Jet2Space was as detailed as it was hilarious. This unique, raunchy space comedy had great décor and game flow, punctuated by funny moments and collaborative gameplay.
Gameplay was pure fun and was loaded with multiple communication puzzles that kept both players engaged. With each interaction, Clue Adventures designed a game for exactly 2 players.
Every bit of the space, including many unexpected items, had so many innuendos present; we were giggling at each and every silly joke. The raunchy humor was the star of the game, and well worth using a few extra minutes of your time to enjoy. So much of the game’s content and interactions were memorable.
The runbook in Jet2Space was cumbersome and potentially unnecessary, especially given how detailed the space was. While the hint system worked fine this way, it could have been more fully integrated into the space.
Clue Adventures made a fantastic decision to design a spaceship game in a tiny space, allowing for players to feel like they were in a small spaceship with slightly claustrophobic areas. If you are a team of 2, and only 2, this is well worth the tube ride.
Who is this for?
- Adventure seekers
- Puzzle lovers
- Scenery snobs
- Cheeky lads
- Any experience level
- Duo teams
- Hilarious innuendos in every interaction
- Exciting and collaborative puzzling
We were on the prowl for a cheap vacation to Mars and came across WheezyJet. Upon boarding the spacecraft, it became apparent that they’d cut every corner possible and our relaxing vacation would not get off without problems.
Jet2Space was set in the cabin of a spaceship, equipped with flight safety cards, food carts, a small space toilet, uncomfortable spacecraft seats, and a plethora of hilarious suggestive content. The decoration was sleek with orange and grey tech-inspired walls and looked just like the inside of a janky spaceship.
Clue Adventures’ Jet2Space was a standard escape room designed for 2 players with a moderate level of difficulty.
Core gameplay revolved of searching, making connections, communicating, and puzzling.
➕ Every bit of the game was chock full of innuendos and nudges to raunchy humor. Our team spent a considerable amount of time giggling at the plethora of jokes scattered throughout.
➕ Jet2Space contained a mid-game puzzle that had us moving about. The tech implemented in this interaction was fantastic and provided a challenge with progressive discovery elements.
➖ One small interface was seemingly interactive, yet was set on a timer. If you looked at this interface at the wrong time, the clue would not be displayed. We wished this interface either could be interacted with or would always display pertinent information up front.
➕ Clue Adventures used the 2-player model to their advantage and designed multiple layered collaboration puzzles, forcing both players to be actively engaged at all times to succeed.
➖ A tablet felt like an unnecessary runbook to carry around. It included a timer, directions leading us to the next puzzle, and self-service hints. The tablet interface felt clunky and a bit confusing at first. Once we understood it, it worked fine, but there was an opportunity to integrate this more cohesively.
➕ The cramped floorplan of Jet2Space lent itself well to the layout of a spaceship. The areas felt small and confined, as they would on a real ship. Designing around this layout was a fantastic choice.
Tips For Visiting
- Clue Adventures is set above the Coach and Horse Pub. Head inside and let the bartender know you’re there, and the gamemaster will come down to guide you to the gamespace.
- There is some street parking, but we recommend taking the Central Line to Leyton.
Book your hour with Clue Adventures’ Jet2Space, and tell them that the Room Escape Artist sent you.
