Hi Trish, Thank you for taking the time to write us a review! Wonderful to hear that you were able to engage in some friendly competition, although it does make me curious to know who came out on top in the end! Should you be looking to extend your competition further then you will also have the chance to compete at our upcoming Broadstair's site which will offer two brand new escape rooms unlike anything else in the country. Kind Regards, The Escapement.

This was our second visit to The Escapment in Margate where we took on Pirates of Polaris. We previously went and puzzled our way out of Egyptian Exodus which was so brilliant we simply had to go back (especially with a returning customer discount!). The game was built from an old 130 year old ship which made the atmosphere of the game perfect. I know they work with a local set design company which really shows as everything is polished. The puzzles were challenging without being frustrating and gave a great sense of achievement upon working them out. Our team of 4 fit perfectly for this room, and although I know 6 players can do them, it would probably be a bit of a squeeze. The story line was excellent and really added to our enjoyment. The game is 90 minutes long so unlike other escape rooms, when you finish in time you feel like you’ve had a decent amount of playing time.

Credit has to go to our game master Jadine who remembered our faces and made us feel like good friends returning. Her enthusiasm for the games and natural storytelling was simply sublime. Our whole experienced was enhanced by her enjoyment and passion for the games.

There is some street parking around and a few car parks only a 10 minute walk away, or the train station a touch further so easy for everyone to get to. It’s situated right on a corner so easy to locate but the outside world just disappears when you step into their immersive world of puzzles.

We have already booked to go back to take on The Pit and when we left found ourselves talking about it all the way home. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

We booked to play The Pit last night after already having escaped from Pirates of Polaris and what an absolute treat. The room is immersive, technical and just the right degree of challenging. A huge shout out to our games master James for making our time so great, we’ll be back to play Exodus!

We did The Pit and enjoyed the atmospheric effects that really set the mood for the task. Once inside we encountered some things we needed to do and use that we haven't seen before in escape rooms and we were given good hints from our host Ellie.
We made it out in just over an hour (the game can last longer than the standard 60 minutes).

A couple friends and I recently did 'The Pit' and it was truly amazing. The escape room itself was fun and had a lot more to it than just a singular room with a wide variety of puzzles. Another aspect which was just excellent was the staff, they really help you get into the mood and prepared for the room with some amazing jokes here and there.
