Done both rooms at Deadlocked. Narrowly missed out on The Phoenix Research but smashed Testing Chamber! (May have something to do with who was on my team...) Recommend to all!

The Phoenix Research Room Lovely welcome, good instructions before we entered the room. Great fun and we solved the puzzles as a team with less than a minute to go. Room was well designed in the theme.
