"The sanatorium is no longer used. From what I've read, it was used for both the mentally and the physically impaired and the living conditions in that place were truly horrendous. The strange thing is the other day I was passing by, I swear I think I heard someone screaming from the inside. I surely must have been mistaken though because it was closed down long ago."

James Bloodworth expert says:

Lock Hill claims to be the most thematic escape room in Europe and they are onto something, from the moment you enter the foyer you are transported to the world, there are three rooms at this venue and they are all in the village of "Lock Hill", all the GM's are always in character and it gives a level of immersion rarely seen in Escape Rooms.  The Sanatorium has three difficulty levels and you choose before hand, daylight is normal but with no live actors, night is half the puzzles but live actors and nightmare is all the puzzles with live actors!  We chose daylight as one of our number had an injured foot and didn't fancy it.  This is a hard room with some really complex puzzles to get your head around.  Clues are given over a phone and still given in character.  This was a tough room without worrying about what might be round the corner.  I've been torn about whether I enjoyed this or the manor house more but I think this one just gets over the line.

The Sanatorium is the third part of a trilogy about Nathan Jones, a professor of the University of Boston, who spent the last year researching a recent archeological find, from a small and good forsaken village in the north. Now he’s missing for two month.
The Sanatorium was the best kind of bonkers. It was big, beautiful, menacing, and loaded with surprising sequences.
