Hard for just two players. Good story and very immersive
Great room - have done quite a few and thought this was one of the most difficult (in a good way). It was just too clever for us in the end but every time we asked for a clue we were like ‘Ohhhh of course’ whereas sometimes you think ‘…well that’s a stretch.. never would have got that’. We were told we weren’t far from the end but I would have liked to have been shown (briefly - not the details of the clues) what we would have seen to get the full experience of the room.
Only flaw (as with many Escape Hunt games) was when the GM had to look/listen for us doing something to trigger the next step, rather than it being mechanical. Most of the time, this is fine, except when the GM isn't concentrating!
There was also an instruction sheet for a puzzle that literally made no sense to us, to which the GM said 'yeah, a lot of people say that'.
Good escape room with some really nice touches related to WWII, but we were slightly frustrated by a slightly illogical puzzle two-thirds of the way through and despite requesting assistance several times were left on our own for quite a while. The hosts outside the game were extremely friendly and professional, but unfortunately they weren't as available as we would have liked in the game itself.
That said, we had a great time and intend to go back to play the Alice room!
The Finest Hour was a really good room, we had a perfect time! I would not recommend the room for more than 4 people due to the size of the rooms. It was 6 of us attempting that room which resulted in 2/3 people just standing aside on some puzzles as the room couldn't take more. I believe this room is my favourite World War themed room so far.
This was amazing!! I love it.
We had Luke as our GM again. He's brilliant.
If I had one negative, it would be that we did reach points were 2 or 3 people would be working on a puzzle, and the others would have nothing to do. The theme and puzzles were great though. It was a tough room, with a climactic finish, and apparently only a 20% escape rate!
I definitely recommend.

Overall, this was an outstanding escape room. If you only do one in your life, this might be a contender. If you want to do a lot and are looking for somewhere to start… honestly maybe don’t do this one first. I have a feeling it would make any subsequent ones you do a little less engaging.
