We've wanted to experience an escape room with our two young teens, having completed the cross keys Sherlock in Amsterdam when it first opened years ago. There was lots to live up to and this did not disappoint.

Great theming, really good range of puzzles & conundrums that played to the whole family's various strengths and different ways we all think. As with all games rooms some red herrings and also some things that seem so innocuous that you fail to see them as they are - despite being integral to the game. We played as a family of 4 - with a 13 & 14 year old and everyone was able to carry their weight and be integral to solving various parts of the game & really bonded us as a family working together. Best family activity I think we've ever done- thanks so much.

Had a bit of difficulty with a couple of the clues and with some of the physical elements at which point we asked the games master for some help. This ranged from: check you're using it properly (we had the right answer but the equipment was not complying to sausage fingers so after 5 mins we were desperate to check we weren't being thick - we were as we weren't being accurate enough) to cryptic clues that helped when you actually worked them out, but initially you thought he must be having a laugh. This was all really cool as you don't want it handed on a plate, but when you are really struggling (especially with kids) a clue is beyond helpful - Thanks Dan - you are a genius for helping in such a fab way!! It's nice that they must be watching and either thinking 'you are so close to solving this, or you are hilariously so far off the mark' , but they don't intrude or offer any help unless you ask for it. When you ask for help they do it to either refocus you if you are completely floundering or make you look again at what you are doing. It takes a good deal of skill to do this - Dan is indeed a very clever GM.

We escaped by the skin of our teeth with 40 seconds left on the clock. Our daughter had given up by this point and was re-applying makeup for the executioner :0) , but the rest of us pushed on - so never give up, you might be closer to solving it than you think.

My 1 tip is... Hubby almost cocked the whole thing up as he almost didn't follow the ENTIRE instructions on the last task in his eagerness to escape.... If there are any instructions / clues then no matter how keen you are to move on take time to absorb the WHOLE CLUE / INSTRUCTIONS.

We will be back to do the other room and we will be looking for other rooms in this chain- hope they all live up to our first experience & thanks again for setting the bar so high.

3 of us, including our 11 year old soon who’d been asking to do an escape room for months, really enjoyed our visit. Games master Tom was fantastic and really brought the visit to life and assisted us a few times when we needed a bit of help, without giving too much away. We didn’t escape, but had a great time.

Had a great time doing the Hexmoor escape room with friends! Was very well set up and managed to complete it with 3 minutes spare. Sarah, our games master, was very enthusiastic and good! Will be coming back to do Alcatraz!

Came in for my first escape room experience, and I'm sure I'll be back! Two rooms available, we chose the Alcatraz prison escape room, with Tan as our 'prison guard!' She really got us into the spirit of the room, and would nudge us in the right direction whenever we were struggling! Thank you to both Houdini's and Tan for a great time :)

Absolutely awesome! We were slightly late however the games master made a joke and dealt with it superbly. They were funny throughout and made us smile, think and laugh. The game is brilliant and really smart. One of the only ones we didn’t manage to escape!
