Review: Edith - Unescapable, Derby

Room Story - from Unescapable

When we first open a time portal we send one of our scientists back to make sure everything is ok and it is all safe and stable - we sent Edith, but unfortunately she hasn’t returned… We’ve now lost communication with her, but we do know that she was trying to shut the portal down when something stopped her. We need your team to finish the job - we would go ourselves but we’re too scared.

We’d seen extremely good things about Edith and booked the room in full knowledge that it was a scary room. As the time drew nearer, we grew more and more nervous about what to expect. And when Unescapable won an award for the scariest escape room in the country, we wondered what we’d let ourselves in for.

At Unescapable, the theming and immersion starts from when you enter the door with people in lab coats greeting you and explaining the s…

The only woman to have gotten the best of him. Maybe he let her, only he knows.

Irene Adler, Adventurer, Criminal, Friend/ Nemesis of Sherlock, she has once again gotten the best of him. There is a letter addressed to him, that she made off with. What is on it, no one knows for sure, but Sherlock is sure she took it.

Our friend, the Great Sherlock Holmes, has asked for you to go the house of Irene Adler, and find this stolen letter. Be warned, she is unlike any woman you have seen before, and I am sure she has some tricks up her sleeve.

We’ve wanted to visit Lucardo in Manchester for quite some time but we’ve never quite got around to it, however, when we saw a branch was opening about 20 minutes from us in Rawtenstall we knew we’d need to give our closest escape game a try. We always have a mental list of the next games we want to play and decided we’d visit Lucardo Rawtenstall at some point in the future – however, the short distance was too tempting and we ended up going on their first week of opening!

Lucardo is set in two adjoined terraced houses behind Rawtenstall high street, so it’s quite an unusual venue from the outside. But step inside and there’s a decent size reception and waiting area and room for four escape rooms. It was exciting visiting a brand new venue and it was interesting to hear from Simon about how they set it up and their future plans. Simon is a really …

This was our first visit to The Escaporium. At the time of writing, they have two rooms split across two sites. One room, The Haligonian is based in the historic Piece Hall and the game we played is situated in a former mill building. They’ve done a great job renovating and have a really modern and welcoming reception area. We were speaking to one of the owners whilst waiting for our room and found out that they have lots of space to open many more rooms, which is exciting news considering the qua…

Review: The 13th Element - Escape Quest, Macclesfield

Room Story - from Escape Quest

The S.S.B (Special Scientific Branch) work undercover for the government and have been called in to help.

Setting up a covert operation to watch and track a selected number of scientists they have now located an area of suspicious activity, an old mill building on the edge of town where these scientists were seen to go in but never came out.

show more.... We sent in a team of our best undercover agents and managed to get a little information about what’s going on inside. It seems that the person responsible for these disappearances is a man known only as Dr Argon.

After taking the scientists prisoner he is forcing them to attempt to harness the power of 12 rare elements, combining these will activate and power the rarest element of all - The 13th Element, this is the element of immortality and its power can only be used by one person.

Your task as agents working for the S.S.B is to enter the building, infiltrate the lab and work together to harness t…
