A fun game with multiple objectives! Great dungeon theming (aside from a slightly incongruous filing cabinet) and a great variety of puzzles with clear signposting and nice physical locks. A few confusing moments - there were a few number locks with coloured wheels which seemed to indicate the answers would match up to colours but didn’t; one padlock was VERY stiff and the key wouldn’t open it until the fifth try, some jiggling and wasted minutes trying other locks - which I wouldn’t have tried until the host told me that key was for that lock so it wouldn’t fit any others; and two codes were very similar so that I accidentally opened the wrong lock with another code and we then got confused as to what the other code actually was! Feel like it would benefit the game to change the code as we were told it’s happened to a lot of other teams! There was also a pre-labelled ‘do not touch’ lock which we were told didn’t work, so it didn’t seem like it had recently happened, so it would have been nice if that was fixed. But good fun overall and a good room for beginners!

A great little game - Lots to do! A team of 3 might be the right size though to experience everything...

immersive

Good setting as I'm used to from Clue HQ. The puzzles are to some extent on the simple side, or at least they're unlikely to engage the lateral thinking of an experienced team, but there are a lot of them to work through and I think it would be a good room for beginners.

poor hosting

A decent set of puzzles are not forgiven by multiple 4-digital padlocks. Also, we were blamed for a key falling off something, stopping the ending from being possible, because no key.
We also felt rushed out of the premises at the end.

clever

This room has a brilliant range of puzzles that flow well. Another fantastic room from Clue HQ Warrington! 

There were a few confusing moments and very packlock heavy but overall a great room!

A review of four games we played in mid-2017 at Escapism and Breakout in Chester and Clue HQ Warrington. Dungeon of Doom and Teleporter were both solid games while Amphitheatre and Disturbed paled in comparison.
