Hi and thanks for that really positive review. Did you know our new Witch room is also a local true story and there are zero code padlocks out of more than twenty puzzles!

A great hour spent trying to get out of a trapped room. Informative history lesson on watches in Newcastle a long long time ago. Take some friends you will enjoy it promise
