This is a room worth checking out at Engima Quests. The aim is to explore a high-class thief’s safe house before infiltrating the bank to escape with as much dosh as possible.
The first room is, for me, a classic escape room. It looks good, feels real and is full of cool shit to pick up and examine.
I always say the mark of a great escape room is if you’re smiling and can enjoy some banter, together, while you escape. They nailed it here, combining physicality and brain-scratchers really nicely.
Use of props was on point. And, crucially it really felt like a heist.
The hosting was helpful, and it’s a clever way they work the hints into the story. We could have a good laugh with the host, but they scored a point down for forgetting to email us the team photo later on, as they said they would.
This is as ideal for a group fairly new to escape rooms as it is for an experienced team of crack
criminals escape roomers.
