Lake Escapes – Quest for the Throne.
Location: Workington
Game Date 10/06/2017.
Team: Amy & Ian


“You are the elder sibling born into a Royal family. It was your birthright to inherit the throne upon the King’s death, but an evil secret plan executed by your younger brother and some corrupt castle guards has left you exiled from the kingdom. The corrupt guards were given strict orders to kill you if you ever returned to the castle.”

The room, again was gorgeous with an impressive wow factor the moment the door was opened. The attention to detail was wonderful, with plush red swathes of fabric adorning the walls an trimming the furniture, it was “fit for a king!” – with enough decor to create a fully realised space but without creating red herrings
The immersion again was good, another lovely setting to spend an hour! There is clearly a lot of love and care that has gone into the fabrication of the rooms at Lakes Escapes, this is evident in the quality of the rooms.

Game Play:
Another perfectly linear game, with a wide range of puzzles, word, math, code-breaking, skill, physical. This game had them all.
Each puzzle was perfectly solvable, and had great Ah-ha moments, the flow was wonderful in this room.
The linearity really helps the flow and lets you know exactly where you’re heading to next, with all the pieces of the games coming together at the exact right time, it was a ver satisfying room to play!
The puzzles were all clever, and as there are so many different types of puzzle each player will get their chance to shine. A very well rounded game.
Experienced players will enjoy this game in a small group, newbies… take a bigger team 4-5 and enjoy all the puzzles this room has to offer!

Game Host:
Carol and John were our game hosts (and also owners of Lakes Escapes) and they couldn’t have been lovelier, so very warm and welcoming and willing to chat to us, John delivered the brief and story of the game with ease. It’s clear they love hosting the games!
Carol ran our game, and again was impeccable in her clue delivery!

Did we escape?
Yes, with 7 minutes remaining, getting us to the top of the leader-board! (at the time of writing!)
