Hardest Room
Oct 2020 • Couples
We recently played Lightning in a Bottle. It’s an amazing room and probably one of the hardest we’ve ever done.

Thank you for reviewing Lightning in a Bottle - it is a tough old room, but glad to know you found it rewarding.

Thoroughly enjoyable experience
Oct 2020 • Couples
Me and my partner have now done all 3 “rooms” here now and have thoroughly enjoyed all 3. The back story that’s link all 3 rooms is cleverly put together. Would highly recommend a visit!!

Can’t wait for future developments!

Fab!!!
Sep 2020 • Couples
Wow! What a fantastic experience. It was booked last minute for my birthday but didn't disappoint. I would definitely recommend it. We escaped from the 'Follow in my footsteps' room. It was great with a few surprises along the way. A very enthusiastic host who explained everything well, he was very friendly and personable. I think the only thing that would of made it better was if we could of got a photo with a placard or certificate to say we escaped with our time on. I think it would of made a nice momento for my special birthday. Overall, a fab time was had by all and definitely my favourite escape room experience yet. Hopefully we'll go back and try to escape from the other rooms.

Thank you so much for your review Dawn. We usually do take photographs and email them on, so apologies for that, I got side-tracked chatting with you. We'll rectify matters when you next visit.

We LOVED it!!!
Oct 2020 • Friends
We booked last minute for my friend’s 50th birthday as our original plans had to be cancelled due to COVID. No regrets whatsoever!!!! We had so much fun! It was imaginative and challenging, clearly a great deal of thought, care and attention has gone in to creating the rooms (including massively unexpected surprises). Absolutely fantastic escape room experience from the moment we stepped through the door. Can’t recommend this highly enough. We’ll definitely be back to try our hand at the outdoor room and Lightening in a bottle.

So pleased to hear you enjoyed your visit Kirsty and that it proved a chance - but worthwhile - alternative to your trip to Liverpool. Thank you so much for your lovely review and we'll look forwards to seeing you again.

The best escape rooms around
Sep 2020
Kanyu Escape is the best escape room experience I've had (having been to five other escape rooms). The sets are high quality, the backstory is compelling and the puzzles are enjoyably fiendish. John and his colleagues, who run Kanyu, are great fun and their enthusiasm for what they're doing is evident.

Family adventure
Aug 2020 • Family
We took our teenager for his 13th birthday and it was an absolute winner. Bob was a fantastic host, explaining everything clearly, including the COVID safety measures to keep everyone safe. I have visited a few escape rooms before but this one felt next level with interesting and challenging clues but with enough help to give us the joy of completing on time. My moody teenager even declared the experience ‘sick’ which is high praise indeed!

Great room, great experience
Sep 2020 • Couples
We went there to do ‘lightening in a bottle’ and frankly it was awesome. The 2 men that greeted us were Covid compliant and very welcoming, we had a really nice chat with them then went into the room. The room was very challenging and fun, we had a few clues and very nearly got out but not quite. I can honestly say it was a great day and we will definitely be going back and even taking our nephews and niece next time.

Amazing escape experience, great fun!
Aug 2020 • Family
Loved the excitement and suspense. So rewarding when you solve the puzzles. This was my second trip to Kanye. I started with the easier room a few months ago and my family loved it so much we went back for the trucker escape room. It was brilliant! Really well designed and executed.

Brilliant!
Aug 2020 • Couples
We've just completed the "Lightning in a Bottle" game and were blown away! Very clever puzzles that'll really challenge you and very well designed. We loved it. Can't wait to come back and try the others. Also was very COVID safe which was reassuring!

Great game, great venue, great host
Aug 2020 • Family
We played as a family of 2 adults and 4 teenagers. This was our first escape room. I had searched a lot online beforehand and settled on this one even though this was not the cheapest out there. If you book here with host Bob you absolutely will not be disappointed. We had booked the lightning in a bottle but luckily due to visiting mid week we had the option to change to an easier room which we chose to do. We weren't disappointed that we had as this proved enough challenge for our first ever room. It was well thought out and thoroughly enjoyable. If you have booked here or thinking of booking here you will not be disappointed. We will definitely be back to try another room. Maybe the harder one next time!

Thank you for your lovely review - it is very much appreciated! We'll look forwards to seeing you again for the stiffer challenge (or maybe the outdoor game that's of a similar level to the one you completed).
