It was just ok. Very easy. A lock broke and so our host had to spend a good few minutes in the room trying to unlock it (she couldn't) but luckily it didn't hinder the progress of the game. Ruined the immersion big time though. The whole game just felt a bit flat.

Played: 7 May 2022 Team size: 2 Time taken: 27 Outcome: Successful escape!

One of the worst I've ever played. Host had no idea what she was doing, had to enter the room several times to reset things she'd forgot to reset. The main centre piece of the room is a ticking down bomb and you cut a wire when you're done. She couldn't figure out how to fix it so said we should just walkie talkie her which wire we would cut. This was made harder when she later (after entering the room) forgot to take it back out with her. Nothing particularly original and extremely easy.

Rubbish. Barely anything to do, looks cheap, barely any props or story and our host had no idea what she was doing.

Played: 7 May 2022 Team size: 2 Time taken: 65 (of 90 mins) Outcome: Successful escape!

This is supposed to be 40 mins outside then 50 mins in a vault. Outside takes like 25 max and then you're thrown into a room with no briefing. The lights don't work and considering it's brand new it's really dusty and everything looks well-used. It was very easy.

Far too easy. A resounding meh from me. Host was nice.

This is superb. The less you know the better. One of my favourite games ever.

This one's perhaps the least 'immersive' game at LE but we loved it as we just clicked with it and felt like mega geniuses all the way through.

Nice use of a small space and some really clever theming at times.

Played: 6 May 2022 Team size: 2 Time taken: 48 Outcome: Successful escape!

Lots of fun and some very fun special effects. We fell foul to search failure a few times!

Amazing game - very difficult but we relish that these days. The start is absolutely brilliant!

Good fun - the most padlock-y game I'd say in the venue.

Nothing groundbreaking but a fun little game.

Crap. Well easy, barely any puzzles and one of you spends the majority of it locked in a cupboard.

Superb. Some absolutely masterful uses of tech. Loads of laugh out loud moments. Just terrific.

Beautiful set, loads of good puzzles and a terrific story. Some bits made me gasp both in terms of set and story.

Played: 4 Apr 2022 Team size: 2 Time taken: 72 Outcome: Successful escape!

Gorgeous set, some unique puzzles and great use of tech. Took us a while to get going but that's because we're objectively bad at searching.

Played: 17 Apr 2022 Team size: 2 Time taken: 45 Outcome: Successful escape!

I liked this game a lot. It's puzzle-lite but that's because it's much more physical/story driven than a lot of games.

This game is flawless. It's got a set like nothing I've ever seen. Honestly the less I tell you the better.

I liked it. Looks beautiful and it's absolutely spotless. Lots of puzzles. Definitely on the easy side though.

Lots of fun - took us a long time to get going. Loads of puzzles and some interesting bits we hadn't seen before.

Played: 9 Apr 2022 Team size: 2 Time taken: 42 Outcome: Successful escape!

Really like this game. Loads to do, loads of puzzle variation, lots of fun little surprises and a couple of jump scares. Highly recommended.

Played: 8 Apr 2022 Team size: 2 Time taken: 43 Outcome: Successful escape!

It was pretty good, looked great. Bit of broken tech at the end that takes away from the story.

Too easy. Hate that you get out *SPOILER* 

with a fob - totally off theme.

This is a terrific game in a lovely space. Flows really well, loads of interesting puzzles. Only reason I knocked half a star off is our host was what I would describe as 'uninterested'.

Played: 2 Apr 2022 Team size: 2 Time taken: 56 Outcome: Successful escape!

It's okay, but it's a bit bootleg and the hosting wasn't great - we were left clueless for AGES.

Absolutely superb. So stupid and so immersive. Unbelievable soundtrack. Maybe my favourite game ever.

Lots of fun in here - some good hidden gem puzzles. Bit more searchy than the other games at PP.

Great fun. Really difficult - lots of squinting involved! Our host was terrific.

Not hard to see why it's number one. Phenomenally thought out and decorated and our host was absolutely superb.

Really like this. Really silly and tongue in cheek. Very easy to get into. Love that it's perfectly designed for a team of two.

Good fun and looks nice. Nothing groundbreaking.

It was ok and it looks great, but it's quite easy and there's a sound puzzle, which I'm not a huge fan of.

Played: 19 Mar 2022 Team size: 2 Time taken: 54 Outcome: Successful escape!

One of, if not the best Breakout game we've played, plus we saw some things we haven't seen before.

Boring, too easy and not enough puzzles.

Played: 12 Mar 2022 Team size: 2 Time taken: 48 Outcome: Successful escape!

This is good fun - I like that there are some more physical aspects than in most rooms. Lots of cool tech going on, and the host was nice (even though we didn't really need her).

Was surprised by this given it's just in the basement of a cafe, but there was some really good tech in it and it was really immersive. We absolutely smashed it but didn't feel like we'd wasted our time or money.

Played: 11 Mar 2022 Team size: 2 Time taken: 48 Outcome: Successful escape!

This was fun with some good little twists and well story driven. There was one puzzle involving clothes though that was basically not solvable.

Played: 4 Mar 2022 Team size: 2 Time taken: 32 Outcome: Successful escape!

It's okay, but when we debriefed together at the end the first thing we both said was that it was sparse.

Played: 4 Mar 2022 Team size: 2 Outcome: Failed :-(

It's fun - the games here aren't out of this world, but this is the best so far. You can only play it if you set a record in another room. Some of the cluings were a bit wrong and the grammar on them is bad.

Brilliant - lots of things I've not seen before, beautifully decorated and brilliantly story driven.

Absolutely baffled this has so many high ratings - I'd say it's the worst of my 85 games. Poor theming, illogical puzzles, we had to rely on clues far too much which suggests a lack of signposting, half of it is broken and shoddy. Nah.

Crazy that this should be £75. It's got about seven puzzles in total and they're mostly all far too easy. SPOILER:

 one's a smell puzzle which I absolutely hate.

Good fun. Plenty to do. Got out just in the nick of time.

Played: 24 Feb 2022 Team size: 2 Time taken: 58 Outcome: Successful escape!

Hmmm. Too much crap everywhere you don't need. It's meant to be linear but we were able to bypass about half of it and then kept finding clues that meant we were going back to stuff we'd already bypassed, which was frustrating. Can't tell you how much crap you don't need there is everywhere.

FAR too easy. Never gotten through a room so quickly. Theming is ok.

Really enjoyed it actually - wasn't expecting much for one just stuck in a climbing centre but it was good fun with some tricky puzzles and good theming.

Loved this game - well decorated, immersive, good level of difficulty. We flew through it. Would be a great first room for someone.

Great fun - some puzzles a bit logic-leapy and don't match the theme of the room, but we did enjoy ourselves.

Played: 19 Feb 2022 Team size: 2 Time taken: 35 Outcome: Successful escape!

It's....okay. Needs a good clean. Some clever bits. Fairly easy considering it's their hardest room I think.
