Panic Room Harlow – Strike Force – 6.5/10
We’ve just received troubling news earlier today that General Mayhem has become unstable! Before he could be relieved of command, he has activated the counter strike nuclear protocol and disabled the mainframe system!
Gain access to the abort button hidden within the General’s bunker and deactivate the counter strike. It’s the only way to stop the nuke before it’s too late! With only 60 minutes on the clock, this mission is sure to go out with a bang! Can you save the world? Or will it all blow up in your face?
A new Panic Room classic, this explosive new experience is sure to get the adrenaline pumping!
Played September 2020
This was our first room of the day but our enthusiastic host, Will, soon got us in the mood using some ‘explosives’ to get us in. On entry the room definitely had a good bunker feel with some cool props and on-point decor.
The props linked in well with the puzzles although I have to admit we did get stumped on one thing and had to ask for a clue. Was early in the day though! 😉
Although the puzzles were good we felt the room was too linear for us as we prefer to be working on more than one thing at a time in smaller groups/individuals rather than all crowding round one thing. This definitely affected our score for the room. With that in mind this is recommended for groups of 2-3 (more if you’ve got younger members of the group).
