We loved playing the escape game and had lots of fun even though we did not succeed. The staff was very friendly and extremely helpful. Would certainly love to go again.

We did this game with strangers because we couldn’t book the room for ourselves alone. But it was a real good experience. The decoration was excellent and the game challenging. The other members were collaborative and the game keeper very nice.

I was a bit skeptical going in, did not think it was my thing. We all had a blast, I even came home with a sore throat from laughing out loud and screeming withe excitement every time we solved a clue!
