Where I popped my Escape Room cherry. ClueQuest happened to be a five minute walk from our office. That we stumbled upon arguably London’s strongest escape room is quite the coincidence!
What’s to love. The venue is in a very cool, quirky layout. What hits you immediately is the strong branding and theme. Kudos to the creators for weaving that narrative and iconography through their games.
For me, its full marks on fun factor and the creativity of their puzzles. My group was three other escape room first timers and it was such a positive experience.
The host was always there when we needed them, responding quickly and sensitive to the fact that we were newbies.
Another really important point is that the puzzles gain momentum as you progress. Starting small in a little office, ending with a real showpiece.
Such a professional set up: choc-a-bloc with custom-made props and puzzles. This remains the only room I’ve played where I’d happily go back and do it all again.
