. 

Overall a good room, great theme and immersive, we certainly felt like we had worked for the whole hour.

This is a fabulously solid, logical room with superb decor and the classic Tulley's attention to detail. There is a great variation of puzzles and all of them are rational, enjoyable puzzles with a strong piratical theme.

Reviews by escape room review sites

The set is beautiful, and absolutely massive. No spoilers, but the extent of it, over an hour did astound (and slightly panic!) us. One of those “OMG, there’s another room” games, with the added joy of a complete environment transformation halfway through
Potentially our favourite game to date. The level of details, the gameplay and the puzzle content is the perfect marriage and creates a fully immersive, enjoyable environment. This is what as escape room should be about. Fun and engaging and a feeling of value for money even if you escape well under the time. It’ll provide a challenge for beginners but a really fun ride for enthusiasts. Today, we’ve been spoiled!

Mutiny is Tulleys' pirate game, and it's a swashbuckling joy to play. A pirate theme demands good decorations, and this one delivers in spades. It has the same large footfall as its sibling game and is a clear step up in its visual impact. (Players should be warned that this is not a game to play wearing their smartest clothes.)

Before the game begins there's a slightly different version of the intro video we had for their other game, which was entertaining enough that we didn't mind listening ...

Tulleys deliver again with a beautiful set and solid puzzles. The one area where I felt that The Outfitters was lacking was on the physical puzzles front so it was great that this game was strong on that front with a couple of real standout elements.
According to Tulleys’ website, this is the easiest of their rooms. I would tend to agree, and think it would be an excellent choice for both enthusiasts and newcomers, alike

As you might expect for a ship, this game required more physicality than others, but these were more to reveal/solve puzzles than being the puzzle itself. There was one particularly unique feature of this room, which was fun to build and use, but otherwise, this was your average pirate room, just more polished and better executed. Ultimately we escaped with 22 mins left, and we had fun doing so, but we were looking forwards to the final room.

Whilst the Captain's asleep, can we reclaim our share of the treasure?

Now this room definitely had the wow factor in terms of theming and decoration! So much attention to detail and probably for me, the most immersive of all the Tulleys rooms.

The variety of puzzles was excellent and there was something that suited every member of our group! Some challenging physical puzzles as well as plenty of skillful ones. Definitely not the run-of-the-mill puzzles you might see in a standard escape room.

This room had some really great big puzzles which required more than just one brain and definitely more than one pair of hands! We had great fun rummaging around in the belly of this pirate ship, the puzzles were absolutely fantastic with lots of elements that we hadn’t come across before and, while not the most challenging of the Tulley’s Escape Adventures, it was an absolutely brilliant experience!

An epic swashbuckling adventure of a game that’s elaborately themed and occupies an impressive amount of floor space.

A well themed, good looking room, 4 different sections that keep well with the theme. One puzzle that was not clear exactly what it did, but was important to getting through, some way of better knowing what you have done would be better. Ultimately though, this is quickly forgotten due to the presence of a cannon!
