Great room. 

Good theming and puzzles on point. There’s a lot to do and get you started in this room, but the great thing is that they take the time to explain some of the puzzles at the end which are all relevant to the actual story of the real titanic. They have used this escape room as an educational piece and it’s done brilliantly. 

It’s certainly a room not to be missed and I would explore everyone to pop along and give it ago

Enjoyed the physicality and immersion of the room - was tastefully done for the theme. Surprised it's listed as a 90min room, as we were out comfortably within the hour, and possibly could've done it faster.

‘Immersive’ is a worrying term for a game based on the sinking of the Titanic, but fortunately they don’t take things as far as plunging players into the icy waters of the Atlantic. Instead, this game places the players in an upper class berth on the doomed ship, just as it begins to sink.
Houdini Escape excel at providing a good experience before and after the game, starting from the atmospheric lobby and the mini-cinema used for game briefings. I particularly admired the way they use a simple...
A good intro and cool transition into the game. A beautifully themed space, with a sense of exploration across the ship and attention to detail that really helps with immersion. Solid puzzles and good theatre throughout the game. Titanic is probably the most impressive of the games in Southampton and well worth a trip if you're in the area.
We loved the attention to detail in both the game, and the waiting area. The room itself had touches that were historically accurate, and the reception had a poster of the Titanic that was signed by the youngest survivor of the disaster.

As it turns out, the room has a lot going for it. It sprawls over several rooms (well, "cabins"), it looks fairly realistic (except for lack of motion, I guess) and proposes a few tasks I had never performed before (something I always appreciate after playing so many rooms). There are many references to real-life details in the puzzles, to the point where Titanic experts would probably be able to circumvent a puzzle or two. Yet, having said all that...
