4 of us turned up to do this experience , my daughter & her boyfriend, my Wife & myself, ages from early 30’s to early 60’s. The host explained what was going to happen & how everything would work. Really enjoyed it& the time flew by. We did need a few clues to help us along, but it really got you thinking. We didn’t escape, but we still really enjoyed it. Would definitely do it again & would definitely recommend.

Plus: highly atmospheric, room well thought out and would imagine for those of a spiritually sensitive nature possibly very scary. Its a challenge especially when sight not too good as its a bit gloomy, but very easy to become wrapped into the quest to release spirits! The special effects and management provided by a guide Keighley were good - she must have been highly amused by us at times....won't say why as don't want to spoil for others. The staff work hard to make the trip special, well done.

Staff were very accommodating, great to find somewhere open and welcoming. George explained how it all worked as we are newbies. As a family of 5 it was an ideal way to spend an hour working as a team
Would definitely recommend, just phone up and book.

We went as agreed family group and did Sam's saloon and prison x. We all agreed that they are both great rooms with some really good puzzles. Both suitable for the kids we had with us too and they were made very welcome (10 and 13) so that was a real plus point.
Some room for improvement though (we have done lots of escape rooms and may be a little set in our ways). Our host Rachel was really lovely and friendly but she gave us a couple of clues before we were really ready for them and also we didn't really like the whole 'prize room' concept which essentially is a ploy to make you spend more money. I get that businesses need to make it work but 'come to our prize room, everyone gets a prize' is great until you get there and are told 'it's 5 pounds a go.' Felt slightly like we had been scammed (yes we could've said no but we didn't).

Hi Gemma9239 Many thanks for your review. You mentioned the prize room concept which is unique in we believe it the only such thing in an escape room in the UK. We give each team an option to buy prize room ticket at £5 which gives them two chances to win a prize, one of which is a guaranteed prize and also give the opportunity to crack our safe which has a prize value over £1000. This is total optional and we at not time insinuate that you must do the prize room. Therefore I feel your use of the word scammed is misplaced and the fact that you actually did take us up on the prize room I find a little more bizarre. If you thought a scam then don't spend £5 for a go.

Have been here before and highly rated the Prisoner room. Today we did Sam’s Saloon and whilst the idea of the room was good and we liked the challenges, there were serious issues that need addressing - errors on the directions of the map puzzle, faulty safe etc These meant that we lost valuable time and got frustrated with the game. Please, please, please ensure that puzzles work before users spend £80 for an hours experience!

Hi Many thanks for you review of Sams Saloon. Having spoken with the Games Master who was with you on your game, she mentioned that she said for you to make sure that you give the safe buttons a good firm press and to wait for it to reset if a mistake was made. It was certainly working. With regards to errors of the directions of the map, you must have gotten this correct as the map directions led to the safe. I am sorry that this did not live up to your expectations this time, but on reflection all of the puzzles seemed to working correctly at the time.

A fantastic experience in both the Sam's Saloon & The Basement escapes!
Fun, well constructed & well balanced.

The host/game manager we had was Rachael and was excellent keeping it live and focused.
Facilities were well provided and even got the free chance to go for a prize draw!

All round excellent experience & would definitely recommend for any age and groups!

The team and I have just completed the room The Basement . The game itself lived up to all expectations with puzzles and scares galore plus some . The whole experience was enhanced by a very professional and over enthusiastic facilitator Olivia so a personal thanks to her . So if your team fancy some very well organised puzzles , great looking rooms and a scare or two , three , four etc then this room I would highly recommend. Will definitely be going back to have a crack at the others . Again a personal thanks to Olivia , a real asset to the team there .

Thanks for your kind words and indeed, Olivia is a credit to Escape Time. Delighted that you all had a great and scary time. We have two other rooms for you to try, and are in the process of building a Japanese Zen Room that you may also wish to experience. This is due to open at the end of September.

So simple to book from the excellent website.
On site designated parking, which we were able to use after the experience as it was a fairly quiet day.
Met by our fantastic host Rachel and invited in early.
Thorough, professional briefing and on into a brilliant room - Sams saloon.
We were two couples, so 4 of us in the room.
Clues attacked as they arose, with just enough timely cryptic intervention from Rachel to keep us somewhere near to the right track.
We escaped with 12 mins to go, although we had lost all track of the time.
A photo of the team ‘Carrots over the Silver Bridge’ to follow
10/10 to Rachel and 10/10 for the room.
The others look great to.

We went as a group of four not fully knowing what to expect. So, with an element of trepidation, we arrived at the venue and were greeted by Rachael. Rachael was an absolutely fabulous games master and made us feel so welcome. Now, the escape room itself...we had opted for The Basement so were a little nervous to say the least! What can I say? It was brilliant, so many screams from the group, the atmosphere was great, the setting was brilliant, the puzzles were spot on, don't want to say much more for fear of spoilers! Rachael our games master made the experience even better, the banter between her and our small group was excellent, felt like we'd known her for years! Can't recommend this place enough, we will definitely be back, we want to try the prison room next.

Today myself and the gang did the basement room which was awesome. Our host Olivia managed to scare us numerous times throughout the experience - my leg was grabbed and I don't think I've ever screamed so loud! Brilliant experience and with other rooms, we'll be back. Pizza for afters was an unexpected treat - thank you Olivia for having us!
