3 of us turned up to play one game, but sadly it was broken so they opened a different game. This was a very good game. We used minimal clues. Such helpful staff. Great games. Different difficulties. Definitely with a go

Just escaped from Bunker 38 with seconds to spare!! We loved it. It got a bit frantic towards the end and we did need some clues along the way. We’re looking to see when we can return to do another room!
