For a room that's closing, we really liked it. Lot's of different puzzles, good sign posting. Just a solid escape room.  I would recommend visiting before it closes.

Fun lab themed room with good flow and nice hosting. Few too many combination number locks for my liking but otherwise had a good time!

Youโ€™ve been tasked with finding a cure to a virus (quite timely as I write) and you have to investigate a lab to find.  This is a more physical room with a wide range of dexterity and some mental puzzles mixed in.

Loved it - full of fun puzzles, brilliant clue system, very linear and good use of tech. Shame it's going soon.

Brilliant set design! These guys really know how to make you feel immersed. Clever puzzles. The downside being that there was not a huge range of puzzles, most used combination number locks. Heard they are removing this room which may have been why some elements were missing.

Itโ€™s a premise both classic and rather topical: with a deadly disease spreading across the world, you must break into a laboratory to find the antidote. (There may well have been a good explanation for why the lab isnโ€™t just releasing the antidote without any theft being necessary, but if that was covered in the briefing then I missed itโ€ฆ)

Lab is not Compendiumโ€™s oldest game, but visually looks like it might be, in that itโ€™s the plainest of the four, probably because the theme lends itself to l...

A nice and bright room that felt very different to the other offerings at Compendium. This is a large space that could handle bigger teams, and has some really satisfying puzzles. Good fun.

When we entered the lab we found ourselves in a relatively large, clean room with plenty of sciencey artifacts lying around. The premise is simple; locate and recover the antidote for the deadly pandemic that is ravaging the planet (I swear this was launched long before Covid). We immediately split up and started searching for clues, locating a number of interesting items and numbers dotted about. The decor in the room was great โ€“ it played into the theme and there quite multiple times when something which initially appeared to be a prop turned into a key puzzle!

Compendium have done it again โ€“ another great room with excellently flowing puzzles thatโ€™s really fun to play.
