Hide and Shriek: Alien Escape

Very disappointing puzzles but excellent set and theatrics. If you think of this as an escape room you’ll likely be disappointed. If you treat it as a scare attraction I think you’ll enjoy.

Live Escape Essex: Dr Wilson's Office

A solid room with a decent theme but let down by some not very exciting puzzles. Worth playing if you’re in the area but not one I’d travel to.

- Overall rating:
Live Escape Essex: Room 13

A room with a slight scare factor that shouldn’t put you off. Good theming but let down a bit by basic puzzles.

Hide and Shriek: Dead Centre

A fun, one hour zombie experience set in a working shopping centre. Plenty of zombies, lots of different scenes, good use of the space and a fitting finale.

- Overall rating:
Room Escape Southend: Zombie Outbreak

An adrenaline rush of a game. On theme from before you even enter the room and an outstanding performance from the zombie, but let down by the puzzles.
