'Escape the Vault' is a fantastic experience that keeps you on the edge. It may only be 40 minutes long, but that doesn't matter, because it's still an absolute thrill. The puzzles are very well designed and thought out - make sure you assemble a...More

Thank you for your lovely review :) It is always great to see when experienced players such as yourselves have fun in the Vault and break out in record time too! Good luck with all your future heists and break out missions :) Thanks again.

This was my second time doing this escape room but with a different group of people, and I thought maybe I wouldn't be as fun because I already knew some of it, but actually, it was still great as I'd forgotten so much since last...More

Very remotely managed and not reset after previous competitors. Some of the locks were stuck. We completed about 2 out of 10 tasks and not locked in at all, just as well because no-one there to let us out.More
