We recently did Ramaseize as a group of 4 and it was absolutely brilliant! Benji was really helpful and made the experience great with his humor. Would definitely recommend this escape room and we can't wait to go back and try a different one!!

We chose the Dreamscape room because it looked so different to what we had done before. Great choice! Unique idea and quite challenging. I’d definitely recommend this room and Cryptology as a whole. Samuel (game master) was friendly and made the experience even more enjoyable....More

Cryptology has made one hell of a room, Dreamscape is awesome. Their newest room reimagines what an escape room can be and executes it amazingly. Our host gave us a brilliant introduction and looked after us throughout our experience delivering clues exactly when needed and...More

We have had children as young as 12 do the room by themselves, it has gone well. We ask that a responsible adult remains in the building with us, you can watch the game on the CCTV we use, or sit in our reception.
