We attempted this room as a pair, and we're really impressed by the level of thought that had gone into the room design and decor. We loved the theme and the tactile and clever puzzles.

It would definitely work well for a competitive larger group, but the objective (collecting as much cash as possible) meant it didn't preclude us from having a great time as we tackled the puzzles. 

The GM was fantastic - clearly passionate about personalising the game to give us the best possible time based on our experience, group size and so on.

The best room we've done in Cornwall so far!

Reviews by escape room review sites

Despite the odd setting in Gnome World, we were pleasantly surprised by Tumbleweed. It had good set dressing, solid puzzles, and nice and open gameplay, the fact that it was 90 minutes was also a bonus. If you’re in Cornwall, this one is worth a detour.
