Dark Master Escape Rooms – One Wing Airlines – 8.5/10
Crowborough, East Sussex
LEAKED FILES HAVE REVEALED THE DARK MASTER’S WHEREABOUTS…
…and we’ve booked you seats on the only flight headed in that direction. There’s just one problem, it’s with One Wing Airlines. And we all know their history of doomed journeys.
Recruits (that’s you) will need to board the flight and, providing the plane arrives at its destination safely, find and detain The Dark Master. For all our sakes, let’s hope your team returns in one piece.
We went straight into our second room of the day at Dark Master as luckily they didn’t have anyone else booked in the next slot. Ana made sure we were seated safely on our flight prior to departure and then we settled in for one of the most amusing intro videos I’ve ever seen – definitely doesn’t leave you feeling very err, safe…
The theme is really excellent as you are somehow on an actual plane and it moves so a really immersive experience indeed. Can’t imagine the amount they’ve had to invest in that!
Good variety of puzzles which even got the toilet involved (!!) with some physical, some logic and also dexterity (that’s a hard no on the latter for me) as well as just being thorough in your searches as ever.
Dark Master recommend 2-6 people which seems about right depending on ability, i.e. I probably wouldn’t attempt it as a newbie 2. Some crawling involved in this room so be mindful of that when you book.
Located on an industrial estate so no shops/cafes but they do have soft drinks and snacks for sale as well as some complimentary Lotus biscuits while we were there (I could eat a LOT of those – don’t look at the calories!).
