The Printworks, Withy Grove, M4 2BS
After a short walk in the forest, you spot a run-down old cabin that stands alone in the cold air. You step inside to find the cabin empty. The door suddenly slams closed behind you and locks, trapping you inside. Mysterious figures in black hoods begin to emerge from the trees. They are all members of a strange cult devoted to bringing a demon back into this world. For this to happen, your sacrifice is required. The ritual will last an hour, you don’t have much time to find a way out…

some clues seemed to have no connection to their puzzles and the room is a little easy, as a first timer we missed escaping by 1 puzzle and it was because we overthought it. Other than that, the room is well themed and a great introduction to escape rooms for me and my friends

My last visit to Escape Reality (until they open a
new room) and, with a full loyalty card, this game was free!
Rumours about strange chanting in the forest leads you to a cabin in the woods. Once inside, the door locks and members of a cult surround it. Escape before they can sacrifice you as part of their ritual. Classic dumb-teenagers-in-a-horror-film behaviour.
The very first one had us absolutely stumped, which is unlike us. It was on the confusing side. Once that one was out of the way, we were up running, save for a couple more clues. It was a rudimental series of spoopy (spooky but cute) puzzles, with one or two making use of the gloomy atmosphere.
This room had the feel of the witch’s cottage from Hansel and Gretel, with its beguiling furnishes and abundance of little knick-knacks and articles. The dim lighting contributed to the ominous vibe.
We got out with less than a minute left on the clock. This isn’t the best room Escape Reality has to offer, but it certainly isn’t the worst. Ritual feels like it has been crammed into a spare utility room to monetise the extra space. Take no more than a team of four.
