Company: City Mazes
Take a look beyond the highly scrubbed surface and you might find an escape into an alternate world. Where music and lights are there to immerse you and make you unaware of the universe in which all possession once belonged. Suddenly, the assets which people may have longed for become redundant, and all you are left with are the senses you were born with.
Pandora's Escape takes you into a space where no matter how much money is in the bank, or how many trinkets you own, all you need is your mind in order to get away from the facade, into the dream space, and out the other side.

This was our second experience of an escape room. I'm not sure how it relates to Pandora's box itself since there's no story attached the quest. We figured out the first puzzle within 5mins. We were then confronted with loads of red herrings and real clues. It seems that, whereas other escape rooms bombard you with puzzles, this escape room bombards you with red herrings to keep you in the room longer. It's frustrating because you're not trying to use your brain to work something out, instead you're just staring at a collection of 'could be' clues. We half cheated to get past the first room, which I'm pretty sure you shouldn't be able to do. The second room isn't related to the first at all. They're two separate escape rooms basically. This one had a big easy puzzle that would have taken 15mins to solve if you weren't in a dark strobe lit room, desperately trying to see the numbers on the padlocks and interpret clues in the split second the lights went on. This was not a good escape room.Angelique
Arrived 10 minutes before our slot, after a brief instruction we were let loose in the room. We had an hour to get out, and managed to do it in just over 40 minutes. I would rate the pandoras room as quite easy for a group of adults. There was also a lot of parking available as it's a part of an entertainment centre with food, cinema and a bowling alley amongst other things. We really enjoyed the experience and would definitely come back again to do one of the other rooms available!Artie
