The Cutting Room – Locked In Edinburgh

THEME: 20 years ago five murder victims were found, all twenty something males with an internal organ missing but replaced by a primitive replica. Just as swiftly as they had started the murders stopped. The police never found out who was behind it all and eventually gave up the case after years of searching. But last night there was an unexpected development in the case, 5 new victims. we don’t know why he’s back, why he’s taking organs but let’s be clear. If we don’t find the missing organs in the next hour 5 men will die. We’re counting on you.

ROOM: As with all the rooms at Locked In, the theming was great and the clue system fit in seamlessly with the room. We got stuck in and found some lovely, unique puzzles. Many of their puzzles we haven’t seen before and they are such simple ideas but such good puzzles which are so satisfying when solved. There was so much to do in the room we were both busy throughout the game. The story progressed well with a combination of linear puzzles and things we knew we needed to do to complete the game. Locked in are very skilled at creating puzzle packed games with great themes and unique puzzles. The owners are lovely, with a genuine enthusiasm for escape rooms and hung around and talked to us about all things escaping for ages. It was a pleasure to visit these rooms, we can see why they are so highly recommended – a must for any enthusiast!

ESCAPE TIME: 58 minutes with very few clues!

LEVEL: It would probably benefit a team to have a bit of experience before trying this room. If you are new to escaping take a big team.
