A well-executed escape room with bonus content that ensures novices have a fun adventure while still letting enthusiasts have their money’s worth.
Two games that were fun but run of the mill in many ways plus an Alice-themed gamed that was a joy to be in with beautiful decoration, good puzzles and a wonderful sense of exploration.
A game of ups and downs. A weak intro got things off to a disappointing start, but then the story progression in the game and the theatrics of the experience brought things back up. If you’re a glass-half-full kind of person, then you should have fun but, if you focus on the negatives, there’s plenty to frustrate you here.
A fun challenge that adds an extra layer to Clue HQ’s usual style of game. If you don’t mind lots of padlocks and a tendency towards observational puzzles, you’ll likely have fun here.
If you’re interested in playing a horror room, then this should be reasonably high up your list if you’re in the area. On the other hand, if you’re just after a normal experience, a flawed puzzle will really frustrate you at a critical point in the room.
Old school room with pretty much everything that entails. The decoration wasn’t engaging, the puzzles were OK but not super exciting, and the story was minimal. For new players it will be fun and they won’t particularly notice the rough edges. For experienced players, I think it’s worth heading elsewhere.
This was a feelgood room with plenty of puzzles, some of which were reasonably challenging although it’s unlikely to win prizes for decor. It’s definitely a decent challenge – keeping our experienced team of four fully occupied for a fair chunk of the allotted time.
The highlight of a 20-game New Year’s Eve trip, Lightning in a Bottle is filled with good harder-than-average puzzles, fun theatre and a pretty set.
A beautiful room that was fun to be in and had solid – albeit similarly styled – puzzles. With a relatively low difficulty level this is the perfect game for beginners to head along to..
A fun, coherent game with a reasonable theme and fun puzzles. At times some of those challenges were shoehorned in to the room but overall a very solid game.
