We booked Escape for my sister’s hen party as an ice breaker to start the day. We were all a little apprehensive but soon found each other’s strengths and had a lot of fun! I would highly recommend trying this out. We did Area51, be prepared there’s more to it than you first expect

We are happy to be part of something important Hen party, Birthday, Anniversary, Proposal. We all want to feel special from time to time and we are glad that we can give something special to our customers. In this case- travelling back in time and do unusual tasks with the goal to travel back to 2018 and escape the game.

The perfect place to bond with colleagues - difficult but fun rooms and super-helpful (and patient!) staff. We will be back!

Thank you for your positive feedback.

We are happy to hear you a brilliant work night out.

Our games are suitable for different occasions like Birthdays, Family day out, work due, Hen parties and its suitable for different age groups.

We believe that escape games are great for team building events. It creates a different atmosphere, different tasks. During the game we can see the leaders, followers and someone who is quite but resolves the most puzzles. It is very interesting for us to see people working in one team towards one goal. Different characters makes the game even more interesting for tam and for us.

We believe it is great skill to have-patients, especially with people and our team we have is great and we can achieve big goals together.

Thank you for visiting us and hope to see you soon for exciting experience in SHEPHERDS BUSH or SHADWELL.

Thank you!

Puzzles to get out of a room are way more fun than I thought it would be. The venue is really close to either of the Shepherd's Bush stations. Good clean fun and potentially bragging rights!

Thank you for your positive feedback.

Yes, we are pleased we have found good location for our games as it is important for people to find us without difficulties. Location can be very crucial to business. It has to be in the right spot.

We have 6 different rooms in London with very different puzzles. We have a great team behind and we all get involved designing and building the games.

Thank you for visiting us and hope to see you soon for another great experience in SHEPHERDS BUSH or SHADWELL.

Thank you!

highly recommend this place! great price and a great day out for team building.

we booked two rooms as there was 12 of us.

The Da Vinci Code room was really good, it was abit hard to find out where to start from but once we started and had help with the first clue we was on our way. they do provide help which was good and we did not anticipate the way it ended - the rules need to abit clearer as we thought we could leave with the prize.

Alien 51 - the team who did this found it hard but enjoyable. they did advise that they did not need to unlock all the clues to be able to get out. whereas in the Da Vinci Room you have to finish all the clues to get out.

all in all we had a great time and was a great team building exercise! would recommend to all!

Thank you for your positive feedback.

We are happy to hear you had a great team building experience with us.

Both games are not the easiest ones, but it is great feeling of achievement when you complete the game within an hour.

The prize-returning customer discount. It is our way to say Thanks to everyone who would want to come back play again! People feel great completing the games as it can not be easy job to steal a HOLY GRAIL or find the evidence about aliens.

Thank you for your visit and hope to see you soon for another experience in Shadwell or Shepherds Bush.

Thank You!

This is is the 5th escape room I have done. The third time I have done it as part of a pair. Did it on the recommendation of my sister.

It's completely do-able as part of a pair, as some escape rooms I have done you would struggle logistically with less than three.

Even though this is a bit out of the way from central London, it is easily reachable via the DLR and a short 5-10 minute walk.

If you arrive early, there is a nice coffee shop a few minutes down the road called the Two Magpies (even though it is located in a heavily residential area)

The price was very reasonable for an escape room in London, where some can cost around £40pp.

The Games Master was clear and friendly and allowed us to stow our cases behind the desk!

Onto the room itself... it was beautifully decorated, some great props sourcing has gone on here!

We didn't ask for many clues, but were given some when we were clearly struggling.

I prefer the interactivity of conversing with the Games Master that you get here, as opposed to generic clues that are displayed on an iPad.

Also there is no time deduction for clues, which is great!

It's a little tricky in places, but all good escape rooms are!

Lovely premise and a must for all Potterheads, though the room does not require any Potter-based knowledge.

We really enjoyed ourselves and got out with 9 minutes to spare. The pirate room sounds fun too, so we might come back on a future trip to London and make use of the 10% discount!

Happy sleuthing!

:)

Thank you for your very positive and detailed feedback.

Thank you for expressing your thoughts and feelings about our Witchcraft and Wizardry game.

We believe we have built great game, but there is always a space for improvements. We have invested many, many long hours to create what we have now, but the work has not stopped yet. Our Game Masters loves helping us to improve the puzzles and it gives as an opportunity to work together and create something better what we can offer to people.

We are very grateful for your comments as every feedback means a lot and it is important for us to see where we can improve.

We always try to see what and where we can do better than yesterday and the feedback we receive helps a lot.

Thank you for your visit and hope to see you soon for another great experience in Shadwell or Shepherds Bush.
