The staff were really friendly and the atmosphere was spot on. We played 'the Heist' and it was challenging, but still doable and so much fun. Would absolutely recommend to everyone!

We absolutely loved The Heist... the puzzles were varied and challenging. The adrenaline from the two timed sections added to the thrill to get out!!! This is one of the best escape rooms we have completed! Thanks!!!

The game is designed for adults, however it is fine for children under 16 to attend at their parents discretion. We'd advise that you go in with them though!
