The room was really well thought out and you could really feel that a lot of effort had been put into making the room. Also, nice that you have 90 minutes instead of 60, in case you run over time!

Ctrl Alt Esc are a credit to the escape room industry - they have clearly put effort into trying something different and it has really paid off. Their game features no padlocks which makes for a more realistic experience, is heavily technology based, which allows...More
