Great, well-built set with loads of content for enthusiasts.  I docked half a star because a couple of the puzzles were a little unoriginal but I'm being very picky.  Really I just want to leave room in case one of their other rooms turns out to be even better!

quite easy

The room was a bit on the short side (as a team of 2 we finished in 36 mins).  The puzzles were a bit mixed - a couple of nice ones and a couple of rather uninspired ones.

very easy

I was quite disappointed with this room after seeing some good reviews for Unescapable.  It was very short - we finished in just 25 mins as a team of 2 - and much of that time was spent on a tedious busy puzzle.  The set was good and the puzzles (aside from the previously mentioned one) were fine but there just wasn't enough of them.

I enjoyed this room enormously.  An original theme which makes a nice change and some excellent puzzles.

Another very enjoyable room from Paradox Parlours.  Quite a traditional theme but done very well.

We enjoyed this room a lot.  Some fun puzzles and cool tech.

immersive

Very cool set of an actual old airplane cabin.  Lots of stuff to like but I got a bit frustrated with how much collecting and transporting of things there was.  I prefer not to have to remember to scoop up 20 different things that I've found in room 1 and carry them along a crawling tunnel only to find that we accidentally forgot one and get stuck for a while not realising this.

I was a little disappointed in this room after seeing so many good reviews.  There's a lot of stuff to like about the room but I found several of the puzzles a bit uninspiring.

A fabulous set.  There was a fair bit of searching at the start which we found a tad tedious but there was also some very cool elements in this room.

Although Myialock seems to get better overall ratings we definitely preferred this room as the puzzles were more interesting.  Myialock has an excellent, immersive set which is, I suspect, why it tends to get the better reviews, but for those that appreciate the puzzles as much as the set, I think this is the room to go for.

A wonderful set but some of the puzzles were a tad proceedural for an enthusiasts.  I think this would be an excellent room for newbies and families though.

A very cool set with some great hi-tech puzzles.  We had a lot of fun playing this room.  A bit of slightly broken was a bit unfortunate but the venue did a great job of putting a workaround in place so we could still enjoy the room.

Another unmissable, epic room from Paradox Project.

We asked for a challenge by taking on this epic room as just a two.  What an adventure!  We did find it a little much with such a small group but they do recommend that you have a minimum of 4 players so that's really our fault.  I'm glad they let us do it as a two because I would have hated to miss out on it on our trip to Athens.

As others have noted, this room is showing its age a bit.  I found a couple of the puzzles to be a bit illogical which is why it doesn't get a higher rating, but it was very cool to have a whole house to explore and solve instead of just a room or two.

One expects great rooms from Co-decode and this latest room is no exception.  Different from a typical escape room - it's more like Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes meets Captain Sonar.  Wonderfully done and a lot of fun.

An unusual and interesting theme done well.

A small but fun room with a good range of puzzles.

We loved this very different escape room experience where you explore a real museum after hours.  Because they don't want you to go round taking apart museum artefacts there isn't much in the way of searching to do but instead you get to explore different rooms and interact with "exhibits" especially integrated for the escape experience.  We found the puzzles fun and the story compelling.

The game is probably best suited to smaller teams (we did it as a 2).  It's designed for you to stay together throughout so might not work so well for larger groups.

A strong story element to this room set in a real comms room from WW2.  I found it a tad frustrating as a team of 2 as it's a fairly linear room but everything is all in one place and it wasn't always obvious which bit you needed to look at next.  This meant a fair amount of time rehunting round the room seeing which bits were ready to be used.  But the puzzles were solid and it was really cool to see authentic props.

Fantastic setup in some of the original cells in the old gaol with authentic props.  Sometimes I find prison rooms a bit dark and damp but they've done such a good job at converting the old building that it managed to feel authentic without being grungy.

It's a pretty linear game in a fairly small space so a good one for smaller teams.

A different theme from the usual ones which makes a nice change.  Was good fun.

The set was amazing but I felt the puzzles in this room were not good.  A couple were very tedious and repetitive and some were just badly formed.  The host said that it was the "most difficult room in Margate" but I don't think the puzzles were hard per se, people just struggle because they aren't good, logical puzzles.

I really loved this room.  The puzzles fitted in really well with the theme and the set was amazing.  The only thing which let it down was a couple of the techy puzzles didn't work for us at first and we had instructions of the radio to "wiggle it around a bit".

We played this room in August but it didn't matter, it was still full of Christmas magic. A wonderful room to take kids to with lots for them to do while still keeping the adults on their toes.

A cool set and some fun puzzles.  I felt frustrated at a couple of the things we needed to do which stopped me giving this a slightly higher rating.

A perfect example of an early and traditional lock and search escape room.  The puzzles were all solid and logical but there are more interesting sets out there nowadays.

Quite a traditional room with lots of searching and padlocks.  But I still love that stuff and this was a great example of that type of room with a well done theme.
