So how have things moved on since July? Well, I did indeed visit Time Run. Tick. I also managed to escape from both of Lock’d’s rooms, which hadn’t been on the cards. Sadly, I haven’t managed to organise the Agent November outing though. It hadn’t occurred to me that they require daylight, so close early from September. The upshot

London timeline

As the number of unvisited escape rooms in London dwindles, we’re left wondering how quickly more will open to satisfy our escape room hunger. The good news is that new rooms, games and venues have been opening reasonably frequently for the last year or so. Averaging over one game a month, and in some months as many

Lock'd: Grandpa's Last Will

Outside the room Well, this is embarrassing. As you may have read in the last escape room post (on Museum Warehouse) we’d had a lot of fun and finished quite quickly. On escaping, our host said that since we’d got out so quickly, there was enough time for us to sneak into Grandpa’s Last Will before

Lock'd: Museum Warehouse

A straightforward but fun escape room in Bermondsey. Plenty of puzzles, ranging from the very straightforward to the quite fun. A little bit of technology and lots of searching.

Before the event Back in May, I decided to branch out from the usual escape room events that I’d been attending and visit A Door in a Wall‘s event The Life and Death of Paul Marrane. I’d never heard of the company before, but what was clear to me was that they had a loyal following,

Time Run: The Lance of Longinus

Outside the room It was clear, right from the start, that Time Run was going to be something special. When it first popped into my inbox, a quick look at the website hinted at production values well beyond anything else currently available in London. The site beckons you in, beguiles you as it swishes around the screen, and hooks you

It occurred to me that you might be interested in what escape room visits I’ve got in the plan. Well, currently I’ve got three booked, and am starting to look at a few more. I’m slowly working my way southwards through London (sorry to Mystery Cube – it might take a few more months to get to

Enigma Escape: The Killer

A review that suffers from playing immediately after the escape room opened back before I waited a few weeks before visiting. The most “real” live escape game I’ve ever played but let down by its linearity, which left players bored, and some strange videos. Since we played, this game has changed significantly.
