This impressively ambitious escape game is the first I've tried where your team is immediately divided. Given the game we played was called 'The Penintentiary' we should have seen it coming, but being locked into prison cells is a surprising and suitably fun way to kick off our time in the warren of rooms it was our task to escape from. Having more than one room (there's even a flight of stairs involved) meant there was a fair bit of yelling instructions at each other through walls, which only added to the urgency of the situation, and the clues were spread far and wide across the set, adding an extra dose of satisfaction when you work out what solves what. The rooms aren't beautiful but the theming is strong, and the puzzles unusual. And this could be as close as you'll get to a real-life prison break. Ashleigh Arnott
