Met up with a good friend to do this room, our first one together. Either we make a great team or the room was quite easy as we got a decent time! Room is quite basic with a few surprises. Enough to get my friend hooked. Extra bonus points to this venue as I left my car keys by accident and they drove across town to bring them to me!! Yay

Reviews by escape room review sites

Many Sherlock-themed escape games need an excuse for why the great man himself isn't present - perhaps he's been kidnapped, or has died, or is simply too busy with more important cases. Escape's version takes a novel approach: here you are in fact the bad guys, sent by Moriarty to infiltrate Sherlock's apartment and steal a particular one of his possessions.
Although the Escape venues tend not to invest too heavily in the room decorations, 221B Baker Street looks more impressive than their norm...
Theming and Set: Lovely, until the weird timey-wimey wobble at the end. Searching: Not really enough to keep the teens occupied while solving one riddle at a time.
