Absolutely fantastic room in terms of theming, technology and immersiveness. Overall enjoyed it and the venue is spot on. A few issues with the room itself - it was high tech which is good, but a few things didnโ€™t quite work without a hint from the games master (I.e. how to get it exactly right rather than actually solve the clue which we had done - frustrating and took away the immersiveness). Personally found the end very difficult to the point I donโ€™t think Iโ€™d have got it without a lot of clues. Yes we escaped but wouldโ€™ve been there all day if there wasnโ€™t a time limit! Perhaps best for experts - would be interested to see if thatโ€™s the case.

Quite disappointed by this one. Set is great but very few puzzles to solve and the avatar wasn't really in character enough and just made everything a bit too easy.

Creepy buildings are a staple in this world and in this isn't the first abandoned orphanage I've been in.  There's a lot of technology in this room so don't expect many padlocks, this is also a dark room (but they will increase the overall lighting if you're struggling).  Ultimately I thought this room was anticlaimactic, the game was great but the lack of an ending stops it from being exceptional.
