    Definitely exercised our brain cells
    We had a great time, would definitely recommend to anyone that enjoys the thrill of an escape room. Wasn’t easy you do need to use your brain. Some of the clues where mind boggling but we managed to escape. Our hostess Hibah was brilliant. She welcomed us and explained the rules. Everything from start to finish was exceptional. We laughed we screamed and we succeeded. Thank you to all the team

    Excellent fun
    I treated myself for my birthday with my 2 sons (18 & 20). We did The Killer at Unit 38 Hollowell. It was my 2nd and my boys 1st escape room. Was a full fun hour with a good variety of puzzles that kept us laughing and panicking in good measure! Felt we were definitely going to run out of time but our lovely host Juliette was excellent at giving us hints if we got majorly stuck but without giving away any answers. I was delighted to find we escaped with 6 minutes to spare! Thank you Juliette for a really fun time.

    Will revisit! Amazing service and puzzles!
    The puzzles were very interesting and increasingly difficult at a perfect pace. But the host Tye can't be forgotten! Amazing service from him and made the experience enjoyable. The story was very intriguing and everything is bigger than it looks. Only issue was a problem with the doorbell but compared to our experience, it was nothing!

    An hour well spent! The Darkest Hour games was definitely a challenge for my friends and I, but we have a great time. Our host Hibah was so friendly, welcoming and helped to guide us through when we reached a tricky point. I would definitely recommend for as a fun afternoon!

We had so much fun, we went as a couple of escape room newbies to the breakout game and it was such a good time. Hon was lovely too. Highly recommend for 2 people, we were a bit worried about the Killer game being scary but it doesnt sound like it would be at all so will try that next!

We did a 6-player group for The Killer Escape Room, and it was so much fun! The room was well-designed, the puzzles were neither too hard nor too easy, and the slight physical aspect of it was welcomed. The fact that we could get hints on the screen when we got stuck was very helpful. Shoutout to Mathew for being such an awesome host!

The settings were very real, with a strong background story told by the hoster, and he was lovely while explanning all the rules of the house.
Medium difficulty with a variety of items to use.
In the facilities there is a toilet, and your belongings are with you the whole time, so nobody can access to them while you are inmerse on the experience.

On arrival we were briefed on the story and the object of the game. The game itself was immersive and good fun. We had four players - all adults - and needed some additional help here and there to push us in the right direction but this was provided without giving us outright answers.
We would definitely return to try the other escape room and continue the story. And we did make it out with just over 2 minutes to spare!

Great escape experience for novice escapees! Hiba friendly and helpful when we needed her. A fun filled hour thoroughly recommend going as a small group of friends.

Not the easiest venue to find and better directions would have been helpful, leave plenty of time to locate. Once we finally arrived hot and bothered it was a fantastic experience. Thank you Hiba.

Thank you so so much for the lovely words! We are so glad that you had a good time with Hibah. We understand that Google Maps likes to take people down the wrong street sometimes, but it never hurts to get a warm-up puzzle before the game begins ;)

I honestly couldn’t have asked for a better experience! Our host, Hibah, was awesome and explained the room really well prior to entering.
Communication with the team was also amazing - we had to amend our booking and that was no trouble at all.
Without giving anything away- the room was challenging but still great fun!
We had gone for the first event on my hen do weekend and it was a great starter activity to get us all working together and especially good to get friends bonding who had not met before.
Couldn’t recommend Enigma Escape enough!

Completed Breakout and The Killer and both were a fantastic experience. We booked Breakout first, and was so impressed by the host and the puzzles that we booked The Killer for the following day.

Highly recommend the rooms, and the great hosts were a bonus to the experience. Overall not the hardest puzzles, but still challenging to non-experienced escape artists.

Thank you so much! We are so glad you enjoyed both of our games, and hopefully we will get to host you again at some of our other locations. We would love to know the name of your hosts, if you remember, so that we can pass on the compliments?

Went there with my 16 yo godson. We chose the jail breakout escape room.

It is quite an elaborate escape room that will test your power of reasoning. We could have done with a third person - apparently, this is the ideal team size.

You have to break codes, think laterally.

We managed the game with a comfortable 13 seconds to spare!

Sam, our host, was very helpful and friendly. He is a consummate game master who know how to distillate just the minimal amount of pointers to make the game work for you without giving you too much.

Absolutely enjoyed this hour, it is great fun, more brain than brawn and a bit techie. Recommended!

We had an amazing time. It was our first time doing an escape room and Hon was a brilliant host, making us feel extremely welcome and very good at explaining the game to us.
We are planning to do the other room they have very soon!
Thank you Hon!!

David welcomed us and was a great host (one of the best I’ve encountered) There were three of us in our team to break our boss out of prison which we did with 90 minutes to spare. It was a good mix of logic and common sense. We will definitely go back to do the next one.
