illogical

I liked the set design and atmosphere and the starting setup is fairly novel. However, we had to have quite a few hints in this room because for a lot of the puzzles it's not obvious why you would do the things you're supposed to do. I've played a lot of escape rooms and when you get a hint it's normally an "oh yeah" moment, but this was more of a "why would I have even tried that?". Even afterwards the gamemaster didn't seem to be able to explain to us why we should've realised what we were supposed to do for the final puzzle. It's a shame because it's obvious that a lot of effort has gone into building the room, but it's let down by the nonsensical puzzles.

We loved this room so much!

It's your standard prison break story but the way it is built (two jail cells, and the setting is so good it was in the film Cruella!) and the way the puzzles are done are really clever. Your team is split into two separate cells and you have to work together to solve puzzles, even though you can't see each other for a large chunk of the game. Everything flowed well and was fun AND logical.

It really made us think, sometimes stretch, even a little bit of climbing. The GM was mega enthusiastic and the owner was really chatty too, telling us about the next room that is due to be finished August 21 (or possibly September).

It's in an unassuming basement in the centre of Bracknell, so it's easy to get to.

I don't want to give too much away. 

We're looking forward to going to back to play Secret of the Vault and the new Pharoah's Mystery when it opens. 

Reviews by escape room review sites

The experience really puts you in the centre of the action, with the group split apart into two separate cells right from the start. This works perfectly with the storyline of having to break out before the guards return. It further adds to the story learning about the other inmates and utilising them to escape. The themeing in the escape room is of a decent quality, and the fact it’s located on the ground floor / basement adds to the authentic feel.
