Escape game: Junk Yard
A very imaginative and unique escape room! Really impressed with variety of items used in the puzzles, including some really cool pieces of kit and knowing they are all upcycled makes it all the more impressive. I've done several escape rooms and this one really stood out for me because of the reasons above but also because the owner was a real joy, who clearly loves making interesting puzzles! We were a group of four who managed to 'escape' in under 50 minutes and were super chuffed to do so.Tony
Escape game: Junk Yard
Absolutely loved this! And it’s actually harder than you would think, you really need to enter with an open mind and think of every possibility. Good for teens and older since it challenges you to think outside the box. I would urge everyone to give it a go and make sure you take two or more friends with you :D Location is so awesome too, go for a jump and then challenge your brain right after!Rijwana
Escape game: The Battle of Britain
This really is a great escape ( excuse the WWII pun) experience. It is themed is themed around a WWII war room. A lot of effort has been put in to make the experience as authentic as possible with great room interiors and props. There are also sound effects in the background that add to the whole experience. It actually felt as if you had walked into rooms recently deserted by their WWII occupants, and that you were somehow illegally squatting. This actually added to the whole atmosphere and experience.Robert Ward
The theme of the game based around the Luftwaffe invasion over Kent, which became the 'Battle of Britain'. Our role was to save Britain by manning the operation in the War Room to bring down as many German aircraft as we could. To do this in a 60 minute timescale is a pretty tall order, but added to the tension and atmosphere.
I won't give away too much about the game itself, but there are plenty of tricky clues to solve, all with a great WWII touch. We even got to pose in uniform after the game, for an authentic looking period photo.
If you like escape rooms and are looking for something different with a real period atmosphere, I would highly recommend this escape room. The guys who created this have put a great deal off effort into creating one of the best escape room experiences currently in London. Great with a group of friends or a corporate team building exercise. Great! I'm pleased I manged to experience it!! Go!!!!!
Escape game: Sherlock Unlock
I really wanted to like this room, I did. But it was really not good, sorry guys. We did Chaos but based on my friend's experience the other room Outbreak was also pretty poor. There was no atmosphere setting from the host (very nice guy and perfectly helpful about the admin part of things), we were led into the room and told we had 60 mins. Fine - not a dealbreaker but 10-1=9. There were some interesting looking puzzles in there but so much IKEA furniture with the STICKER ON them it really ruins the game: 9-1=8. There so many red herrings in there (I know we need some, we always do) but when you are basically trying out all 4-digit numbers on every padlock to see if it works then you know there is no such thing as a "flow" when this game was planned. 8-1=7. There are only padlocks in the rooms, nothing else in terms of technical solutions - at some point I felt like this was a 101 in how NOT to do an escape room. 7-1=6. There were no less than 4 padlocks on the door and 2 on the drawers which meant the solving one puzzle didn't give you anything. I get that this kind of game is also for team-building & communication, but in that case please please please get different drawers/boxes/anything with pieces of one puzzle. Putting four different locks on the door is ugly, inelegant and just really not very fun: 6-5=4. There was one really interesting looking puzzle towards the end which we didn't have to crack and still escaped (and left one drawer locked)...how could that happen? 4-3=2. We didn't just blindly try numbers, I swear (though that would have worked too because padlocks were of really bad quality 2-1=1) which means there the whole room wasn't coherent! I'm really sorry guys, I can see the business case in opening an escape room in Canary Wharf and I really wanted to like it but this was the worst room I have ever done (I've de 12 in 4 cities so far: London, Budapest, Barcelona, Mumbai). Either then price this at £10 complete beginner level or better still - take a break and completely redesign the puzzles. If you are going I guess I have one piece of advice - go with less than 4 people or go alone if you are advanced and try to not look for any logical flow, just solve puzzles, ask for clues (without which there is no way to solve some of them) and move one. So far, any other escape room is better in the London market. Please don't be lazy and stay in the Wharf, just go to any other one. Sorry guys, honest opinion here.Shasha
Escape game: Questroom
Our first room escape game. Looking for something to do with two boys aged 12 and 10. Found Questroom through Tripadvisor and went for it as quite local. Friendly welcome. Really clear instructions. Everyone could get involved. The hour flew by. Definitely recommendKab190
