At the weekend just gone, a few of us went to try out the new Escape Room in Cardiff

Obviously, this review won’t include any spoilers for the specific puzzles we encountered on our quest to Find Sherlock

On arrival we were met by the staff, given a health and safety briefing, asked not to take cameras or phones in with us (there are lockers for safe storage of things you don’t want to take in).

We were taken to the room, and locked in – don’t worry if you are claustrophobic, there is an “emergency exit” button in the room, and the staff are monitoring progress through the cctv cameras.

The puzzles themselves were a mix of those we’ve seen before – find clues which lead to combinations for locks – mixed in with some cleverer puzzles I’d not seen before – but that gave us a few “ah-ha” moments during the game – which is always very rewarding.

Suffice to say, we enjoyed the experience and will definitely be going back to try the other rooms on offer 🙂
