A round up of all the special offers available in London at the moment (including a few that are exclusive to this site) covering 20 different companies and discounts of up to around 50%.
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.
A charming game that represents a step up since their first outing. It’s one of those experiences where I felt the whole was greater than the sum of the parts although the parts weren’t too shabby either.
That rarest of experiences – a game created for precisely two players. A good game that doesn’t amaze but rarely puts a foot wrong – good theming, good flow, good puzzles, good finale. Like I said – a good game.
A great taster event for A Door in a Wall. If you’re looking to organise a fun birthday party or corporate event with plenty of time for mingling then it’s a great choice. Don’t go in expecting their usual full scale events and you’ll likely come away very happy with the experience.
A very different game from your average experience. It’s not particularly challenging and, as a popup, doesn’t have the beautiful, solid finish of a permanent game. What it does have is fun – managing to be easily accessible for first-timers while still having enough that’s different from your average escape room to engage enthusiasts.
A basic game that takes you on a nice stroll through London. The technology that backed up the game just worked and the clues made sense but there was nothing very exciting about the experience. It’s a fun pastime if you’ve got a couple of hours to kill in the centre of London on a nice day but not something I’d make the centrepiece of a day out.
A pretty game with an outstanding clue system that managed to avoid breaking the immersion. The puzzles were the weak link in the chain – a couple felt a bit tenuous and the final challenge left me disappointed.
Another high tech room from the Escape Rooms stable. As with their other Angel room, they’ve traded some of the more difficult puzzles for a more arcade game style play which will likely appeal to some players while turning others off.
Is this where escape rooms are heading? I hope not in their entirety but I enjoyed this style of experience as something different from your typical escape room. Less emphasis on the puzzles and more on the adventure.
