My partner and I played Phobia and had the best time! It was scary as well as challenging, and our games master Mo was great and enjoyed our reactions (!). Thanks so much for a brilliant hour (and we escaped with 2 minutes to go!)....More

I cannot recommend the Asylum room, and as a result of my experience I cannot recommend Escape Asylum at all. The room is an appalling mess, reliant on cheap ‘scares’ and only a scant handful of puzzles. I won’t resort to spoilers, but when the...More
