If you also set a star rating, the star rating won't be shown anywhere but will still be used when calculating the game's overall score on Escape The Review.
Some might say this was quite easy.. it was certainly logical but we had quite a few 'doh!' moments that were totally fair and logical but we just.. missed them! And I personally like that as it's so much better than 'well how was I ever going to get that?!' which I've had many times before. Even if you do find the puzzles on the easier side, there are lots of them.
We needed 2 or 3 clues but these were excellently timed by the lovely games master which allowed us to take full advantage of our time in the room and escape with just over a minute to spare.
The room is very nicely designed, it takes you to a different timeline. The puzzles are fun and original. The Game Master was also great. Overall, great experience and I very recommend it.

The Cardiff Castle has quickly become one of my favourite escape games in Wales. With a beautiful set, wonderful a-ha moments and solid puzzles, it’s an instant win for me.
I’d hyped up the game quite a bit in my mind during lockdown, and I was delighted that it had exceeded my expectations.
If you enjoyed The Tomb and are looking for something a bit more challenging, The Cardiff Castle should be next on your list. But I think everyone will get a kick out of playing this room.
I’d recommend this game for groups of 2-3 (four maximum) as the rooms aren’t too big and bigger groups might step on one another’s toes.
This game is the closest to a Crystal Maze style experience you’re likely to get without going to the real deal. You’ll have a blast!
