    Great fun
    Went head to head with work colleagues, we all had a great time. The hour passed way to quick and both teams got to the same point as the time ran out. We were all locked back in to figure the final lock and thankfully we came out victorious 🏆 a really good evening had by all, would absolutely recommend.

    Can't wait to be back
    Amazing night! The room was very well put together and the host was really helpful when needed without giving away too much. Would definitely recommend. I look forward to going again some time to try out another room.

    Sherlock's Mysterious Manor
    The staff here are very welcoming and, after some formalties and a run through of what to expect, ... you're in! The room was a challenge at just the right level for us with plenty of different hints and clues to solve. We had a handy walki-talkie to use when we got stuck and were given just the right amount of help to carry on. Teamwork was the key to our success. There's a lot to this 'escape' and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The photo and write-up at the end rounded the whole 60 minutes off perfectly. Great fun.

    Fun group activity
    Visited with my arts group to have a go at the escape rooms, we were booked into the wild west rooms to compete against each other. The greeting and introductions from the staff was friendly and welcoming, and the room itself was enjoyable, some fun puzzles to work through. We almost got free but just ran out of time at the end. Seems to be a well run and thought out escape room, recommended as a group activity if you're looking for a fun booze free way to enjoy a few hours.

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!

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.

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!

5 of us visited here today, 3 adults and 2 children. We had never tried an escape room before and didn't really know what to expect. Helen was amazing, she talked a little about the rooms and answered any questions we had. Once in the room, Helen was at hand if we needed any help and she would type onto the screen extra clues. Unfortunately we didn't make it out in time but we throughly enjoyed trying. We will definitely be back to try and escape one of the other rooms. Thank you Helen.

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!
