Portal guardians make sure that the gates are well secured. But one of the portal guards has been put into a magical sleep – and now evil creatures are streaming into our world. Solve puzzles in enchanted places and collect enough crystals to re-seal the Magic Portal and save our world from destruction.

Your team will have 2 hours to assist the portal guardians in closing the portal to stop the evil creatures. In this brainteasing mix of digital and augmented reality tasks, with live map tracking, you will use the iPad provided to make your way to destinations around Gravesend (all walking distance) and solve riddles or complete tasks at designated markers set out by our Gamesmasters.

It's an interesting concept, but this game was generally lacklustre and really wasn't our cup of tea. I think young kids might enjoy it. Lots of very basic puzzles and zero effort to make it immersive. Some of the props were worn and had not been fixed. The worst part (without spoilers) at one point you are asked to do something which seemed very un-environmentally friendly which we chose not to do. Wouldn't recommend unfortunately.

Didn't get on with this at all. The tech ran out of battery as we were half way round and they had to come out and find us with a charged up tablet...

Had great fun walking round Ormskirk, completing the missions.  All well thought out and some easier than others. We came 2nd on their leaderboard from one silly mistake, but we complete it without any clues, in the fastest time.

Pete was a great host, as always.

Great fun to do during a lockdown with a nice weather.

It took us a bit of time to get use to the technology but the puzzle are increasingly difficult which allow you to get the hang of it.

We needed just over an hour to complete and didn't need any clue. It was fun but doesn't bit the atmosphere of their other indoor games!

Played when it first opened and was screamed at by the staff in a hotel because they no longer wanted the game players n there and had informed the company the previous week but they continued sending people in there.

This is a game where you go around Canterbury with a tablet and complete tasks. We weren't told that this was aimed at children so we found it a bit babyish and not very challenging.

Reviews by escape room review sites

This game combines a digital portal with a 3D floor plan to make you feel closer to the real world in the comfort of your home. Although it didn't have a strong puzzle component, it did give us the detective vibe. We also liked that we didn't have to go outside of the game portal for additional information. Adding an inventory basket would definitely make the game much easier to follow and improve the game flow. If you like "search and find" type of game while piecing together evidences in order to find the truth behind a mystery, then this might be the game for you!

The Pegasus Project is a prequel to Operation Mindfall. If you’ve played it’s outdoor counterpart, running around with your briefcase and an iPad, then you’ll know the drill! Spies, an evil corporation, mind control, and YOU! A brilliant team of secret agents.

Operation Mindfall is without a doubt in my mind one of the most creative and high-tech outdoor games on the market. I’m just so impressed by the tech! AIM Escape’s version in particular takes you through some of the most beautiful parts of London but through the eyes of the super secret spy organisation W.I.S.E. It’s perfect for tourists and locals alike!

This experience was so well executed, we were really impressed with it! The augmented reality aspects worked brilliantly and the story was great, with all of the puzzles well themed and great fun to solve. The difficulty level wasn’t too high but the variety of different puzzles was fantastic, with a big bag of tricks to keep things interesting.

Can you close the magic portal once and for all 🤔

Can you save the world from this mind controlling virus 🦠 🤔
