My first truly non-linear game, very well executed.
Mr. Chuckles's Fun House was a winning start of our daytrip to Macclesfield and, after lunch, we headed back to Escape Quest to save the world by destroying the 13th element. The room was very big and the challenge is about working out which elements can be solved directly or which ones need more clues. Each element was a puzzle, therefore the room could be divided in three steps: find the entrance to the lab, find the 12 elements and finally destroy the 13th element by reaching Dr. Argon's office. I was running around like a headless chicken but the rest of my team was on point! The end of the game is absolutely fantastic and automatically brings in the fear/stress element when you are facing the last remaining puzzle and there is only few seconds on the clock. Worth a visit! Looking forward to come and try two more rooms

The second game we played at Escape Quest was 13th Element, billed as their hardest game. The plot is a fairly standard one about a mad scientist and a chemical macguffin that must be destroyed before it is used.
My first impression of the room was that it also looked fairly standard - surprisingly plain, particularly given the gloriously over the top room that we'd just come from. Fortunately that impression is misleading. I'll avoid details for spoiler reasons, but 13th Element is remarkably ...
Having played Locked In Edinburgh's "The Secret Lab" just a week before, it was interesting to see how two different venues can tackle the exact same premise, and come up with very different - and yet valid - results. While its Scottish counterpart was a sprawling web of parallel puzzles, meant for players to split in smaller teams, this lab is mostly sequential, and players should be able to follow what's happening (though they might not be able to actively participate in every puzzle, depending on player count).
