This was one of the best escape game locations in the country, without a doubt. It's a real shame they've now closed, but I'm excited to see what they move onto next.

Really superb escape room, both kids loved it (as did us adults) - especially teenager who is incredibly hard to please! Loved all the interactive elements, what a shame you are closing. Hope you find a new venue and will definitely visit again.

i realise this is an old thread, but for anyone else looking for an answer to this question, let me give you an emphatic one. Lance of Longinus is great. The celestial chain is abysmal!!!
