Just a little off the top! this could be more than you bargained for, you heard that Mr Todds was the place to go for that close shave, but maybe a little too close, a strange smell in the air raises suspicion, you decide to leave but the door is locked, can you get out before he returns?

I you're after the closest shave money can buy, Mr Todd is 2nd to none! As is he's escape room! 

Recording our 20th room as a family of 4 (2adults 2children) we booked Mythologics newest offering to celebrate the occasion and so glad we did. 

From the moment the door closes you are immersed into old time London with plenty to do and perfectly flowing puzzles to keep everyone busy. 

If you're in the area and love an immersive, challenging room setup then do not delay, book today!

story-driven

A faithful rendition of the Sweeny Todd story, the room production is good and the theming is atmospheric and well built. The room is a little dark, but lanterns are provided which help immensely. The narrative progresses well and the puzzles fit nicely into the story.

The room has literally just opened when we played so we had a couple of gameplay niggles, mostly in the latter stages, but I've allowed for these in the scoring.

quite difficult
There's a lot to do here, probably why the duration was changed during playtesting to 90 minutes, there's a lot of puzzles with some clever changes of scenery.  

Reviews by escape room review sites

When all was said and done, we scraped by in a really close time of 87 mins 23 secs – a close shave when the barber was due to return! All the games we’ve played at Mythologic have been pretty impressive but this one takes it to another level. Awesome scenery, great action, a brilliant mix of puzzles (and a massive volume of them too!), customer service continuing to be outstanding, and overall just a fabulous well-rounded experience. As a side note, this is my girlfriends first ever escape room (yeah, I know right?!), and its already given her the bug! So although I’d air this game towards slightly more experienced players given the volume of puzzles, its evident that a newcomer will enjoy it just the same (she was actually really good in the room too – insert jealous face emoji here!).
