    We had a great time climbing over the o2. It was a beautiful sunny morning to see all the sights. Our guide Scarlet was fantastic, she was knowledgable and had an infectious enthusiastic personality ensuring we had fun all the way. It is very well organised activity, and we had the opportunity to borrow jackets, shoes and gloves. We definitely needed the shoes as it was slippery on the way down. I would highly recommend this for a fun 90 minutes in East London.

    I went because I heard good things about it from friends and since it was included in the London pass, I decided to give it a go.

    The first part was a well thought out glimpse into the history of the bridge from Roman to Victorian times. Though the sets are a bit worse for wear, it was fun and the actors did their best to bring their characters to life. Especially the barman at the end was really engaging and I would have stayed and listened to him a bit longer.

    Afterwards the scary part of the experience begins, within a haunted house style walking attraction. As there are several real people in there to frighten you, expect a number of jump scares. You walk through different classic horror themed areas which give off a bit of a ghost train vibe adding to the experience. Some scares are really unexpected and if you go there with younger children you might want to opt for their guardian angel option.

    All in all a fun, scary experience.

    Good use of money and entertainment. Amazing actors who interact with you, lots of stuff to learn, wish I went on the electric chair at the end 😔

    Great night out at The Magic Circle. All the magicians are very talented and entertaining.
    Wayne Fox (Foxy) is the best 👌

    It was a very challenging fun room, great location, great atmosphere!
    Ice and Lachlan were lovely, informative and really got us in to the spirit of the 1940’s.

    Great fun for the family. Our game (escape to mars) was brilliant fun. Clever games and lots of teamwork needed to win. Would recommend

    This was our fourth escape room (all with different companies) and it was far the best we have done. The room was really interactive and fun, but still challenging. The technology used was very impressive to us which made the room even more of a delight to complete.

    Cameron our games master was great at setting the scene of the room and pulling you into the story. He knew exactly when we needed a clue, but made sure not to make it too easy. We also really appreciated the added extra of walking us back through the room after and telling us what we did well and where we really succeeded.

    We will definitely be coming back to try out the harder levels!

    It is on the exp side but well organised and some fun experiences. I think once is enough tho unless you live in, or have cheap and easy access to the city.

    I went to Whistle Punk for our Xmas party and we all had a fantastic time. Great layout, great team, nice drinks and reasonably priced food. We had Andy as our Whistle Punk expert and he was friendly, knowledgable and fun. Would definitely recommend and will be back soon

    Impressive structure that we passed during the evening on our way from Westfield to the ABBA Voyage show. Well lit and imposing. We did not go inside.

    Part of the London 2012 Olympic Village. Much bigger than I thought it was.

    Recommended when in the area.

    Bee is an excellent host. She was very funny and helpful. We made it out of the Bunker, 58 sec left. Definitely will return. Need to try the other rooms.

    Super excited about the Battle for Britain room and the fact we got out in the nick of time. Allie was a great game-master, and we will come back to play the other rooms as well.
