While it starts off fairly linear, this room has what all enthusiasts hope for when they hear the words 'bank' and 'heist': a whole vault full of puzzles to tear into!It's not about spectacular set in here - although it is perfectly immersive - but it is about the flowing gameplay, the plethora of mathematical puzzles and the thrill of getting all 15 gold bars before legging it out the door.

A lovely heist game that has you solving a set of puzzles to crack into safe deposit boxes for gold bars. As with the other rooms here, economical set design and decor that isn't overloaded with detail - but you'll find yourself running all over the place to investigate it. Really good fun. I can imagine with a larger group it would be total chaos too.

great hostingfamily friendly

We like a good heist and we enjoyed this room, we did our usual overthinking on some puzzles but we got there in the end!

A mixture of puzzles but there was quite a few maths puzzles which helps if you have someone good with numbers in your team.

Reviews by escape room review sites

An expertly designed game, which functions with a “Collect as much as you can” mechanic rather than a strict escape.
This is such a good method of game play as escape rooms are getting more well known, so returning and experienced players are becoming a lot more commonplace. This room will serve to satisfy both newbies and enthusiasts.
The Escape Room Guys have created a really authentic game that uses its space really well. It’s a great take on a heist game that gives it a different feel and doesn’t have a laser maze like so many others. The first half will be an enjoyable experience for enthusiasts although not hard but the second half will certainly test your grey matter. It’s certainly made us want to go back and try their other two games.
