Trapped in a cabin the woods, you think you have about an hour to get out before the killer returns. However, as you start to explore the cabin something just feels ... off.

I would get out of there

plainunoriginalquite difficult
Best part about the room was the entrance before you go in unfortunately. The room was a large open space with very little attention to detail or teeming, we much prefer being fully immersed in a room. People were playing golf above us too. Lock missing when we arrived aswell. Only 2 puzzles we consider to be hard, the first and a folding map, the folding map was impossible, I would like to see how they actually wanted this folding. Unfortunately our second worse escape room experience. Catered to casual players who are there for fun with friends, have a drink and a laugh vibe, not serious players who are there for the room, puzzles and immersion.

illogicalvery difficult

This room was a mess, and this was after they've removed a bunch of puzzles. This was their most difficult room, although I'd say it was more confusing than diffcult. Very dark, non linear locks and puzzles, with many of them to boot.

plainunoriginalvery easy

This used to be a difficult room in it's previous guise as The Cabin... What Lies Beneath. The storyline has been mildly altered but the puzzles remain the same except for the fact that most of them have been removed! What's left is disappointingly easy hence us finishing in 30 minutes with a sense of 'is that it?'

Immersion is ruined by the loud punkish music being played through the venue even at 10am in the morning plus at other times the indoor golf course can be clearly heard.

If you want to play it, play on a Wednesday when all the rooms here are half price (at time of writing).
