Thanks for a fantastic review - I'm glad to hear you appreciated all the extra details in the game as well as the puzzles themselves. We hope you'll be back to experience the new room from mid-February onwards!

Room was well designed and props and puzzles were ingenious. Host's level of help and assistance pitched just right to help us get the most out of our game. Just failed to get out in time but very enjoyable despite this

We'd only done one or two rooms locally before this one but this was the best so far. Finding our way into the seemingly deserted industrial unit where it's located just added to the sense of anticipation! The host was incredibly friendly and helpful and...More
