Great time escaping!

Fabulous! We were a group of 4 adults and an eleven year old. We did the frozen in time room. Staff were lovely, everything was well explained. Can't wait to try the secret service room.

Amazing first time
Sep 2020 • Family
I took 3 11-year olds for their first escape room experience. We did Frozen in Time. We had originally booked for the Spy Room but had to change our booking last minute due to issues with opening times/Covid. None of us had ever been in an escape environment before so we were lost before the first couple of clues were send through to us. After that it was full steam ahead! All 3 of them want to go back and try the harder room. I'm sure if we had tried the harder room this would've been 5 stars

We went for the night to exscape and booked for the secret agent room, the guy on the desk was welcoming and helpful, the room it's self was really good started off fairly straight forward and then got more complicated, when we made it out the guy took the time to explain the last part that we were stuck on, would definitely recomend

Good but could of been better
Aug 2020 • Family
Arrived with high hopes, the room was ok however a number of errors were made in the clues (not on our part) sadly which meant we spent time chasing the wrong answers. Completed but felt like things should and could have been checked over thoroughly before letting out the room. I would go again, but not in a hurry. Staff were friendly and apologetic. Worth a try for a day out with the kids.

Fab team building event
Mar 2020
Couldn't complain about anything, Visited as a group of ten work colleagues (split in to 2 groups), so competition was running high. The service was fantastic, everything from Health and safety to what to do if you got stuck was explained really well. The entire group really enjoyed it and will definitely be back as soon as we can!
