Very interesting looking room but some puzzles were not put back together properly so we had access to a box when it should have been locked. Some parts didn't make sense either. Host was very in character but kept giving hints when they weren't needed or asked for and we felt rushed to finish even though we had plenty of time and didn't even access some puzzles. Not sure if the host knows how some of the puzzles work to be honest.
Played with a group of 6, including two newbies. This room works well with a larger group as there’s plenty to do in parallel, and a wide variety of puzzle types so there’s something for everyone. The themeing is nice - although I’ve seen games with better theme/puzzle integration, the set here was attractive,
One gripe: while our GM was good (and in-character) throughout, he disappeared at the last moment, leaving us stranded for an anticlimactic couple of minutes until a completely different GM showed up to take us back to reception.
Escape Hunt Liverpool is such a great addition to Liverpool ER scene. While I have the tendency to avoid chains when booking escape rooms, I will highly recommend Escape Hunt Liverpool to anyone looking for an escape. There is real attention to detail and immersion that other Escape Hunt in the country didn't deliver. Escape the Wild West is no stranger to this, the atmosphere, the décors, the puzzles, the flow and logic were spot on. You do feel like you're in in to find the gold and escape in board of the District 1 train. Our game master, Sarah, was a true ER enthusiast (so enthusiastic that she forgot the hot drinks we ordered :)), she stayed in character throughout the whole game with a perfect American accent, we did feel like we were after Bill French's gold. I would highly recommend the room but would not suggest it for less than 3 people as we escaped with 6 seconds left on the clock after receiving 2 clues. The whole flow made sense but a couple of puzzles felt as if we didn't have all the instructions necessary to solve, as if they made sense to the designer when it was first created but the logic would not easily come to mind to most players. Another one was solved by us by skipping a step which didn't give the same feeling of completion as it was designed to. And finally one puzzle had a typo that made me wonder if it was a clue... We did feel the pressure on the last puzzle, so much so that we did sit down to recover from it! Another brilliant room. Thank you for bringing Escape Hunt to Liverpool.
Some broken tech, tired puzzles and it was soooo HOT!
Where to begin…. I was so disappointed with this room/experience. To be fair the host was trying to manage a number of rooms all at once due to staff shortages and this did show.
The game started late.
The noise from outside the room from the reception/bar area was a bit off putting.
A number of the puzzles were not in keeping with the theme and required psychic ability to work out how to make a couple of ‘now completed’ puzzles work.
Some puzzles are still in the room even though they are no longer part of the game and don’t work.
The door into the second room did not open with the key unless you turned the key to a particular point of the lock.
Two padlocks had been accidentally swapped when the game had been reset and consequently as the padlock code clue was heavily reliant on the item it was attached to plenty of time was wasted trying to open them.
The room is very tired with a number of broken parts.
I wouldn’t recommend. Even though we successfully escaped, we came out feeling unfulfilled and deflated.
Everything was broken, poor hosting. Really disappointing.
