A great room to play as you can get a full hour in there collecting DNA samples by solving puzzles or by just being very observant. The theming is good and there's a nice mix of puzzles, all of which are logical. Telescape isn't over used so you're not too distracted from the Avatar and her lovely nails.
I really enjoyed this one.

The Horrors of Crowley Manor is now a trilogy (or as we like to call it ... the #JusticeForLiam venue) and let me tell you was it worth the wait.

The story continues and both Ronnie and Liam return for more spooky shenanigans. As with the other remote games from Emergency Exit they excel with their hosting and the banter was just wonderful throughout. 

Add to this great sound and camera work and top it off with a seamless merging of realities and you've got a worthy successor of both Exorcist and the Beast.  The puzzles are well-themed to the narrative and are engaging and inventive.

If you've played the first two remote rooms then you'll appreciate the nods to the previous games. But don't worry if you haven't played the previous ones, as the narrative and gameplay of this room works as a standalone.

This is a MUST play avatar room. I loved this game so much that I'm going to come back in a few weeks' time (with a different team) to enjoy it again.

Wonderfully themed room where you feel like you're in a wood cabin/lodge and you need to whip up a batch of magic reindeer food. Great Christmassy puzzles and a Buble soundtrack for you to sing along to, whats not to love?

family friendly

A lovely family-friendly room themed around a granny's living room. If you played the 2020 In Time Christmas game then you'll find it rather familiar, but it has been improved. Great fun and perfect for newbies and younger players.

A Christmas version of their Ghostly Galleon room, nicely themed for the festive season but the puzzles are very very similar.

Played Elfin Mistake last year as an Avatar room and had to come back for this years updated version to see the lovely elves Lorna and Jo. If you played last year you'll find the story, room and telescape interface rather familiar, and maybe one or two of the puzzles too (if you've a good memory) but there's lots of new stuff in there to play. Its a great way to get a festive escape room fix and is perfect to play with newbies or the family.

We had the best time laughing and joking with our Avatar elves who were definitely up for some banter and gave as good as they got... we were having so much of a laugh that we almost ran out of time! 
Thanks for the laughs Lorna and Jo, I have missed your madcap mayhem avatar style! 

A Halloween special where you visit rooms you may find familiar as you try to solve the mystery. Some excellent use of darkness and some nods to their previous avatar offerings. Excellent scary fun.

Played the updated version of the Pyramid and the puzzles haven't gotten any easier, but more team interaction is now allowed. Great hosting and lots of fast pace puzzling to keep the adrenaline levels high. Great fun.

family friendly

Played the avatar version. Fun room with a retro games theme and good puzzles, some nice new features added to the telescape too make it more interactive.  Good host too.

Played the avatar game, nicely themed with some inventive puzzles, and its a Christmas game... and I LOVE Christmas games. Good hosting as usual too 

Outcome: Successful escape!

Have I told you how much I LOVE Christmas rooms? Well... I do, I LOVE them, they're bright and glittery and have music you can sing to and they make you smile. They're the escape room equivalent of a lovely warm hot chocolate with all the toppings, and this one does that nicely.

The puzzles are wonderfully themed and are quite inventive, there's lots of puzzles you can access at the same time, so everyone can solve something and there's the most wonderful team photo opportunity at the end. Whats not to love?

story-driven

A faithful rendition of the Sweeny Todd story, the room production is good and the theming is atmospheric and well built. The room is a little dark, but lanterns are provided which help immensely. The narrative progresses well and the puzzles fit nicely into the story.

The room has literally just opened when we played so we had a couple of gameplay niggles, mostly in the latter stages, but I've allowed for these in the scoring.  

A more cerebral take on the "kidnapped by a serial killer" theme, with some interesting puzzles and a decent narrative. Gameplay was very good and it has a satisfying finale, well worth playing before it closes.

Fun jumanji inspired room with the usual puzzles you'd expect for a homage to the film/game. Well themed and puzzles are all logical, and the game plays well.

Outcome: Successful escape!

Well themed spooky room with some nice scary moments. The narrative is evident throughout the adventure and leads to a very thematic and satisfying finale. My only niggle with this room was a rather hard and uncomfortable crawl.... it was a very short crawl, but my knees still protested.

This was my favourite of all the Escape Kent games as it is a minimal information room. First you need to find the puzzles before you can solve them! The puzzles are clever and tricky in places, but all are logical and there is signposting for them all... if you can find it.
I loved this room as I got to think "sideways" a lot in there and it was a great challenge, but I'm sure this will be labelled as a marmite room (you'll either love it or hate it).

This is a great room to test your teams communication skills. The narrative progresses nicely as you work together to progress with the jailbreak. The new game time makes this a tighter game and its to the benefit of the gameplay as otherwise it would feel rushed. I enjoyed the challenge, but I can imagine some teams will hate it.

Nice example of the serial killer room, lots of puzzles you'd expect and a couple you wouldn't, but the narrative works them in well. One of the better 'kidnapped by a serial killer' rooms I've done this year.

A great example of a pirate game, the puzzles are very well themed and logical, the room is well decorated to look like a pirate ship and there's a nice narrative and mission. A great fun room.

Outcome: Successful escape!

Great room for beginners and for families, but not a challenge for experienced players. Saying that it doesn't pretend to be anything other than an introductory game, and it does that very well. Some great fun moments and general silliness to be had, its a great breath of fresh air for a game binge.
