We did Pharaoh's Anger - our first ever escape room. We finished it in just over 30 minutes, 10 of which we spent on a poorly executed and very frustrating "skill" puzzle. The puzzles were straightforward, and mostly involved putting things in the right order...More

Pharaoh’s Anger is slick! Having attempted numerous escape rooms, from various companies, it is fair to say that Pharaoh’s Anger is well thought-out, challenging and fun! As a pair, we found the room the right level of challenge, and were pleased to escape in a...More
