      OUTBREAK WAS AMAZING!
      I recently returned to 404 Escape to try there new Outbreak room and I have to say I was not disappointed! It was not your typical escape room as there was 0 padlocks in the game which was very refreshing and the addition of an actor really helped immerse us in the scenario. James, Our games master, was extremely accommodating as a member of our party is hard of hearing so he spoke all the voice lines in order to ensure our teammate could lip read the dialogue. Overall the experience was extremely enjoyable and I will 100% be recommending this room to my friends and family. Can’t wait to come back once The Clown opens!!!

      My son and I had a good time. Somewhat tricky but we did it lol. I was in Birmingham to watch a football match but we killed some time here. The owner was a great guy and good luck to him. Will go back again.

      We all Had a thrill
      It was really good thrill & scare. We enjoyed it very much so. We was thinking that after going in the tunnel it would be another room. That would have been so fun. But overall had a fab time, it was quite dear in price wouldnt do it so often as we liked because of that reason.

    Survival - A bit disappointing. We paid (£115, had a discount code should have been £124) which is a lot but decided to go for it based on it being 90 mins and good reviews. There were multiple rooms but the set was nothing special. The whole thing is in the dark and you are given one light, which just became really annoying as only one person at a time could look for clues. Maybe it was to make it more challenging but it just became annoying that 1 person was doing something and the other 3 just stood there. Also other than maybe a couple of unexpected jumps it wasn’t very scary at all compared to others we have done. We also asked for a clue after getting stuck, we were given the part we had already worked out. We asked for another a while later after moving no further and we were given the same clue again. There are 6 rooms but there is only really one clue per room, not the most creative and as mentioned nothing special on the set. Unfortunately there are definitely better options out there.

    My party and I were greeted upon arrival by our wonderful host, I think his name was James. He took all the Covid precautions which made us all feel comfortable as we are very worried about the whole pandemic.

    We where then given the safety briefing before been lead to the room. Once we where in it only got better. We where absolutely terrified by the NPC in the room and the room as a whole.

    The decoration and atmosphere was amazing. After we escaped, in only 69 minutes, we where once again greeted by the host and led to the lounge. The host was on top form again and we event got a nice prize. 10/10 experience, Would 100% recommend.

    Will be back soon to try resistance!

    As a family of 5, we have completed a number of escape rooms around the UK but I have to say this has been our best experience. Everything from being blindfolded at the start of the game to the puzzles was brilliant and thought out. Heads up, I would be a fan of horror to this game! We did like the fact that the game is 90 minutes long as you feel you are getting real value for money but that time does go fast when you are having fun.

    James is a great host and I can't wait for the new game to be built so that we can come back and conquer it.

    Tired, lack lustre and simple. Advertised as a 5 star difficulty horror themed room with few padlocks, we didn't rush through by any means and were done in 41 minutes. We counted 7 puzzles to complete in total with 3 padlock style puzzles. Naz was a welcoming host but frankly having an NPC ruined the experience as it broke the atmosphere. There is no story, just random 'scary' posters and props, which makes you wonder what you are trying to achieve when starting the room. Loud music in the room made no sense and couldn't hear the other people. Traps actually hurt too, be warned. You'd be far better spending the 10 extras minutes travelling into central Birmingham and getting a far better crafted escape experience. Price is extortionate for the quality of this escape room, I'd personally advise to avoid.

    I was lucky enough to visit 404 escape today and play my first escape room and let's just say it did not disappoint. The staff were welcoming and friendly, the room was well thought out and really made me feel like it was real. I enjoyed my experience immensely and would definitely recommend 404 escape to anyone looking for a fun, exciting, and thrilling day out. Thankyou so much to my host Naz, the excitement throughout the delivery of your brief and your welcoming smile made me feel at ease, so much so I almost forgot she was about to lock me in a room. I cannot wait to play another escape room here.

    James the game master was fantastic, each room was challenging and the constant fright of the NPC put you on edge all the time. Finished in 76 minutes with quite a few clues but left feeling ecstatic. Would recommend to anyone!

    this game was SO COOL. We played Survival and it was insane. We ended up chickening out once we found out we had to split up, (its SO SCARY,) but James was super nice and walked us through the rest of the room!! Its VERY physically involved, crawling and falling through props was super duper fun! ive never had an escape room so involved, and ive worked in 2 other escape room companies in america. These are god tier rooms and we're definitely going to be back soon to play the covid-19 one!

    Myself, my partner and my cousin's did the survival escape room on Friday it was a really fun but scary experience.
    Would highly recommend this escape room, it's one of the best ones we've done so far.
    Bethe our host was excellent and gave me a few frights throughout the game.
    The game itself was well thought out and was well balanced timewise, we felt we were progressing at a steady pace.
    We managed to escape at 63 minutes! Very proud of ourselves for this :)
    Overall a great escape room with a decent storyline, be prepared for a few frights throughout!

    Survival was incredible, as a person who played around 15-20 rooms and also works in an escape room, I would recommend this room.

    We escaped within 75 minutes and the room was challenging. We all loved it.

    Special thanks to John who made the experience even scarier upon request.

    We want to come back and play this room again, as well as play the hospital theme they have.

    Having done most escape rooms in Birmingham this has to be up there with the best. We had not heard of anyone having done this room before so we did not have high expectations...we were wrong. The experience as a whole was immersive and at time had four grown men "shook". The atmosphere that was created meant that completing the puzzles were exciting.

    The puzzles themselves had a a lot of variety and involved using different skills. Some of the puzzles involved elements that we had never come across before which kept us on our toes. Occasionally during escape room you may feel like you're either making no process or are so far ahead that you want to slow down to feel like you're getting value for money. This was not the case here. The pacing of the game was spot on especially if going for the 60min challenge and each puzzle was linked to the underlying story of the room.

    All in all it was a great experience. We will be back for more.
