    Thank you Kat!
    Kat was our host for our escape room this evening and she was lovely, gave us a few scares that we requested which was received haha! Our experience was 10/10, everyone had fun and participated in the problem solving, although we didn’t manage to beat this escape room we will definitely be back to try out another room. Thank you Kat for making our experience that little bit more memorable.
    Thank you for this lovely review, Kat enjoyed hosting you and I will pass this review on to Kat:) We are glad you enjoyed your room!

    Brilliant kids party experience
    Booked the Hidden Relics Room at Hornchurch for my sons 11th birthday party. My son and his friends came out after an hour and couldn't stop talking about it (in secret not giving anything away). They had such a brilliant time and are already planning there next one for the next birthday. The host in the room helped the kids but only when they were really stuck, so they are able to get on and solve the clues as best as they could. The person who did the introductions was very welcoming and put the kids at ease. The bonus was they took photos throughout which they then email to the booker for me to distribute to the kids parents. Overall a brilliant Escape room, brilliant staff, and looking forward to the next one.
    Thank you so much for this lovely review:) We are glad your son and his friends enjoyed their escape room!

    Best place to escape!
    We’ve done many escape rooms, room lockdown is by far the stand out and superior place to do them. The experience with each game only gets better and better. Each room is so fun and interactive and we have been a repeat customer many of times. Couldn’t recommend enough!!
    Thank you for this kind review! We are glad you enjoy our rooms:)

    The escape rooms here are amazing! Always so much fun and really immersive, so much so that we’ve done literally every one of them! The owner is by far the best host, he really brings the games to life and always makes it a fun time! Highly recommended!
    Thanks for this lovely review, George enjoyed hosting you:) Keep an eye out for a new escape room coming in the near future!

    Very Good - Should of Kept it Scarier But Still Very Good
    We did roots of evil, and baring in mind this is my second time of doing so, still didn't manage to get out, considering first time, my team and I did shockingly bad. It was a massive improvement, we had Rachel as our gameskeeper, she was very approachable, chatty and friendly, and was very helpful during our game. She kept my friend in suspense regarding if it was scary or not, and made her wonder aha. Been coming to this escape room company many times, and will return. 4/5 because i didn't get out, and wasn't as scary as the first time but overall very good!
    Thanks for the review! I will pass this on to Rachel:) Hopefully, see you again to try another room!

    Amazing time, 100% recommend
    Amazing time, we did the dead or alive escape room and the time taken to design and put the room together is phenomenal. We were met by Ashleigh who was our host, she took us through everything and explained the game well. Will definitely be back to try another room.
    Thank you so much for this lovely review! We are glad you enjoyed your escape room, Ashleigh loved hosting you:)

    Creepy Captured Escape Room Fun!
    We had an amazing host Kat and throughly enjoyed the escape room from start to finish! We had much fun, we will be back again very soon! We got out with 7 minutes and 40 seconds to spare, which is our best time for all the escape rooms we have done (we have done quite a few). Everything was just perfect and stayed with the theme it was done perfectly!
    Thank you for this lovely review, I will pass this on to Kat:) We are glad you enjoyed captured!

Spent an absolutely fantastic hour in the prison break room.

The guy at the beginning did a brilliant job setting the scene and then the room itself was excellent. We aged from 8-40, and even a phone obsessed teenager loved it and that’s saying something! Well thought out puzzles and themes made it a lot of fun.

And for the price of £20 per person I thought was good value for money too.

We will definitely be back to do the other rooms! If you’ve got a spare afternoon and want something different to do with the family would highly recommend!

We went as a large family group of 9 people. Ages 21-60.

They allowed us to book one room each and the process of booking couldn’t have been easier.

We did the pirate escape and jail break.

Both fantastically thought out and jail break even had a role play actor there to make it more authentic!

Excellent comments from both groups and we will certainly be coming back.

5*

Added bonus - there is parking right outside and if that is full then there is parking opposite too

Would thoroughly recommend!

We visited Room Lockdown in Romford last week for a last minute booking of all five rooms back to back including the new game Fearstival.

George and Emma are wonderful hosts who made us feel so welcome. George looked after us for the day and quickly switched roles for each room we played into an entirely different and believable character for each one.

Each room is totally different, with unique theming and puzzles and we thoroughly enjoyed every single one!

Highly recommended!

I came with my two daughters aged 12 and 14 and did Prison Break. It was our first ever escape room experience and it was absolutely brilliant. It was really hard, especially the last bit and we needed a few pointers from the host, but we managed to escape with 22 seconds to spare, which got the adrenaline pumping. We thoroughly enjoyed it and will definitely be back.

Myself and friends have played around 10 games at Room Lockdown over the course of the past few years and have always had an excellent experience!

All of the hosts have always been amazing, but a special mention must go out to Kat. She was incredible from start to finish, and when we took part in Cinescream she read how scared our group already were (we are a bunch of wimps) and offered without asking to remove scare acting on our hint board which we took her up on. We enjoyed Kat's hosting so much so, that we have requested her for future bookings.

More on the rooms, they're incredibly well thought out, and the decor is superb. We are close to having completed all of their current available games, at both Hornchurch and Romford, but are excited to know 3 new ones are on the way which we will definitely be returning for.

Having completed 50 odd escape rooms in total, at least 5 of my top 10 come from Room Lockdown. I can not recommend them enough!

We cannot rate this experience any higher. As a group of friends we went for dinner in Hornchurch and then had a late booking for the Stranger Things themed room. Was such good fun, a nice challenge and escaped with just 4mins to spare. Our Room Host Patrick was really friendly and made us feel so welcome, getting nicely into character before we went into the room. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting a good evening out with friends and family. We will definitely be going back to try out a few more of the rooms!

A group of five of us visited today to play Pirate Escape, Elevator and Haunted Mines (followed by Roots of Evil at Romford), and my god, they were all amazing! In every room there was a fantastic array of puzzles, things to find and something for everyone to do. As I type this we are all debating which our favourite one was, and we all liked them all for different reasons. Personally, I think Elevator was the best (possibly because of how much we smashed it!) but it's such a hard call to make as the theming is so wonderfully different between each room.
I can't wait to come back and try more (even the spooky ones!) and cannot recommend this place enough. Thanks for hosting Team Hysteria today 🖤

For my works christmas do we went on an escape room trip, and for a team who have done between 40-100 escape rooms each we were not disappointed. We did Prison Break and Patrick was an incredible Game Master, even at the begining where I had an uncontrolable case of the giggles as we were getting arrested Patrick kept in character the whole time - I was blown away. The room was awesome, such a fantastic use of space. I am definitely coming back to do the rest!

We had Kat as our host. She was an absolute delight to meet. Because of her we came back - and had her as our host again. We have a third visit here booked in for this evening! We have had such a great time every time we have visited and the staff are absolutely brilliant - they’re great at immersing you in the full experience. You can really tell that they are happy to accommodate everything they can, and make you feel welcome and valued.

I would recommend these escape rooms to anyone. We definitely have the escape room bug now!

I Went on 16/07/2022 for the first time with my boyfriend, blind and wasnt sure what to expect. I was welcomed by the loveliest host, Kat & went through everything that was to be expected - she walked us through to the escape room where she went straight into character and got us into the mood for the challenge.
Unfortunately, we didnt finish the escape room! Simply because we got so frightened :’D but it was incredibly hilarious
Upon finishing the escape room, she went through how well we did and what we didnt pick up on and was so lovely to welcome us back again

I would definitely come back & would definitely recommend to everyone who is interested in giving it a go
