Family of five thoroughly enjoyed the Escape Shetland experience. Children (aged 6, 10 & 11) especially loved the challenge. We had a lovely welcome and would definitely recommend anyone to visit.

The four of us had an exciting and challenging time: it was very well planned and implemented, atmospheric, difficult, but logical. We would highly recommend it if you're visiting Shetland; we will probably bring visitors to it ourselves.

My daughter and I have tried 3 of these Escape Rooms before, and this is by far the best. The Cold War theme and attention to detail give you surprise after surprise and twists and turns to make a fantastic game. Excellent value for money.
