😨creepy

Great room with some good puzzles. Especially like the integration of “cctv” screens that kept you on the edge and constantly looking over it. Well timed interaction with the GM in time with the cctv screen. 

Nothing particularly creepy apart from atmospherical scare

Again, very basic room, limited tech, padlock rooms are most enjoyable but there has to be enough. Paid for 2 hours and completed both rooms in just over an hour. This was very early on when the rooms first opened.

quite easy

After playing 3 rooms here, we find that the signposting in the rooms is good  and the games flow well. 

This room is quite atmospheric and immersive. There are lots of the same type of padlock which makes things a bit monotonous at times. 

We escaped all of the games in around half an hour, so they are definitely good for beginners but not much of a challenge for an experienced team.

My Hometown's First Escape Room

When Escape Rooms Beverley opened, I had to come home to find out what it's like, starting with their more difficult challenge.

Story
Escape an autopsy before the killer scientist comes back to finish the job. So, your average, SAW-esque storyline. One of the team is 'kidnapped', but the task involved to reunite the taken member is so easy, it renders the whole act pointless, really.

Puzzles
One 'gory' practical puzzle chimed in with the theme, but, other than that, they screamed (or rather spoke) simple, generic death. Shine some UV here, solve the riddle there. Rudimentary. We needed one or two subtle hints, but then there were also a couple of occasions where we needed a shove in the right direction, rather than a gentle push!

Mise-en-scene
It was a bare, dank dwelling...killer scientist's hideaway, sure, but nothing to get overly excited or spooked out about. They had mortuary cabinets- but then they also had pound shop body parts. The set-up for the finale sadly fell flat.

Final Comments
With a title like Autopsy, I was hoping for more than just another run-from-the-mad-murderous-scientist escapade. However, as a company that's just starting out, Escape Room Beverley's more difficult room proved to be a fun family challenge on the whole.
