We booked the horror-themed escape room. The riddles were very good, plus the decoration perfectly fitting (including music/Sounds), but the one minuspoint is in my opinion the way, hints are being presented: It destroyed the illusion and the atmosphere was gone, as the game leader...More

A must try experience with your friends in Manchester! It is cheaper as a group, and the secret lab is by far the best for a much-needed adrenaline rush in an hour!
