We had a really good time doing Dr Ryddle at The Real Escape. It was a fun experience and Courtney our Gamesmaster was welcoming from the start. She talked us through what would happen and gave us hints on a screen when she thought we needed a little nudge. There were 7 of us in total and the 3 teens ranged from 14 to 17. Nobody was bored and nobody moaned. There was plenty to look at in the room and solving the mystery meant working together with our ideas and gathering items from the room so it was a real hands on experience. I would definately recommend The Real Escape. Thankyou.

Had a great time at The Real Escape. Did the Chamber of the Deep and only just missed the leaderboard! The group ranging from 15-18 and then some adults too had a great time and for some it was their first escape room so was awesome!

I have done a few all around and this was a good room with some good puzzles and a good set.

Julia was great, explained everything really well and provided a couple of clues at key moments which helped a lot.

Overall a great experience. Definitely want to try another of the rooms soon.

We've been to this escape room a few times, there's always a friendly greeting on arrival, everything is explained clearly.
If you haven't been I would highly recommend you do.
You'll never get tired of being locked in a room

Really like the flow of Dr Ryddle’s memories. Yes it does all stay in one room but the puzzles were solvable and you constantly felt you were getting somewhere.

Only slight downside was that from the outside it looked closed and when we pressed the intercom there was too much road noise to hear what was said. Maybe just let people in and then talk to them when they get inside.

We loved the challenges and the need to work together to solve the clues. The time limit wasn't too pressurising but kept you moving. The hints were well timed and appropriate - very helpful without giving too much away. It was great fun and we are all looking forward to doing another one.

Had to come back to The Real Escape to try out their new room, The Western Job. It was brilliant. A good range of puzzles that really require your team to work as a group to solve them. The aesthetic was great too! You can tell a lot of love has gone into this room. Our games master Reece was lovely too. He was really welcoming and only gave us hints when we needed a little nudge. I would really recommend The Real Escape to anyone wanting to try out escape rooms!

We had a great time in the Western Job room. There was only two of us doing it and Reece was brilliant and only intervened when we really needed it. The room had a good mixture of puzzles and flowed well. I liked the fact that if you are super quick (we weren’t!) you could take on an additional challenge for more ‘loot’. This was our first time at this venue, but we were very impressed so will definitely be back.

So much fun! We escaped our room with only 90 seconds to spare, but not one of our team attempted to murder another member, so I'm classing it as a massive win. Our GamesMaster, Iris, was brilliant. She explained everything clearly, was there with helpful hints when needed, and was just absolutely lovely :-)

Brilliant mornings entertainment at the Escape Room - Chamber of the Deep.
Reece was very informative and set us up for the challenges ahead.
The time went by so fast.
Whole experience was enjoyable and would definitely recommend to anyone young or old if you all work together as a team.
Looking forward to the next experience.

We arrived early and were met with a friendly welcome and allowed to start early. Erin was excellent, clearly very enthusiastic about her job and was a fantastic host. The rooms were really well set up and they really made you use your brain. A good laugh was had by all and we would thoroughly recommend it to anyone
