Really enjoyed the side quests in this one, and the puzzles are really engaging, although maybe a little mismatch with the theme sometimes. Also the set is not quite as immersive as it could be, but very good room apart from those niggles!

hi-techcleverquantity of puzzlesvery difficult
Escape Brum's new game, Labyrinth: Lord Barrington's Folly, is a pretty darn good escape game. It's a linear game, but there are many optional puzzles to collect and find. The linear game is a solid puzzling experience, using the labyrinth's unique plan, contraptions and elements for some unique and challenging puzzles. The open puzzles are even more difficult, and no clues are on offer for those. Despite only solving just over about half, we did enjoy the reveals at the end of what we missed.

Loads to do and some extremely clever puzzles, some damn near impossible to get but none unfair. As with most collection rooms, frustrating when you finish and find out what you missed, but thoroughly enjoyable and you'll fill an hour in there easily.

great hostingfamily friendly

This is my favourite of the three games at this venue.  The game is a set of puzzles connecting various rooms in order to score 'coins' and to also free the Minotaur.  There's a lot of puzzles here ranging from dexterity, search, physical and one of the best water based puzzles I've sen in a long time.  Our host was Ian (the owner) who GMd us brilliantly throughout.  The theming here isn't as strong as in Mystic's cabin but it definitely scores on the ideas and gameplay front.

beautifuloriginalstory-drivenquite difficult

Loved it! Such a variety of puzzles including ones I’ve never seen before, and really fun interactive elements. Really enjoyed collecting the tokens as well as completing the main escape objective. The room was so well designed and you could tell a lot of time and energy had gone into building each element, as it was themed so well. Great friendly hosting, and we enjoyed that the host took us round the room at the end to show us where the tokens were that we’d missed and how to solve the puzzles we’d missed too!
