Great staff to help us. Excellent puzzles to solve, just enough hints to prevent us getting stuck. We had a blast. This was a Christmas gift for one of our adult children and we did it as a family.

Interesting theme and some creative decor. The puzzles were varied and challlenging and our adult family group had a great time. The staff are very friendly. Parking isn’t so easy so recommend going by tram if possible.
