“Seriously challenging”
Reviewed 21 July 2014 via mobile

I went with my girlfriend and I was initially hesitant it might be a bit simple and childish for us (I'm a highly qualified technical professional) so I picked the hardest rated theme (detective x). Turns out I had nothing to worry about, it's certainly suitable for serious adult problem solvers. It's intense, a good mix of real tension and fun cheesiness. We did not manage to solve it within the hour, but as it was quiet (early Monday afternoon) the staff let us keep going. We were eventually victorious after about 90-100 minutes. Very satisfying, I'd go back if I had more time.

“A great game and a great place”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

I had heard of places like this in a newspaper and thought, "What?! Why would anyone want to be trapped in a room for an hour?"

But, after I did it, I'm just disappointed we had a flight to catch and couldn't do more! :D

Basically, you (and your friends, if you go together, which I'd recommended) are the star in a mystery movie. You're put into a room, given a few basic instructions ("Find the murderer and leave this room"), and a time-limit. You search the room (floor, walls, props, etc.) for clues to find clues that will help you unlock locks and/or otherwise "break the code".

We did the hardest one, the murder mystery. The time-limit is an hour, but we were too slow. Luckily, instead of just kicking us out to try again, they let us keep going. It took us about 1 hour and 35 minutes and we were 8 recent university graduates, haha.

It was a BLAST. You work together as a team, the story is believable enough, it feels fantastic when you finally figure out a clue, and the staff want you to have a fun time.

Definitely would recommend and with friends, too. :D Seriously, I don't think I could have spent my afternoon a better way.
