The tour offers more sights than some other tours of the beautiful city of Newcastle. On it you will hear about the history of the city from the Iron Age to present day, and also about some of the city's more interesting characters.<br><br>The tour is less than 4km, does include some steps, and some uneven pavement.<br><br>Please come prepared according to the weather forecast for that day. <br><br>In the event of bad weather, please contact me through the message option here on TripAdvisor to see if the tour is still going ahead. Weather cancellations will be very rare.

Overall it was a good experience. Our game master was lovely and helpful. We managed to escape the Dungeon in 40 minutes and did not find it very challenging. I've done a few escape rooms now and this one was fine but does not really measure up to some of the others I've done. I think it could really benefit from having more effort put into the theming, there was no music playing to help the atmosphere and to say it's titled dungeon, this theme is very loose. I like it when we get a scenario to build the atmosphere before we go in but that didn't happen here. The game was also quite linear, 5 of us went in and as there was only ever one puzzle to do at a time there was always at least 3 people stood watching. It is much more exciting when there is more going on and this game could benefit from some extra elements. If you have never done an escape room before this might be a good one for a gentle introduction but if you've done several before I expect you will feel a little disappointed as I did.

Four of us visiting Newcastle for the first time booked to visit. The first challenge was even finding it as it is really ticked away! There are four rooms to get through in 60 minutes and it was a lot of fun. We think 4 people is enough for this personally as it can be testing if you are all shouting what to do! We loved the room with the lasers. Definitely worth a visit!

After going to a different escape room we decided to ring around and see if we could get another last minute one. The lovely lady who works here came back to work to open back up for us which we were very impressed with. She was really friendly and professional. The Escape Room was a decent size with different rooms coming off the one we started in and plenty of room for 6 of us. As the puzzles were quite tricky and we had to go back and forth it meant that we were all able to do something rather than some of us just being stood around. We could walkie talkie the staff to confirm pass codes and ask questions if we wanted to. One member of our team accidentally opened a lock by just fiddling round with different combinations which was a shame but not the company’s fault! One improvement I would suggest is that they could try and make it look more like a dungeon as it just looked like normal rooms with a few bits of decoration thrown in and black sheets at the windows. However, you are so involved in the game that you kind of forget about your surroundings, it would help with the atmosphere though. We definitely want to come back and try the Magic Castle room next time.

The clues are good and how they link to each other are great, the person running the event was a lovely lady and had patience for a lot of daft questions and a group of hyper kidults- but then it goes downhill very quickly, the actual rooms are not at all inspiring and don’t set the right tone or mood for an “escape”. Escape rooms are very popular now and this set up just looks like they have jumped on the bandwagon to make some money- please spend your money with an escape room experience that have made an effort to set the scene- throughout this visit you just know you are in an accountants office with a couple of dividing panels thrown up quickly. Spend your hard earned money on a better experience.

Me and 4 others visited here for a friend's birthday. With not doing an escape room before we were unsure on what to expect but we were pleasantly surprised! We honestly thought that we would be too stupid to even complete the game but we managed to get out with 1 second to spare. We did the Magic Castle game with the laser room and it was great. The lady who looked after us on the day was great (sorry I didn't catch your name!) and the walkie talkie system and the clipboard board and pen was really useful and appreciated it. Would definitely recommend to anyone!
