The Lost Passenger is an enjoyable experience for the atmosphere of the game alone. Sadly the puzzles let it down, with the latter half of the game feeling a little bit like you're following a very complex instruction manual. It's a little anti-climactic. It's well worth doing if you want to soak in the immersion of the abandoned tube station, however if you're looking for a good challenge/interesting puzzles, perhaps look elsewhere.
Mission Breakout is located, albeit behind a very modest and easy-to-miss front door, in a genuine Leslie Green Tube station building. This is South Kentish Town, signature glazed tiles and all, a station where no-one has got on or off a train since 1924. Except, perhaps, for one Lost Passenger ...
The game is based on the folklore account of a man who absent-mindedly disembarked at the forever-closed station, perhaps never to be seen or heard from again. This game is great fun; both the two adults and the two teens in our family group really enjoyed playing. The Lost Passenger requires more practical aspects of intelligence. Someone who enjoys tinkering with machines to see how they work, or a DIY enthusiast, would be valuable to your team. Once or twice, a little Tube or railway knowledge could be helpful too.
Be prepared to find yourselves in some dark and occasionally confined spaces. Mostly there was plenty to occupy everyone, but at one point early on the four of us were queued up behind a one-person puzzle. It is somewhat dusty and dirty underground, so definitely don't go in your best clothes.
We received sufficient hints to allow us to get back on track after a slow start, and somewhat surprised ourselves by completing the game with a minute to spare. The staff were friendly and helpful. I'd definitely recommend this game.
amazing location, very realist
Reviews by escape room review sites
Mission Breakout’s website proclaims their games to be the most immersive in London. While the set and integrated puzzles certainly lend weight to that claim, we don't feel like we can agree
This was definitely one of the most unique escape room locations we’ve ever been to. We felt immersed before the game even started. If you love historical sites with a bit of eeriness, you will love this escape room. This room was not puzzle-heavy nor were the puzzles difficult. Adventure seekers will enjoy finding the “right buttons” in this room. As some areas did feel quite crammed and linear, our recommended size for this room is 3 people.
The Lost Passenger was a really fun room. It won’t challenge enthusiasts, but that’s okay – I think the real reason to book and play this is to experience an exciting an adventure in such an impressive physical location. We loved that it was based on a true story, but what we loved the most was the setting, the theme, the creaky equipment, and the general ghostly vibes as we scrambled around the depths of an abandoned station looking for puzzles to solve.
