The Chemist’s Conundrum
You are a group of the world’s top chemists, but your careers have ground to a halt.
Recently you’ve noticed a consistent stream of ground breaking research papers from a man known as Dr Vincent MacAlastair.
Intrigued, you applied to work alongside MacAlastair and successfully made it to the interview stage!
There’s only one issue… Dr MacAlastair is reportedly completely mad.
When you arrive at the interview you’re bustled into a room with the group you’re in now.
Dr MacAlastair says a few introductory words, and then excuses himself to go to the toilet.
As he exits you hear the slam of the door, a cry of “read the letter with a circle” and then silence disturbed only by a slight hissing.
Can you solve the puzzles left for you by Dr MacAlastair to escape the room in time and win the job?

We had fun doing this escape room. It was something different but interesting. It did get a bit difficult at times but the clues are helpful in a cryptic sort of way. It was our first time doing something like this and we'd definitely do it again.
We were really impressed with the variety of clever, lateral thinking puzzles, it was pitched just right to fill the allotted hour. Hints were helpful without giving too much away. The whole family enjoyed pitching in to solve the mystery!
Me and my friends attempted this mystery together. Definitely didn't pass the time frame but it was super fun
We played this escape game as a family and really enjoyed it. The puzzles weren't straightforward, but there were enough clues to get your teeth into what was needed. We were able to solve all but two of the puzzles and that was enough to crack the final answer. A well put together game and we enjoyed the theme having a background in chemistry - you don't need any special knowledge really! 🙂
Great fun! Quite tricky for us as we are not that quick off the mark, but very well structured. Lots of clues and answers so you never really get totally stuck.
