We were so close to getting out and had a great time being almost there! If you don't get out, when it's explained to you you will slap yourself in the head something fierce. Bring your lateral thinking hats and try not to have too...More

The overall quality of the whole event is really quite disappointing. The room was in an office with some bed sheets and ikea furniture set up in a corner. Doesn't hold a candle to other escape rooms.

Having been to all the escape rooms in the local area now I feel that these escape rooms no longer live up to the standard others have now set. I can't help feel like the rooms look like a second hand furniture shop with clues...More
