We did the Silence is a Virtue. Great family fun and we did it with 16 mins to spare. We will do another one around Christmas when the kids are back from Uni; looking forward to it.

This was our 2nd ever room after the bug had bit. Great staff, amazing set up/decor etc and really challenging room. The whole atmosphere was perfect from start to finish. Couldn't have asked more from the time spent there
