Passengers on pilgrimage aboard a trader ship, Evadere The Tempestas, on course to holy Terra. Pilgrims have been escorted to their quarters deep within the bowels of the vessel, upon entering they are told the ship will soon translate into the warp and the journey will begin. The ship stirs into life, players hear a distant rumble and feel a faint vibration as the engines wake. As the warp jump is made, the warp core and several ship systems fail, causing massive damage to the craft. Players have no choice but to leave and find out what has happened or risk being trapped in the crew quarters while the ship is slowly torn apart. Here the real journey begins... battle through the Warp Storm and escape the ever seeping Chaos.
Created in conjunction with Games Workshop, Immaterium is a simultaneous cooperative team experience. For the first time ever, players will be able to jump into the world of Warhammer 40,000 and experience its myriad dangers for real. They will touch, smell and feel all areas of the ship and everything on it – including a talking Servitor. Up to five people at a time can immerse themselves in Immaterium, and explore the deepest recesses of a star-faring vessel facing imminent doom.

This is a hard room to review, I think it falls somewhere between an escape room and more of a theme park experience, this is a hybrid without fully committing to either one. The theming and scenery are absolutely top notch, the puzzles aren't arguably original but they are done well and completely in theming. You don't need to know any of the background of the game this is based on to enjoy it but I'm sure it's packed with easter eggs for fans. I had a couple of issues with the audio system and elements of the scenery but I was able to talk to the GM at the end regarding this. Escapologic have pushed the envelope again with this and I think it's a fascinating view of a potential view for the future.
If you're a Warhammer fan this this will be a wet dream for you, but even if you aren't a fan the room build is stunningly detailed and are visual feasts. But its really more of an event or experience, its very light on puzzles with much more doing than solving.Regardless of being puzzle light is a room to do as there are incedible OMG! moments, its a must play just don't expect a puzzlefest.

The set for this is fantastic, multiple spaces with high attention to detail and a variety of special effects to be enjoyed. It isn't a classic escape room per se in that there are not lots of puzzles to work out but it is immersive and I can see in terms of development how this is one direction ERs could go. Definitely requires physical agility by all team members. I am not familiar with Warhammer so didn't get any added satisfaction that way but can't say it mattered to me in terms of experience.
Possibly one of the most visually stunning games that we have ever played. Ok, the puzzles didn’t particularly click with us but that won’t stop us recommending this game. Make sure you stretch before you play, you need to be quite mobile as you navigate around the ship.
This room will thrill any Warhammer fan of course, but also any general sci-fi fan, or anyone who has ever thought they would love the chance at escaping from a perilous situation (whilst never actually being in danger!) or looking for a very atmospheric room with some clever tasks and surprises. It does call for some dexterity as well as climbing and crawling, so a great one for kids just don't wear your best trousers!!
Immaterium delivers a gritty but pretty set with fun, physical puzzles, although be prepared for that lack of user feedback to potentially leave you frustrated. I’d recommend it to anyone who’s in Nottingham, but especially Warhammer or sci-fi fans or those who like physical challenges.
