OK I’m reviewing this room also based on value. So we did one of their other rooms and they sent us a 15% off voucher. Meaning that this room for one adult and one child cost us just £35. It’s a fairly small room, but it’s well dressed, atmospheric, and great fun. Of the two rooms, this was our favourite one.

Great room for families. The room itself is beautiful and feels like a real hogwarts room. The downsides are that the puzzles were on the whole quite straight forward. Recommend for younger players or if you’re new to escape rooms.

I liked it. Looks beautiful and it's absolutely spotless. Lots of puzzles. Definitely on the easy side though.

Loved it! The family had a great time! So many different puzzles to keep us on our toes. 

Reviews by escape room review sites

Although Lockdown are new to the escape room scene, they have brought three strong games to the table, with (minor hiccups aside) The Ministry being a highlight of the venue. If their first games are any indication of their skills, I look forward to seeing what comes next!

What looks like a standard “study” upon further inspection becomes a magical world full of floting candles and other secrets.
