Lock Down Escape – The Lost Soul – 2/10
You are a Paranormal Investigator who has been trapped in a VORTEX of LOST SOULS.
You have 60 minutes to piece together evidence, find a trace and solve the puzzles before your soul is forever TAKEN to the other side…Will you escape?
Played – August 2016
*Update: since we went here in 2016 apparently the clue system and some of the puzzles have changed. This rating may not represent the game as it stands now.*
Having had the delays and then the disappointing Death Row game we tried to stay positive going in to The Lost Soul. The room you enter was a bit tired but again not badly decorated.
We started off better with a bit more variety in puzzles this time, however when we got halfway through and the game started to get creepy, all of a sudden despite not having signalled for a clue there the owner is, “how are you doing?” and BAM, the immersion rating disappears.
This was followed by some more counting and a super illogical just try all of these numbers puzzle.
We love escape rooms and we hate to give a bad review but it wasn’t for us, sorry. Maybe others would do better? Teams of 4 would be a good number if you’re planning on going.
