Another good room from EscapeKent with great themeing and set design. An abundance of puzzles that flow with the theme and small jumps here and there to add a creepy factor. Transition to rooms is accomplished well and the ending is fun.

The themeing and design here are great with so much achieved in a relatively small space. You are immersed in your exploring of a pirate ship with plenty of fun, engaging puzzles covering all types from logic to physical and teamwork. Games that make you work as a team are always enjoyable and this game has accomplished that. Another solid ending to leave satisfied

The themeing and design are simplistic yet effective here and fits in with the storyline of being held captive... Why would you have impressive decor? The transitions between rooms are flawless and clever. The puzzles match the room and there is enough to keep you busy. The ending is a clever idea that gives you a great sense of satisfaction and completes your escape. Great game

Amazing themeing and design, host fully in character and adds to this. You start split up which I always enjoy as teamwork and communication are key as well as all parties feeling involved in puzzle solving. Logic and observation are beneficial here. The elements in the room and props are fun and fit seemlessly with the storyline and theme. Excellent room and hosts

The owners and hosts at Hounds are amazing, welcoming and easy to get carried away talking to. The GM was in character from start to finish and added humour. The puzzles start off on a logical and straightforward style and progress in difficulty as you move through the room and teamwork is integrated. Fun elements are present also. Theme and design are great too. Excellent room and enjoyable

broken tech

We had a few mishaps with the room with a puzzle not reset and elements that once complete weren't activating. The theme and set are good but didn't transition that well between rooms. Not a room I would recommend

A simplistic room in terms of theme and design. The puzzles were good with plenty to do. An okay room with nothing to really take away as memorable or great moments

immersive

The set and themeing are immersive and you start outside the house and have to gain entry to start. The puzzles were fitting with the theme although it would've been nice to have magic implemented in to the odd puzzle. A good game but no wow factor

illogical

The game had some nice touches such as puzzles that required you to think outside the box when in your cell. But one element/task really annoyed me as we were told as part of the brief not to wake the guard and when we were stuck and asked for a clue we were told to make noise to wake the guard, this contradiction is frustrating and ruins the experience. Ending was a bit flat too

A good game and okay design. Won't be high in people's lists of rooms but not a bad game either.

This game was set in a plane shelter building which added to the theme and storyline. The host and owner was a fine chap and we enjoyed having a chat with him before the game started. The theme and design were immersive to the story. The puzzles were varied and logical. A good game and enjoyable

A journey with multiple rooms that was not expecting. You start in a dark room and make your way into well designed & themed rooms. The puzzles are logical and one particularly fun element requiring skill with hand eye coordination. Great hosts who were happy to chat about escape rooms as a whole

I really liked the integration of magic tricks as puzzles that compliments the room and story. There are plenty of puzzles to get through which made this an intense game but it was clever, original and fun.

A well designed and themed room that will immerse you in to a jungle with a lovely calming water feautre. The puzzles are varied with observational, logic and searching. The hosts complete the experience as they are genuine and easy to chat to

TimeQuest are a great company and hosts with great games. This game is a logical/observational players preference and as that type of player I did enjoy this room. The tech puzzles are clever and there is plenty to keep you engaged and busy.

The website does a good job selling the company and rooms but the experience is disappointing. The room themeing is good but the puzzles are unoriginal and the ending leaves you deflated rather than the clever twist it's intended to be.

A fun, clever room that is enjoyable. The owners are amazing hosts and enthusiasts who were happy to chat and not rush you through. The game is well designed and themeing is part of the fun. 

originalfunnygreat hostingquite easy

A good game for interaction and different from the usual escape room. It felt like the interaction is a way to lengthen gameplay as ultimately the puzzles/tasks are fairly easy to complete. A fun game and something different.

I have a lot of time and appreciation for owners who chat with guests and share their own experiences and Michael is in this category. Being in a hop farm building, the shape of the room was great for the theme and designing of the room, which did immerse you in your quest at Camelot. The puzzles require teamwork and decent scavaging. An enjoyable room and hosts

You start handcuffed to a rail and head covered... Once you can see the theme is simplistic but effective to immerse you in to the killer's test of life or death. The puzzles aren't linear so your team will plenty to do and solve. The final part is a clever transition and good ending to the game.

