Amazing decor let down slightly by simple puzzles - unfortunately had to have the game master interrupt play and enter the room which wasn’t ideal

Absolutely fantastic idea to use local heritage as a theming for the room - why don't more places do this?

A fun room from a great franchise. Some interesting puzzles albeit a little bit sporadic in fashion - not very linear and sometimes a bit too much of a reach. Decor great although theming and story is a bit random. Wish our host had been a bit less clue happy but possibly should’ve made our preferences clearer. Not one to go out of your way for, but one to try if you’re in the locality or doing the other fantastic rooms.

A definite push for a team of two (hence the additional 15 minutes given) but such a delightful challenge. So so much to do in this room - tech done right! Couple of wow moments and everything looks stunning - a ‘must-do’ room!

Great theming and good use of props. Some puzzles I’ve not seen before which is hard for enthusiasts! Brush up your observations skills for this - loved every minute of this!

Fantastic room that is up there with the greats in the UK. Theming is fantastic and you really have got to play in a bigger team to get the most out of this room. Some great puzzles and fun moments - good for any level of experience. Really should be worthy of 5 stars but a few pitfalls exist. Unfortunately there was some broken tech in the room and games master had to intervene and enter the room at one point. Hosting was also okay but could’ve done with a bit of atmospheric story telling as we were never told the back story of the room. Also have to raise some conventional safety concerns - fractured plastic cutting one player’s hand, few heavy objects.. nothing severe but do be careful

Padlock heaven! Escape Quest delivers again, this time with a side of Christmas cheer. Fantastic room with some great puzzles, although I do think this was the easiest of the instalments. Hosting impeccable as always - every experience here always is very personable and you truly feel valued. Please support this company and play every room they’ve got!

great hostingbroken tech

Always dubious of ‘tech-driven’ games and this was no exception, tech sadly was broken a couple of times throughout the game but the host managed this very well. Imogen was a fantastic games master - an asset to the team. A few puzzles a tad illogical and most of them lacking a bit of depth. Sadly not up to the standard I would expect from Cave Escape but nonetheless an okay room.

As expected from Extremescape, great theming and mechanisms - you would never think the room is as old as it actually is! Puzzle progression a bit more difficult in this game, lots of head scratching and uncertainty (open your eyes more!). Good game and will be enjoyed by any and all!

Absolutely brilliant - mechanics in the room are great and really add to the experience. Be ready for several wow moments! Puzzles are good and love the theming. Progression in the room sometimes not obvious but all part of the challenge. Hint giving could sometimes be less obvious. Don’t miss this room!

Theming and hosting was incredible - great plot.  Some novel padlocks and mechanical elements which were really nice to see. Puzzles were good too. If I had to nitpick I would say that a live actor warning should be explicitly displayed on website as I am a total wuss and hate anything horror-based - nevertheless still really enjoyed the atmosphere! Accessibility also potentially an issue for some - crawling required and some heavy lifting/lifting at height necessary. Be careful as potential for trips and slips quite high as the room does get quite chaotic. Highly recommend!

good puzzles

A no-frills escape experience but definitely one for the padlock-lover. Non-linear room with a few clever puzzles - overall a great time albeit if a bit basic in theming/decor. Worth a shot if you’re in the area!

Chaplegate Mysteries returned with its third instalment - House of Illusion. Overall a very successful room and is buckets of fun. Puzzles are very intuitive and definitely a challenge for enthusiasts. Theming and immersion is spectacular, although I felt a certain je ne sais quoi was missing compared to their other two experiences. Regardless, support this incredible business as this is not one to miss!

The true star of Cluefinders, Remy's room was a great, if not somewhat linear, experience. Space is large and fun to play in with good décor throughout. Very heavy on searching so maybe not one for those who prefer puzzles or lack observation skills. Overall a really fun experience.

Some clever puzzles in this room but ultimately nothing ground-breaking. Theming is nice. Host was absolutely fantastic, very enthusiastic and attentive to teams. Worth a play but beware of low ceilings if you are a tall player!

Definitely a push for a team of 2, Spellbound is truly a puzzle delight. Theming is great and there is no shortage of things to do - split up and crack on! A great room and definitely not one to miss when in Derby. Slightly let down by the lack of ambient music but this is a very easy fix and would elevate the game significantly.

Dystopia is my favourite room from Make Your Escape. Some very interesting puzzles and great theming. No ambient music which was slightly jarring and spoiled immersion slightly but definitely worth a play.

Utopia is the sister room of Dystopia and is a complete 180 both in theming and puzzle approach. If you love tech, screens and buttons, you will love this room. Not my favourite room but some clever puzzles and all tech worked well (a miracle in itself!). Similar to all the other rooms, there was no ambient music - very strange.

Marketed as a suitable game for entry-level players, The Signal is also good for more experienced players. Some interesting puzzles but overall nothing that will stump the pros. Very strange choice to have no ambient music playing during the game - other reviews have mentioned it so maybe the system was broken. Shame as immersion was broken as could hear outside noises, staff members talking in control room etc… Overall, worth a go!

The first game in the Chapelgate Mysteries series does not disappoint! An absolute puzzle heaven inside, so much to do that it’s overwhelming but in the best possible way. Decor is brilliant, with a lot of stuff made in-house, creates a really immersive environment. Story is excellent, hosting even better. This will not disappoint!

Although a common theme amongst escape rooms, a good attempt is made to bring creative puzzles and story immersion. I personally found the room a little too dark and it made it impossible to see/read locks and codes at times - perhaps hiding a torch within the room for use would be good. Fear factor was also good - definitely worth a play alongside their two other stellar games!
