Mythologic Escape Rooms are based just off Gillingham High Street, in an upstairs unit above some retail outlets. With a blacked out front door, with some cool graphic design explaining what to expect inside, and large Mythologic sign, the unassuming building houses two escape rooms which really pack a punch.  

Greeted at the door by the owners/designers Michelle and Chris, the welcome could not have been warmer. Escorted upstairs to the small yet practical reception area, we are offered a comfortable seat and lock away our belongings. Water is readily available and there is well appointed lavatory area (which also has a number of essential personal hygiene products, such as deodorants etc. which is a lovely personal touch) 

A briefing commences within the reception area and the disclaimers are all signed on digital tablets (which makes the hassle of pens and paper disclaimers feel like a distant nightmare)!

 

It is clearly evident from chatting to the owners that they are passionate about their rooms and obviously their customer service, which was faultless. We were made to feel at home with their personal yet professional touch.  

Currently, Mythologic have two rooms;

1) The Game- A Jumanji themed game, where you have return "The Jaguars Eye" to the game before being sucked into it forever

2) Hypnos - A hypnotic serial killer has captured you, and you have to escape before he returns

In addition, they are also developing a live actor horror game, based on the IT clown film franchises, which they have entitled Penn13wise,  which promises to be a real scream!

I have had the pleasure both of their current rooms;  

THE GAME

A you a fan of the Jumanji films? Who isn't?! Whether its Robin Williams of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, these films have been massively successful - and this escape room is destined to be a huge success too. 

Creativity is an understatement - this room has been carefully crafted and takes in some key elements from both films and works it into a well thought out experience which can be loved by all members of the family, young and old.  Attention to detail is second to none and as you continue through the room, you will be blown away.  

The room contains a number of puzzles and riddles that many of the team hadn't seen before and this is a real plus. The room houses a great mix of different styles including physical games, riddles, padlocks and electronic games. 

This is certainly a room where paying attention is key - communicate with your team and listen closely to the what you see and hear. Don't be lulled into a false sense of comfort in this room and the time ticks away quicker than you think. This is certainly a room that the team and I will not be forgetting in a hurry - for a great hours worth of entertainment, this is sure to be a real family favourite. 

Would I recommend this room?

For sure! A great theme and a strong combination of puzzles make this a sure fire hit!

Who would I recommend it to? 

Anyone! Great for beginners through to experienced escapists, it will get the escape room juices flowing

 

How many players would I recommend?

Around 4-5, taking into consideration the size of the room and number of puzzles inside

HYPNOS

Captured by a sadistic, hypnotic serial killer, you find yourself locked away and have an hour to escape before he returns! Sounds like a fun way to spend 60 minutes! And believe me, it is!

The one word I would suggest to sum up this room is PRESSURE! The design, theme and effects in this room all add up to build a brilliant sense of tension - it is possibly the only room we have done where we did start to argue with each other about the answers to some games! You certainly feel the sense of urgency in this room. 

The puzzles are clever and varied, with a large variety of electronic, physical and padlock based games and three particularly frustrating games during your final escape! Again, a number of games the team hadn't seen before which certainly kept us on our toes. 

The room is well thought out, with a few slightly creepy features (but nothing too scary!) The start and end of the game are like nothing we have done before.  Every puzzle sticks strictly to the theme and it is evident the designers have focused a lot of effort into perfecting this room. A great all-rounder for us!

Would I recommend this room?

Yes! A slightly trickier room, but great use of technology and traditional escape games make this a must.

Who would I recommend it to? 

Players that have played a few rooms before however aren't hugely experienced

 

How many players would I recommend?

Around 4-5, taking into consideration the size of the room and number of puzzles inside

Suitable for Children?

Yes however probably over 12's. The theme is the thing that makes this slightly scarier and a handful of the puzzles are tricky, however once settled in, all is fine!
