📖 THE STORY
This escape room is located in the real abandoned South Kentish Town tube station. The lost passenger is based on a true story of Mr. Brackett’s disappearance shortly after the station has closed down in 1924. It seems like recently there’s been some paranormal activities going on in the station. Do you dare to enter for an investigation?
🎯 HIT THE BULLSEYE
Unique location for an escape room.
Utilized the location’s local history to recreate a relevant story.
Set design was very immersive. It almost feels like a war-time bunker.
Props used were very authentic and high quality.
Game master was very on point with his intro.
Love how it “begins”.
Clever ways to utilize the space of the room so it felt bigger than it was and created fun ways for the players to maneuver through them.
🧩 MISSED THE MARK
Too many red herring props that did nothing.
There was a puzzle at the beginning where we couldn’t do anything but wait for one party to complete a puzzle. If some additional puzzles could be added while that’s happening, it would make the room feel less linear especially with a larger group.
At times we were not sure if we solved a puzzle or not as we had no idea what we triggered.
🏹 TAKE A SHOT?
This was definitely one of the most unique escape room locations we’ve ever been to. We felt immersed before the game even started. If you love historical sites with a bit of eeriness, you will love this escape room. This room was not puzzle-heavy nor were the puzzles difficult. Adventure seekers will enjoy finding the “right buttons” in this room. As some areas did feel quite crammed and linear, our recommended size for this room is 3 people.
