Really loved this little pint sized game. 13 puzzles to solve on cards, all very different and making use of the different printed materials in the box. Amazing what they could fit into that little card sized box! Was a lovely pre-dinner activity for 4 of us, but could easily be solved solo. Good variety of puzzles and no hints needed. Very nice.

A breathtaking set at first sight, brilliant smorgasbord of puzzles and lots of fun touches. Make sure you ask for a clue.even if you don't need one. Just loved it!

Wow really good room. Bit of a false start as some things aren't very clear to begin with but once we were past that, the rest of the room although small had a lot packed into it, and some extremely high tech stuff, which although fancy wasn't always obvious enough. Some very nice puzzles though, things I'd not seen before.

A lovely Christmassy twist on plan 52, basically the same game but with some elemental swapped out and a different storyline but mostly the same. Even though I played the original 18 months or so ago I found it still fresh!

This was ok! Lots of work has gone into the materials inside the envelope, nice quality and nice variety. There are 9 answers to get from out of the materials but each item has one answer and then it's done, there is no cross referencing between them. The puzzles were easy enough and we had to revisit a couple. A nice way to spend 40 or so minutes.

Absolutely brilliant. This, and their other game, are so original, so cleverly made, so much fun and with amazing soundtrack, tech, story and interactivity. The puzzles in this one are fun and just the right level of challenging, and this one even involves different types of activities which I won't spoil. You just have to go play this yourself because it is just SO good.

An improvement over the last chapter but we found that it was far too easy to answer puzzles out of order. We got the final success message while we still had two envelopes left to open. Some clever puzzles but also a few flaws that made it a little frustrating.

Lovely hosts, very capable remote agent and some really nice uses of tech and a good mix of puzzles to keep us busy. Did it as a work social experience and it worked very well. The inventory and online room scan website they use is great - very handy for when you want to explore on your own or look at something specific when the agent is looking elsewhere. Worked well too!

Worth it for the immersive feel, the theming and the actors. There is the odd jump scare and live actors , but you get whisked through quite quickly and there's really only one puzzle or thing to do per area, there are so many things in the county but there all glued down of course. As it's so dark sometimes it's very difficult to work things out or see important information. Did enjoy it though and the staff were lovely, the theming of the whole building is great and easy to get to by bus from the strip too.

Oh so beautiful! So much has been put into the theming and there is plenty to do through the room. We had a couple of moments of hmmm what do we have to do next but then some ahas that let us continue before long. Lots to read and one counting puzzle which I always find I suck at lol. But a brilliant first room, will definitely be back when they open another. Thanks to Emma the lovely GM!

Another lovely story from the past brought to life and yet again we find ourselves banged up in the authentic cells. This time split to begin with, working together to release our trapped friend and then escape the corridor and find the key using a trail of clues. Very cunning hiding places and tools, use of museum information and under the watchful eye of two jailors who were far more friendly than you'd expect, we had a lovely time!

The best intro to a game I think we've ever had, and a brilliantly themed room. Amazing just how many puzzles and tasks have been crammed into the space. Some really nice use of science tricks too for some puzzles which I've not seen before! Plus a wide variety of other puzzle types which was great. Heavily signposted room and very linear, great for families and newbies, which was fab as we were introducing friends to the hobby! Visually beautiful room which we all enjoyed.

We as enthusiasts introduced two friends to this as their first escape game! We all enjoyed it. Whilst essentially one large puzzle chest containing everything you need to work through, some clever touches have been added to make it more of an experience. Expect to be sat or stood, purely solving puzzles for the time. A great game for those with limited mobility. Brilliantly themed box and some very clever little tricks and techniques used to solve the puzzles. Would be super for families and first timers!

Just went straight to the top of my room list - such a lot of effort and thought has gone into this room. The soundscape, the decor, the props, the puzzles, it's all just wonderful. Hard to believe just how good it is. Get there and play this room as well as their others.

What an amazing first room this was from this family team - to have come up with the puzzles and the technology in this room is incredible - and their later rooms have just gone from strength to strength off the back of this room. Play this one first and appreciate it, then do all their other rooms too. Just amazing.

Wow. What an original idea well executed. The first puzzle is simple enough to get you started, and from then on it really does feel like you are taking a journey through time and place. Not at all like you are just going to new parts of the room by opening a door or a panel, but actually using a specific process, and solving puzzles to make it happen. I was more fond of one main area than the other, but the variety and amount of puzzles in each were still varied and numerous. Amazing decoration, fun voiceover, agree some music in the background would be nice - just something gentle and instrumental, or something applicable to each area as you get there :) I know the hosts are always tweaking and listening to feedback so good on them!

