Escape room was great. TARJA looked after us. 3 adults and 1 boy of 9. Would be difficult with less people. Lots of different puzzles and well structured timewise. The hour flies by and we all had a great time.

This was my second escape room, and it was just as much fun- our group of teenagers really enjoyed the challenges and would certainly do another one.

Great family team fun in a lovely historic setting. Well worth a visit. Puzzles challenging enough to keep you interested but not so hard that you get frustrated. Friendly staff, great atmosphere, and educational to boot!

Although I’ve maintained my escape room record of 100% failures with our recent visit - we still had a brilliant time! Beats spending an evening in front of the tv and encourages you to think differently. We did the Merchants Vaults game and it was...More

Great fun, we were a group of 6 across 3 generations. We all enjoyed getting the little grey cells working and being a team. Cannot wait to solve one of their other mystery games. It was an hour well spent and all became involved, including...More
