We were on holiday nearby and wanted something different to do. We'd never tried an escape room but had heard about them and thought it would be fun to give it a go with our oldest (adult) daughter. We checked the location (there are two...More

Computer kept over heating and game would crash. Unable to play game and complete the tasks. Hugely disappointing

Tried an escape room for the first time. We chose a difficult one as our first one, wich probably wasn't the smartest thing. We had a lot of fun, but needed å couple of hints to get out. Highly recommended.

Really enjoyed this escape room, very different to what I’ve experienced before and lasts longer than an hour so more entertainment for the price. The staff are really friendly and informative. Highly recommend and looking to doing more rooms.

Hi Chloe, We have two options of games on VR, one is called Cosmos and another one is called Mind Horror. Cosmos is definitely not a scary one, I can assure you that. Kind regards, The Lockey team

This room I believe is £24 for adults and £16 for children. It’s in my opinion the best one. So interactive. I think they give discount if you do a second room on the same day. Hope that helps.

This response is quite late but there are no live actors the games are built on the atmosphere rather than anyone jumping out and scaring you.
