No atmosphere and rushed to get us out
Jun 2021 • Couples
We just played Cluetankhamun and were not really too impressed.

The staff didn’t seem interested and there is just no atmosphere. We have done 20-25 escape rooms and this one was pretty average at best.

One of the torches we were given did not work. No big issue but maybe check these before throwing them back into the bag for the next team.

The main issue for us was that we felt really rushed to complete the room and go home.
We booked the 8.30pm slot, we completed the room in 40 minutes and the main front doors were locked when we tried to leave.

But the reason for finishing in 40 minutes was because the host just kept displaying clues on the screen before we had barely had a chance to try and solve the puzzle.

At one point we even said to him “come on mate give us a chance to try the puzzles first before telling us the answer!”

The second to last clue was ridiculous, we literally found both halves of the prop needed and before we even got the props together they had displayed a clue telling us what to do.

It just seemed like they were waiting to go home for the night and wanted us out as soon as possible.

We did pass this feedback to the host afterwards and advised him to give people time to think and try puzzles for a few minutes first. He just said “well it’s our hardest room and most people need clues”
I understand that but if you aren’t even giving them a chance to try the puzzles or even think about them you are ruining the experience.

If you are doing detonation escape look at the fan and type the numbers into the keypad next to the door if the numbers aren't visible they are 1902

Definitely worth going!
May 2021 • Friends
Went for my dad's 68th birthday, great during covid times as you are in a room in your bubble. Alex was excellent at his job, made us laugh and really made the experience a fun one. The game itself was fantastic, a real hidden crystal that I didnt know was not far from me! Highly recommend going, ideal for all ages (our group were aged 32-68 and everyone enjoyed it). Thanks for a great time!

Superb! We will be back.

My husband and I had a great time playing both Cluetankhamun and AI9 rooms. Hubby is not the biggest fan of Escape Rooms and only plays because of my love for them (yep, he's a keeper!) and even he agreed that these were the 2 best games he'd ever played.
We were superbly looked after by Alex and Sian - thanks guys!

Alex made the experience!
Aug 2020
Our group of 5 went on a Saturday morning for someone's birthday, and we all had a brilliant time! Alex was our room host, and he had a great balance of humour and sarcasm which meant although some of the puzzles were easier than other rooms I've done, the whole experience was really enjoyable! We enjoyed drinks at the cafe bar after we escaped, and Alex went out of his way to ensure we had a fabulous lunchtime meal at The Ridge restaurant next door. Although it looked a little basic from outside the venue, once we got into the room we had a thoroughly enjoyable time - would highly recommend!

A Great Escape
Aug 2020
Our host Alex worked really hard to give us a great day. We completed 2 outstanding escape rooms (Egypt and AI9), there was an awesome variety of puzzles & activities, together with a bunch of visual and audible effects to keep the atmosphere fun. We completed both rooms as a pair and had a memorable set of adventures. Alex also sent us away with a bunch of recommendations for other good quality escape rooms in the area. We would be keen to do some more ClueHQ rooms in the future.
Might be nice to have a photo taken with completion time afterwards as a nice momento after the day - but this may have been a covid precaution.
