I think this is my favourite game so far (ever). The theming is very well done, and it's just really good fun. The puzzles were the right amount of annoying!
Only minor quibble is that we did manage to irretrievably lose a component that meant we had to be given the solution to that puzzle, although I imagine they've addressed that since we did the room.
Honestly, we played this with too many of us. Do it either with a small team, or inexperienced players. We're relatively experienced, and there are lots of parallel puzzles. I don't remember how long we took but our host appeared breathless at the door 30 seconds after we escaped as he hadn't quite paid attention and didn't expect us to finish so fast!
As a guide, we turned up exactly on the dot of when we should have but somehow still missed the communal briefing with all the other teams. Then after we got out, we had our victory photo, a nice chat with out host, a bit of a wait while they worked out if there were any free slots for other puzzles later in the week (they try to sell you a reduced rate voucher for another game afterwards, but as we were only around for a week there was no point if we couldn't use it), chatted some more, and still didn't see a single other person (we could hear them!) before leaving.
We escaped... Debatably. We were there to test the game, so having worked out all the puzzles and through some technical issues, we were apparently the first team to complete this room. Based on our feedback to them I can only assume they made radical changes, as I've since seen a lot of photos on Clue HQ's Facebook page of people escaping this room. When we did it, this was hands down the hardest room we had ever done. We're not terribly experienced - I've done about 10 - but this was definitely the toughest.
A couple of potential spoilers, so you might not want to read further, but some people might be intrigued to know; there are no padlocks in this room! I think that's pretty cool.
