A virus has been steadily infecting the population of the United Kingdom, turning them into Zombies. You have not been infected and are on the run from the walking dead. You come across an abandoned shop thinking it would be the perfect place to stock up on water and food only to find out youโ€™re trapped inside when a group of infected souls start banging on the door. You barricade the door and need to look for an alternate escape before the infected horde breaks down the door in 60 minutes!

Really enjoyed outbreak. Some cleverly used puzzles and there was just enough to do.

Some good theming, quite immersive with puzzles that made sense in the environment. Good classic escape room.

I have to be honest, this was quite disappointing. When you hear โ€˜zombie themeโ€™, there could be endless possibilities - instead, what we got was a room that mainly takes place in a corner shop, with rather uninspired puzzles. A shame when the concept sounded cool, it would be alright if youโ€™ve never done an escape room before but I wouldnโ€™t personally recommend this.

Shop Til You Drop (Dead)
My final of four rooms in the same day. I couldn't have handled any more- my brain was mush!
Story
Searching an abandoned shop for supplies during a zombie apocalypse, the undead have been alerted to your presence. Break out before they break in!

Puzzles
A wide variety; some in particular tied in perfectly to the environment, and this was maintained throughout our puzzling journey. We needed hints for one or two of them.

Mise-en-scene
Brilliant! It had everything your nearest corner shop has, as well as all the added touches to make it look apocalyptically-ransacked. The lack of lighting heightened the sense of danger, as did the nearby zombie moans. Every major and minor details was covered.

Final Comments
We got out of this one with fourteen minutes to spare. It was an enjoyable room with the odd tense moment that would probably be enjoyed more in a group of four.
