We love Locked In Glasgow and finally got around to doing their magic themed room. Whilst we had a lot of fun, as always, this room is showing its age and we are told that it is now being given a series of rolling updates, which is definitely a good thing. Although there is some great theming, and the puzzle flow and signposting is first rate as always, Locked In have definitely moved on to bigger and better things with their newest rooms Bloodline and Doll’s House, and I personally think the footprint of this room could be much better used now with the skills and creativity that have really been showcased at this venue recently. It’s not a bad room - far from it, and it’s certainly on a par with the best rooms at almost any other venue - it’s just that standards are so high at Locked In that we always hope for more. The great hosting (from Graeme again) is always a total highlight here and we are really looking forward to hopefully coming back as soon as there is something new for us to play. Till the next time, Locked In!

We've done our fair share of magical themed escape rooms but this one is really special for its sheer volume of lovely details. Without giving too much away, there are just so many puzzles in here that link together beautifully and it's incredibly intuitive.

A gorgeous game, packed full of puzzles and with an interesting competitive twist in the middle. It delivers fun, logical challenges, and the scene-setting is the strongest I saw at Locked In Glasgow, where even the weakest rooms were well above average.
