When you’ve played almost 200 rooms it’s refreshing to find puzzles you hadn’t done before and this room had a few of them! We had great fun working our way through the runaway train and it was really on theme. A great host too and we can’t wait to see what they do next.

I have done a few train rooms before, but this was the first one that was actually shaped like a train. Moving through in the way its laid out makes a lot of sense, and this was the best themed room we have done at this venue. Some original things I had not seen before.

Reviews by escape room review sites

XscapeNow’s train game is a Wild West theme, and of course the train you’re on is heading towards a collision that only you can prevent.
This is a room that looks good from the outset and maintains that impression throughout. The train setting gives the game a natural structure, with a clear progression from beginning to end.
A Western setting is a theme well suited to escape room design, with distinctive motifs and style of decor, as well as obvious starting points for puzzles. Putting it on ...

More than just a pretty face, runaway train is a brilliant example of impeccable game flow and game design. A must-play!
