Good fun and worth the money. Didn’t manage to solve all the clues but that didn’t spoil it. Started off thinking too much into the clues instead of laterally. Once we warmed up a bit we got through them faster. Great idea especially on a...More

We went as a couple of teams from work. Overall it was really good fun. Couple of things - could do more to attract/ cater for the corporate crowd, also would be good if you could do a longer session, the hour goes too fast!
