Really enjoyed the amazing quality of props and set design in this game, and the way in which it unfolded. There were a couple of puzzles that we solved but didn't quite realise we'd unlocked something else - but the gamesmaster helped direct us to the relevant sections. Obviously a well-experienced and passionate owner too - will be back to check out the other games

Had a great experience with this game, owner is GM and passionate about ERs in general, so we had a nice chat before and after. Excellently themed in terms of props and how puzzles fit into the game with a lot of attention to detail. We had a fun time working through the space, and although not the hardest room we have done, perhaps this reflects the logical way the puzzles have been set up and we certainly enjoyed ourselves. Would recommend if in the area and would visit for other games if back.
