illogical

We were really looking forward to this theme.. and was sorely disappointed. 

They give you a lantern.. and recommend you use your phones as the room is completely pitch black, until you start progressing.  

Typical EL asking you to use the same 3 numbers in several ways. Very lazy design.  A standard you'll come to notice as you play more rooms with them. 

Towards the end of your game, you'll be forced to put your hand in a bucket.. which is full of ancient gel balls which have ruptured leaving your hands decimated in a sticky mess, with no way to clean it.

It was fun enough - pretty easy as the escape live Liverpool games tend to be. Our host was lovely. 

Reviews by escape room review sites

A lot of this game is reading based, in fact… I would say almost all of it is, this is not a bad thing, I don’t mind story and text in a game, as long as it is done solidly. Unfortunately, Jack The Ripper fell down with some incredibly obvious spelling mistakes on several of the sheets of paper, and in the puzzles themselves. This presented itself to be incredibly misleading and almost like red herrings.
