Review: Alien - iLocked, Nottingham

Room Story - from iLocked

Our Alien escape room sends commands into the future, to the year 2224. Players are astronauts flying a spaceship back to Earth from the planet Next. Suddenly, the ship's self-destruct system reports unknown biomaterial. Aliens! Players have to get rid of them, but it will not be easy. How can disaster be averted? Players have to race through the spaceship's numerous modules, where they will find lots of things to investigate. Will they be able to use the space technology correctly? That depends on whether they can fight off the invading aliens. Players have just one hour to get out. This space horror-themed escape game from Ilocked is great fun for family and friend teams.

Compendium is a new venue in Bury that’s only been open for less than 2 months at the time of writing. The place is designed and run by a couple of real enthusiasts, and our game history tells us that this usually results in excellent games. Bury is only a small town, but it’s strangely become a place with 3 different escape room companies (the others being Time Race and Trapped In). From our first visit, I can safely say that Compendium is an excell…

Review: Robin of Lockskey - Escapologic, Nottingham

Room Story - from Escapologic

Your team are students at a prestigious university under the tutelage of the eccentric history professor, Dr. John Little. Last he told you, he was close to finding the true location of Robin Hoods grave.

show more.... He believed Robin was buried here, under the old car park.

Unfortunately a building company recently purchased the land and they want to fill it in with concrete, unknowingly destroying one of the greatest finds in British history.

The professor was found trespassing on the site, looking for evidence of the grave and has been arrested. The task has been left to you.

The work is set to be started after the builders return from lunch in one hour.

Go down into the site, find Robins grave, bring evidence back up to the surface and stop them destroying history! less
