    Fun & different kids birthday party!
    We went for a 10th birthday party treat, seven kids altogether and they all really enjoyed it- the puzzles were challenging but fun esp as it was easy to ask for clues via WhatsApp and from staff in real life… and the kids loved the “magic” red button that blasted out music for a quick dance break! Birthday cake was also all sorted in advance, which took all the stress out of the day. Big special thanks to Phaedra for all her help & patience with a very noisy cheeky bunch! X

    Second time coming here, and even better than the first time!
    My second time doing an escape room here! I took my partner and my younger sister, and we all had an amazing time! Such an affordable fun thing to do in Brighton. I loved that it was suitable for my 9 year old sister too as not many escape rooms are family friendly, but this was perfect! The lady who looked after us throughout the session was the same one I had last time doing the Escape the 90’s, and I cannot sing their praises enough! So so helpful and lovely, and made the experience even better! Will definitely be coming back to do the third escape room!

    Great experience
    Booked Escape the Vault for my daughter's 13th Birthday party and her and her friends loved it! The host was lovely and really good with the girls and the whole booking experience was smooth and easy. Plus the red velvet birthday cake that was included in the package was a major hit with the teenagers! Highly recommended!

    Best Escape Room in Brighton
    I booked this as an exciting thing to do while family were visiting and we were all so impressed. The room was really cleverly designed and suited all ages which was perfect for our group as we ranged from 12-60. Our host Paige was amazing and made us feel so welcome and made the whole experience even more fun that we thought it would be.

    Spot on for a fun family experience!
    Absolutely fantastic! The lovely host Phaedra she was entertaining and enthusiastic, making the experience even more real . We took two boys age 13 and 10 and they thoroughly enjoyed. We escaped just in time which made it even more fun . It’s so worth the money! The little cafe where it is , is also quirky and interesting . It’s a happy place 😃😃😃😃😃.

    We escaped the Cell
    I made the booking for the wrong date and Phaedra was awesome about it. She was really friendly and was able to accommodate us anyway in the Cell escape room. Three of us had a great time trying to get out of the cell and although we weren't great at the challenge, Phaedra helped us and we had so much fun. This was good value for money and something I'd recommend to others.

    Spontaneous game with friends
    Easy booking, able to fit us in at short notice as a spontaneous booking after a few drinks. The pub/cafe where the game is based is great and we liked the quirky nerdy decor. The host, Sascha, was brilliant - very friendly and welcoming. We loved her sense of humour! The game itself could be tailored to the group’s ability but there were a few red herrings in the room which threw us. The disco button was fabulous! Overall great value for money and we’d visit again to do a different game.

    First time escapees!
    This was our first visit to an escape room and we did find it a little tricky. Paige was very helpful, especially towards the end when we were running out of time. It went so quickly. We would like to come back and do another room. Also quirky café with an excellent pint of Budvar.

    Birthday party
    My daughter's birthday party was there and They really enjoyed it. Theo was brilliant with them, let them explore and when they needed He helped them a bit. Highly recommended, the only thing in the Coffe shop when they had the birthday 🎂 the staff wasn't too helpful and nice They hardly wanted to give some plastic cups for water so They should be a bit more welcome with kids as it's part of the birthday party!
    Hi Nikoletta, thank you for your kind review - really pleased that Theo hosted you so brilliantly on Sunday. We always aim to make Escape the Vault suitable for all ages and experience levels and our team of hosts are trained to encourage and support familees and groups of children through the experience to make it more fun for everyone! I'm really sorry to hear about what happened in the Cafe afterwards with the cups. We'll be working with the team to make sure this doesn't happen again. And to apologies - I'd like to invite you back for a free hot chocolate the next time you're passing by. Simply call or send an email and I'll arrange the rest for you. Hope to welcome you again soon :) Will, Escape the Vault

    Great family fun
    Booked on the day during a day trip to Brighton. It's in a bar/ coffee shop so you can get a beer if you turn up a bit early. Very bubbly host in Sascha, explained everything well and good atmosphere generated. Good puzzle and had to get a couple of hints, which you do via WhatsApp which worked well. Took us just over half an hour to do, and all family members had a turn to help out. Good price as well when compared to other escape rooms. Would definitely do more of their rooms in the future.
    Thank you for your kind and thoughtful review. Really pleased to hear you enjoyed yourselves and found the experience great value. Look forward to welcoming you again the next time you're in Brighton :)

This was my 2nd escape room and my partners first. The host, Summer was very clear, concise and engaging when she told us the story.

The escape room was challenging but we're newbies and Summer kindly gave us an extra 5mins as we were close to completing the room.

It was alot of fun and we would definitely recommend it!

The bar has a nice friendly vibe too.

A great experience for me and my 18 year old daughter. Once we got underway we enjoyed the puzzles. A bit samey in that they were all unlocking things but good fun and out in plenty of time. Thank you Sascha too!

Thank you for your kind review Claire! Really pleased you enjoyed the experience and the puzzles, Escape the Cell only has one padlock - which we're a little proud of! Hope to welcome you along for a 'jail break' soon. Best wishes, Will

Did escape the vault as a pair, the puzzles were great and varied, nothing felt impossible and it was a good challenge! Theo was a star, and we grabbed a coffee and sandwich after which was also super!
