Perfect for the rainy day, today, but perfect in all weather to be honest. What a thrill! Loved every minute. Teen son in his element. Such a satisfying thwack when it hits the target! I would recommend this to anyone, and everyone. Staff very encouraging....More

I’ve never been to an escape room before and thoroughly enjoyed it. The puzzles and clues are well put together. Some of props are cheap but this doesn’t distract from the fun. We had a discount for booking online so the cost each was £16.50...More
