Our family had fun with the Houdini and Baker Street rooms. The hosts are welcoming and really went the extra mile to accommodate the varied crowd i.e. infant, toddlers and adults. We will definitely be back as new rooms are opened.

Two families of three joined forces to work through the clues and escape the room. We chose the Baker Street room and had great fun working together using communication to get the quickest solutions. It was an hour well spent
