Not a particularly difficult room, but very enjoyable none the less. Great theme and as immersive as it gets. Highly recommended for first timers.

I was so excited with this room but I don't know what happened but we had the worse gamemaster we had ever experience! They were giving us clue which either we have already done or something that we had but making zero sense of information. We wasted so much time on one puzzle because of the GM. But I must say this theming was great and creepy (not scary) some puzzle was good but some were incredibly frustrating.

Loved this room from start to finish. Scary enough but not so scary that it put you off working your way through the room. Really good start, would very much recommend.

If I'm ever kidnapped by a murderous psycho, at least I'll have had no shortage of practice at extricating myself from creepy dungeons! Horror games often start with the players a little more restrained than in other styles of game, and this one has one of the more imaginative such opening sequences.
The room's grizzly decor pulls no punches, and players will need to have a strong stomach at times. The Dollhouse is also probably the most search-heavy of the six rooms at The Panic Room, which (p...
A room that managed to blend concepts together. Horror and humour. The beautiful and the macabre. Some interesting puzzles and decent set design added up to a game that I found surprisingly enjoyable.
Although this room is creepy, and it certainly is creepy, I wouldn’t really call it a scary room and it is definitely fun
We came to The Dollhouse with a sense of trepidation. Firstly, because it looked to be the first proper horror game we had played, but more because… well we’re not that great at escape rooms. Obviously we’re pretty good, mainly because at this point we’ve done loads. But I see other bloggers knocking out leaderboard placings, 40-minute finishes and all-time records left, right and centre. Whereas we just tend to do “pretty well”.
This is probably R’s favourite Room to date. She loves a horror themed room and this certainly did not disappoint. The way you start the game is great and not to give too much away but it certainly adds to the overall experience.
