Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My wife booked this for my birthday as a surprise. I am a massive Zombie fan and this was a great 'random' surprise in the heart of Ely that I did not know even existed all that time.

We played the VR Zombies together and had a blast. I can not remember how long the whole experience was as we were too immeresed to norice but I know for a fact that I wished it was longer even though by the end i was sweating buckets.

This is a great idea for fun, specially as you can have more than 2 players. I hope they do some extra Zombie levels, I would def come again if so!!!

Did the Jungle Quest VR Escape Room with my 12yr old daughter and we loved it! We have done escape rooms before so the puzzle solving aspect wasn’t too hard for us and we quickly got a feel of what we needed to do. The game play is excellent and it really is an immersive experience! People that have played the VR or computer games will probably get the hang of it more quickly but the tutorial is straight forward so expect novices could pick it up too. The Jungle Quest game wasn’t too difficult in terms of the puzzle rating so it’s a good entry level for those not used to either computer games or escape rooms.

We would both thoroughly recommend as something new and different to try! My daughter is going back soon to try one of the other VR shooting games (one of the premium titles) with her friend!

It was a pleasure to welcome you both and I'm glad you had a good time! You did really well, working as a team to complete the escape room, despite being distracted by all the beautiful animals in Jungle Quest! You'll have to come back and try a harder one :) Also great to see you again today for several rounds of 'Shmooter' - your daughter is a sharpshooter!

My husband and two sons had a fantastic time at The Mind Factory recently. Was well organised and lots of fun, judging by the fact they talked of little else for the rest of the evening! Would definitely recommend.

Absolutely fantastic experience! Everyone there was so helpful and made for a wonderful time.
The team at the mind factory were very careful and followed covid procedures amazingly allowing to fully immerse ourselves into the game,
Hope everyone has the chance to go at some point, I highly recommend Shmooter :)

Have just done the premium experience with my boyfriend and it was amazing. The quality is superb - a lot more immersive and realistic than the gear we have at home. Looking forward to our next visit!!
