Absolutely brilliant, so much fun. Lots to do, really well themed with plenty of puzzles. The final puzzle is very satisfying, too. Staff here are always really engaging and switched on and love to talk through the whole room play which we really enjoy.

We had a blast doing this room, everything flowed very logically and we enjoyed that there was an optional "extreme" mode for enthusiasts. Set looked fantastic. Owners clearly enthusiasts and had a great chat about ERs in general when we were there - we didn't play their other rooms (which I believe are easier) but would highly recommend checking this one out if you are in the area.

Reviews by escape room review sites

Cabins in escape rooms have a tendency to turn grizzly - the ominous cabin in the woods trope. This one is an exception. It turns out to be a fairly normal miner’s cabin (normal other than being filled with puzzles, I guess); unfortunately, just at the moment you sneak inside, a landslide leaves you trapped with no way out.
Far from creepy, there’s a homely and quite welcoming feel to the space. It was even pretty well lit, though the torches provided were a welcome help for the dimmer corners....
This is one of those rooms that you enter and think you know what you’re getting but then it finds ways to surprise you and fill you with excitement. On the surface it looks like a simple room but behind the scenes there's a lot of tech working hard to keep you on your toes
