Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

As a party of 7 we had a great time trying to find the murder weapon, we just didn't quite make it even though Agent Sportie Spies helped us at the end. We loved her enthusiasm and will certainly be booking again in the future. Thank you.

Played as a team of 2, for Breaking the Law with our amazing games master Sporty Spyz.
Firstly the game itself was fun, very challenging and very well decorated. Must say it was one of the harder escape rooms we have done having played a fair few previously. The puzzles themselves were very fun and imaginative.
As we said to our GM, with out spoiling anything, target practice was our least favourite part. But that didnt take from the overall great experience we had playing!
Sporty Spyz, was engaging, great explaining the game and very fun to chat with and gave great clues whenever we was stuck! She KNEW when and when not to give clues which made the game even more fun, so great work to them and hoping we have Sporty Spyz in our next game.
Overall, comparing other local escape rooms such as Houdini's, I feel Exciting Escapes does it better it everyway!

Came to play following recommendations from other escape room people. Great game and fun hosts!

Played this weekend and all had a great time!

Our host - Ryan was friendly and helpful in making sure we enjoyed and managed to escape within the time frame!

Would be nice to find easier, free parking but it’s a very minor thing that didn’t effect our game!

Thank you very much for this review! I'm really pleased you had a good time with us and "one of our favourites in the area" is very high praise! Southampton is a very competitive area for escape rooms so thank you again for the lovely review. Thank you also for the kind words about Ryan, I've passed them on and he was very pleased to read them :D

We took our 11 year old grandson for a half term treat.
From the door opening to our leaving, we had a great time. On a practical level everything was well explained before hand. Once locked in our room we had a wonderful time working out the many clues …. And our grandson was able to work out some of the clues, to his great excitement and they were all varied with some authentic props.
Did we escape, yes, thankfully we did, but were very grateful to the accommodating Ryan who made sure we completed our task, to our grandson’s delight.
We hadn’t been before to an escape but we will certainly go again and really recommend if you are looking for something to do with a group of friends or as a really great experience for any teenagers in your life to encourage them away from their screens. Thanks Ryan, good luck with the degree and thanks for making sure we had such a good time.

A very lovely review, thank you very much! Team Magikarp Gang was a delight to host; it was all smiles from start to finish. We adore it when the adult agents are as committed to the experience as younger agents, It was truly Ryan's pleasure to run your game. I've shown him this review so he could see the delightful things you've said and he was really appreciative, thank you. We would love to have you back for another mission any time!

We did the Breaking The Law escape room and it was brilliant! Lots of great interlinking puzzles, enough for us to be working on two at a time at some points. Had some great quirky puzzles we've not seen anywhere else. Overall the room was hard enough to get a sense of achievement but not so difficult that it was impossible. We'll definitely be back to try out some of their other rooms!

Really fun time and great staff thanks agent jess. Did the hidden past adventure which was really good only problem I'd say is the floor board puzzle trying not to spoil to much.

Thank for the review! That puzzle you mention can be tough but I'm glad you enjoyed yourselves! I've let jess know you've thanked her :)
