I went to the Locked Room 2 weeks ago during the school holidays with group of friends. It was so professional and the lady running it, i think her name was Holly was so friendly and helpful. She really made the experience and helped us a lot when we got stuck during the clues. I highly recommend this locked room. Amazing !!!!!!!

Awesome escape room experience. Absolutely surpassed our expectations, especially given it’s size. A great combination of puzzles and codes, which we did need one hint for, in order to make it out within the hour! Highly recommend.

Overall a fantastic experience. Friendly staff (Holly) and a really coherent storyline with clever clues and puzzles.

With only a single room I didnt know what to expect, as every other escape room I've done there have been multiple rooms - but it worked. A really great and well crafted story & set up, clever clues with a lot of hidden goodies, and the puzzles were great with a combination of locks and other mechanics. Happily surprised by this room and would highly recommend!

Only negative would be that the place is a bit hard to find, could do with some clear signage out the front!

My partner and I have been travelling the country a fair bit to visit a variety of escape rooms and I would rate this among the better ones.
Even though the room is small, it's a very clever set up and I liked how the probs fitted the theme nicely. Holly was very friendly and accommodating which was great too.
Puzzles were a combination of mechanical key locks and number locks and clues in the room were great to find and solve all the puzzles.
Also, we were running quite late due to some unforeseen circumstances and I had called to let the 'owner' (Male person on the other end of the line) know about it. Sadly, he was a bit unfriendly and also short cut on the conversation as such, giving us a bit if an uneasy feeling before we arrived. Gladly, Holly was super welcoming and friendly, totally making up for it!
