We arrived a few minutes early for our 12:00 booking and were invited to play some board games they have our on their tables. At our game time we were greeted by the warm, friendly and most excellent Fran, who was to be our games master for our session in Jungala. Straight away we felt we were in good hands and we were not disappointed. The rules were explained clearly and concisely and we were given plenty of time to ask questions and get ourselves comfortable before the game started. Going from room to room was so much fun and the adrenalin rush of solving the clues and puzzles was amazing. We ended up completing it in a very reasonable 27 minutes. This room is ideal for the whole family as we had a 12yo and 9yo with us and they both solved a lot of clues on their own. There are four other rooms, all varying degrees of difficulty. All in all, this was a fantastic experience and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for something fun and exciting to do in the city.

Had a blast doing this today. Misery and Jungala were extremely fun and I did Whitechapel a month ago. Sean, Ella and Eithne were very kind to us. This is only worth 5 visits and one for each room but it's going to be 5 visits worth spending. Would recommend

A really enjoyable experience.
There was various rooms to choose from at different skill levels. The puzzles were well thought out as we're the props and narrative for each room. We did the Jumanji-esk room and the Alcatraz themed room. One team failed and we succeeded well in the the hour time frame. The team that failed were very close so the staff allowed them an extra ten minutes to finish the room.

We were hosted by Ethne who was very friendly and professional. She explained everything perfectly, helped out during the game and took some great photos afterwards. As one team finished well before the other she spent time to chat with us whilst we waited and gave us updates on the other teams progress - she made us feel very welcome.

Hi Filip, Thank you for your lovely review! Jumanji and Alcatraz are certainly different vibes for the teams to tackle- I am glad there was such a clear victor though (and that everyone enjoyed themselves, of course). Eithne is indeed excellent and welcoming- she said you were all very good fun to host! Kind regards, Chris and the Escape Reality Team

Booked this as part of our girls night out, with only one of us having done an escape room before! I wasn’t sure on what to expect & was quite nervous, but Ailsa was absolutely fantastic with us. When we first arrived we were warmly greeted by all staff and they were very excited for us which was lovely - made us even more excited to take on the challenge! Ailsa took us to our room & explained everything to expect in perfect detail, she made sure we knew we could leave for the toilet/in an emergency & that help was always on hand if need be. The room itself was brilliant - I didn’t expect to have to use my brain quite so much but really loved the thought process behind the puzzles & clues! We managed to escape with 10mins to spare & the whole Escape Reality team cheered for us when we came out! We also got Polaroid pictures & an emailed copy of our photo which was a lovely touch & keepsake.
We’re already planning on coming back to take on a different room & will recommend yous to anyone who will listen. Thanks for a great night after a lousy year of being stuck indoors. Can’t recommend or thank yous enough - especially Ailsa. Sx

Hey Sophie! Thanks so much for coming to play Murder in Whitechapel! It's one of our favourite rooms, so it's always fun to hear feedback and we're really happy to hear that you enjoyed it. Congratulations on your escape! Not everyone manages - so well done! Alisa is great and we've passed your feedback on to her, she will be really happy to know that you enjoyed it.

I went in a group of 4 to do the Alcatraz room. The staff were all very friendly when we went in and our game master Fran was so lovely.
The room was brillaint, it was a hard room which made escaping feel even better.
We will definitely be going back here to do more of their rooms and would recommend anyone looking for a brillaint escape room experience to try here.

We got the chance to try out the new Conspiracy room recently, and it was so much fun. Escape Reality is such a cool space to start with, with it’s underground setting and cute welcome area. All of the staff were super friendly, and our host Fran was fab. So welcoming and informative, and never made us feel daft if we had to ask for a hint.

The rooms are beautifully decorated, with so many cool details – the production quality of all the features is top notch! Along with the spooky music, it all builds towards a fun, exciting atmosphere. The puzzles involved are the perfect blend of challenging and satisfying, and a non-linear approach meant each of our 3 group party could busy themselves at the same time.

This was my first visit, but I will definitely be back and would recommend a visit to all!

Hey there! Thank you so much for your review! the new Conspiracy room was a labour of love for everyone in the branch, and it's so lovely to hear people enjoy it! We've also tried hard to make our little basement space as inviting as possible (the secret is to embrace the notion that you can never have too many fairy lights....) I never made you feel daft because you never were daft- you had such strong ideas for how to figure out the puzzles, and you were a genuinely excellent group to look after! We hope to see you back again! Kind regards, Fran

Loved this experience from start to finish. I called the office, Richard was first class, explained everything like cost per head and that as we had 2 rooms booked at the beginning of the day they could start both rooms off at the same time. The room I was in (Misery) and the room my other friends participated in (Whitechapel) were great fun. Some people who had done rooms previously preferred this venue and set up. Our hosts Abbie and Richard were first class in every way. If you like Escape rooms - this is definitely for you.

My wife and I were in the area on a Friday afternoon and decided to try escape rooms for the first time. We contemplated pre booking but wasn’t quite sure if it would be our thing.

Fortunately we arrived at a quiet hour and our host was happy enough to let us in and explain how it all works, going into detail about each of the rooms and their difficulty level. Had a great chat too!

With an NHS discount, we went for Jungala which was ideal for beginners and families. The first area in the room was quite non-linear and we struggled to find a certain code. Thankfully our host could see we were struggling 20 mins in and came by to give us a small hint.

After which we were able to find our stride and solve the remaining areas within 45 minutes!

We came away feeling satisfied with our first time experience. Our host also let us have a sneak peak to their newest room Conspiracy which looks great! Would love to come back to give it a try if we’re in the area again.

Thanks again!

Hey Ben, For a pair of first-timers, 45 minutes is a very respectable time, especially with the slight confusion in the first room! Well done! One of the great pleasures of this job is guiding people from having no idea what an escape room is into falling in love with the concept- certainly seems like you both really enjoyed yourself! Conspiracy is waiting for you if you ever feel like unraveling the mystery... Kind regards, Fran

We had a work teambuilder event in Escape Reality and we all had a great time. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the puzzles were thought provoking. Both teams escaped within the hour and team photos were taken afterwards. We played in the Misery and Conspiracy rooms and i would recommend both although the dead dummy and plastic limbs in Misery might make it less suitable for younger players. Word of warning, one of us nudged the dummy in the Misery room by accident and it moved. It gave the rest of us a fright but also a good laugh afterwards. Would highly recommend Escape Reality for first timers and return players.

Myself and my partner did go to escape reality on Saturday 2nd July and it did not disappoint. We played murder in Whitechapel and was the quickest hour of the day we came out feeling pumped and like we could do it all over again. Staff were lovely and very helpful explaining everything as we had both never done an escape room before. Will defo be back

Well Detectives, they said you were the only ones capable of solving the case, and they were right! Glad you enjoyed your first escape room. Hopefully we will see you again in the near future taking on one of our other rooms! Kind regards, The ER Staff
