Turned up to do our booked and paid for room escape last Saturday and the place was deserted, no sign of a business there or anyone answering the phone/entrance buzzer. No response to multiple phone calls or emails since. Now we are £60 down and...More

Even though we failed to get out of our room, this was great fun. We were in the physical room and had to find numbers and codes to escape, I would go again.

This place had been highly recommended by a friend as a 'must do', so we thought we'd give it a try. We were warmly greeted by the owner and shown into the room we had booked. The 7 3/8 room was challenging, lots of puzzles...More

This was my first ever escape room and it was amazing, the thought that has gone into these rooms is very clever and is challenging but fun! We all loved how the staff would personalize hints for us by giving us nicknames! It was a...More

Pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed this. Tried the platform 7 3/8ths and it was really good, made it out with 90 seconds left! Definitely worth a visit, I will be going back to try the other rooms!

We went into Platform 7 3/8 and Jailbreak. Both rooms were challenging but not too hard and the staff were on hand to give you clues when you got stuck. Both of us escaped (but one of us only just!) The rooms had lots of...More

We had a great time at roomquest. I didn't know what to expect. We went as a group of 5 and thoroughly enjoyed. I'd definitely recommend. Lots of fun... but don't get tipsy before you go... like I did!

Roomsquest Chester have 3 rooms to try (we have done 2 of them!) The games vary thematically and in game style, with "Platform 7 3/8s" being a linear game and "Jailbreak" being a totally non-linear game. There is a lot to do in each room...More

Had a brilliant time trying to escape the room, laugh a minute which was just as well because we failed! Great clues and tips when needed and an excellent host. Will definitely go again, a nice way to pass a couple of hours in Chester.

They work on 2 different types of challenges, I would recommend the Safe Haven for an "easier" challenge, completely dependent on the individuals doing the room. You won't know until you try :)

If you go on Groupon you can get it for £38 I think for 5 persons. although this is only mid-week bookings and not weekend.
