Once again DarkMasters have knocked it out the park. With a premise that tugs on the imagination so much as 'shrunken inside a toy shop', the attention to detail and set design really does it justice. The set is huge, and the amount of puzzles within also staggering. So many wow moments and genuine surprises. Lastly, the finale will always stick in my mind as one of the most fun and creative escapes I've come across. This is a must-do room for sure!

*We attempted it as a two (100+ rooms each), with a strong disclaimer from the owners that it was a challenging 90 minute room, and even experienced teams of two don't often succeed within the 90 minutes. It took us 94 mins, the GM very kindly let us finish. I'm not writing this as a warning, more an advertisement for any enthusiast that needs a real challenge. Some rooms that bill as 90 minutes are just 60 minute rooms in disguise, this very much is not and I was buzzing with the challenge.*
