We had Cameron hosting our game here l, he was fantastic and really made the game special. The room is really well themed and immersive, felt like a proper carnival. There was plenty to do here.

The set in this room is simply incredible! You genuinely feel as if you're at a creepy carnival. Wholeheartedly recommend as the puzzles both physical and traditional are so much fun. We didn't make it out in time but still a room for the books.

Spooky Carnival!!!

Story - there was 2 brother named percevil (bad guy) and Arnie (good guy) who was controlling a carnival. Since the good guy passed away percevil has been acting strange and carnival more strange you must release arnie spirit or you will stuck in the carnival forever!

Theming - best theming I had ever seen I genuinely felt like I was in a carnival which was incredible. There was alot of animatronic throughout the room which was creepy and amazing. As soon as I enter the room my mouth was wide open and said WOW!

Puzzle - the puzzle throughout our experience has been incredible I never had so much fun before since old father time! There was 2 puzzle that was either wasnt working or too difficult (last puzzle 🀫) there was a few padlock and alot of technology (fun edition)

Clue system - via speakers

Positive - theming was brilliant, puzzle was incredible and fun, love the story, love the music, animatronic was insane, love the smell in the room and the GM was superb

Negative - there was only 2 puzzle that was extremely stressful but we was tired as we done 5 rooms in 1 days!

Overall experience - this is my 2nd favourite room of all time everything about this room was incredible. This room is a must do! Bring at least a team of 5 as there Is alot to do and the room is big! Also there is flashing and smoke effect.

Reviews by escape room review sites

A fun room that’s a full-on assault on the senses! We had a great time in Carnevil and particularly enjoyed the more physical aspects of the room. Possibly one of our favourite β€˜Panic Room’ rooms
An entire carnival greets you as you enter the room and as you would expect plenty of different side shows to test your skills with! This was a fun room! So much to do and it didn’t feel like we were tripping over each others feet until we had to bring it all together at the end.
