Once upon a time….

…there was an old run-down house where some children lived with their foul aunt and uncle.

Whenever they were left in the house, they were locked in the living room and longed to escape to a happier place.

They puzzled over a curious locked door in the corner of the room, from behind which they had heard laughing and screams of joy.

They fantasized about the fun they could have in that room, and that just maybe the way to escape their misery lay beyond.

One day the aunt and uncle left the children and told them they would be back in an hour’s time.

The children decided this was the time to find a way into the forbidden room of fun, and possibly find a way to escape…

Great room! Very playful and some ingenious puzzles to solve. Nice and bright! You can choose “easy”, “medium” or “hard” difficulty when you book the room. We did it on “hard”

It had some enjoyable puzzles. It goes from exceptionally linear to having quite a range of puzzles people can do at once. Some of the puzzles were very original. 

I would say the theming didn't really hit home and there were no real 'wow' moments. Felt a bit flat at the end of the escape.

This was a great room with loads of fun puzzles, and very well themed.  Plenty for all of us to do and you can work on several things at the same time.  It would be especially good for families as there were some really fun bits that our 12 year old loved, but a great room for anyone.

Good room with some excellent theming, and quite immersive.  We particularly enjoyed the non-linear design of the room, meaning that all team members could be doing something without waiting for an alpha player to solve a bottleneck puzzle.

Quite possibly the most fun room I have ever played, really well thought out, would be good for younger people just getting in to escape rooms
