It's 1926 here in Chicago, and depression is still rife. Jobs are few and far between and the Prohibition has been in force for six years now. Everyone still drinks, nothin' has changed. But now the mob control the streets, the supply and the money. The influence of the Outfit is far reaching. Most of the cops are even under their control. Who can put them in the joint? You can, that's who.
The Commissioner has put together a special task force of straight, trusted cops and you're on the team. You've spent the last few months infiltrating their network and now tonight is the night to get the evidence you need to put them away forever. But it won't be easy, and you might not make it out alive.
Do you have what it takes?

Took us a while to get into, again a good game. Found this game more challenging then Mutiny. A lot of stopping and starting from us throughout the game and struggling to find our flow again. But still a very good game, and again great hosting from Vee.

Got mega stuck on pretty much the first puzzle of the game, but things went fairly smoothly after that.

Although maybe not as exciting to play as the venue’s other game Mutiny, this is still a very solid experience and ranks up there as one of the top games we have played. It’s puzzles, theme and decor marry together perfectly to create a seamless experience. There is no doubt that these guys are at the top of their game and are one of the companies to look up to in the industry.

One of the best rooms I’ve done, and definitely up there for difficulty. Bring along multiple friends – you won’t be short of puzzles to solve!

The world of scare attractions is not one I'm particularly familiar with, but apparently Tulleys Farm is well known there for their Shocktober event every Halloween. They've now expanded into escape rooms as well, with two rooms now open; The Outfitters was the first one we tried, and it has a 1920s Prohibition setting. You're faced with a gentleman's clothing store suspected of being a front for a bootleg bar, and need to find your way in so you can bust the Mob owners.

As with many games, the...

An impressive first outing for a team with plenty of experience in immersion and theatre but no background in puzzles. Outfitters is a beautiful game with solid puzzles that is about as expansive as they come - I'd highly recommend heading down if you get the chance.
Probably the third best room at Tulleys, strangely we found this one harder than Nethercott Manor despite this being classed as easier by Tulleys
We managed to escape with a respectable 19mins remaining and an eagerness to sink our teeth into the next one (after lunch). Although this wasn’t a bad room, I’d say it was fairly average, and if this was the only room we’d done…I would have been disappointed.
We head back to prohibition Chicago to uncover the mob. Do we escape with our lives?

Fantastic theming in this room and each reveal throughout was just perfection, we couldn’t think of anything it was missing and the result of course is that 10/10 you see for immersion.

A wide array of puzzles that kept us all busy the whole time we were in there and appealed to our various strengths, it’s one of those rooms where if you’re struggling on something call your team mates!

This experience wasn’t quite as packed with puzzles as our other plays of the day but there was still room for a lot of originality and the big puzzle (you’ll know it when you see it!) was very impressive and very thoughtfully planned out.
A game with immaculate theming, excellent puzzles and a large amount of space to explore. An exciting game that constantly surprised.

A really well designed room really fitting in with the theme, some tricky puzzles, but a really good variety of puzzles. 4 distinct sections which kept all 4 of us busy throughout. Thoroughly worth the visit.
