Eight people is a reasonable amount of players for escape rooms. Everyone will find something to do: strategizing, taking charge, searching for clues, solving puzzles, cheering the team on, counting down the minutes, wandering from room to room or chatting up the game master. Book one of the rooms in Sheffield and find out what will your contribution be!
Did this room with 3 players. Really excellent room. Has a good amount of guidance, helping you understand what you should be looking for or needing to do next, while still requiring a bit of lateral thinking and problem solving. This game is all about communication though, and that's what really makes it special. That element of being separated and having to talk through the doorways is the defining factor that will make or break your escape. We escaped in 55mins, needing 2 hints, without ever feeling too rushed. For the most part the room flowed very well, and I can't complain at the things we missed. My only slight negative was the constant quite loud static noise in the comms room, which made hearing my friends even trickier as I'm not good at listening to voices when there's lots of background sound but it wasn't a huge issue. Overall would highly recommend.Simon
Our team of 1st timers took on Placebo....and failed, the first 5 minutes I thought we'd never get anywhere never mind escape. Can't wait to come back and try all the other rooms. Brilliant staff too, gutted when they showed us how close we were to escaping. It's a great place you have there team!Sarah
We've been today, boxing day. And was greeted by 2 fantastic members of staff. The puzzles were great, the rooms were fun and we'll decorated. We had an amazing time. Didn't escape though. We did the mad scientist one. Would recommend. We will be coming againJoseph
