Wow this was so much fun! After struggling with the first clue (we felt like proper beginners!), we made our way into the main set and were really impressed with how immersive, sprawling and exciting it all was. A vast variety of puzzles, all of which made sense, and best of all the theming of this room was really on point, it felt like we were really on a train! Double thumbs up for this room! Our new  personal favourite at XscapeNow.

Very enjoyable and a large space to explore! Due to the large space, at some points the game felt a little bit sparse, it felt like a few more puzzles could have been included. Great host and a fun room!

Great train escape rooms!  four or five rooms long as you work your way along the train. lots of props and guns!!!

One of the best we have done so far. if your in Telford try this room if you can.

we will be returning to see the other rooms they have also. hope they are just as good.

Yee-ha! This had a lovely big floor plan and was packed with puzzles that were on-theme and enjoyable. If I could add a couple more puzzles, I would, but purely because we were enjoying it so much that it was disappointing when it ended! We love physical puzzles and there were quite a few of these. We also enjoyed some of the twists on some of the usual puzzles we see in escape rooms.

There were no 'what do we do now?' moments because it's all quite instinctive so flowed nicely. A team of two was the perfect number, as it meant we both got to work on everything without feeling crowded.
