    Brilliant.
    Having done a few Escape Rooms before and having a recommendation from a friend to try the Brainyaxe one we got this booked up. This one was cracking from start to finish. Great welcome from Rick, quickly briefed then right into it. That was one of the fastest 54 minutes I've had in a long time! The puzzles were excellent, going from one or two things clicking quite quickly, to standing staring into space while the gears in the brain smoked. All the while getting excellent guidance from "the voice" on the radio when we needed it. Lots of laughs, lots of face palms at missing obvious things when we had the hindsight. Would wholeheartedly recommend that from newbies to Escape Rooms to seasoned veterans, you should give this a go! PLUS it's a veteran run business, so support it anyway!! Cheers Rick, we'll be back when you concoct your next room!
    Thanks so much for a cracking review 😉 we are blushing especially when we are a small independent business 😊 so glad you all enjoyed our room 🤟 and we can't wait to welcome you back for your next challenge 👍

    Brilliant fun
    Axe throwing was brilliant fun and a great experience for adults and my 15 year old. Rick (coach) was very friendly, informative and made the experience fun. Would definitely recommend and will be back soon to try the Escape Room and Shooting. Thank you Brainyaxe!

    Something EVERYONE should try!!!
    We went for axe throwing as a date day/night for something different to do. My husband had been before but I was a bit apprehensive as I honestly cannot throw to save myself so adding an axe into the equation gave me the absolute fear but Rick was such a great patient and informative Instructor that my fears were quickly quashed. We honestly had an amazing time and will definitely be back at some point. If you're considering going then this is your sign to just book it, it's an experience that should be enjoyed by all!
    Thanks so much for your review 😊 we love hearing that guests that may feel a little apprehensive about axe throwing have felt safe and relaxed whilst with us ensuring everyone enjoys this amazing sport 👌 We look forward to welcoming you back again soon for some more fun 😀

    Great day out
    We completed the escape room and axe throwing here and it was such a great day out. Rick was a great teacher for the axe throwing and even though our technique wasn’t great, he coached us through it really well. The escape room was also very well thought out and challenging. It was great for a group but would also be good for 2 people as well. We were there for my brothers birthday as a group of four. It was an ideal activity for the group. We will definitely be back to do it again and also try the other activities that are available!
    Thanks for your review ⭐️ we really appreciate it and means so much to us that our guests have the best time we can give them 😀 and we look forward to welcoming you back again for some more fun soon 🔫🔪🪓🔐

    First escape room experience
    Our first escape room and although we didn’t quite solve it all in time, it was really fun and fast paced puzzling. My brain worked harder than it has in years! Really enjoyed it and host was great. Shooting games were fun too, like a video game with rifles and lots of different games to try. Sadly can’t do the escape room again but very enjoyable.
    Thanks for your review 👌 we are so glad you enjoyed your time with us and for your 1st ever escape room you did super work 👍 we hope to see you again when our room changes 😉

Brilliant fun and so well managed. Would thoroughly recommend! Wasn’t sure I’d manage the axe throwing and actually surprised myself by doing quite well. Not about strength or power at all so anyone can do this.

my partner and I received the axe and knife throwing taster as a xmas present… it was AMAZING. It was something different and unique to try as a date. the gentleman (can’t remember his name 🙈) was very informative and especially helpful with getting out techniques and accuracy correct. We will definitely be back to try the escape room and everything else brainyaxe has to offer!!!!

We had a great time! Well thought out linear room, clever puzzles, kept us busy for the whole time we were in. The GM/owner was lovely too. If we were local we'd be back for axe throwing and knife tossing. Maybe next time. Thank you for a great morning

Me and my boyfriend had a great time at Brainiaxe yesterday for my birthday! Rick was a great instructor and gave us really good pointers to help us perfect our axe and knife throwing skills and taught us some very interesting things about the sports. This was a really fun experience and we will definitely be back, thanks again!

Amazing experience and great value for money. We both had the best time and learned so much. Rick was a great coach. He gave clear direction and shared the history of axe and knife throwing. We even got to throw ninja cards which were really cool. Safe environment and great atmosphere. We can't wait to book again.

Our first escape room experience today was awesome. We visited with our son and although we didn't solve all of the clues in time it was a brilliant experience. Rick was great at setting the scene and getting us prepped as agents. Would highly recommend for families or a group of friends.

Thanks Agent Rick
