Enter the wild west saloon where it's known that a notorious gang of outlaws frequent.

Rumour has it that they were involved in a recent train robbery of gold bullion. You've had a tip from a friend of yours who works the bar there, that they've stashed their loot somewhere hidden in the saloon.

Can you find their secret hideout and locate the stolen gold before they return to the saloon?

Really nice themed room with some fun puzzles! Very immersive and a few fun ideas I've not seen before. Really like Break Escape... a gem in Loughborough for sure.

Another solid, quality offering from Break Escape in this nicely put together western-themed room that has some real quirks and some fun physical challenges.

A gang of outlaws has hidden their stash of gold and your job is to steal it for yourselves. It's a simple premise but an effective one that works well with the gameplay. With not a padlock in sight, a lot of effort has gone into making this an immersive game with puzzles that suit the situ.

Our GM was a delight. As he had GM'd our other games here, he held back on clues, knowing we'd want to work it through for ourselves. He was really friendly and a pleasure to chat with at the end.

All in all, a physical room with straightforward puzzles but the challenge is sometimes in the signposting and observation!

This game has been cleverly designed where they've minimised the use of padlocks completely - this is something I have not seen in a room before and it was very impressive. Our host was dressed in character of a Cowboy and popped up to help us at the bar of the saloon which was a nice touch to the game. 

The game is well set out, making good use of the space which splits into multiple different rooms. I am usually not a fan of games which are predominantly 1 room so this was a pleasant surprise to our team.

At heart this is a beautifully built and themed, immersive room with a nice flow in terms of puzzles. It's worth noting there are lots of more physical puzzles, particularly at the later stages of the game. If you have any issues with grip or manual dexterity, this isn't the room for you.

Unfortunately our visit was let down by some awkward hosting, with the host not really being the character that (without spoilers) the immersive room setup requires. The room was also warm with little to no ventilation, and the advertised air conditioning didn't work properly at the time of our visit. I think we might have felt more positively about the room if this wasn't the case.
