Its 1941, and the skies above Southampton are full of German war planes. Documents obtained by the Secret Intelligence Services have been left for collection at a safe drop in a local church. However, a German bomb then crashed through the roof but failed to explode. You have 60 minutes to get in and retrieve the documents without detonating the bomb, though it turns out that the bomb has a bit of a fault…..

Loved this room, very immersive, amazing set and the rules for the first section (you'll see what I mean when you get there) added an extra level of challenge. Great design, really beautiful, with clever, logical puzzles that were fun to solve.

Fantastic room, the best we've done at the Exciting Escapes venues. The theme is outstanding - perhaps not unique in choice (we've done so many WWII rooms they're starting to blur into one!) but the implementation is spot on, from the moment you enter the door.
The way the puzzles fit into the overall story and objective is brilliant, but I was particularly impressed by the attention to detail in the props and set design. Even down to the quality of the furniture, it all felt so authentic and immersive. Several of the puzzles were unique, unlike any others that we've seen before.
The GM Poppy was also fantastic, and clearly enthusiastic about facilitating the room experience for us.
Loved the room, and would recommend it to anyone who similarly appreciates a well executed theme.
Exciting Escapes are a company that everyone should be putting into their plans. With venues in Southampton, Portsmouth, Croydon and Basingstoke there are plenty to try. Having now tried one, we know we need to go back and try the rest. They are a must visit if you are ever in the area.
