The room and theme were really interesting, and the puzzles were challenging but fun. There was always help from the friendly hosts if we were completely stuck. Would definitely come again.

I hadn’t taken part in an escape room type game before so was intrigued to see what it was like. We really enjoyed it, it wasn’t too hard (although we had a couple of moments where we didn’t get it immediately) but it wasn’t easy...More

Such a great experience, and was enjoyed by all my group. We were from scouting so it was a different and fun teamwork event that we will use in the future. Definitely recommended to friends and family
