    Great time
    Had a great time doing axe throwing. Sam was our instructor who made it really fun and helped us get the technique right. We then booked to do the interactive darts the next day. Again a lot of fun. Good value for money.
    Thank you for taking the time to leave a review, we will pass on your feedback to Sam. Kind regards WAX Activity Bar Team

    Great fun and lots of puzzles!
    Visited as a family whilst on holiday and did the Mine escape room. It was good overall with lots of different puzzles which made us think. Only needed a few clues. My only negative remark would be after we completed the room it was over very quickly and we left. Other escape rooms we’ve been to, the Gamesmaster has gone through the room with us and discussed the puzzles etc and done a team photo but that wasn’t offered which was a shame. We like getting sent a team photo afterwards, so perhaps this is something you should consider implementing as most escape rooms do this. Overall we had a great time and would recommend!
    Hi There, Thanks for your feedback, we will look into adding team photos to the experience, hopefully we will see you again soon for one of our other activities! Kind regards WAX Activity Bar Team

    Darts
    We only did the darts but it was extremely fun. I would definitely recommend this as it was only £12 for 2 for an hour, that’s very good seeing that my local interactive darts are £120! Great drinks also with an excellent location and the staff were lovely. Go if you’re in Newquay.
    Thanks for your review. We are thrilled you found our prices fair, pop back to see us again soon (it sounds like it might be cheaper to drive down here for the weekend than head to your local) Kind regards WAX Activity Bar Team

    Very Enjoyable
    We went along on Fathers day and they had an offer on of a free pint for all. The Axe throwing was fun and took a little while to get the hang of but they allow you time to get used to the throwing before the game started. Staff were friendly and they help with the rules of the game. Will definitely go back again.

    Top place and top laughs.
    We had a blast here. Came on a quiet moment looking for something to pass the time. Just kept coming back. We played darts multiple times and tried the prison escape room - we never made it out and we was so close - but that’s part of the fun. We would recommend this place for anyone - family’s or friends or even alone. Naughty Sam and the whole team here were welcoming and funny and relaxed. It’s a lovely atmosphere and just good fun. Get yourselves in and give it a go.

    You ain't Thor but you could be
    Axe throwing was a fantastic time and interactive darts are a good easy background game amongst friends. The team were really helpful for accommodating to us being a little late and a person down than booked. Supervisor Sam gave us some great tips and advice for axe throwing and we were hitting the mark immediately. He provided some great games to a perfect soundtrack. 100% will be back, we all loved it.

We’ve visited WAX on numerous occasions for Darts, Escape Room and Axe Throwing and it’s always been a pleasant and fun time. However, we went on Saturday 27th for my son’s 15th birthday to play darts and the whole experience seemed a bit rushed and wasn’t as enjoyable. We were put on the first board as soon as you walk through the door but they were setting up for a birthday party on the tables next to us so we were unable to sit anywhere or put our coats, bags and drinks etc down. A couple of times we were told to move as part of our group kept using the chairs. We were all squashed into the corner with no tables or nowhere to sit which made it quite difficult with a group of 6 to play without getting in the way of each other. I hate to leave bad reviews but maybe this needs reevaluating in future so others don’t experience the same issue.

Let's get things straight. This bar is classy, it's not no 2 penny f*ck. The staff are polite and friendly, the games are good and not rushed. Drinks are fresh, and a wide selection of lesser known brands. Cocktails are great. 2nd time visiting very enjoyable. Will visit again soon.

Went axe throwing with the family. It was fun set of games and the member of staff that gave us the instructions and set out the games was nice and friendly. We did not staff for drinks afterwards, but the bar looked nice although pretty quiet.

I made a mistake with my online booking. The lady who was working behind the bar sorted it all out with ease. I had no need to worry. Customer service was excellent. Interactive darts was great for adults and 12 year olds! I would recommend. Building was modern and clean.

A fun cousin day out, we did the zombie escape room which was really fun and made us all think hard, the layout was great, the only downside which the guy who worked their also pointed out to us when we finished was that one of the areas wasn't reset properly so instead of finding a code to open the door to get to the next section it was already unlocked, might sound like an advantage but it really wasn't as you are supposed to find clues to unlock each room, instead we wasted alot of time in the wrong room trying to unlock padlocks in the previous room. Because of that I belive that was the reason we ran out of time in the last few seconds.

A huge thank you to the staff who looked after the team and some of our students on a residential trip. Myself, Michaela and our two students thoroughly enjoyed the escape room!
We had two dart boards for the interactive darts and the staff were very friendly and accommodating.
I would love to return to this brilliant establishment
