Recommendation: meh 4.8 / 5 from 45 reviews

Although, I am pleased with The LEGO Hidden Side Newbury Haunted High School as it meets my expectations as a Lego product. I am disappointed with its appearance when it arrived in the mail without a cardboard box. When I inspected the toy, there is damage to the box: a tear through the front of the Lego box, a visible crease on the side when something heavy (most likely) was placed on it and then, one of the sides opened was opened. Thankfully, everything is inside. This is an expensive purchase. The situation could have been avoided if it was sent with a cardboard box.

My doughtier got this set for Christmas. She really want this set and build it in one day. But then comes disappointment. Her phone (A1 Alpha phone) doesn't support Lego app. So I tried with my 4 years old phone - it works but after a while app blocks and you must exit the app. So it is definitely great set for physical game but not for as virtual game for every one.

Recommendation: meh 3 / 5 by Koen Van Der Hoeven

Although it is a standout set for its exterior, the interior fell short for me. Despite this, should I find another copy of this set on sale I will definitely look to pick it up to turn it into a modular set.

The compact nature of the set is both a good and bad point. I like that it doesn't take up loads of room or have random bits tacked on, but in the same breath, this also means the inside of the schools is light on space. However much of the things you'd find in a school are all present, albeit on a slightly cutback scale.

Recommendation: meh by CapnRex101

Hidden Side has proven exceptionally enjoyable and 70425 Newbury Haunted High School definitely maintains that high standard. The transformation functions are outstanding and I like the architectural design of this aging building, ensuring that it looks brilliant on display in both standard and possessed configurations. The internal detail is equally attractive but the limited upper level space has resulted in certain compromises.

Recommendation: meh by Dimitri

70425 Newbury Haunted High School is a fairly impressive and ambitious set. Transforming a large, well built school building into a giant monster couldn't have been an easy undertaking, but the LEGO design team have done a fantastic job. The school looks excellent and offers up a whole host of areas for play and transforming it into it's ghastly ghoulish state is not only fun but incredibly satisfying.

Recommendation: meh by Tim Johnson

All in all I like Newbury's Haunted High School. The build has a simple exterior that shines with good use of simple pieces and a pleasing colour scheme. Behind the walls lay clever features, which are not something for every AFOL I guess, but for me were interesting to build and fun to play with. Anyone who intends to get the set to modify it and make it part of their layout should keep in mind the missing back to this façade. Still, a good inspiration and a parts pack for recoloured pieces in practical tones for sure.
