I visited Extremescape with my escape partner in crime having exhausted most escape rooms in central Manchester. First of all - what a lovely setting for an escape room! Having only previously done ones in the middle of a city, the scenic location was a instant plus! We were greeted by Jess who, along with her partner run the rooms and she explained the concept of the room - you were searching for bags of gold to help you enter a lost Mayan Tomb. The first room we entered was a bit of a warm up and was solved easily but then the real fun starts. WOW the themeing was just incredible - not wanting to give spoilers but there were real props that you would expect in a mine and that were used in the process of escaping! The second room, being the tomb, was equally atmospheric and well designed. There was a really good mix of puzzles - maths, physical, logic and the like. We escaped with 10 mins to spare (from a 90min timer) and had a few clues along the way that I felt were delivered in a very timely fashion - just when we started to panic! What we really loved was that both Jess and her husband (Graham i think?) chatted to us after the game for what seemed like ages about their love for Escape rooms and giving us recommendation for others we can try - you cant fake that kind of passion. We will be back as soon as for their other room, Pirate Ship and their new one Viking when it is open.

Just come back from the pirate escape room, didn’t know what to expect, but it was great. There were 8 of us, thought we had some brains between us but we got out with just 2 mins to spare. Very well thought out, carnt wait to come again and visit the tomb.

Not going to give much away, but completed the Pirate Ship this time. Loved it and can't wait for the soon-to-be-launched Viking game. Happy to be a guinea pig

This is the third escape room we’ve done and is probably the best - really enjoyable.

The room is really well done and the theme ties in nicely with the clues. Would 100% recommend.
