The white breezeblock building this three-game operation is set in doesn’t exactly scream ‘fiendish magnificence’. But there’s a trio of surprisingly well thought out games here, at least one of which has an astonishingly good mid-game twist (we could be clearer, but trust us: you don’t want the surprise ruined). Action’s much more orientated around searching than wrestling with MENSA-like puzzles, so is a good intro to the escape game beginner. The three rooms involve a science-themed one where you have to stop the planet from being plunged into eternal darkness; one where you scrabble around a vintage study trying to find your grandad’s last will before the coppers turn up and arrest you for trespassing (even though you’re in your own relative’s house - the bastards); and one where you don a black mask and frantically try to crack sophisticated lock mechanisms to bust into a vault and rescue some priceless treasures before they’re stolen by a man called Mr Bad (we’re guessing he’s not an altruist). Lock'd probably best suits players who are newer to the concept of escape games more than hardened vets, but there’s a lot to enjoy here for all challengers.

I was a little disappointed with this escape room. While the actual games were quite well thought out and clever, it wasn't overly professionally run, and the venue was poorly signed and difficult to find. We went on a Friday night but on reflection, I think escape rooms in general are better suited to a weeknight or a daytime event.
