This was my first ever escape room and what a room – it is no surprise that I got the bug! My friends and I had never done an escape room before so didn’t actually have a clue what we were meant to be doing. With good humour, the gamemaster gave us a lot of clues and luckily, we made it to the end – just.

Both the storyline and decor were fantastic and helped to create a rustic yet mystical atmosphere. The range of puzzles were amazing and there was a brilliant surprise in the last room – I won’t give any spoilers away.

With hindsight, I wish I had been more experienced when going in the room as at the time, I didn’t fully appreciate it. Overall it is a well-planned room with excellent puzzles and theming. I would highly recommend this one if you find yourself in Belfast.
