Excellent experience. Very well thought out room. Nothing like this available in the UK so glad we took the opportunity. The theme of the clues was in keeping with what one would expect from an Egyptian tomb. Well designed, friendly staff and very good value for money. Would highly recommend.

As a business / bonding event our company booked all four rooms, twice each, a few days ago. It was a lot of fun.
With just enough help from a passing scientist, our team of ten got through all of the tasks - which was our goal. Did it turn-out that we couldn't save The Earth? - Oh well. We were safe in the future, and out in space, so.....
Like any "puzzle" or 'brain teaser" it's easy once you know it. And of course there were a few 'V-8' moments. The hour goes very quickly, and the clock does NOT pause or run backwards. That was my only issue....
We unleashed a robot (that looked like a Room-Ba mated with an I-Pad) that presented info on its screen; telling us & showing us where to step next. The problem was that when we correctly got an answer, there were a few times when too much 'lag time' occurred before the Room-Ba Droid changed screen text and/or vacuumed its way over to the next area to tackle.
At the end, instead of having 9 seconds to "Do the right thing" we could have had almost 60 to 90 seconds before "Doing the wrong thing"
Here's a positive double negative: Nobody didn't have fun. There were about 80 of us, and every person said they enjoyed it and that they would do it again - - - EVEN if they had to pay for it themselves.
Note: The Clue Chase has a nice tie-in with a restaurant (STK) in the lobby of the same building. It worked very well.

I surprised my boyfriend with Clue Chase's Alien Encounter room with 6 other friends. We had a great time! We came one clue away from solving the room (heard this is one of the most difficult rooms), we did experience some glitches with the room since a lot of it was sensor/technology based but our game master came in to check it out. But besides that, we loved the puzzles and setup! Highly recommend this room especially if you're tech saavy!

I booked The Lost Spy for my husband's birthday and we had a blast. We booked all the slots in the room for 10 people, and I think if we didn't have 10 people we would have had trouble escaping because at some point everyone was doing something. There wasn't much standing around, and we were able to get out with just over 2 minutes remaining although some of our people were convinced when we had 9 minutes left that we weren't going to make it. It was a blast, and it was great given that we had a mix of people who had done escape rooms in the past and some that hadn't. We were all looking at various things at various times and that was the way we solved it. Had we all been focused on the same things we never would have been able to complete it! It was definitely worth the price point given the quality of the game.

We, group of 5 (4 adults 1 child), enjoyed the egyptian tomb escape room over the weekend and it was great. The riddles and puzzles were hard, but well thought out, You will definitely want to bring your mental A game. The rooms were professionally set up nicely and it does add to the overall experience. We have been to other escape rooms and clue chase definitely is one of the better ones. They have 4 rooms and there's a small part that inter-connects all 4. After doing our first room, we are excited to do the other 3 to finish off the entire experience. I would highly recommend this to anyone who likes a little bit of mental gymnastics. Definitely go with a group of people you can trust and work well with, as you'll need them. The staff there is great and very friendly. Two bits of caution, first, definitely make sure you get there with plenty of time as you will have to go through security before you get to the elevators and that means everyone must have an id, and you will get passes to enter the building. This could take up to 10-15 minutes before hand. And there's a short orientation before your game. Secondly, the games are a little difficult and sometimes maddening. Keep pushing and don't give up, sometimes, all you need is a second or third pair of eyes to help you figure it out. And not everyone escapes. But Enjoy.
