After years on the straight and narrow, your past has finally come back to haunt you.
Once one of the most feared gangs in the USA, responsible for some of the most audacious and daring robberies in the country's history, time has mellowed your crew and retirement has been pretty uneventful.
That is until a shadowy figure from your 'less law abiding days' reappears to take revenge.
You have been framed, found guilty, sentenced and, given your shady past, that sentence is a tough one. Life to be exact. Life in one of the world's highest security prisons.
So now you find yourselves thrust back together with the old faces. Faces you last saw obscured by balaclavas and in the midst of a high speed pursuit many years ago... faces that bring back memories of the old ways. Old ways you will need more than ever if you are to escape into the sunset and finally disappear.
You are being readied for transportation on board prisoner shipping plane: Flight 338, but there is one member of the gang they didn't find. He has caused a disruption at the airstrip and left some things on board which you might just find useful, but is everything quite as it seems?

Played as a Beta Tester before the room was officially open. Was a fun experience with a good assortment of physical puzzles to contend with. Should be a good game when released!

Reviews by escape room review sites

The Riddle Within announced their debut game with plenty of fanfare: an escape room on an actual plane. Space in London is hard to come by, but their location in North Greenwich has not only a yard big enough for an airplane but an entire ex-nightclub for their lobby area.
You shouldn’t go expecting a 747; it’s a relatively small plane, but it’s still the genuine article. It’s also set up as a prison transport plane, since in this game you’re under arrest and being transported for trial;...
The world’s first escape room on a plane! The theming of this game was obviously fantastic and our host was amazing in his role of over the top security, creating a great buzz as we started. The concept of having to open different areas of the plane to find and solve puzzles really made this game enjoyable and I can’t wait to find out what the team come up with next – they’ve promised a more challenging game in the future and I’ll definitely be signing up as soon as it’s available!
