First ever visit to an escape room and four of us attempted to crack the codes in the Ice Breaker room. Epic fail for us, we were close. If we'd asked for clues we'd have done it, but where's the fun in that- but still...More

Really enjoyed the ‘jungle’ theme room. Matt was a great host and really made the experience that added extra. You could really tell he loved his job. The room was clever and we loved the automatic triggered bits within it. Highly recommend.

6 of us went as a surprise for my daughters 30th birthday. Great laugh and a test of our thinking and problem solving. Did the jungle game, was a real test.

I went on a girls day out. We had a good time. We did the bamboozled room. It was confusing to start but once we had the hang of it there was no stopping us. We used a Groupon voucher. I would recomend.

We did two rooms here - ice breaker and fall out. We have done around 20 games in total so have to compare it to others. If it’s your first time, it would’ve probably been great. As more experienced players, the game was too simple...More

We’ve done quite a few escape rooms and this was our least favourite and one of the most expensive ones we’ve done (just two of us). Lots of parts of the room were quite worn and the theming could have been better.More
