Corporate Team Exercise - Awesome Fun!
Sep 2021
We wanted to do something special for our companies 10th Birthday, something the whole team could do together and enjoy.

So glad we chose U-Escape. Jodie wan an excellent host and the whole experience from booking right through to to the actual tasks in the escape room was just amazing fun. The tasks are ingenious and we were all still trying to work stuff out (after we had escaped) in the pub afterwards.

Thoroughly recommend this for any business looking to do something different to get your team working together and thinking together laterally and logically.

Well-rounded, immersive and detailed
Sep 2021 • Couples
This was a truly excellent Escape Room experience! We booked it more or less randomly to escape a rainy afternoon in Bournemouth, and we were very pleasantly surprised.

To date, we have attended around 15-20 rooms across several different companies in several different cities, and we both agreed that this was one of the very best. The scene-setting by Jodie was very immersive and the atmosphere was maintained throughout with voiceover updates. The room was very well equipped and decorated, and the storyline was engaging enough to remain at the forefront of our minds.

Without wanting to give too much away, the room we attempted was a great balance of logic, code breaking, physicality, and thankfully without any of the more arbitrary "logic leaps" that we've found a little frustrating in rooms with other companies. The room was reasonably challenging for just the two of us, but the requested clues were subtle enough that we still felt like we could attempt and solve the puzzles ourselves.

As we are now reasonably well-seasoned room escapees, I feel I can say with confidence that overall this is easily one of the very best we've done. Thanks again to Jodie for being a fabulous host.

Excellent Escape
Aug 2021
Returned to U-Escape at the end of August for a works team building activity for the Phyco Surgeon room.

A few of us have completed escape rooms before and for a couple of our party this was their first Escape Room and this room was perfect, with a mix of easier and more challenging puzzles.

Jodie is a fabulous host, she sets the scene perfectly and leaves you to get stuck into the room with tips here and there in case you hit a metaphorical wall.

Everyone reported having a great time so we are looking forward to coming back and for the future rooms.

Thanks again Jodie!

Wow, don't hesitate and book it, fantastic
Aug 2021
Just wow!!! We completed the barber shop mystery escape room and it was fantastic, 4 of us took part in the game including my two teenage lads age 16 & 17. It was really well thought out, very authentic and the host was brilliant. Other than my 17 year old it was our first experience of an escape room. Compared to the one my 17 year old had completed previously in Chester this was another level. We enjoyed it so much we booked again in the same week of our holiday to do the Psycho surgeon escape. It was a completely different game and at a couple of points you were a little bit on edge but it was just brilliant, the theme was fantastic, the puzzles were so well though out, the layout and the set-up of the room was just excellent. Judy the host sets the scene really well and was fantastic. I would really recommend having a go at both of these escape rooms, they are both brilliant but if I had to pick my favourite it would be the Psycho surgeon escape but I am not taking anything away from the barber shop as that too was superb and one of my lads favourites! Well done Judy in setting this up, you should be very proud of the work done. I would highly recommend a visit to all, a must do if you are in the area.

Great theme and great puzzles
Aug 2021 • Friends
We had a fantastic time whilst trying to escape this room! There were some great tricks to find the next clues and everyone could get stuck in and give their ideas. Would love to say a massive thank you to our host as she waited for one of our freinds to turn up who was running late and we were the last people of the day - it was very kind of you!

Great puzzles, great theme and it was so much fun! Can't wait to try the new rooms coming soon!

One of the best escape rooms we've done.
Aug 2021 • Friends
Fantastic fun escape room. Tricky puzzles bit not impossible to work out. Really well designed and nicely presented. We did the Barber Shop Mystery as a group of 4 and it was great. The host was really enthusiastic and set the scene nicely. Felt really clean and Covid safe too. Thank you.

Fabulous family experience
Aug 2021 • Family
We had the most fabulous time at U-escape. We are a family of 5 with the kids ranging from 11 to 22 and this was a great experience all around. We managed to solve the puzzle and escape with 5 minutes to spare and only a few tips from the organiser, it was great! Looking forward to a new puzzle to be back.

10/10 experience
Jul 2021 • Couples
Me and my partner went not expecting too much and we’re both blown away by how much fun we had, the host was brilliant and had us laughing the whole time (even when we wasn’t supposed to) the game was amazingly thought out and not too difficult as well as having lots of different types of problem solving rather than just the same thing throughout. We will definitely be going back again! And would 100% recommend to everyone, as myself going in to this didn’t think it would be my cup of tea - how wrong I was!
