We have completed around 30 different escape rooms and this was by far the worst experience I have ever had. The guy running the show was incredibly rude telling us he wouldn’t be letting us out if we needed the loo, warnings if we misbehaved...More

I’ve been to quite a few escape rooms in the past couple of years. But this probably was one of the best experiences in the last couple of years. The room we were put in was the diamond project room, it was quite thrilling as...More

As others have said, the venue is a bit shabby. Not a problem in itself, but the lock for the penultimate puzzle was broken. So we had no chance of completing the room despite us explaining to the organiser that it was faulty. She agreed...More
