It looks quite nice but it's odd, the hosting is rubbish and you'll have to make some astounding leaps in logic. They brag no one's ever done it with no clues.....no shit!

Weird. not much to do. Easy to bypass a lot of it. Hosting was rubbish.

I did like this a lot - it's huge and there's a lot to do. Two niggles - the first puzzle, which is VERY easy - the lock was stuck so we lost about five mins and our host should have stepped in. The second is that at times it's far too loud. I'm autistic so have noise sensitivity issues and despite commenting several times to the GM, the sometimes (purposefully) quite stifling music was really overwhelming.

This one's ok, but there isn't a great deal to do or see and it involves a lot of reading. One puzzle wasn't reset properly so our host had to run in and interrupt us.

It's a bit battered, but it's good fun and there was a few unexpected bits.

Like this - lots to do, nicely decorated, good theme. Very solid room.

Pretty woeful game tbh. Not a great use of space, not very thematic, couldn't hear the video. We absolutely burned through it and then spent about 15 mins on one stupid puzzle that's designed only to waste time and slow people down due to the rest of the game being so easy. It also has nothing to do with the theming of the game.

By far the best game we've played across the Breakout Franchise. Suitably difficult at parts, good story, nice rooms. Liked it.

Superb. Love a collection game that ensures your full hour and this one is jammed with puzzles, gorgeous to look at and funny as all heck. Highly recommended.

This room is 'ok' in the grand scheme of things, but some parts of it are just absolutely unnecessarily difficult, and you don't need to solve everything before you can escape.

Played: 4 Jun 2022 Team size: 2 Time taken: 39 Outcome: Successful escape!

Meh. Not much to do. Very easy apart from a few bits that make absolutely no sense.

Played: 12 Jun 2022 Team size: 2 Time taken: 58 Outcome: Successful escape!

Not sure I get the hype. I like that it's more story driven but I think quite a lot of sign posting to wtf is going on is missing until the end. Also some bits take literal seconds and some take ages, which doesn't necessarily feel balanced.

broken techplainunoriginal

Just a room with props chucked in, barely any story, puzzles pretty illogical to the theme. Needs a good clean. Nearly everything is plastered with do not touch stickers that kill any immersion. Also the tech was broken and they replaced it with a paper version, but it was wrong, so we lost a load of time on the wrong answer to something. Also they tell you to take your phone in for a torch and a calcular.....buy some torches and calculators. I'll lend you a tenner for them.

It's ok. Not a great deal to do and not a very big space, but you generally know what you're getting beforehand with Breakout.

Amazing. The spaces are just used so beautifully. It's like being in a film. Host was absolutely brilliant as well and a great laugh.

Flawless. The space is absolutely tremendous and like being on the set of a movie. The puzzles are terrific - well thought out, logical and flow well. It's on the harder side, but I loved that, felt like we worked for our escape. Highly recommended.

What an absolutely superb game. We didn't come up for breath for a minute of the whole hour. Easily one of the best I have ever played.

Played: 21 May 2022 Team size: 3 Time taken: 42 Outcome: Successful escape!

Sadly a miss for us. Probs the one we were most hyped for but our host just didn't seem into it, it wasn't remotely scary (and we'd been really scared by Howitz) and the interventions by the butcher went on forever. There was also a lack of things to actually do. Just a lot of searching for stuff to put in the right place, assumedly as you're supposed to feel tense about the butcher coming back, but we just didn't.

This sort of game is right up my street. You're completely immersed from the first second, loads of little jump scares and innuendos. Fun puzzles and tasks and a huge beautiful space. My favourite at Escapologic.

The main concept of this game is brilliant - something we'd never soon. Great host, very story driven and lots to do. It's really hard for a two so I'd make sure you're v confident if taking it on as two.

It was just ok. Very easy. A lock broke and so our host had to spend a good few minutes in the room trying to unlock it (she couldn't) but luckily it didn't hinder the progress of the game. Ruined the immersion big time though. The whole game just felt a bit flat.

Played: 7 May 2022 Team size: 2 Time taken: 27 Outcome: Successful escape!

One of the worst I've ever played. Host had no idea what she was doing, had to enter the room several times to reset things she'd forgot to reset. The main centre piece of the room is a ticking down bomb and you cut a wire when you're done. She couldn't figure out how to fix it so said we should just walkie talkie her which wire we would cut. This was made harder when she later (after entering the room) forgot to take it back out with her. Nothing particularly original and extremely easy.

Played: 7 May 2022 Team size: 2 Time taken: 24 Outcome: Successful escape!

Rubbish. Barely anything to do, looks cheap, barely any props or story and our host had no idea what she was doing.

Played: 7 May 2022 Team size: 2 Time taken: 65 (of 90 mins) Outcome: Successful escape!

This is supposed to be 40 mins outside then 50 mins in a vault. Outside takes like 25 max and then you're thrown into a room with no briefing. The lights don't work and considering it's brand new it's really dusty and everything looks well-used. It was very easy.

Far too easy. A resounding meh from me. Host was nice.

This one's perhaps the least 'immersive' game at LE but we loved it as we just clicked with it and felt like mega geniuses all the way through.

Nice use of a small space and some really clever theming at times.

Gorgeous set, some unique puzzles and great use of tech. Took us a while to get going but that's because we're objectively bad at searching.

I liked this game a lot. It's puzzle-lite but that's because it's much more physical/story driven than a lot of games.

It was pretty good, looked great. Bit of broken tech at the end that takes away from the story.

This is a terrific game in a lovely space. Flows really well, loads of interesting puzzles. Only reason I knocked half a star off is our host was what I would describe as 'uninterested'.
