Stopped in Tallinn for a cruise and took the opportunity to play a room. We chose this as their newest offering. 

It was a great start, setting a creepy atmosphere and clever use of props. The room is fairly linear relying on taking in the story.

You need to vigilant on looking for things that have dropped. Not everything was signposted very well. Some of the puzzles were clever and satisfying to solve. Though was very slight on the puzzle front. 

Still had fun and immersed in the experience. Would recommend if visiting Tallinn.

The actor is certainly Russia’s best kept secret. Ours, Marcus, was excellent, even if he was partial to a drink and tried to foil our endeavour. However, he made an unforgettable experience. The theming, set up and immersion was great. The only reason it wasn’t perfect as some of the tech wasn’t well signposted or user friendly. Try not to miss all the details, otherwise points are lost. Loved it and would definitely recommend. 

Think we all fell in love with Marcus after this!

Played this game whilst in Bournemouth with my Sister and her children. They loved it as they had never played a room before. However, the puzzles didn't make a lot of sense, the tech was broken/props damaged. The space felt cramped with the five of us. Felt way too commercial. I wouldn't recommend.

Fun and very different experience. 

Some of the rooms worked much better than others but will always be memorable due to how different it was. 

Worth checking out as it does make you laugh and can scare you at the same time. 

All senses will be tested.

For an older game, I wasn’t sure what to expect. However, it was a great surprise. It was our 11th game of the week and this was as up there with the very best. All the puzzle made sense, thematically it was so cohesive. Tech element worked so well, allowing everyone to be included. Worth seeking out. GM was the owner and had a wonderful chat afterwards. Hopefully more great rooms to come.

I think after reading reviews online, you know this isn’t your typical escape room. It is an immersive experience in a futuristic landscape. It has the visual flair and some clever gaming elements taken from the cyber city computer game. Prepare to hack! The extras are a must. We had a real funny interaction with the GM and will forever stay in our memories!

Sets the mood right from the start, with important initiation phase and moving to the room. Clever devices throughout to separate the group and work together to get out. The set design is amazing and you really are immersed in this world. The room still holds up in 2024.

The room is inspired by the events of that fateful day and first person view of first responders that day. It easily could be a perfect game with some tweaks on how they show certain events or dealt with set pieces. There are a load of hidden details that cleverly interweaved in the room and told to you at the end. The room was probably a 4 but the explanation and ending did a lot of heavy lifting. Still worth playing for sure.

Nice moment when first seeing the room. Wow factor for sure throughout. Some puzzles will be punishing, but coming through the other side is so satisfying. Be prepared for everyone to have some physical interaction with the room. Would recommend you have someone with upper body strength but if not, I’m sure you will find an alternative way to make things work! So it!

So different to anything else in Barcelona as well as anywhere else we have played. For that alone, it is worth playing. Emphasis very much on physicality, which plays to my strengths but may put some others off. I would say that nothing is too troublesome, unlike Enterprise 4 as that I imagine could stump some groups. Competitive ending too. Embrace the fails.

Proper escape room where the puzzles are front and centre. It flowed very well not needing many prompts at all. It was a satisfying experience and loved a lot of set pieces. Would certainly recommend as a really great game.

Don’t want to spoil too much. Go in under the guise of receiving a massage and things turn from there. Many stand out moments and firsts for our group in an escape room. Loved the GM. Worth the trek to play for sure!

Best three things about this room:HostHostAnd host… Such funny interactions and use of space.  We didn’t find the puzzles too interesting or narratively make too much sense but that didn’t matter. We had a ball playing this out and never knew what to expect.

Difficult. One not to miss due to the theatrics. Story telling amazing. Sets incredible. Tension in abundance. Thinking outside of the box necessary. Wild imagination. For us - the sound and light display was difficult for us to make out or see everything. Led to some frustrating moments. 
However that may not be a barrier for you. Still unmissable for sure!

First of many rooms being played in Barcelona this week. Immersive play as soon as you start. This experience flowed very well for our time,  never really finding ourselves stuck but still have those “aha” moments. Really satisfying and a lot of fun to play. Some normal escape room etiquette is out of the window here.

Hate to be so down on a game, but this had no magic or fun. The puzzles were boring and uninspired. It was the case of searching everywhere and riddles/needing some outside knowledge. 

Hints had to come as nothing was clearly signposted. Considering the price and playing loudini’s recently, this was an embarrassment!

The Mecca of UK escape rooms. It certainly met expectation. I can see why they lead the way and enthusiasts seek them out. The stories are true. Elaine was a delight! 

The room was absolutely gorgeous and was in awe of the size/craftsmanship. 

Not five stars on basis of the lock heavy aspect. Puzzles were quite different to others we have played and challenged us as a group. Just one puzzle left us hanging. We should have noticed it!

Absolute puzzle fest. Worked so well for our group. I loved every moment, running around, devouring any puzzle available to me. Some subtle, others blatantly obvious to those paying attention. Lots of fun and worth checking out if puzzles are your thing.

Played it safe with level 2 as some of team are less adventurous. Nonetheless it didn’t take anything away from the creepy vibe and scary interludes. We’ve played stay in the dark and has a connective tissue with this game. Certainly worth a go and the setting is perfect for the room. Really enjoyed the experience and would highly recommend.

