    Brilliant, book it and enjoy
    We visit today for our eldest daughter(23) birthday we were a group of 5 of mixed ages and we had a fantastic time. The escape room itself was really well planned, with a range of puzzles and something for all levels of ability. All the puzzle clue were to a high quality and you could see time is taken to set the room and keep everything in good order. The member of the staff we met today was so helpful, she really supported us and took the time to explain how this particular escape room worked and to answer questions. Would definitely recommend this escape room and can’t wait to come back to try out one of the other rooms they currently have on offer. 10/10 from us
    Thanks so much, glad you had a great time with both the room and your games master! We look forward to seeing you again soon :)

    Brilliant fun games
    As part of an escape room weekender in the area, our team of 4 escape room enthusiasts took on all three of the games here in one afternoon and had a brilliant time. They are all very different in themes - cheese theft, GCHQ spycraft and polar exploration - but all very similar in terms of high quality of production build and puzzle quality. Even with over 300 games under our belts between us, we felt challenged by these rooms and there were some puzzles that none of us had seen before. The passion and enthusiasm of the owners, who have built everything themselves, is really obvious and it was such fun to chat all things ER with our GMs. My personal favourite game was Cheese Rollers - really colourful, fun room with great mix of physical and mental challenges. But in Pole Position watching a team mate try to sweet talk a penguin has to be a highlight! Great games, which you can play in challenging or easier mode, so they are perfect for both experienced players and newbies or families. Highly recommend if you're in the area.
    Thank you so much Karen! It means a lot to us to hear such nice things about our games :) We hope to see you again!

    Polar Party!
    This was part of our family celebration weekend for my wife's 'big' birthday. A hugely fun and engaging hour doing Pole Position, the time flew by, all 5 of us contributed in some way and had a good laugh along the way. Highly recommended.
    Thanks so much, glad you all had an enjoyable experience working as a team together :)

    Get booking!
    This wasn't the first visit we've made here. Third! The staff are so helpful and massively recommend people looking to book an escape room. This is THE place to book. Cheaper than another local escape room place but not a cheaper option! Can't wait for our fourth room to try to escape from!
    Thanks so much Caroline, it makes us pretty happy when people enjoy coming back to try our different rooms, we promise we'll have more for you to try soon!

    One missing item but overall we were happy
    Was a fantastic escape room. Me and my partner done operation foresight and were told before we went in that it wasn't an easy one and we may struggle because there was only 2 of us. We struggled a little and then needed to ask for 2 hints but we were told that they were unlimited anyways. Sarah was our host and when we had 5 mins left she had to come in to the room to help us. The only downside is that she had to help us because we were missing the white board pen that was needed. Because we didn't have the whiteboard pen we thought that the board was just for decoration or to memorise 😅 overall was very good and will hopefully be back. We have definitely had worse experiences at other places

    Best escape room experience in Cheltenham
    The team at Escape Rooms Cheltenham are absolutely lovely, really friendly, and very good at setting the mood for the escape room. We had Damian take us through Pole Position with a great intro, and the actual room had a great array of puzzles. High standard of props, and a really fun room. Thanks team, we'll definitely be back!

We had an very enjoyable time doing the "Our Finest Hour" escape room and completed it in 54 minutes, our Games Master was Romilly and she was very helpful. I would definitely recommend this escape room and look to try more.

Excellent time playing 3 of the games at Escape rooms Cheltenham today - pole position, operation foresight and cheese robbers. All really good, solid games with some fun and unusual puzzles. We are experienced escapers and enjoyed all of the rooms. Our Games Master, Zoey, really added to that. She was enthusiastic about all the games and was spot on when to give hints or not. Thank you for a great day!

We came for one room and stayed for another! Both rooms were wonderfully designed and were properly challenging. John was really helpful and is a great addition to ERC; patience of a saint when we went so wrong and had to explain things over and over! Will absolutely be back.