Oh I did really love this room. From the soundtrack, to the decoration, to the puzzles you had to do. I've not done a room so far where the puzzles just flowed so seamlessly from one to the other. That's not to say they were easy, they were a really nice level - but they all made sense and were very balanced in terms of physical and mental. Some lovely touches of humour too made this probably my favourite game here!

Really loved this game - mainly paper-based puzzles and a couple of videos and websites to extend the interactivity - very clever use of "magic" to drive some of the progress, and a nice element of having to deduce facts to complete the game. All in all a lot of effort has gone into this and we only found ourselves stuck a couple of times, but didn't need any hints, we just re-read the information and it became clear. The only negative was we weren't sure why we asked to do something with one of the physical props because we didn't need to, but then maybe we missed something?! Really enjoyed it anyway and would be a great family game - although we played as a couple.

A very simple game intro working out 4 numbers via morse code, manipulation and hunting. Took us 4m53s only but putting the code into the "chrono decoder" and getting the victory tune was the most fun part. Very fun mechanic!

Started off promising but we're soon having to make use of all of hints for some puzzles as they just didn't make sense. The last one wasn't even really a puzzle and didn't clue the answer correctly on the input screen. Frustrating at times. Cute concept but could have been better executed.

A cool new concept with promise, loved having the pop-up model and the clues and the web app for entry. A couple of the things you had to do didn't make total sense, and we had to make use of a few of the hints to be sure what to do next, and it didn't always make sense. Enjoyable experience generally just not all great puzzles.

The venue is nice, very inclusive and spacious. Maddie was a super sweet GM and very happy to work with us in terms of only if and when we wanted clues. The room was a little plain but there were some instant things we could solve and make progress. It is fairly linear with barely any searching to do and some physical and skill puzzles as well as logic and locks. One puzzle got "stuck" so we had to be given the answer as the reveal was no sadly longer possible. But apart from a few short moments of hmmm what next, we had some lovely aha moments and the puzzles were varied and mostly enjoyable. Would just be good to see some care and attention given to rooms in venues such as this. Also some clanking and dragging chains in the walls between us and another room next door were a bit distracting! Enjoyed it on the whole if not the best room we have done.

We were a group of 8 on holiday in the area who had emailed in advance to check we could play in English and told yes for this one. We split into two teams of 4, with a mix of those for whom this was their first ever escale, right through to me who has now done 90. On arrival our GM Melanie was superb, conversing with us in English or French as we needed. Apart from some parts of the game such as the Introductory video, some documents and labels which were in french, which we did not need to specifically use, the things that mattered were converted to English for us. The room is well decorated, the puzzles logical, fun and fitted the theme. Some great hiding places, use of tech and several bits of secret humour (for the more keen escapees who are able to translate them) which added to the experience. Also some brilliant use of retro tech which we found very enjoyable! Thoroughly enjoyed this room.

Well, how much more authentic can you get than busting out of an actual prison cell? Certainly no more than here at St Neots Museum. Banged up for your protests for a new bypass, your team must first escape your cell and then the prison block itself, then use the information around you to solve a mystery that the guards quite frankly can't handle, preferring instead to play board games! The hosting by Kate and Amy was wonderful, the puzzles challenging and the use of the original cells and information in the museum cleverly woven in. A lovely chance to explore this location and have some fun after hours!

Wow what can I say. Jason has made an absolutely incredible multi-linear game here, cramming more puzzles into one room than I could have possibly imagined. More than enough to keep you in the room for the full 60 minutes, but knowing you have to get out before then keeps the pressure on! Some incredibly clever uses of items, codes, furniture and information to lead you on multiple paths through this fiendish vault of treasure. We did very well as a two, getting out with £33k. On arrival we had a fantastic intro to the experience, the humour and energy that Jason brings to the experience is awesome, and the "accomplishments" he awards you are sublime. I would say that some things were looking a little tired in the room and/or were not operating optimally, but it didn't really hamper the game. With all the will in the world I truly hope this experience opens up again in a new location with refreshed interior and when it does you must go do it.

Sone good puzzles, some not so good and a little frustrating where you needed hints just to know where to start. Clever use of websites but lacked finesse and quite a few spelling mistakes. Nice package of artefacts, good quality and a nice progression through the story. All in all good fun but not the best out there.

What a superb idea! An escape room in the comfort of your home or that comes to you for your event or office. Our host Captain Marine arrived on time, set up and transformed our room and then ran two games back to back for us. The puzzles were clever and enjoyable, the props, music and theming spot on, and a very fun experience all-round. Highly recommend to anyone looking for something a bit different for a birthday/event/just because!