The owners and staff are great at Mythologic and are passionate about escape rooms, spending time to chat with you when you arrive. The theme and design are good and you do feel like you're in a creepy atmosphere. The GM does a good job with periodic scares that will make you jump but this isn't over the top or excessive and adds humour and suspense. The puzzles are the weaker part of the room which is a shame but still enjoyable
original

Not a bad attempt to immerse players into the world of Fast & Furious. The theme and design of the garag are good and brings you in to the storyline. The clue system I wasn't a fan of and we had technical problems with some elements of the room. The remote control car puzzle is original but feels more of a gimmick. A good room but lacking in substance

After the delight that was Inbound, this game was a step backwards and I was stunned to think the same people made the two rooms. This shouldn't deter people from Escape Hub though, just this game

This game is surprising big once you get through the first room and enter an authentic design of a street during a world war with multiple buildings/rooms to work through. The game isn't strictly linear so you can work separately whilst also needing teamwork on some puzzles. The set design and themeing are great and the puzzles match the room well. Great game

The fact you're in an original historic room used for comms during the war is such an immersive experience and the room is masterfully and cleverly contructed due to it being a listed building. The GM was a great host and spent time talking about the construction after the game. The puzzles were appropriate to the theme and room with logic and teamwork being at the forefront. The room is fun, clever and enjoyable.

I NEED more versus rooms! This is the only versus room I've played and it amazing! You can probably guess I was on the winning team :) I loved the thrill of going head to head with another team and the indicator in the room showing the progress of the other team was a great touch to increase the intensity and fun. The room was immersive barring a few parts such as looking out the porthole to a wall, but the inside of the room was good. The puzzles were mixed with differing levels of difficulty. And as the winning team you get the added feature of escaping the submarine, a nice little touch which could be expanded on.

The GM was great and straight in to character as a strict teacher with a few quick telling offs, this and the old style school room fully immerses you in to the theme and has a great nostalgic feel with elements like the projector. The clue system was also clever with a good theme tune. Lots of fun to be had and a good mix of puzzles which stick to the theme and fit different lesson types.

The room starts by descending to a courtyard and needing to gain access, the set here is simplistic and yet immerses you in to your challenge and the theme. Inside the design is still aligned and there is plenty to work through with some fun puzzles/games to complete. The ending is original and humorous. Thoroughly enjoyed this room.

This is definitely the best pirate themed room I've experienced, the themeing and set design are brilliant, immersive and creative. Puzzle wise there is everything for every type of player and all fit with the story and theme. The last puzzle was a great ending for achievement and wrapped everything up nicely.

I know there is a lot of love for this room, but I came away a little deflated as we managed to solve the last puzzles simply by inserting a few things and not needing any logical deductions. So sadly the ending was abrupt. The set design and immersion are great and the Escapement are a lovely company and team who make great rooms. The room started great and there are clever puzzles and a nice transition from rooms. Had we earned the ending with logical solutions I feel we would have enjoyed this room more.

Another great room from the Clever Dilemma team! The themeing and set design are again at a high standard and really immerse you in to the storyline. The room is abundant with puzzles of all types and difficulties that will keep you entertained whilst progressing with the story and your ultimate solution.

A little hidden gem in the quaint traditional town of Faversham and this room is well worth the journey. The owners are lovely, welcoming and willing to chat escape rooms which I personally appreciate. The room design is to a high standard and definitely gives you the immersion of being in a castle keep fit for Dracula. The puzzles are progressive from simple to start and increase in difficulty with plenty to keep you busy.

