A clever idea. Fun way to spend an hour with family. Don't assume you'll "make it out." It's actually pretty difficult. But they give you hints to keep it fun and challenging, rather than frustrating.

This was a great fun experience for the whole family. My only criticism is that is I quite hard to find and even when we found the right door, it isn't manned in the small lobby area so that we were still unsure we had the right place. We then took a very creaky lift up to the 11th floor and found ourselves in another unmanned lobby. Despite ringing the bell and knocking on the door we assumed to be the correct one, no-one came to answer it and we were left dithering for a few minutes before someone came out and invited us in. That being said, we all thoroughly enjoyed the actual activity and we would definitely recommend it to others.

We really enjoyed the Escape Room. We were in the Victorian Room. It was something totally different from anything we've done. It was more challenging than I expected (We didn't make it out!) I will try the other rooms next time. I need to find some smart friends to go with me!

We did this as a team event - 10 of us that work together and were looking for a team outing othe than the standard happy hour. What a great time - frustrating at certain points - but in the end we put our heads together and escaped with 30 seconds to spare. Would highly recommend.
