Work jolly out in Reading today. Deadlocked escape rooms perfect team building exercise. We did the Eros AI testing room was great fun.

The research room, looking for missing research of Prof. Bradley was so much fun. Thought an hour was going to be a bit long but actually time flies in there. Great fun and good exercise for the mind too. Charlie was the game master and...More

Poor theme/lack of story Filthy rooms General lack of fun The guys who introduced the rooms were very good but the room just was sub par. We have completed nearly 15 other rooms and this just does not hit the mark.More

Hi there CJ, We're incredibly saddened by this review of our escape room. We're very proud of the fact that our escape rooms feature more story than most, so I'd be very interested to have more specific feedback about what you feel let you down...More

We enjoyed ourselves immensely in the Phoenix Research Room. Charlie was great fun - enthusiastic, encouraging and just a bit impish.

Ok, so it’s not all high tech and wow, but this is such good fun and value for money. The two people working there are brilliant and make the experience more enjoyable. Every clue is somehow linked, so don’t ignore anything. We loved all the...More

I've done both rooms at Deadlocked and it was really fun to see the links between them. It's not the best decorated escape room in the world, but the ideas behind the rooms are so well thought out, the decor doesn't even matter!

We visited with a group of 3 and did the Phoenix room (completed with 20 seconds to go), and it was great fun. It's not as big and flashy as previous escape rooms I've seen but that didn't matter because the puzzles and problem solving...More

Visited in a group of 5, ages 9 yrs to over 50. Everyone had a great time; the hour (well, 59 minutes, 47 seconds) went very quickly. Friendly, informal welcome, and an interesting debriefing afterwards. Fun, surprisingly atmospheric game. Our 9 yr old asked a...More

Hi! We recommend teams of between 2 and 6 per room at once. We can accommodate more at once if we run two rooms at the same time, or for certain special requests.