The name and concept of this game intrigued us to play and we wasn't let down by the Chip shop. Such a humorous room and ingenious clue system that is nostalgic and fun. The company name fits in with the storyline, it's otherworldly and definitely takes you an unexpected journey. Puzzles are linear and stick with the story and theme. An enjoyable experience

immersivestory-drivenpoor hostingquite difficult

A tough review due to an amazing concept, good themeing with it being based on the Kingsman films, being true to the film and a clever idea for the end... But massively let down by the GM and execution by purposely trying to make the initial start difficult. The GM has an air of arrogance and seemed to undermine before the game even started... My biggest gripe was being told we wouldn't have to search for anything and yet at a dead end at the beginning, was told to search for something we needed. And then informed us he wouldn't be available for 5-10 minutes, luckily we had found a flow after the hard start. Such a shame that poor GM and needlessly difficult elements let down what could be a great room.

Although I had a bad experience with broken tech that meant a few puzzles/tasks we couldn't fulfil ourselves and were simply given the answer, I don't want that to reflect in my rating as the room has a lot of potential and deserves the credit for the effort that has gone in to it with another brilliant theme and set design. With working tech this will be a another great room by Rob and Nikki

Another well designed room with great themeing that immerse you effortlessly in to the game. Rob and Nikki have the set design perfected in their rooms and are amazing hosts who are happy to chat away and not just churn through customers. The room requires a high level of attention to detail and flows well whilst not being strictly linear.

This was my favourite of the 3 original rooms at Hysteria. Impressive themeing and use of a smaller than expected space. You're immersed in to a medieval yet magical atmosphere. The puzzles were engaging and the integrated character was clever. And the ending is definitely one for the extroverts out there. Shame this one has gone so I'm glad I got to experience it

As always with Pier Pressure the hosting is impeccable and a intuitive clue system. An intense room with lots to keep you engaged and busy. Great themeing with nice touches such as the pinball machine. We were commended for our performance as a 2 player team and the room was enjoyable. 

Team size: 2 Outcome: Successful escape!

A clever room to utilise a small space, by splitting the team up and forcing you to communicate to progress it engages and requires little room. An inventive twist on securing yourself in a room rather than escape. Some elements of the puzzles were disjointed and a good room for logical thinking escapists. Sadly no real elements for more physical/technical players.

A true marvel in every element of an escape room... Perfect GM hosting, stunning set design and inventive, enjoyable puzzles for every type of player! The set really does make you feel like you're in the lanes in Brighton on a mild evening and the clue system is clever with a funny, engaging host. The puzzles capture every element of team work, logic, physical and fun. A must for every escapist... Bravo Pier Pressure! 

Team size: 2 Outcome: Successful escape!

A decent enough room with a mystery to solve and clues helping you to find the killer. An improvement on defective detective but not carrying any real excitement factor.

To date this is my only failed room, early on in our escape room career. Had we had more rooms under our belt I'm sure we would've escaped and by no count means this is a bad room or experience. A traditional escape room with some interesting elements and puzzles. The one downside I found was the use of a vent despite the briefing focusing on not touching elements such as sockets, etc. And it was this that cost us our time. Other than that a good room and spawned an empire

Whilst expanding their domain in to other experiences and ideas, the Panic Room took their foot off the gas with escape rooms...so it's great to see them back with a well executed and visually appealing room! Fans of a certain wizard will thoroughly enjoy this game with intuitive, relatable puzzles to the theme. It may be on the more difficult side for a younger audience but a good comeback to escape rooms and recommended

The themeing and set are delightful, and make you feel like you're in Oz. The puzzles require both rummaging and logic yet at times disjointed. We solved a puzzle early but as we weren't supposed to solve it yet the GM didn't activate the next part which I understand, but they didn't tell us we had solved it but we're ahead of the game so we believed the puzzle was a red herring. I try not to let hosting take away from a rating and I'm happy the rating wouldn't be higher even with good hosting. A good family room to challenge both children and adults

I really wanted to love this room with a storyline that excited me, it's just a shame that the overall experience wasn't as exciting. The Live actor is a nice touch with not too much interaction and adding a humorous touch. The room didn't seem to flow and had faults in being disjointed. A nice room with enjoyable elements, just missing that certain je ne said quoi

The GM greets you at the start with a jump and sets off the tone of the story that you want to escape this hotel and it was great hosting and acting. A fun, challenging room despite the fact some components were deteriorated and not functioning correctly. An intense ending with plenty to keep you busy. One of the better games at the Panic Room
