I was a bit disappointed by Area 51 which was way less atmospheric that the others with low decorations and a very high difficulty. But the room has been changed to Legacy which is worth the visit!

Not as good as the other room, and one of the first I've played, but seem to remember it being pretty decent still.

Reviews by escape room review sites

Playing on a separate occasion, I'd agree with those comments, although I'd add in a note of appreciation for the game having more than one room, good puzzle variety, skilful and entertaining hosts, and a refreshing lack of frustration points - generally whenever you've solved a puzzle, it's clear that you've done so.
Compared to the Casino room I did at the same venue immediately beforehand, the game structure is more linear and the content somewhat easier. Experienced teams will find it easy ...
A decently themed game which was generally enjoyable but was badly let down by a flawed puzzle and a broken lock.
Escape London invite you to travel back in time to a top-secret, 1950s laboratory investigating other-worldly happenings in Roswell. Those little grey folk look friendly...
Highly linear, lots of different and new kinds of puzzles to enjoy in a sci-fi themed adventure. Accessible for beginners.
