About
New live interactive escape room opened in Didcot Oxfordshire. A small, local, family run business who has kept the room simple but the puzzles fun! We have tried to create an immersive game that can be played by beginners or more experienced escape room players! The game is for 2-5 players aged 14 or older. Anyone under 14 but over the age of 10 can play but must be accompanied by a playing adult

This was our second visit to this escape room. We were eligible for a return customers discount which made this good value compared to other rooms in the area. They only have one room operational at a time and change it every 4 - 5 months. Will run, with a good theme and variety of different puzzles. We were a group of 4 and I think this is a good group size. You could do it with fewer but the room isn't massive so you wouldn't want many more people.

All their rooms have been brilliant!! Just did their recent one 'Avalanche' today. Thoroughly enjoy coming to these guys. They are a family business, so they put a lot of thought, enthusiasm, dedication and ingenuity in their room. Their rooms are interesting, creative and challenging. The puzzles are well thought out, made sense, hard, but don't don't leave you stumped. They help you with puzzles when they feel you really need it, so you manage to complete the room in good time, but not feel like you've had a helping hand all the way through.

Highly recommend! They are slightly cheaper than other escape rooms (£20) which is a bonus. Look forward to your room!!

This was approximately our 17th escape room, and we were happy to find this one is solidly above average. This was more affordable than many other escape rooms in the area, but it didn't skimp on the puzzles. Be sure to read the directions on the website to find it!

We did the Avalanche Cabin with a group of four adults. The room was nicely atmospheric and really got across the theme. Most of the time, there was more than one puzzle to be working on or more nooks & crannies to explore, so there was usually something for everyone to do.

We were also surprised to find several puzzles we haven't seen before in other escape rooms, which was a welcome change. This room really challenges you to go back to items you've examined before and look at them again in a different way.

One note of criticism is that we had to prompt the host to explain certain things about the room. For example, in one of the first rooms we ever did they didn't explain how to use directional locks and so when we encountered one in the room itself we wasted many minutes fiddling with it. It's just generally good practice to ensure all participants are familiar with how a room will work.

Overall, we had a great time. We'll definitely come back here again for new rooms in the future. Thank you!

Really fun escape room - well organised, logical progression, no gimmicks, just some good interesting puzzles that are satisfying to solve. A good introduction to escape rooms for people who are new, but if you are 2-3 experienced escape room players this is also fun. The owner was also very friendly and personable which you sometimes can't guarantee with independent family-run places!

Will definitely come back when they do their next evolution of the room :)

Aileen was a super host who was very accommodating even after hours. She was very responsive and super friendly. Hosted a wonderful game. Highly recommend for a fun night out in Didcot. Can’t wait to return and see the new game.

Excellent time today here for my daughters 14th birthday. I went in with them (5 x 14year old girls). It was tough but not too tough and clues readily available when we needed them. Really good value for money; good, stress free parking and a brilliant way to occupy teenagers!!

Excellent escape room! We first came in 2019 with my partner, parents and two grandmothers. We had such a good time so when we were planning a trip over now after covid we all really wanted to come back. The staff are so friendly and gave really good clues. Theres plenty of sanitiser around and the place is spotless. The room was really well thought out and we all had a great time and there were no accessibility issues (my grandmothers are 80 and 85) and everyone had a great time and could get involved. Cannot recommend them enough!

My wife and I always love a puzzle, and are always up for a challenge! We've not done many escape rooms, but when we found this one local to us we couldn't resist! Much cheaper than other larger places, especially when in a small group like ours. It is great value for money! I loved the layout, all clues in one room. Part of the puzzle is to work out which puzzle you can solve next, and that adds an extra dimension to the challenge. Super friendly, clearly love their job and that shows in the room. Can't wait until they make the next room so that we can go back!

We have just come out of one of most favourite escape rooms ever. Aileen was fantastic, so welcoming, encouraging, professional yet laid back. Just perfect. Great range of puzzles with an original room theme. Tasks very original and well thought out. Won’t say more about that as don’t want to give spoilers. We have done many escape rooms as a family (children 15, 13, 10) and this without question was one of the best if not the best. Highly recommended and thank you again to all who thought up, built and ran this room.

My girlfriend is an Escape Room expert (she has done more than 20 of them) and I am useless at them (I’ve only done 1 before). This escape room was brilliant for us. Well thought out, excellent puzzles, very friendly host, well organised. We couldn’t recommend it more highly enough. Great way to spend an afternoon.