This is a difficult review. I think anticipation hurt this one. Hearing nothing but wonderful things. Some of the puzzles were clever and the design was top notch. 

I think the GM was too trigger happy with prompts and clues - also the padlocks didn’t fit overly well with the theme. We like to take our time in rooms but it all felt a little too rushed. Such a shame. Of course everyone’s mileage will vary.

Beautiful sets.

Very immersive.

Magical moments and wonderful attention to detail. 

A real highlight of our trip. Owner was gracious and engaging. Would recommend to anyone to play. Still smiling from it.

Didn’t know what to expect but we had a couple in our party more susceptible to scares. That made even more interesting. 

The puzzles were different and kept the creepy feel. Lots of team work which was a plus. 

Such amazing owners, who really love escape rooms.  Definitely worth a stop.

A-maz-ing - Even Craig Revel Horwood would give it a 10.  Easily in our top 3 ever. 

Just book it if you can. Feel very lucky we managed to book a time in our busy schedule.

Thoroughly enjoyed my time in this room. Didn’t care how long we were taking - I was distracted by all the nostalgia hits. Amazing finish too! Beware some puzzles you can’t do right away. Loved it and the soundtrack.

Nice to see a family run business and the set they have created was polished and immersive. The issue for our group was the fun factor. The puzzles just didn’t work for us. They were a little uninspired and lacked variety/intrigue. A real shame.

First room of our 11 room stint and it was a great start. The room just made sense and flowed so well. It’s non linear setup plays to our strengths as a group of 4. No hints needed which shows how well the experience has been constructed. Great owners. Definitely recommend seeking out.

Fun room with lots to feast your eyes on. We prefer the their other room but has a family vibe to it. Doesn’t take itself too seriously. Needed some hints here and there, so kept us on track. Great team and team original game.

My favourite of the three rooms. Well crafted, nice attention to detail and the puzzles flowed very well. Not at all disappointed based on the reviews I had read. I was hoping for an epic finale but felt it really didn’t achieve that. Spoilt by similar rooms in Europe. 

The main plus was the GM Aimee. They were amazing. Very funny, personalised the experience and loved their interactions. Couldn’t have been better. Thank you for a wonderful time.

One of Pier Pressures’ newest games. The theming was good, some different puzzles and a lot of team work encouraged. The GM was fun and kept wonderfully in character. The set and lead up was a little under developed given it is a relatively new. Fun room for family fun.

This worked so well going from the first to the second. As the reveal is cleverly put together. The room followed similar rules and logic as the first. We saw it more as a continuation. Encourage to split up and conquer. Worth a play if in the area! Good fun.

Candyland 1 and 2 was played back to back. The first part of our journey was about saving the production of 4 sweets. It started fairly linear and then branched to the 4 different machines. The room had props, searching and links between solving puzzles. It was colourful and entertaining. We were 58 seconds from the fastest time and didn’t expect it as we don’t normally worry about time!

It’s a very difficult game to rate, as it is very different to other experiences we have played. It definitely has the fun and feel good factor. Everything seems to be themed very well and great attention to detail. I agree that some of the props are tired but that didn’t let the experience down for us. I guess, we all agreed the set would have been better bigger. But did well with the space given. I think any age and experience level will love this game, maybe not for those looking for a tough challenge.

A very enthusiastic games master and very insightful. The game was beautifully designed and some fun mechanics involved. I can imagine kids would love this! The puzzles were on the easier side for us but still satisfying as lots of teamwork involved. Probably our favourite of the day in Broadstairs. Definitely recommend.

A great game and worth coming this way to play. The GM was straight in character and kept us immersed from the off. The room had challenging elements but it all made sense. The puzzles were well thought out and flowed well. Non linear which I love too. A great ending.

Our first Christmas room, in August! Didn’t make a difference as fully taken in by the experience. Love the fact that much of the start is non linear and naturally can split off to what takes your eye. Note not all puzzles are solvable straight away. I would recommend using a hint otherwise would miss out! Fun and unexpected ending. Brad was a great host too and joined in with our banter.

Roo and Charlotte, the hosts, were brilliant. Very inviting and captured the mood instantly. The room is very well designed and use of actor integral to the story. It was probably on the easier side for us as a little more experienced, we don’t even tend to focus on times so surprised we finished so early. Story had great flow and puzzles made sense!

Was inspired to play this room based on Stacey’s post. So glad I did. The game was so much fun! It hit the sweet spot for us as we got the game references. I agree, happily be in top 10 due to the fun factor. Amazing host Jamie who took the experience up another notch. Play this game!

I would avoid as it doesn’t make any sense or no flow to the game.

Absolutely great use of space and the setting is fantastic. So unexpected from the first look.

Such fun. Have to be silly in places. Very much enjoyed this room.

I wouldn’t have this in the top experiences as the puzzles seemed less logical for me. Great game and still worth doing if in Hamburg. Just didn’t strike the same cord as others.

This is such a fun concept. It’s a joy to play. The ending and the use of a prop is brilliant. Would really encourage people to play if in Berlin.

A authentic escape room experience. Loved the start, intro. The room is immaculate and immersive. The puzzles all seem to make sense and are fairly logical. No real wow moment as such. Just great puzzles.
