This was the last room of the day at Escape Hub for us and we were happy to still be looked after by the friendly Andy. He took us into a room which had been cleverly decorated to look like it had seen better days in the criminal underworld.
Plenty to keep us all amused as we worked individually and in teams to solve the nicely on theme puzzles. We did get caught out by a fixture of the room which is pretty classic Team DARKE if I’m honest – hopefully you won’t do the same!
Escape Hub like their padlocks but don’t make it seem overly arduous or repetitive which is great and they utilise a good variety of different types. The room did seem to click quite well for us as we actually set a new record – we shall see how long that lasts though of course!
Classic room good for enthusiasts and relative newbies alike. Would recommend for teams of 4-5.
