This was our second room at Escape London. It was a step up in difficulty from Overthrone. It’s themed around the illuminati and the Da Vinci code. 

The main room is a good space, jammed with a spread of puzzles. They are at a nice mix of style and complexity. 

One thing that frustrated me during this room was a seven minute delay in getting help when we were stuck. We were totally bamboozled, and kept ringing the buzzer without response. Myself tired after a day at work and a journey across London, didn’t appreciate the wait. 

As I understood it, there was just one dude looking after reception and up to 3 other rooms, and this really cost us the enjoyment. 

Unlike all of the other rooms at the Shepherd’s Bush Escape London, a lot of the clues are totally forgettable. This Da Vinci room is one of Da Worst I’ve played.

Unless of course, you’re a big group of Da Vinci Code fans. And if you are, let me wish you 🜯 🜃 ☊
