Extremescape (Disley): Viking

The team behind Extremescape have done it again, delivering a beautiful set with engaging puzzles and fantastic moments of theatre. I was a little worried that they’d struggle to improve on their previous two games, but they absolutely have – coming up with plenty of new ideas to keep their loyal customers happy and putting even more polish into the experience.

Lucardo (Rawtenstall, Lancashire): Corruption

A refreshing room that showed padlocks don’t hurt good games. With decent puzzles and an original start and finish, this stood out from the crowd to be one of my favourite games in the area.

- Overall rating:
Deception Escape Rooms (Matlock, Derbyshire): Trapped

An enjoyable escape room with plenty of puzzles and a great sense of exploration and story. Some puzzles might have been a bit of a stretch but on the whole a thoroughly enjoyable experience in a pretty town.
