Wicked afternoon - can’t wait to do the next!
Nov 2021 • Business
So much thought has gone in to these Escape Rooms. We played SubTerra this trip but will be back! Friendly, super clean and a good level of toughness 💪🏼

Captain’s Treasure deluxe portable game
Nov 2021
Our daughters had booked the Captain’s Treasure deluxe ‘escape at home’ game for my birthday. During the pandemic, we’ve done several escape rooms, virtual ones in real time & the sort that come in a box with paper puzzles, but none could hold a candle to this one. It is in a class of its own. This game replicates the real-life escape room experience & I loved the fact that it was in 2 Acts so you could take a break in the middle if you wished. From the moment the game was delivered to our door, you knew this was no ordinary game, nor had it been rushed out to compensate for the closure (& loss of income) of the real escape rooms during the pandemic. This pirate-themed game comes in heavy oak authentic-looking chests: the build & design quality is absolutely fantastic, the attention to detail is stunning. However this is definitely not a game that is all appearance & no substance. The puzzles were very varied, playing to the different strengths within our family, whether you were clever with words, maths, logic or just the occasional burst of inspiration. The level of difficulty suited us. We were determined to solve it without the available hints & we did, but it was good to know that help was there should we have needed it. We had such terrific fun, that we cannot recommend this highly enough. In fact we think that for the hours of entertainment we had, the fact that all 5 of us were fully engaged all the time & for the sheer delight in discovering the secrets contained within each box, it is underpriced & you cannot say that often these days. To summarise: this is a beautifully-designed, thoroughly well-thought-out treasure of a game. Try it if you can!

Thanks so much for writing such a wonderful and detailed review! We love it when our portable game is hired for a special occasion and we’re delighted that you had a great time. A lot of effort goes into designing and crafting our games, so it’s really rewarding to hear that you enjoyed the gameplay, mechanics and ‘set-dressing’. We hope to see you again when our next experiences are ready. Thank you 🙂

Brilliant escape rooms!!!
Aug 2021
Absolutely brilliant escape rooms! They're so thoughtfully designed, and you can tell the owners absolutely love it! :) This was the first escape rooms we completed, and we loved it so much it sparked our enjoyment for escape rooms and we've now completed 15+

I would highly highly recommend these, even for beginners as we were beginners when we completed them!

Fantastic escape room
Oct 2021 • Family
We were a family of 9 visiting the area for the weekend looking for an activity to span 3 generations. Co-Decode was perfect! We’ve done a few escape rooms before and this was bang on for us - just the right balance of challenge and fun (kids aged 11-14 fully engaged). Because of the size of our group, we booked both rooms at the same time. Alex and Sophie were wonderful hosts - clearly put so much love into making the rooms but also realised everyone was there to have fun… and made sure we did. 100% recommend.

Absolutely brilliant. Alex was fabulously friendly and helpful. We were new to escape rooms and needed a bit of coaching. Lots of laughter and fun.

Would highly recommend!
Oct 2021
Another fabulous experience at Co-Decode! Having done the Professor Dunstan escape room a couple of years ago, I returned with my 14-year old son and a couple of his friends to try out the Sub Terra room this time. We weren't disappointed.
Alex and Sophie were very friendly and made us feel very welcome and explained everything clearly before we went in.
Once inside, it was obvious that the level of thought, detail and precision that had gone into the room was all to a very high standard. Lots of clever and subtle clues to solve and the time passed so quickly. We all really enjoyed it and would thoroughly recommend.

Thank you for your return visit and for leaving us such a lovely review! We’re so happy that our second room lived up to your expectations and that you all had a fun time solving your way through the challenges together. We’re currently building our third puzzle experience and it would be great to host you again in the future :)

Outstanding
Aug 2021
Completed both rooms in the same day. Had heard that Sub Terra was one of the best games for miles and absolutely was not disappointed. Have to say I actually personally preferred Professor Dunstan's! So much thought and work has gone into both of these rooms and I'm looking forwards to seeing what they come up with in the future, massive congrats to the owners for making such great, original experiences

Thank you for very your kind words! It's always interesting for us to hear which room players prefer, as they have different styles to the gameplay and challenges overall. We're working hard on our next venue-based experience at the moment, which will be something a bit different again so we hope you'll return and enjoy playing it just as much :)

Really impressed
Sep 2021 • Couples
We did the Sub Terra escape room (one of two on the same site) and were thoroughly impressed. It was the first experience of any escape room for me and my wife, so we had no idea what to expect, or how amateur/professional it would be, but my (27-year-old) daughter and her boyfriend (the other half of our team) have tried several. Their verdict was it is by far the best they have done, and I was really impressed by the range and ingenuity of the puzzles. Just as impressive is the superb theming, with amazing attention to detail. And when it was all over, Alex (the owner) went to a lot of trouble to explain what we did wrong! We will certainly be back to tackle the other room ASAP.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a fantastic 5* review! I had a lot of fun hosting your game - it was lovely to meet you all and to have a chance to chat after you had successfully escaped :) Sub Terra was about a year in the making, so feedback like this makes all the effort building it worthwhile - thank you. We are hoping that our next experience, which is currently under construction, will be equally well received. We hope to see you again.

Great Escape Room
Aug 2021
We really enjoyed Professor Dunstan's escape room at Co-Decode. We were a party of 4 with 3 generations of the family, and there was something for all of us. The puzzles are well-crafted and multi-layered, which makes solving them more challenging, more fun and ultimately more rewarding. You can tell how much thought has gone into them and into making the experience immersive. The room and props were all authentic and well thought out.

We received a friendly welcome and it was our choice if we wanted to receive any hints and tips during our time in the room. We definitely needed them as we were a bit chaotic, and they gave us a gentle nudge in the right direction when we were a bit stumped.

Would definitely recommend this experience and we will be back to attempt our escape from the other room!

Thank you for the kind recommendation, we're so glad you enjoyed the game and felt immersed in Oldervik's world. A lot of effort goes into creating the little details. We love multi-generation teams as the players will often have a good mix of skills and abilities that complement each other, plus its lovely to watch everyone being able to work together regardless of age :) I really enjoyed hosting your game and hope to see you again for Sub Terra.

Great experience, Co-Decode creators are 2 very clever people!
Aug 2021
Visited the Sub Terra escape room yesterday for our daughter’s 14th birthday. Had a great time and we are very appreciative of the effort and detail that has gone into creating these Escape Rooms. This is the second one we have played from Co-Decode and we are really hoping a 3rd is soon on the way! Such a clever idea - our family of four thoroughly enjoyed it. The level of detail and puzzle concepts were amazing.

That’s very flattering, thank you for writing such an amazing review 🙂 We love it when families have a great time puzzling and we are glad that you liked your second experience at our venue as much as the first. Building work for our next room is under way (although it will take a little to complete!) and we can’t wait to welcome you back once it’s open!
