This was such fun. I had never been to an Escape room before. It was exciting and challenging. A great way to spend an hour.

Loved doing this. It was my first one. Very friendly welcome and very well thought out escape game. We were in Shadwell in East London. Don't be fooled, from outside it doesn't look much but the room that we had to escape from was superbly...More

Hello, Thank you for your honest feedback. We appreciate that in our quest to always strive for the best atmosphere inside the room, some teams may struggle with lighting. Usually this is not the case as game masters have warned them beforehand about marks on...More

We made the pirate’s room. It was really good but we were a team of two players and it was a bit difficult for us. So I think that the game was really good but I would recommend to be more than two players.More

Hi John, Thanks for leaving us a such a positive review! It was great for us to host you guys, and completing one game is already challenging enough but to take on 3 in a day was certainly pushing the limits of the mind. However,...More

We really enjoyed ourselves. The staff were very welcoming and the rooms well set out. Quite hard, but we are not experienced escape room folk. We needed clues along the way, but that was more fun than not ever getting it worked out.More
