“Step back in time to 1942…Alastair Dennington the renowned cryptologist needs your help!Working for a secret government department on a small project to crack the ENIGMA machine, he needs you to collect the blue prints from his private residence in  Devon. The documents are hidden in the flat somewhere behind a series of cryptic puzzles for you to solve. They must be found before they fall into the hands of the enemy. Get the plans and key, get out as soon as you can.”

Host

We were greeted outside by our very friendly host Dan, who was very cheerful considering it was a considerably wet day. We were taken into a room and had a quick run down of the rooms safety rules and plot of the Bletchley prints.

Room Set Up 

This room was like stepping back in time. The decoration was incredible with everything in the room original to the era or made in the same style that you wouldn’t be able to tell the difference. The sound effects along with the rooms lighting completely submerged you, making you feel as if you were playing this game in the middle of the blitz. This room had more than enough space for the maximum team size.

Game Play

This is a linear game with each puzzle sequential to the next. Puzzles are very logical and the game flowed really well. You really had to work as a team for this game, each member of the team had a role during each puzzle so no one was ever left without anything to do. Team work is crucial in this game as slightest error can cost you a lot of time. Everything in this room was automated, which is something we really liked.

Clue System

Clues were given via a telephone where you could speak directly to the host.

Advertised Difficulty

There isn’t one but we would rate this a 4/5

Escape time

We failed to escape ‘Oh Bother’

Our Overall Rating

10/10

We thoroughly enjoyed this room, Dan has put so much thought and craftsmanship into creating this pocket in time. An aspect that we loved about the room is that everything is authentic and from the minute you arrived you were immersed in the era. Your completely transported back to 1942 with the decor and effects, this room is nothing like any room we have been to in the southwest. We would highly recommend this room if you are in the area, it is great for beginners as well as more experienced teams.

After our game we had a chat with Dan who gave us a sneak peek in to his next room, we were completely in shock! The set of the room is remarkable and we are super excited to visit trapped escape rooms in the near future.
