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.
A fun game that isn’t likely to wow but should keep you entertained for most of an hour with a decent variety of puzzles.
A thoroughly polished game that I’d put right up there as one of the best in the North West. Looks beautiful, lots of puzzles and a very good structure to the game is topped off by a finale that felt it was taken straight from Star Trek.
A sprawling game with some interesting challenges but an ambiguous opening puzzle got the room off to a bad start and a series of rough-around-the-edges challenges throughout the game left us ultimately frustrated.
Solid decoration, good puzzles, plenty of communication and a little bit of theatre: this game has plenty going for it. Well worth a visit, especially if you can must a team that’s up for the versus mode!
A fun-filled adventure, packed full of puzzles and searching that kept the pair of us occupied for almost 40 minutes with barely a pause for breath. This isn’t high brow escaping with complicated puzzles, amazing backdrop or deep narrative. This is easy-access with puzzles that aren’t too daunting, a set that more than does its job and a flow that kept the adrenaline high right to the very end.
