We were a group of five, and there were five other folks in our escape room adventure. We have done quite a few escape rooms, and found this one to be set up very well to work for a comparatively large group of people who don’t necessarily know each other. It was a good challenge, not too easy. The hints provided by the agent in charge of the case were generally helpful nudges in the right direction rather than complete reveals, although they were unsolicited, which is not our usual preference. It was a good experience, well designed, and we would definitely explore the other escape offerings in this series if our Fringe calendar were not already filled to overflowing! Five stars, well done.

I love escape rooms, this was hugely disappointing and over priced. However, this has become one of our fave events so far because it was so bad it was funny.
If this is your first escape room, don't be put off, there are some excellent ones out there!

Went with a group. I've only done one escape room before this, but was able to work on the puzzles and solve some of them with my friends. We ran out of time, but it was still pretty fun.

Honestly was a bit underwhelmed by this - though I have to be fair and say it's quite difficult to set up an indoor escape room for the Fringe, a thing that's naturally ephemeral - so the room can't be utilized and thematic like any permanent escape room. Felt too pricey for what we experienced, there was too many other people (8 others doing the same shared thing) in our session so we ended up only doing 1 puzzle out of maybe 10 without fully feeling any coherent story or experience. Staff are really nice though.

This was a great escape room with good variety in the puzzles and lots of parallel tracks so you always have something to work on. The murder mystery part of it was a little meh, but the puzzle part was great.

Bringing something entirely new and unique to the fringe, Agent November combines immersive theatre with your classic escape room format. Providing a great combination of puzzles, logic and murder mystery, you’ll need to bring your thinking caps for this one!

This was a delight. We're reasonable escape room people: the timing here gave us pretty much EXACTLY the right amount of time, as part of a group of 5 folks (thanks to our teammates who were great!). Puzzles were all 'work out code, open lock' but varied and clean; the overall mystery had a logical conclusion that worked well; and the acting was good as were the props. Recommended.
