This was one of the best escape game locations in the country, without a doubt. It's a real shame they've now closed, but I'm excited to see what they move onto next.

Really superb escape room, both kids loved it (as did us adults) - especially teenager who is incredibly hard to please! Loved all the interactive elements, what a shame you are closing. Hope you find a new venue and will definitely visit again.

A good concept. Well organised to book and clear instructions beforehand and on arrival. Staff all very prepared and enthusiastic. Price not cheap but probably average. We did the celestial chain, easier to book and more slots available. Overall we needed about 90 mins including...More
