This is billed as the hardest (and scariest) room at Escape London Shepherds Bush. Just a two-person, we knew it would be a challenge.
After a hit-and-miss from the last two visits, this was a really fun, intense, head scratcher of a room.
I’m a man who likes a lot of puzzles and this really stretched me. I can’t actually recall a more puzzle-heavy room.
It’s all on theme, and the progression really works. The spooky elements spooked, and I’d actually like to go back and re-do this room again to take it all in. There is one red-herring that frustrated us. It wasn’t a fun or satisfying reveal.
This was only the second time I went over 60 minutes, but we consoled ourselves that it’s a tough room, and I think a team of 3-4 is ideal here.
Thanks to the staff for providing us with one big scare and resultant big belly-laugh for me.
