One of the best games I've ever played. So much to do, so well themed...absolutely brilliant room that I could recommend to everyone who has ever played an escape game.

One of the most unique games out there - absolutely full to the brim with puzzles. Unreal room.

You have boarded a submarine with lots of stolen treasure, how much can you claim in an hour?  Whilst technically an escape room (you have to escape at the end!) this room features an awful lot of puzzles packed into a large space, solve a puzzle, get treasure!  There are so many puzzles, ranging from the logical, to the physical to the high tech.  An awful lot of fun!

Wow wow wow! Not your normal escape room - you have to solve as many puzzles to get as much swag as you can and get out in time. It was so much fun! There are TONS of puzzles and games packed into this room of all types and difficulty levels, there's something for everyone.

The immersion and set was really outstanding, as was the use of technology. Despite the diversity in the puzzles, they all managed to keep to the theme and didn't break the immersion of being on a submarine. Our host/owner Alex was an absolute diamond, such a lovely bloke and has clearly put a lot of love into Compendium. 

We had an excellent time as a pair but this room is huge and almost completely non-linear, so I think it would be great for big groups too. I would recommend to anyone (especially fans of the crystal maze - no spoilers though!) πŸ˜‰

I don't think there are enough superlatives to explain the sheer enjoyment and challenge experienced with this room! The themeing and room design are impressive, with the puzzles sticking to this theme and ranging from logical, observational, skill, some teamwork and communication. This is not your normal escape room in terms of solving clues to gain an escape... The game is to solve puzzles to gain tokens and a chance to win keys to get as much of the loot as you can before finally escaping the submarine. The room is surprisingly huge and plenty to do without being linear to keep the whole party busy. And at Β£39 for a team of 2,unbelievable value which Alex was passionate about keeping low to ensure it was accessible for many to enjoy. Alex was also an outstanding host and a pleasure to chat to. This room and company are an absolute must for everyone to visit!

Never have I ever seen this many puzzles crammed into a room. UI-55 isn’t your traditional escape room, but if you’re in the mood for puzzles, puzzles, and more puzzles, mixed with an insane amount of fun, you can’t go wrong with this game.
