I really enjoyed this game. We really over thought a very simple puzzle (the floor game), we lost a lot of time and didn't get out. Apart from this puzzle I think the room was challenging and had some really good puzzles, without being too hard. I'm not a fan of using walkie talkies for clues, but I actually didn't mind it in this game. I loved the jump scares! They were really subtle which is so much better/creepier than someone just screaming at you in the dark (which I've experienced with other live actor escape rooms)

Some parts of this were quite tricky to make the connections but it was enjoyable. I played on a warm sunny day, so it was enjoyable. I imagine it would be less so in bad weather. We also kept bumping into other teams which is a little annoying as we didn't want to overhear answers. I liked the idea of it though and visited places I wouldn't normally have known about. It's a lot of walking though. May not be good for those with mobility problems.

Uncommon themed rooms which I liked. Not keen on the location. Okay hosting, but they are clearly running multiple games at once which I'm not a fan of. There are a lot of magnetic/electronic puzzles which I do like. Some new puzzles I haven't seen before. We hit a wall though and wasted a lot of time at one point. Not my favourite room but it was different!

Enjoyable game. First time players would probably enjoy it. As someone who has played more rooms than the average player, it didn't really stand out to me in any way, but it was by no means a bad game.

Lovely host. Well designed room. We had loads of fun! There is a lot going on though. It's more about collecting loot than escaping so it isn't linear. Good for big groups.

It was a fun game. The host was friendly and attentive. Good mixture of magnetic and traditional puzzles. Probably not good for large groups or people with mobility issues due to the size and layout of the room.

Odd story but enjoyable. It was free so I can't complain. Nice intro game for people who have never played a room

Some good puzzles but quite easy. I found it didn't respond sometimes when I clicked. I wish it had a timer, as I forgot to set one.

Okay game. Poor hosting.

I played a few years ago. I really enjoyed the twist and the choice element of the game. The host was really nice and the puzzles were good.

I played this a few years ago. I love horror, but I don't really get scared by anything in escape rooms. I found it very easy. We got out very quickly.

Played a few years ago and got out very quickly. Lot's of people recommended Tommy and Edith so I was excited to play but found them both disappointing.

My first escape room (2017). The host clearly wasn't watching the game. You had to press a switch and the game operator would come into the room and ask what you were up to. They also didn't explain the locks. It being our first room, we didn't know how to use a directional lock and wasted a lot of time on this.

Really fun game. I don't really get scared in escape rooms but felt the host did a really good job. He really freaked my jumpier friend out! Less puzzles but very well done for a horror room with an actor.

I've played a fair amount of physical escape rooms (about 60 at the moment). I also enjoy puzzle books, board games and video games. This game isn't terribly hard. It's a good introduction game to a series - you don't want the first game to be too hard - but it was challenging enough. I had no clues but did get a time penalty for typing an answer incorrectly. I enjoyed the structure of the game and thought it was well thought out. No tech issues etc. I found it immersive and was left wanting to play the next installment.
