Genuinely had a blast playing this colourful, charming, whimsical and game. Families with younger kids will love this (I'm forty something and loved it).

Brilliant with kids. It was brightly lit and there was nothing scary. The multi-threaded nature of the puzzles kept us all busy, and there were different puzzles at different levels, e.g. our 6 year old could be getting on with finding pieces for one puzzle while our 9 year old was solving something a bit more complicated, and some for the adults too. It was relaxed enough that we had time to help the kids, where required.

A really good fun escape room - and a good representation online of a real life room. Good mix of puzzles and kept four of us amused through out.  Needed to switch into four separate laptops to allow us all to concentrate but worked really well when we did.

One of these rooms you wish you had played in real life. The telescape platform worked well for this, but some moments you just wish you had been there for. A bit of magic in those. 

The flow of puzzles were great. Most were easy so you felt like you were moving all the time. It was VERY lock-based and that is ok with us. 

The theme made it very light-hearted and at times funny. 
We did spot an error in one puzzle, we think, but it was easy to correct and the right puzzle solution was difficult to get wrong, since this was only a small part.
