Flawless. The space is absolutely tremendous and like being on the set of a movie. The puzzles are terrific - well thought out, logical and flow well. It's on the harder side, but I loved that, felt like we worked for our escape. Highly recommended.

Sadly a miss for us. Probs the one we were most hyped for but our host just didn't seem into it, it wasn't remotely scary (and we'd been really scared by Howitz) and the interventions by the butcher went on forever. There was also a lack of things to actually do. Just a lot of searching for stuff to put in the right place, assumedly as you're supposed to feel tense about the butcher coming back, but we just didn't.

This sort of game is right up my street. You're completely immersed from the first second, loads of little jump scares and innuendos. Fun puzzles and tasks and a huge beautiful space. My favourite at Escapologic.

The main concept of this game is brilliant - something we'd never soon. Great host, very story driven and lots to do. It's really hard for a two so I'd make sure you're v confident if taking it on as two.

It was just ok. Very easy. A lock broke and so our host had to spend a good few minutes in the room trying to unlock it (she couldn't) but luckily it didn't hinder the progress of the game. Ruined the immersion big time though. The whole game just felt a bit flat.

One of the worst I've ever played. Host had no idea what she was doing, had to enter the room several times to reset things she'd forgot to reset. The main centre piece of the room is a ticking down bomb and you cut a wire when you're done. She couldn't figure out how to fix it so said we should just walkie talkie her which wire we would cut. This was made harder when she later (after entering the room) forgot to take it back out with her. Nothing particularly original and extremely easy.
This is supposed to be 40 mins outside then 50 mins in a vault. Outside takes like 25 max and then you're thrown into a room with no briefing. The lights don't work and considering it's brand new it's really dusty and everything looks well-used. It was very easy.

Was surprised by this given it's just in the basement of a cafe, but there was some really good tech in it and it was really immersive. We absolutely smashed it but didn't feel like we'd wasted our time or money.
It's fun - the games here aren't out of this world, but this is the best so far. You can only play it if you set a record in another room. Some of the cluings were a bit wrong and the grammar on them is bad.

Absolutely baffled this has so many high ratings - I'd say it's the worst of my 85 games. Poor theming, illogical puzzles, we had to rely on clues far too much which suggests a lack of signposting, half of it is broken and shoddy. Nah.
