    Lots of fun at Hashtag Escape!
    My husband and I have visited Hashtag Escape twice in the past month and had a great time! First for Closure and second for Red Moon. The 'game masters' were very understanding when we were late the second time that we went and even though we were only a team of two they still allowed us to do a four person room, which we appreciated. The rooms are clean and the puzzles are challenging enough to make you think but still keeping it fun. The story lines of each room have also been intriguing and different from other escape rooms that we have done in the past. We will definitely be back when we add more members to our team to do the more difficult rooms! ;)

    Great team building time!
    Such a fun and engaging experience. We went there for a work team building event. The rooms were fantastic and Chris the owner and manager was great to work with. His Service and responsiveness while planning and booking was impeccable. Everyone enjoyed the escape rooms and it really brought team work to the fore. Problem solving to another level! Afterwards everyone could not stop speaking about the experience! Well done to Chris and his team. We will definitely be back.

    Five stars is not enough!
    I would give this experiences ten stars if I could. Abigail was so kind, patient and funny. Definitely one of my favourite experiences & I can’t stop raving about it to anyone and everyone who will listen. The escape room itself was scary, exciting, the right amount of challenging and so much fun. My friends and I are already there planning for the next one.

    Unlocking a murder mystery while trying to unlock ourselves!
    What fun it was, and how we got to see a different side to people we thought we knew :) We fall into an over fifties age group, and I am so glad m son persuaded us it was exactly the right thing, even for 'oldies'. The rooms were well designed, the clues challenging but doable, and the game leader was so friendly, fun and helpful. Next time we will beat the clock. We came close enough to make us confident.

    One of the best escape room experiences
    What a wonderful experience. We did the red moon with hashtag escape room. The clues were well designed and very carefully thought out. There were many brilliant touches and quite high tech. The staff was great and offered much support throughout the session. Wiĺ definitely return and do one of the other rooms.

    10 / 10 experience.
    Fantastic experience, the game master Angela was excellent giving out instructions. The set up makes you feel as if you in the actual scene. This is a good activity to also get to know how your partner thinks as well.

    Fun and challenging escape room experience
    We had a great time at Hashtag Escape Room. Our host Mike was friendly and provided a good introduction to the rules and how everything worked. Good use of props and sound effects in the room, and puzzles were fun, unique and sufficiently challenging.

    We had a fantastic time in our room; it was truly intriguing. While we did have a couple of scares that led to screams and even a tumble, it only added to the excitement. We particularly relished solving the mysteries presented to us. Without a doubt, we'll be returning to explore the wonders hidden in the other rooms. Our heartfelt thanks go out to the exceptional staff members whose efforts made our experience even more enjoyable. I highly recommend this experience to others.

The guides were very friendly and helpful. The prison break room was extremely challenging - we'd recommend using some friendly hint to escape on time! Great activity for a fun family experience
