I was invited back to Mission Breakout second room after my visit over a year ago to trial their latest room of The Lost Passenger.
The story of the room is loosely based on a true story of a passenger who got off the train at South Kentish Town station back in 1924. Just after 1924 when this station closed, a train suddenly stopped at South Kentish Town by mistake and a male passenger by the name of Mr Bracket got off and then the train departed, it is not known whether Mr Bracket escaped or has he been stucked there since 1924?
The room and game design did not disappoint, we was told that the design were from designers orginating from Russia, and every part of this new room really challenges the mind and phsyical abilities (Dont worry, there isn’t any heavy lifting involved).
As for most of my escape room reviews, I wont be able to give too much of the game away, however, be prepared to be ducking and crawling to your next destination so put away your glad rags and be prepared to get mucked in.
Team work is key and communication with your group is a must, there are lots of clues you will need to work together in order to solve the riddle and move on. The game is very linea and you must solve one clue before moving on to the next.
Our group escaped with just under 2 minutes to spare, and logical thinking and team work made sure we escape in the nick of time.
Due to the location of the rooms especially the last one, and the summer heatwave London was having at the moment, it did get quite warm in the room, also as there was 6 of us in the rooms it got very uncomfortable at times. But hey let’s not complain too much about the weather here!
I would however recommend that due to some of the games where only one or two players can work on them at a time, the room should really hold a maxium of 4 players to give each players an opportunity to solve some of the puzzles/ clues.
Regardless, I really enjoy the game and totally recommend friends to come and challenge their wit and escape.
A good 4**** for me on this one!
