It was a great family experience! We had ages from 11-54 and they all enjoyed it. It was an interactive activity, where everyone got to different things. Would recommend this experience and would be keen to go again and try another room!

For those who enjoy wizarding themes, this is the one for you! A thoroughly enjoyable escape room with a touch of Harry Potterish-ness about it! Some challenging puzzles that required different senses to conquer. Happy to now be a member of the Academy!

Fortunate enough to have attended the Enchanted Academy last night. Our session was run by Holly, who appeared to be the life of the party. Her professional but light hearted relationship with Isaac was the icing on the top of the whole experience. We’re a...More

A great time had in the FBI room with all 4 of us adding to the solving of the clues. Not too easy and you have to think outside the square

Hi Rhonda, thanks for the review. So glad you enjoyed our FBI room- we like to have that balance of puzzles so the rooms aren't too easy or too hard and are enjoyable for everyone! Hope to see you back in soon.

Inspires thinking outside the box and rewards clever ideas. Definitely worth a go with a few friends - I would recommend trying multiple rooms too as the experience is different in each one. Very rewarding new experience if you have a sense of adventure.
