Amazing! Me and a friend came here and tried “wrong turn” the whole experience was so well thought through from the story line and the puzzles to the props and even the smells! The room was challenging but we did manage to escape with a few clues from the staff!
Alex was great, we got lost on the way and he was happy to talk us through where to go, on arrival he spoke us through everything we needed to know, the whole place was very covid secure. After the game Alex was happy to chat to us and talk about the company, he also explained they change the puzzles so the rooms can be done a few times and you’ll still face new challenges!

The whole experience was 10/10 and we will be back!!

Great fun and immersive experience

Me and my wife enjoy escape rooms and have probably done around 50. The wrong turn one we did was amongst the favourites we have done. A massively immersive experience, Covid safe and friendly staff. Highly recommended

Amazing
Jun 2021 • Family
A completely amazing experience!!! Firstly the founders an owner's are so helpful and friendly, especially having such a hard time during lockdown. Me and me son completed our second room yesterday, a very taunt but enjoyable experience!! Me son and me have never as argued, but worked so hard together for an hour! A great bonding experience! Enjoyable, unusual, adrenaline rush, and can't wait to try the next room, me son keeps asking when we're going again and we only went yesterday!!! Worth every penny, a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Thankyou again to the owners, can't wait for the upside down room to open! Good luck your great!!!

Must visit!!
Oct 2020 • Couples
Booked this as a treat for my better half and we both loved it. We absolutely love horror films so I chose "Wrong turn". From the moment you start you have to find a clue to get into the room. The whole game was immersive right down to the music, the smells, the temperature of the room and the fantastic decor. We probably relied on more clues than many but this didn't deter us as we did figure some things out by ourselves! The twists and the turns and attention to detail clearly show how much hard work the owners put into making it an hour to remember. They have also taken on board the current restrictions from Covid19, and prepare each room accordingly allowing time to disinfect etc...We have enquired about other rooms and are also excited to hear about a new room they will be adding. We can't wait to book again and also hopefully attend one of their late night/special event type rooms too.

One of the best we have been to

This is a brilliant place. We played Laboratory and the puzzles were great and original. Clues came just at the right time. Would definitely recommend and we will be going back to try the other games.

Fantastic!!! Can’t wait to come back!
Oct 2020
Visited with my friend on Saturday evening, and Alex hosted us for Wrong Turn and UI - 55. I had heard good things from a friend who had been a few days previously, so got them booked in straight away.

I can honestly say they did not disappoint. Alex was the perfect host, attentive before the game, during and after. Fantastic social distancing in place, with great covid secure procedures to match. Hand sanitiser stations everywhere.

Reception had a lovely warm feel to it, where Alex & Jen’s personalities really shine through.

We started with Wrong Turn, which I think I can say hand on heart is probably my favourite escape room to date. The theming inside was absolutely incredible, the level of detail was something you would see in Universal Studios, on a film set or in a theme park. The atmosphere was truly creepy! The puzzles weren’t too hard, but we did get a few little nudges from Alex when we were not being very observant.

The submarine based UI - 55 was the next on the list, and I can definitely say we were not ready for this. This room was huge! I won’t give much away but it is definitely not your run of the mill escape room. What I will say, is that I do not recommend it for any groups less than 4. We were a 2 and we still had an absolute ball playing, but with the sheer amount of puzzles there are to do, I definitely recommend bringing a bigger group. The puzzles in there were fantastic, and the use of space was so impressive!

I can’t recommend this place enough! We will be heading back this week hopefully!

Thanks again Alex!

Best room ever!
Oct 2020 • Couples
Well, where do I start...this is by far the best room we have ever done. The room had plenty to do, with a range in activities varying from physical to mental with so much fun to be had. This is also the first room that I would go back again as it can be replayed,which just shows the sheer amount of tasks there are to do in this room. Due to the set up and size of the room,this can be done with 2 - 10 people, I cannot stress enough how fun this room was! Based on the current pandemic, the room was very clean and items are replaced for each game so that they can be cleaned again. The owners also helped in celebrating my other halves 30th birthday, which just shows how much they care about their rooms and players. Thank you once again, look forward to returning and playing more rooms.

Incredible!
Oct 2020 • Couples
11th October we played UI55 for our 30th room for my 30th birthday. This was by far our favourite room yet, i didn't think the other rooms at compendium could be topped but wow. An amazing room with lots to do,even with 6 we were all busy. Cannot wait for the next one! Alex and Jen are brilliant hosts and made my 30th extra special by adding some surprises into the room 😁

Spectacular
Oct 2020
Played Ui58 unbelievable. This is probably our 30 plus breakout now and it’s by far the best. Different from the run of the mill. Anybody that criticises this has serious issues it has everything. Covers all aspects of puzzles logic and searching. The first that I would go back to tomorrow as it’s got unfinished business for me.
Extremely Covid safe and is ideal for older family members. Not much bending down you will know what I mean. Cannot wait to try the new games they have lined up.
This is the way forward keep up the good work.

The best escape room we have done!

We played the Bedlam escape room and were buzzing when we came out! The best escape room we have ever done. Alex & Jen are lovely, and clearly so passionate about creating these amazing rooms. Can’t wait to go back!
