Pig Face was most disappointed that you made your escape, the little ones would've made such great pets... Thanks for making the effort to stop by with a review and it's most awesome to hear from happy albeit terrified customers.

Visited Hell in a Cell with my team from work and whilst being an absolutely terrifying experience from start to finish, we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Would absolutely recommend this to anyone.

Don't want to reveal too much but it was super entertaining (read: terrifying) and a great escape room for horror aficionados. Went with a couple horror-haters but Hell in a Cell changed their minds too, as it was quite challenging. WEAR CLOTHES YOU'RE NOT SCARED...More

Hey thanks Gopika, really pleased you rate us up there above some of the other local operators. Yes Pig Face's lair isn't the cleanest of places to hang out is it. Appreciate you stopping by with a review and sharing the experience.
