Although the goal is to deactivate a bomb, it was us the players who came out defused and confused by the standard. The room was small, illogical at times and a timely puzzle added that came across as simply to fill time (albeit the better puzzle of the room). Ending was disappointing too. I'll always have a affinity towards the Panic Room as my first escape room, but this room was a let down and with it taking place of million dollar date night, it simply didn't keep to the standard I expected. It may be a good early beginners room but not for experienced players

A bomb to defuse is the goal of this game.  For me this room was marred by two puzzles, one is a logic that I'm still not sure how I solved and even the GM didn't seem really sure as to the logic and the other was a long winded communication exercise, whilst technically good it took too long to achieve the aim and the ending was a bit of a let down, there's a lot of excellent rooms at this venue, play this if you are a completist.

As junior bomb disposal technicians, you’ve been assigned some routine practice - which definitely won’t escalate into a more dangerous situation, no sirree. Resurgency is located in the space that once housed two player game Million Dollar Date Night, and while it appears to be more than twice the size that that was, it’s still not a huge game area. It is, however, very efficiently used with a wealth of gadgets and puzzles everywhere you look.

The first Panic Room game that I've not enjoyed. It's impressive what they've squeezed into a small footprint and I think there's a solid core game here but we kept on finding aspects of it that disappointed us.
We are thrown in at the deep end whilst training to be bomb defusal experts when our skills are needed sooner than expected!
We entered into a small room dimly lit with flashing lights. It was good for purpose but not thematically on par with some of the other panic room games.
This small, yet perfectly formed escape room is great fun and a fantastic example of how simplistic ideas can turn into an hours-worth of excitement.  

This was my favourite game from my day out in Gravesend, it wasn't the prettiest room we played, however it did still look good, and look the part, but it was definitely the most fun, a good variety of puzzles meant there was no chance of boredom, and a room that required good teamwork, thoroughly enjoyable.
