    Great team event!
    Sian and Jaycee made us feel very welcome for our corporate team outing. We had a group of 8 split between Aladdin and Finest Hour rooms. Everyone had a great time and was a great way for building teams without the old cliche activities of old. Would definitely come again!
    Hi Rich! Thank you for taking the time to leave us some feedback. We're so pleased to hear you had a 5* experience with us! Sian and Jaycee are both great, they love stepping into the characters and are both great with our guests so we're glad that comes across! It is a great activity for team building, get to work together and see each other in a different environment, hope you're all closer and work better together for it! We hope to see you again for another adventure!

    Excellent place and service.
    We had Jaycee as our host and they were so friendly and awesome. We did the finest hour escape room which is actually very challenging, especially with just 2 of us, but we did get out with 23 seconds to spare. I also had my assistance dog with me, who they were happy to allow in with me, but because of space they were also happy to look after him, so he enjoyed an hour off duty whilst they gave him snuggles and love. Was nicely wheelchair accessible and they have an accessible toilet too. Excellent service. Especially Jaycee, give them a raise 😉.
    Hi There! Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us such a lovely review! Congrats on getting out of Our Finest Hour, the boffins at HQ would be proud! We strive to be as accommodating as possible and I'm glad you felt we were for you! Spending an hour with your assistance dog was definitely not a hardship, you're all welcome back any time! We will pass the feedback on to Jaycee, they do love stepping into a different character and I'm glad they could make the experience even better! We hope to see you again for another adventure soon!

    Awesome night out! Very accessible
    A great Escape Room, elevated by a really witty host. One of our party is a part-time wheelchair user. Our host JC made our experience so much more accessible by giving us a chair in the room for if she needed to sit down, as her wheelchair would've been a tight squeeze. Can recommend, especially if all the staff are as nice as the one we had.
    Hi There! Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We're so pleased you had a 5* experience with us. Jaycee is a great host and does love stepping into another character, their wit does bring the character to life! We're glad that you felt we accommodated your friend well, we strive to make everyone feel welcome and have a great experience with us. We hope to see you again soon for another adventure!

    Great staff poor escape room
    The host JC was fantastic, seemed like he was at home with his role within his job! The downside being the room did not have the value for money feel. Often a huge delay in putting props in places and the next area opening making you feel like you’ve not solved it until the host would give you a hint letting you know you in fact did get it right in the first place! Would go again but not for £30pp
    Hi There! Thank you for taking the time to leave us some feedback! We're disappointed to hear that you didn't have a 5* experience with us, as that's what we always aim for. JC is a great host and they do really step into the character fantastically. We'd love to redeem ourselves and give you that 5* experience. We do currently have an offer on for 10% off any booking before 12pm and if you'd like to give us an email on cheltenham@escapehunt.com we would be happy to offer a discounted game for another time. We hope to hear from you soon!

    Great fun trying and failing, to escape!
    Well that was fun!! We decided to tackle “The Finest Hour” which was entertainingly hard! If it had been real life, Churchill would be dead! Really good clues, and excellent hosting by JC. Wanted to go straight back in and try again! Will go for an easier one next time! Very friendly staff, great location, a great way to spend an hour. Will be back.
    Hi Louise! Thank you for taking the time to leave us such a lovely 5* review! We're so happy to hear that you had such a great time playing Our Finest Hour! We have to agree that JC is a wonderful host! We have passed your lovely words on to them and we all look forward to having you back again soon for another adventure! Perhaps this time you could try your hand at trying to save the Mad Hatter from the Queen of Hearts in Alice in Puzzleland!

    It was so good we had to go back and do another one!
    This was sooo much fun, we booked to do the Aladdin cave one and our magic genie was so much fun. The game wasn’t that difficult to do and was awesome as a starter to the whole experience. In fact, our group loved it soo much, we booked to do another one straight after and did the dr who one. This was a lot more tricky and we needed guidance on this one as objectives were not immediately apparent in some tasks but was still fun nonetheless.
    Good evening Tasha, We are glad that you had a good time at escape hunt and enjoyed not one but two rooms. We appreciate the feedback and hope to see you soon for another escape room. Regards, The escape hunt team

    Brilliant first time at VR game
    I booked a Survival VR game fir myself and 3 friends. We are all in our 50’s and never done this before. We met Luke our game’s master, who was fantastically patient and calm with us. He explained everything and helped us through the questions and how to work the controls. Mine weren’t working but Luke sorted then out. We were quite useless at our car game but we had lots of fun and laughed so much. It made our weekend. Thanks Luke. We will be back at some point
    Hi there! Thanks a lot for taking the time to leave us such a lovely review! We especially love hearing about out excellent Games Masters. We're sorry to hear there was some technical difficulty but glad you had a 5* experience anyway

    Excellent fun
    We had a fantastic time Doing the Alice in puzzleland escape room. Was greeted quickly on arrival and was able to purchase cocktails. Then the lovely Meg took us thru and was our games master. She kept in character thru the escape room room and was full of life and smiles :)
    We're really happy to hear Meg was able to give you such a great experience! We're also grateful that you did not feel the need to provide the Cheshire Cat with any of your cocktails, it makes him quite the menace! Thank you for taking the time to leave us such a lovely review, we hope to see you again soon!

    Lost in wonderland
    We had luke as our games master and he was really good, explained things perfectly. I love these escape rooms and have done them a number of times. I did this room with my friends and we did manage to escape with only 2 clues this was the Alice in wonderland room. Now I would give it 5 stars but it is extremely expensive and I wish they had a countdown clock in there so we knew what time we had left: I do feel some of the room does need some tlc, some bits are faded and look worn and then there’s bits that come off easily that are broken, so the room itself and the bits in it do need looking after. It is also really dark in there especially at some points which isn’t always easy. Overall a brilliant time we had but I feel a few improvements need to be made and maybe be a little less expsenive.
    Hi There, firstly, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review! We're glad to hear that Luke was such a wonderful games master and that he explained things well for you and your team! Secondly, I would like to apologise that the room was not up to expectation. As you are probably aware, these rooms do go through wear and tear and we do try our best to keep them in as good of a condition as we can, and I would like to apologise that some things were not up to the high standard we have Escape Hunt. Thank you for making us aware of these issues and we will be working to rectify this for the future. If you would like to discuss this further with us, please do contact us at cheltenham@escapehunt.com and we will be happy to discuss this further with you.

I went with one other friend, and did the Alice in Puzzleland room. The experience was completely immersive, with all the puzzles being a bit of a brain-scratcher but overall really fun to solve.

This was booked a month before as part of hen night celebrations and despite having a conformation email to say we had booked and wed payed extra for the hen party escape experience - the group was turned away as the the venue had double booked...a great escape room around the corner brought staff in especially for us and after a wait 7 of the group were able to do an escape room ...the rest of us were unable to ....have to say very disappointed with this venue ...very nearly spoilt the whole evening ! Refusing to refund straight away means we have to wait for our money back and had to stretch our budget on the evening for those who could do an escape room
