This was game 4 of 4 for us at Pier Pressure in one day so we were pretty tired out by this point! It is their easiest game and we intentionally picked it last, so that we could do it after dinner and a couple of drinks in the evening. Not quite sure how much time we spent dancing vs doing puzzles but had a really great time, aided by a hilarious GM DJ Dizzy. Certainly adds to the experience doing an escape room with a 90s soundtrack blaring and the lights flashing - unlike any other room we've done. The puzzles are not up there in terms of difficulty but still satisfying, with one in particular that involves some good two player communication, and you'll have a good time doing it!
Absolutely fantastic; deserves its reputation as one of the best games in the UK as of 2019. Lengthy introduction from our GM who remained impeccably in character throughout. Usually a 4+ game but doable as a 2 if you work hard and split up. I am not sure there is anything I can find to say against this game - solid fun from start to end. The set dressing is absolutely fantastic and love the local theme. A couple of moments of comedy thrown in by the GM just added to the experience. I would recommend any of the Pier Pressure games but if you can only do one, I'd recommend this one.
Played as a 2 - normally a 4+ room - and got out, JUST, but worked hard for it. There are a lot of puzzles in this room. We had a blast, our GM was brilliant, nothing was too hard but a lot to do. I would recommend any game at Pier Pressure - clearly operated by enthusiasts. Set dressing was excellent and felt totally immersed in the world at hand.
Day trip to Pier Pressure to hit all 4 permanent games: none of them disappointed. This is their oldest game but still has some great puzzles. Great introduction from the GM (in theme), cute hint system, minimal searching (hooray!) and some great props and handmade puzzles. Team before us had unfortunately broken one game before us which they had struggled to fix - not their fault, but had to come into the room to help us complete. However, did this in theme so avoided breaking immersion. Not too hard and a good warm up game if going on to do their other "larger" games if you play in small groups.
