    When can I re book
    Joey was spot on! He made the youngsters feel comfortable and got them excited. A detailed description of the tasks and the rules where given by joey prior to starting and the whole experience was exciting from start to finish! Highly recommend!

    The Western Job is the best room at The Real Escapes!
    Visited 16/03/23 “The Western Job” room hosted by Mia In a group of 2, was able to accomplish the room with all tasks. Both my partner and I who have done around 6 escape rooms now agree this was a great one! great theming and atmosphere in the room, the task were all really enjoyable with a good level of difficultly. although the room is 2-6 i would imagine anymore than 4 in the room would be a bit overkill, there is definitely enough space but there is usually only 1 task to be working on at any given time. The introduction, hints and chats after the experience were really good and Mia’s service really made the experience great! the service from all the hosts here always impress! Room ranking at The Real Escape: 1. The Western Job 2. Chamber of The Deep 3. Dr Ryddle’s Memories No disrespect to The Real Escape but I do have to say I personally prefer the rooms across the road at Other World Escapes PURELY because of the quality of the rooms itself (host service is equally as good at both) but The Western Job is just just as good as most available at Other World Escapes! Thank you Mia!

    Chamber of the Deep
    Had a great time at the Chamber of the Deep. Iris was really helpful with the set up and occasionally gave us some useful pointers. Called in advance to check they were happy for 8 month old baby in a sling carrier to join. He was very happy and even the initial briefing video wasn't loud.

    Western room
    This was our third escape room booked at The Real escape. We did the new Western room. It was in a good way a little more challenging than the other rooms but we really enjoyed it. Iris and Lottie were really friendly and helpful. We made it through with only one hint which was good. Would defo reconmend this room. We liked the twist at the end too.

    Smallest rooms are most exciting!
    We did the Mission 60 room and it was very good! A huge range of puzzles for you to explore, and me and my friend managed to do quite well. The hints provided were very good and the GamesMaster that we had (her name was Iris, wonderful job btw!) was so helpful. We will definitely be coming back to try out all the other rooms :)

    GREAT Mission 60 Experience
    Very enjoyable experience - Iris was lovely and made my friends and I comfortable for our first escape room experience. Mission 60 was great for first timers, I would highly recommend. Just make sure you look around. It’s a small room but you can still miss key things - thank you Iris for helping us with our one slip up!!

    Chamber of the Deep
    Went to the Chamber of the Deep. A really fun experience, the Games Master (Iris) was amazing as well! I especially liked how in this room the items that were just decorations were clearly labeled, so you’re not left guessing whether this is a part of the puzzle or not.

The escape room was fairly challenging with an amazing room and exciting objects. I would definitely recommend!! Heather was a great host and supported us when needed - we loved having her. We will definitely be going back for another experience as we still have two rooms to explore :)

The whole experience was brilliant from start to finish, Iris was friendly, funny, knowledgable and knew just the right time to help us with the odd hint. We really enjoyed the experience which was clever and challenging and really made you have to use your Brain, we will be going back to try another room for sure.

I have never done an escape room before so was a little apprehensive before hand. This was completely unfounded. We did the room mission 60 aimed at 2 to 3 people and had a riot, trying to sort out the problems. Heather are guide was very friendly, and put us at ease though our the who game. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a little something to do that is different.
