We've been to several escape rooms over the years, but still really enjoyed the challenge of Haunted! We opted for this as something fun to do over Halloween weekend and we weren't disappointed.

There are so many riddles and puzzles to solve! You think you've found everything in the room then a creepy recording is set playing by the staff and you realise you forgot something! lol

Although we made it out, we had a LOT of help from the staff. I'm still kicking myself about one of the obvious puzzles that we just could not figure out!

Located on the outside of the shopping mall - you cannot access from inside the shopping centre. We paid £60 for 4 persons, so think good value at £15 each for such a fun hour.

All the staff were friendly and helpful. We found Haunted to be very challenging, but so much fun! We will return to try out one of the other escape rooms.

Had an amazing experience in the haunted room. It was exciting, a little creepy, full on and the hour past far too quickly (hence we didn't make it out in time) but we had so much fun trying. Amy was amazing, she gives subtle clues only if you're really stuck and ask for it. Would definitely recommend going and we will go again and try a different room :)

My fiancé and I absolutely love escape rooms, and having not done one in a while, thought we would do one here as haven’t been to many local ones recently and tend to travel to Newcastle/Leeds for them. We did the Haunted Room. The general lay out of the room is brilliant and a lot of challenges. Unfortunately one of the padlocks had been left open from the previous team and we then found something to communicate at the end wasn’t working properly due to a flick not being switched which delayed us. They did give an extra 5 minutes but we did leave feeling a bit deflated.

The idea was good and great team building exercise however the last clue to. The lock was impossible and even when explained at the end we would never thought what to to do do what was explained what's required. As a group you were disappointed that we we're unable to enter any other rooms to have the full experience of what it would have been like even if we had not been able to spend time in there are. The staff were helpful but still came away disappointed as a group and would not do it again.

As a group of seasoned escape room enthusiasts, the rooms and clues were good.
We managed to escape two of the three rooms at the Middlesbrough location. And enjoyed racing against each other in the Cabin rooms but did need a extra 5 minutes at the end to get out.

HOWEVER the chalk boards given were incredibly difficult to use and caused more problems then being helpful. A simple pencil/pen and paper would be easier to use or maybe a etch-a-sketch type device.

The building and rooms were also freezing cold which did affect our performance in the rooms as we could barely open locks as our hands were so cold. There didn't seem to be any heating in any room or any hot water in the toilets.
I'm not sure if there was a issue as when mentioned to the workers they just agreed it was very cold and nothing else.

The building and waiting area is tired and needs some TLC for a more inviting environment to customers. Again there looked to be some flood damage, which again I'm not sure if it was caused by the recent storm or whether its always like that.

Overall the escape rooms were good when we were in them but the outside/waiting areas weren't inviting and would put me off going back if there were more rooms to do.

We tried the Empty Cabin and Haunted Hospital and managed to escape both, I would highly recommend the Haunted Hospital even though I scare easily as the whole theme and puzzles were well thought out. The staff were very professional and friendly and had taken a great amount of effort in making the venue safe as everything was disinfected, hand sanitiser was available and plenty of open windows for fresh air. Our host James was very informative and made us feel relaxed so we were able to enjoy ourselves. I will look forward to returning soon!

We went yesterday and had great fun!
It was all very hygienic, hand sanitiser was available, and everything was clean. A very safe place to go if you're concerned about social distancing.
We completed the cabin and haunted hospital, both were excellent, haunted hospital was scary.
The place itself had a great atmosphere and James our host was brilliant, he explained all the rules and was observing the whole time, giving clues if needed and answering questions instantly if asked.
Its definitely worth doing 2 rooms if you go as they're so much fun, if you can only do one I recommend the haunted hospital. We'll definitely be coming back to conquer more!

Visited a couple of times and have done a few different rooms. All the rooms are really good with clever clues. The staff are friendly and are there to help if you need it. They are constantly changing the rooms so there’s always something new.

Trying to find something to with both small children, teenagers and adults on a hen do is challenging! When I e mailed Project Escape to see if they could accommodate us they couldn’t have done any more to help if they’d tried! My 7 year old loved it... as did everyone else! We did The Cabin... a medium level and loved it! Charlotte guides us through when needed and was fabulous! What a fab place with fab people and fab rooms! Thank you! Worth the drive to come back!

Had a good time here trying to escape the Sherlock room. Unfortunately, we failed but staff very friendly and helped us with hints and tips when asked. Would recommend but with a larger group or a different room if you are a beginner!
