    At the last moment


    It was a bit of a coincidence that we booked this room.

    But here we are... in a small town near Manchester. Well' we're still in isolation, nice and warm at home, which may reassure some people given the theme: THE EXORCIST.

    We all agree that when there's an exorcism, there's a demon! We played late last night, after another horror room, so everything is there to give us goose bumps, to make us jump at every noise and to make us turn around when we see strange shapes in the dark.

    And yet...


    We're going to be met by a reporter sitting quietly in his car, telling us about strange events at Crowley Manor. His cameraman is already there, he's going to join him and... you'd have guessed it. He's going to get stuck there. It's up to us to get him out of there... within an hour of course, after which time...

    Well, we're not going that way...


    Let's go to the movies.

    I really liked the fact that there are two people in the room: the reporter, but also the cameraman. For once it's really well filmed, you don't have your head spinning in all directions, nor blurred or badly framed images. The journalist, whom we'll call John (he knows why we shouldn't mention his real name), has a real talent for acting. He knows how to make us discover spaces with the naivity of the first discovery and the professionalism of a journalist who is stubbornly determined to teach us things about the spirits that are evoked here.

    For us it's really this "John", who is in truth the manager of the escape, with his dry sense of humour, that has amused us. He had a good sense of repartee, we were in a good mood and this room was fluid. We let ourselves be carried away by the room, the enigmas, "John", but above all the coherent film sequences that create a real story throughout the hour that you have available to escape.

    And then there is this unforgettable ending reminding us of a feeling that we have only had in one escape room in the Netherlands before.

    There is no inventory system here, but we won't miss it. The puzzles are complex enough to slow us down, but never too complex not to frustrate us.

    Every time I think back to this room I smile. We have great memories of it, but I can't tell you why. It's a whole, the group, John, the riddles, the room, the choice of narrative. It all fits!


    Message to John: We want more!

    + We enjoyed +

    •  "John"
    • The interaction
    • the scenaristic approach
    • The video sequences
    • The way in which the scary elements are presented without being ridiculous. (Fortunately, we were spared the GM's "Oh what's that noise, I'm scared!")

    - We didn't like -

    • Too many locks


    For who?

    • Pour les gens qui aiment avoir peur mais pas trop
    • Pour les amoureux de cinéma
    • Pour ceux qui aiment les évènements paranormaux

    Why play it?

    • Pour la manière dont la narration est amenée
    • Pour une expérience bien pensée
