The site is very well placed and easy to find. It is very entertaining and exciting. It requires you to think but is not too challenging, there are different levels and difficulty. Overall this place was a very fun activity as a birthday treat.

Hi Emily, 10 people in one session would be absolutely fine. We have 2 identical 1950s based missions, each with a capacity of 7 players, so you could split into two teams of 5 and effectively race the team next door! We do... More

Great question, the standard price is indeed £20 per player, however at times we do have various discounts and promotions running, information on these is available on the Special offers page on the website.
