Owner description: Escape Reading is a real-life room escape game based in Reading, United Kingdom. The game is designed for 2-6 people and offers a fun, team-building, brain-busting experience! After entering a room with your team, the door is locked behind you. 60 minutes are on the clock! Success, failure and bonding are inevitable – escape is not!

There was 3 of us doing the "blown away" room. We loved how much thought went into the room and how diverse the quizzes were! The last 7 minutes were accompanied by the ticking of the bomb which made it really intense and we left with 1,5 minutes to spare!
We had already done 2 escape rooms before in different cities (but were not really experts) but this was the best one by far!

3 of us booked the "Kidnapped" escape room. The premise is you have been kidnapped and have a 60 minute window of opportunity to escape before he comes back and locks you in forever! A really fitting theme I thought, lots of challenging & varied puzzles and just enough clues were drip thread to us by the host (Chloe - who was excellent) so that we didn't feel too stupid and were able to escape with about a minute to spare! Will definitely be coming back to try the other rooms.

Our group consisted of some newbies and some with a little experience of Escape Rooms. Levi was fantastic at setting up our session, giving guidelines and starting to create the atmosphere for a scary time in the room. The actual puzzles were pretty challenging but the atmosphere was a real added pressure with all sorts of surprises and jumps. Overall we were able, with a few well judged clues, to succeed but the pressure and temperature were really intense towards the end of the hour.
All told a great time and we will be back to try the other rooms.

Booked the "Kidnapped" room as part of a Stag do, and was not disappointed. Challenging puzzles, great themed rooms and such a lot of fun. The hour flew by, and thanks to the easy location, we were able to go out in Reading for the rest of the night. Levi was an incredible host, funny, informative and really helped to add to the great experience we had. Thank you all! Looking to book our next room soon
