We did two rooms today and solved them both, it was amazing and we intend to go back and do their third room also soon as we can. There were three of us and we completed the Marlowe Hotel and Espionage. Both of the themes...More

My favourite part of this room that makes to stand out against other escape rooms is the production value. You can tell that this room was purpose-built. The puzzles were also a great challenge. I intend on coming back to complete the other ones.

Brilliant activity - we were in the Espionage Room. Creative puzzles and clues. We were stumped at one point and the staff provided just enough guidance to get us on track again. Highly recommend.

A great experience. We had to work together as a team to unlock the clues and gain access to the next rooms. Finding out who the name of Murderer was creepy! Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Staff were on hand to help at any time. We’ll be...More

Taken back to 1945 with convincing interior design and sound, we felt transported and engaged. The puzzles were creative, fun, and surprising! The Espionage Room is a memorable experience I would recommend to anyone!
