We have done 3 other Houdini escape rooms in Southampton, all of which are fantastic. The ones in Kegworth have good theming but the gamemasters interrupt the flow of the game far too much.

This is a well-designed room with some great puzzles. Unfortunately the gamemaster constantly interrupted our game with clues even though we didn’t want them. Be could barely stand still for a few seconds without her telling us the next step and so we felt cheated out of the chance to work it out ourselves. Potentially a good room but their gamemasters need more training.
