The pre-event experience and things like merchandise have not improved since the version we did in Angel, but the maze itself and the Mazemaster we had made up for it. They've done really well dressing each zone and the games were fun if a little too difficult at times. We enjoyed our time in the maze itself but again with the tatty tokens in the maze! Could do with a slightly stronger material so they don't tear into little pieces :) all in all a fun experience but glad we managed to get a really good offer on ticket price.

Nice idea and we got into the puzzles eventually but  the first one was solved before we knew what was happening and then we kept being skipped and missing the video calls between each room, therefore any storyline was totally lost on us. Was good to encourage team communication but wasn't as good as those games where you can all click on things together to solve the puzzles. 5 puzzles in total, one or two were very clever but had slow mechanisms that made them frustrating to use. Might work better if one person streams and the rest contribute.

I just cannot pick enough of the positive tags above to describe this room. From the beautiful location, the warm and passionate owners/GM, the fab theme, incredible decoration and attention to detail, the props and use of tech in the room, the puzzles themselves, and the difficulty level which kept even 2 experienced players guessing. Located on a beautiful farm park with animals, kids activities and more, this room is still in its infancy but blew us away, especially as the design and build is from relative newcomers. Definitely one to include on your trip if you're in Cambridgeshire, make sure to save time to visit the farm and cafe too though! They are opening their second room in September and we can't wait to go back and play again.

Really good fun from the time you arrive at the unusual location, a place to grab a drink beforehand on site and then you're inducted to the game and off you go. 3 areas of puzzles of nice variety and difficulty, handy hint system  and video and audio interjections from the cast. Nice that you get your own route and pace and are not being herded through with another team hot on your tail. Nice merch to buy at the end. As a Sherlock fan I loved it but you don't need to have watched it to enjoy it.

A interesting murder mystery/cold case kit with mainly paperwork and deduction. Good quality printing and a solid amount of work to do to uncover the murderer. No online element, no real "puzzles" just elimination with logical steps.

NOTE: We played the original black and red version of this game with metal tins, not the Mattel version. 

Absolutely loved the time we spent playing this game. A clever mix of puzzles, activities and a lovely payoff. Everything you need contained in the box and multiple uses of some items made for a very enjoyable experience.

Absolutely superb space, brilliant theming, clever split start and a superbly dramatic ending. GM was brilliant, funny and engaging, just such fun and we only needed one hint half way. Didn't want to leave this world! Hounds is amazing all over!

A really detailed briefing from our "kidnapper" and a very clever use of space. Brilliant puzzles all well in keeping, great styling and overall an amazing venue!

My first little puzzle box like this after watching Chris Ramsay and Mr Puzzle solve so many of them online! Lovely introduction. Not many "steps" but logical and fun to solve.
