Houdinis Last Trick – EscapeMobile

When I heard about the Escape Mobile (which, as of the time of writing this, don’t seem to have an actual website) I knew I had to give it a go! An escape room type game inside a little van. How great is that! They featured at the Vaults festival, so I gathered a group of…

The Celestial Chain

After having tried The Lance Of Longinus before and hearing they were opening a second room, we simply had to return to Time Run to try out The Celestial Chain. As usual, arrival is a little awkward as they don’t have a waiting room and only let you in a few minutes before your booking….

The 12 Deaths Of Christmas

As an escape room aficionado I had heard about Room Escape Southend, a company that organsises pop-up escape rooms, usually with a horror theme, for a few months at a time before switching to a different theme. We decided to get into the holiday spirit by visiting their 12 Deaths Of Christmas room, themed around a…

Million Pound Heist

Another day, another escape room! Well, this one isn’t quite an escape room per se, it’s a bank heist! Which sounds even more fun if you ask me. I already did Enigma Quests’ School Of Witchcraft And Wizardry, which was amazing, so when they announced a kickstarter to finance this new room, I just had to…

Mind The Game

Another escape game we just had to try out. We booked our spot for Sunday afternoon, half of our team had visited Highgate Cemetery in the morning and with rail replacement buses being confusing and unreliable, we Ubered to arrive with just a few minutes to spare. The owner greeted us politely and let us have…

Time Run – The Lance Of Longinus

Time Run is a fantastic experience! These people really have the immersive part of this business down. From the moment you arrive, they play their roles and get you into the mood. The actors were fantastic and the steampunky time travel theme is really well done. Without giving anything away about the actual riddles and…

Omescape – The Joker’s Asylum

This new escape room company, Omescape, has it all figured out! They’re offering three different rooms at different difficulty levels. The second room we tried here was The Joker’s Asylum, the most difficult room. The difficulty prediction seems pretty dead on, so make sure you know what you’re getting into. We once again got the…

Omescape – The Penitentiary

This new escape room company, Omescape, has it all figured out! They’re offering three different rooms at different difficulty levels. We tried out the medium difficulty, The Penitentiary, first. The difficulty prediction seems pretty dead on, so make sure you know what you’re getting into. The staff was still a little insecure from what I…

Lady Chastity’s Reserve

This escape room by Handmade Mysteries is quite something! It was very enjoyable and really well done. Don’t worry, there’s no spoilers in this review. You can gather and chill in the Four Thieves pub downstairs and wait for Gabriel to find you. You’ll easily recognise him by his old timey garb and creepy stare….

Locked In A Room With A Zombie

I organised a group of friends to fill all 12 slots for this escape room adventure. You can book individual tickets for this experience, but I figured a full group of friends would be perfect. When we arrived, we were greeted by a young man in a lab coat who explained the rules while constantly…

Escape Rooms – The Pharaoh’s Chamber

We played the Pharaoh’s Chamber room at Espace Rooms, so my review will be based on this room alone. It’s a very central location, so that’s a plus right off the bat! The staff were pleasant but seemed a little distracted to me. I’ve definitely had more enthusiastic staff at other escape games. The decor…

clueQuest

clueQuest has a very clever theme going throughout their operation. We did Plan52, so my review will be based on my experience with that. I do want to try their other challenges as well at some point though. I obviously can’t give anything from inside the rooms away, but here’s the basic ghist. Mr. Q…
