Our team of five all contributed to crack the clues to move forward and ultimately retrieve the key to unlock the door. It was awesome!

I had great fun trying to figure out the escape room with friends! It was tricky but doable. Thanks for having us 😊

The puzzles were thoroughly challenging and it was a great activity to enjoy with my colleagues. It really makes you think outside of the box and it's handy to have someone on your team who can do so!

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.

We did Prison Break and our 10yr old girl freaked out at the start and we had to let her out. The staff kindly looked after her and let her watch us on the monitor. I think she would have been OK in "Alice" but we didn't... More
