Our first Escape London room, and my first ‘themed’ room anywhere. I’m a big fan and my Escape partner had not seen the show. 

Room layout is on point. Some really nice details all around the room to create that Westeros medieval vibe. Candles and lighting gave it that immersive ambiance. 

Without giving away spoilers, there are some really fun props that take centre stage during the game. As well, it’s a really tactile room. Big chunky things to get your hands on. 

We really liked the room. The finale had some last clues that were equally fun and frustrating. It was a rush to get our arses onto that throne, but we made it. 

Major host boo boo: the nice guy working there forgot to stop the clock at the end, so we had only an estimate of our time left. On the same subject, these guys ask that you do a dance when you need a clue. 

Some people might find this fun, but for us it felt the opposite. First up. You never want a client to feel like the joke is on them. Second, when frustrated in a room the last thing you want to do is dance to a camera.
