Hamburg Escape Rooms: Big Break

A fun set of rooms in the heart of Hamburg. We played Insomnia and Time Travel which were beautiful experiences with good puzzles and a great sense of exploration. Their third game also looked plenty of fun based on a brief walkthrough.

Hamburg Escape Rooms: Escape Venture

A review of the Doc Eisenbarth and Artefacts in this Hamburg franchise venue. Both were reasonable games but neither were particularly exciting.

Hamburg Escape Rooms: Twisted Rooms

A brief review of the Twisted Rooms venue which closed down not long after we visited. It’s not gone forever though – it’s reopening later this year nearby.

Hamburg Escape Rooms: Adventure Team

A high quality venue where we played two quite different games. If you’re a fan of more traditional escape rooms then They Stole a Million will probably appeal but if you want something a big higher tech then Countdown to Meltdown is the better choice. Or just play both!

Escape Room Hull: The Bank Job

A fun bank job game that presents a real challenge even for enthusiasts. It kept us busy for most of the hour, rarely leaving any of the team feeling like they were at a loose end and at times almost felt like we were involved in a real heist.

Can You Escape? (York): Operation H.E.R.O.

A highly structured superhero mission with some great puzzles that were slightly marred by tech failures. In spite of that, I’d still highly recommend you head along and play – I still really enjoyed it with those failures and if you’re lucky enough to avoid them then you’ll have a great time.

- Overall rating:
Escape Room Hull: The Aviator's Study

A fun but simple room with lots of logical puzzles. For me, it’s a great game for introducing players to the genre but enthusiasts should probably steer clear as it won’t present much of a challenge.

- Overall rating:
ClueTrace (London): Mission Critical

A middle of the road game that would probably be decent value as a pair but lacks the depth to play as a larger group given the breadth of games on offer in London.
