Loved this room - brilliant puzzles, original theming, lots of brain power needed. Can't wait for their new room.

beautiful

No effort is spared at Kanyu Escape - this room is just beautiful! Really fun puzzles that were intuitive but challenging. A good combination of finding and solving with a really good 'wow' moment as well. Highly recommended!

This room was excellent! The dรฉcor and atmosphere really makes it compete with some international top rated games. Unfortunately it is a bit short as we escaped in 30 minutes in a team of 2! But really recommend it!

A unique location for an escape room venue lends itself to a very effective Victorian explorer theme. A beautifully decorated room conceals a lot of modern technology which all works well in service of the unfolding story. One of the narratively strongest games Iโ€™ve played, but not at the expense of providing fun puzzles with plenty of variety.

A challenge for two but I think it would work well with a bigger group.

Although we played the Kanyu games out of order, Follow In My Footsteps is their first game and the best one to start with, both for narrative reasons and because it's a little easier than the one that comes after it. The game's premise is that you are distant relations of the recently deceased Sir Henry Cunningham, famed explorer, gathered at his mansion in answer to his posthumous request and tasked with delving into some of the secrets of his life.
This is explained in the booking confirmati...
The highlight of a 20-game New Year's Eve trip, Lightning in a Bottle is filled with good harder-than-average puzzles, fun theatre and a pretty set.
 It is clearly a labour of love and the room itself did not disappoint.  Set up as a gentlemanโ€™s study, it has plenty of eye-candy, and the mostly vintage-feel puzzles fit perfectly

Despite first appearances, this room wasnโ€™t a series of trying keys in keyholes. In fact, the variety of puzzles and input methods was impressive to say the least. Combined with the top-notch set design, I can definitely see why itโ€™s rated top in Leeds!
