Professor BlackSheep is back again to destroy mankind as we know it by turning us all into sheep! And this time he is not alone - he’s got an evil side-kick and together they have built a dangerous device: the SheepMutator.
Mr Q believes that the new technology used by the Professor poses a serious threat: by mutating the human genome, the SheepMutator can turn anyone who is in the range on its evil rays into a placid sheep! To make matters worse, the Professor has managed to set up several such devices in key locations around the planet - one of them having been set up right here, in London.
Agents, you will have 60 Minutes to locate and find a way to deactivate these devices before they go online and it’s too late for mankind!

Wow really good room. Bit of a false start as some things aren't very clear to begin with but once we were past that, the rest of the room although small had a lot packed into it, and some extremely high tech stuff, which although fancy wasn't always obvious enough. Some very nice puzzles though, things I'd not seen before.

A high tech game with some unique puzzles and a cool theme. Flow of the game was a bit off, and some of the puzzles require more signposting and have some leaps of logic. Generally a fun game though

Reviews by escape room review sites

Cluequest's previous two rooms were fun and challenging, and with this one they've pushed the bar higher. One puzzle in particular is unusually high-tech - which is risky for an escape room, but it worked exactly as intended and appeared to be rock solid.

It's a room brimming with puzzles, where there's masses to do but which all comes together for the finish. It's not an easy room and I'd recommend doing it after the other Cluequest rooms, but it's one worth waiting for.

A rare escape room that combines great customer service, both high tech and mechanical puzzles and generally an all round fun experience. clueQuest have upped their game again - definitely their best yet.
Despite being an older game, Revenge of the Sheep is still in very good condition and not showing its age at all. Puzzles were solid, the tech was impressive, and set design was the high standard we’ve come to expect.
We have just 60 minutes to stop an evil professor before he turns mankind into placid sheep!

The aim in Revenge is to locate and zap evil Professor BlackSheep’s secret bases around the globe to prevent the world’s population being mutated into sheep

It’s a weird time to be reviewing Revenge of the Sheep. There’s some super-cool fancy new tech in the room – it’s not a spoiler, because it’s explained in the briefing. Revenge of the Sheep uses augmented reality – you point a tablet camera at something and see it on the screen, overlaid with things that aren’t actually there. It’s pretty cool the first time you see it. But as I write this, the entire country is in the grip of PokemonGO which uses the exact same technology to show Pokemon in real world places. Two weeks earlier Revenge of the Sheep was cutting edge. Now, not so much.
At the end of February, we traveled to London, England. It was part of my birthday gift from Alex, which included a show by Bianca Del Rio and a trip with our closest friends to the Capitol of England. Naturally, we also played a bunch of Escape Rooms. We had one day to check out rooms […]
We were called upon to help super-mouse Mr Q thwart vile Professor Blacksheep's plan to turn all humans into sheep! Which would obviously be a bad thing, and not wonderfully cute and fluffy. How did we fare?
A challenging room that’s not for newbies, builds on the previous two rooms in terms of story and style. The goal is in the style of a specific task rather than simply escaping. Style and build quality top notch. The inaugural winner of the London Escapists “Generally Awesome” award.
