The first half an hour of the experience was truly amazing and really scary! We absolutely loved the start! However, the further into the experience we got the less scared we were. This didn’t help by all six of us hearing the actors talking in...More

Kelstar we're most thrilled we exceeded your expectations, thanks so much for sharing that with us. You're right to advise how dark it is and definitely you don't want your Sunday Best on - Can you recommend any good cleaners...?

Reviewed 18 November 2018 via mobile

There should definitely be more escape rooms like this. It's a step above other escape rooms and gives you a reason to escape, rather than the general just look for clues for the hell of it.

It was one of the best escape games I have done. Scary but not too much. The puzzles took a bit of teamwork but it was not super difficult. If they make a new one I would definitely go again

And we'd most like to have you back again, who knows, PigFace may try a little harder next time to ensure you don't escape. Hope you're sleeping with the light off now...?

We went as a group of 4 and were divided, but never alone. The actors do not intentionally touch you.
