Someone has sabotaged the fair and your help is urgently needed. Can you help to navigate your way around the cacophony of twisted fairground puzzles, solve the mystery as to who is behind this monstrous crime and save the fairground folk who are stranded on a broken-down coaster?
Book your ticket to Faskinโ€™s Fairground now!

It felt more like a linear progression of puzzles rather than an escape room-like experience.  I might have given this more points if the puzzles were more ingenious, but while there's quite a variety of puzzles here none of them struck me are particularly interesting.  But YMMV.

Really enjoyed this one! A cross between a whodunnit and a classic escape room.

Reviews by escape room review sites

At time of writing Clue Cracker have released four online games: one short free one, one 60 minute game, and two longer 90 minute games, and Fairground Felony is one of the latter. In this one you're alone in a spooky fairground, pitted against a mysterious enemy who plans to send the fairground's employees to an unfortunate end unless you can solve his puzzles.

Note that there is a download limit on your purchase that restricts it to two households, meaning your code can only be used to access...

In terms of difficulty this is a step (or five) up from their other online experiences but it still features the same quality of story throughout, and has puzzles that will give your brain a good workout

If you love hilariously bad puns, brilliant acting and lighthearted adventure, then Fairground Felony is for you.

When all is said and done, it is safe to say we hugely enjoyed playing this game - a great mix of puzzles, character and tension- certainly a game that all the family can enjoy!
