Crystal Maze meets Escape room with a tonne of puzzles to do across a big set, perfect for keen enthusiasts
Played: 3 Apr 2022 Team size: 4
Different take on the escape room format, some great theatrical moments but a few frustrating puzzles
Played: 2 Apr 2022 Team size: 4
A massive set with a tonne to do made this a special room. Lovely hosts!

A really immersive and well put together experience, lots of great sets and tech, very special. Felt a little short and puzzle light, but as a piece of immersive theatre it was brilliant.

Great looking room, but too many dark sections and a few frustrating puzzles and slightly broken props.
Played: 12 Feb 2022 Team size: 4
A really enjoyable room - the puzzles were all so satisfying and we felt a great flow throughout with good music and a good sense of story

We were a little disappointed after a strong showing in their other room, the hosts were great but the puzzles were simple and padlock heavy

Lovely hosts who were clearly enthusiasts brought us a well decked out room with a few unique puzzles and bonuses. Good fun but a bit padlock heavy for a new-ish room.

pretty standard room and puzzles, just a little worn for a fairly newly built room. No frustrations apart from the game master offering up solutions a bit too quickly!

Enjoyable but shorter than the first one!

Another solid enjoyable room from Riddlr, would be great for newcomers!

Strong immersion with this one, some really unusual moments and special bits. Good first outing only let down by a few odd choices of puzzles, hopeful for their future rooms!
Played: 21 Nov 2021 Team size: 4
A few nice bits of theming, pretty nice set, but definitely their first outing in puzzle design - quite a few uses of red herrings or logical leaps let this experience down for us.
Played: 3 Nov 2021
Amazing sets and tech, massive rooms, but slightly unintuitive puzzles and a slightly disappointing ending - we finished it with too much time to go, definitely felt like it needed more puzzles!
Played: 1 Nov 2021 Team size: 4
A nice intuitive set of puzzles with some unique physical interactions made this a solid room, but definitely suited to newcomers. To us it felt like it needed perhaps another 25% more puzzles!
Played: 2 Oct 2021 Team size: 4
Apart from a few powercuts getting in the way, we had a brilliant time with this room - or should I say rooms - there was tonnes to see and do here, felt like a really full action packed hour.
Played: 2 Oct 2021 Team size: 4
Great sets and multiple rooms only let down by basic puzzles, but definitely a good beginner friendly room. We had some interruptions from power cuts!
Played: 12 Sep 2021 Team size: 4
A fairly unique concept of lots of short rooms leading to an end room with a scoring system, but felt a bit weathered and rough around the edges and resulted in perhaps too much chaos! Still pretty fun and unique!
Played: 12 Sep 2021 Team size: 4
Set in an actual cave, the puzzles fit the story really well and were very challenging. Greatly enjoyed, but not for newcomers!
Played: 11 Sep 2021 Team size: 4
Perhaps the room was slightly overhyped by other enthusiasts and a bit poorly aged / badly ran but we left this room a bit disappointed. The core element was still pretty special and unique, but it definitely felt like it needed a revamp

A great setting of an actual bank vault opened this awesome heist. We robbed a lot of money - probably the highlight of the room was to steal as much as possible by solving as many different puzzles, and a nice large room too. Definitely recommend playing!

Interesting take on escape rooms - break in and spying stuff, cool concept, hands on, hope to see more explored here.

A great looking room, really clean techy puzzles that were totally my vibe. Thoroughly enjoyed from start to finish, unique theme, and the puzzles felt like they served a purpose.

Apparently updated during 2020. Really nice looking room, with some challenging puzzles. A good time was had.
Played: 24 May 2021 Team size: 4
Authentic puzzles to the theme and a nice extension added when we finished the room with 25 minutes to spare! Wanted more theming after their pirate room but the puzzles were solid.

A few technical issues let down an otherwise well themed decent escape room
Played: 18/9/20 Team size: 2 Outcome: Successful escape!
great humour and story with solid puzzles made this a decent experience
Played: 17/9/20 Team size: 2 Outcome: Successful escape!
a really unique theme, intuitive puzzles, great soundtrack and the nicest hosts!
Played: 23/7/20 Team size: 2 Outcome: Failed :-(
Great themed room, converted from a bus with awesome props and tech. We played it when it was pretty much brand new so a few tweaks to the hints and puzzles and this will be the best room we've played in the south west!

Great puzzles and tech, well hosted through zoom. Recommended!

Fairly simple puzzles, but nice website and video clips made this more immersive than most online escape games.

Played: 2/5/20 Team size: 2

Great tech, well suited for people in different locations, fun code breaking puzzles.

Played: 19/4/20 Team size: 2

Fun to communicate puzzles only you can see to the other person.

Solid puzzles, nice website. Just lacked the normal panic room charm.. wonder if they purchased it from another company?

Played: 30/3/20 Team size: 2

Nice introduction to online escape rooms. Didn't enjoy the heavy reliance on riddles with google maps too much!

Played: 29/06/19 Team size: 3

Nice technology lots of cool minigames, but doesn't quite match the satisfaction of a normal escape room

Played: 19/11/17 Team size: 2

Did a testing run for this, really cool combo of educational while solving unique puzzles

Played: 14/04/17 Team size: 2

Great theming and true to the game show. The format limits the amount you get to play and the cost is pretty steep unfortunately!

Played: 25/07/17 Team size: 4
Very poorly decorated room with average puzzles. Some of which lacked logic and need guidance from the game master. A fun surprising conclusion but otherwise the worst room I've experienced from Puzzlair.
Played: 23/04/16 Team size: 5
Not a great themed room, and some unclear puzzles / bad riddles took the fun away a bit, but the ability to race other teams in identical rooms is a nice feature. Nice finishing area, wish the room itself looked more like it!
Played: 08/10/16 Team size: 4
Great themed corridors and entrance area but the room itself was lacking a bit. A few unique puzzle mechanics and the ability to race other teams in identical rooms is a nice feature.
Played: 30/3/19 Team size: 3
Standard escape room. Plenty of padlocks, big use of riddles, racing aspect being the best bit.
Played: 28/08/15 Team size: 4
Rough beaten up decor and not great theming. A few nice puzzles, but not very immersive experience. Some unhelpful clues given.
Played: 23/11/17 Team size: 4
A relatively nice looking room, fairly standard puzzles, but a couple of frustrations with poor quality locks resulted in many minutes of wasted time. Needs a proper clue delivery system. A nice setting but needs more puzzles, it felt like not much more than half an hour of content
