We tried the Egyptian room. It was very well decorated. We enjoyed the puzzles; there was more than the usual padlocks. We liked the fact that you can get an imperfect victory instead of just pass/fail. Our host was really friendly; the way the experience...More

Did the Ramesieze room. Very fun the way we got locked in. There were 7 of us and we got straight to it. We were all kept very busy, resolving puzzles, would have liked some more difficult ones but overall a great experience!

Very good both games. Ramesees was much more “original” in its problems, not just the standard 4code lock thing. Had lots of cool things going on. Ranesses was a little easier than the cyberdyne one. Well hosted. Could do with a visual leaderboard!More

Never been to an escape room before but after this would love to go again. A great experience and plenty for all seven of us to do. A great combination of practical and mental challenges.

We have had children as young as 12 do the room by themselves, it has gone well. We ask that a responsible adult remains in the building with us, you can watch the game on the CCTV we use, or sit in our reception.
