Overview

A real life escape game has arrived in Durham. You and your team will need to solve a series of puzzles in under an hour, can you beat the room? Great for team building, stag/hen do's or just a great way to spend an hour with friends or family!

My partner and I love escape room games, and have done plenty of them before. The experience here was excellent from start to finish. Had a very enjoyable time.

We planned a birthday surprise for a puzzle loving friend who had never tried an escape room, it didn’t disappoint. We wanted to have fun and we did!, a good mix of just enough clues when requested but left alone otherwise to still be challenging...More

My boyfriend and I took part in the Study themed escape and had so much fun. I couldn't recommend it more! Brilliant afternoon, my boyfriend and I are already planning our next escape. I could imagine it would be great for a team building activity!

Have been twice now and had a great time both times. The rooms were a really good level of difficulty and are enjoyable for most ages

Really great fun. Staff were excellent. Student discount is available which is also really good. Go in a larger group and it costs less per person. 6 people in a room worked fine for us. We're going back to do the other room next week!
