Visited with my Fiance on 11th March and did the Magician Room.

Would like to start by saying the entire place is very well themed throughout. Really beautifully done. Also very hot on hygiene which is very important at the moment. Nice to see precautions were taken.

Joey was a fantastic host. Very theatrical performance and really brought the whole thing to life.

The room itself was quite unique. Without giving too much away - we loved the addition of a character in the room. It really added to the atmosphere and he had a great sense of humor.

Puzzle wise, we found it quite different from other escape rooms. Although it was quite padlock heavy. But this didn't make it any less enjoyable.

My only suggestion would be to maybe introduce a small chalk board or white board into the room. So ideas or numbers can be written down.

We would definitely recommend this room and will hopefully be returning soon 😁

This is the third room I have done here and they have all been amazing! Really enjoyed it. We were a mixed team of people who have done escape rooms before and some first timers and everything really loved it. Good for those with experience and those new to it. Really friendly and fun staff who carry on the theme of the rooms in your brief and debrief which makes the experience even better. I would recommend these escape rooms to everyone. And I hope they expand / update their rooms so I can keep going as it really is an amazing set of rooms.

Joey and Marie were really great and made the experience far more immersive. The room was well thought out and made us think outside the box.

My work organised this as a company exercise. We did the head to head, which is 2 rooms identical and you go up against each other. Really well organised and challenging enough to keep you interested for the full experience. Would do again assuming they change the storyline.

Hi Nick C, Thank you for this great review! We're thrilled that you had such a great time at your work event, the head-to-head experience is an amazing way to challenge yourself and have some friendly competition with your co-workers! We have two other rooms that we think you'd love, The MacGuffin Workshop and The Fortune Teller. Looking forward to seeing you again soon! Many thanks, Joey General Manager

Love a good escape room! We went as a large group and were able to split and race against each other as there is 2 of the same room. The Magician was such a fun room, big shout out to Maisie for making even better!
