The theme is a classic bank heist theme, there was some really good moments and funny parts of the room but as it's becoming a tradition with Breakout Liverpool, we had another issue with one of the puzzle that just opened by itself so we got very confused as we had a spare code that we didn't know where to use it on. It broke the immersion and the overall enjoyment of the escape room.

Habitual Heisting
Having broken out of our first two rooms in good time- both four start difficulty- our GO told us he would be more reserved when it came to giving out clues since this one is a three-star.
Story
You’re robbers pulling off your most daring heist ever, raiding the vault of an esteemed treasury.

Puzzles
The sort of puzzles I would expect to see in a bank-themed room, although some were generic. They were far more challenging with no help!

Mise-en-scene
It wasn’t very bank-like. Instead, it was a bit plain and office-y. Yes, there was a vault, but ‘legendary’ is an overstatement. Overall, I’d describe it as unambitious…the space this game is currently in could be used for a far more exciting and original storyline/setting.

Final Comments
Just give me a sec while I go put the stolen riches with my rubies/gems/diamonds I’ve taken from all the other escape room’s vaults. If you’re coming to Breakout Liverpool, put this near the bottom of your list of games to play.
