Our unwitting Heroes awake to find themselves in a forest, but something was amiss. The first clue was the fact that they couldn't leave the immediate area, the second was a narrators voice coming from nowhere in particular. That was when they noticed the hour glass, with sand in the glass steadily emptying they knew they had to leave the place....and quick!!

We were lucky enough to test this game while it was being developed and nearly ready to go.

Iโ€™ve been back to play the other two rooms since, and they all have creative and unique elements, and at least one puzzle where you have to really try to put yourself in a different mindset. It helps to have people with you who have different puzzle solving skills. 

Hosting at suffolk escape academy is always fantastic with a love for escape rooms and puzzles which is reflected in the rooms.

Highly recommended as always.

We tested this game and first of all, you have to take a moment and step back to appreciate the amount of work and effort that has gone into creating this room - beautifully hand painted - amazing. 

The game was brilliant, there was something for everyone, I really enjoyed a lot of the puzzles in this room, some simple but extremely effective and enough to confuse me (until after 11am) and some more complex that were super fun to explore and solve. 

I took an Escape room newbie with me for this and he really enjoyed it and found his feet really fast and managed with the puzzles which tells me this room is perfectly designed for both newbies and experienced players alike. 

I wish Jonny and the team all the best with this room as it really is fantastic.
