Great way for a fun outing for your team - that involves them working together. Spaces are confined so good for smaller groups. As the boss, I thought I was smart but my team's IQ outstripped me in this exercise. Can be a little stuffy.

Couldn't speak more highly of this experience! Great friendly staff. Super easy to book and the actually prison escape was amazing. Heaps of puzzles to get your brain stuck into. Full of atmosphere. Not too easy. Everything was just right!
