Enjoyed the challenge, having to think our way through this challenge was enjoyable. If you enjoy solving puzzles and are looking for a great Team Bonding exercise the Great Escape is worth a look.

We did this for my sons 14th birthday with a bunch of his mates. They all had a great time and it was something completely different.

Great game, we did this as a family with teens, everyone got into it. Gets your brain going. 5 games, lots of choice.

I have to admit I was a bit wary before I entered the room but as soon as we got in there I started to really enjoy myself! Very well organised, prompt and helpful staff. I would highly recommend.

We took a group of boys for a 12th birthday party. It was well organised, challenging and engaged all of them fully. Thanks for a great experience.

Unfortunately it is a lease issue. We are in an old building which we can't alter therefore we can't add any facilities. I understand where you coming from but our hands are tied.
