We went as a group of four for a friend’s birthday. It was fun, well-organised and thé décor and set up are great. We all got into the spirit of it and it was fun -great for team-building too, I would imagine.

A Shadow Darkens was brilliant fun. It was tricky but we did it without clues and in the last 5 seconds! Great host and a very unique experience. Highly recommended.
