A great first room back!
Jun 2021 • Friends
Had an absolutely incredible time at Make Your Escape tonight.

We were greeted by a friendly face in our host, Evan, who really was fantastic from the get-go. We felt safe, informed and welcome throughout, and so much of that was down to Evan's hosting. Timing was impeccable on clues, coming exactly at points where we were getting frustrated on puzzles, but giving us more than enough time to work them out as well. As a previous host, I know how difficult clue-timing can be, but I can't fault them on this at all. They answered any questions we had and we felt really looked after throughout our visit, especially in providing water, hand sanitiser and just a nice ol' chat as well. Flawless hosting, thank you so much.

Rooms were also fantastic, and we do really recommend both Dystopia and Utopia. We played back-to-back and the way the rooms fit together was incredible. Beautifully designed in that way, and aesthetics were really beautiful as well. Puzzle content was varied and the right level of difficulty throughout.

Thanks so much for making our first escape room back after a long hiatus one to remember. We can't wait to come back and play the other two rooms soon!

Brilliant
Jun 2021
Firstly, they treated us brilliantly. The room we had booked in was unfortunately having some technical issues, but instead of just cancelling/refunding, they let us do a different room (signal) for free and offered to reschedule the original room for another time. Puzzles in the room we did do were great fun, perfect for getting back in to the swing of things after not having done any rooms for a long time after all the madness of the last year. Harry the games master was lovely too :)

We had a great time, the puzzles were challenging but not impossible, and our host Helena was fantastic! We will definitely be coming back to tackle another room in the future!

My group had so much fun with the spellbound room even though it was challenging. The host Harry was amazing and super helpful with everything. I would highly recommend anyone who likes escape rooms to try their rooms.

Great day out completing the Signal!
Oct 2020
We had a great time completing the Signal at Make your Escape. It was our first experience (although our daughter had done two before and encouraged us to go). We weren't sure what to expect but loved getting straight into the experience once we'd had our briefing and starting to work well as a family team. Surprisingly for us we all remained calm too! our host fed us just enough clues and times to help us when she could see we were struggling a bit, and we managed to escape after 56 minutes.

A brilliant experience for family groups, especially on wet days, so please go along and support this business. They are very Covid compliant too and we were the only group entering the building at our allotted time so no issues regarding social distancing. All rooms are also fully cleansed between groups with hand gel etc all readily available.Thanks for a great experience.

Our first time at an escape room and it was brilliant! Would totally recommend to anyone! Age range of our group 13-51 and we all contributed and loved it.
Evan was really helpful and explained everything to us beforehand.

The Signal
Oct 2020 • Family
Had a great time today, first time at an escape room. As I am hard of hearing I spoke to staff beforehand and they had the script and information printed out for me and even our games room leader Shelly had live transcribe app on her phone for me, I was really grateful 😊

We did The Signal as a family of three and throughly enjoyed it! Shelly ‘nudged’ us with tips in the right directions when needed and we escaped with a few minutes to spare, would definitely recommend and will be back!!

An excellent place to visit during COVID superb precautions taken.

So good we came back 2 hours later for another!
Oct 2020
Can't recommend these escape rooms enough, we originally booked to do Dystopia followed by Utopia (definitely do both back to back if you have the time, it's an excellent story) and we had such a great time we came back to The Signal!
We have done a fair few escape rooms as a couple and each of these were very good, and quite unique. Our host Helena was great, thank you so much :)
