    Strangest thing
    I completed the From Beyond room. The theme is abandoned science base with a The Thing/Stranger Things-esqe vibe. Despite the source of inspiration, this is not a horror room (there's no jump scares), but if you'd find a plastic skeleton scary maybe avoid this room. I've done a fair few escape rooms and found this one enjoyable, the set quality and story line is great. There was a couple of puzzle types that I haven't seen in any of the other escape rooms, which was a good challenge. I will say pick your teammates carefully, it's really difficult to hear important information when you're with people who decide to talk over the audio clues. I look forward to trying out the other rooms run by this company.

    Pandora's heist - amazing!
    The experience was thoroughly enjoyable from start to finish. Grace was amazing - she explained everything brilliantly and gave us useful hints when needed! Would recommend for anyone who is looking to do something fun, engaging and exciting with friends/family. Can't wait to try out the other room they have!

    Potions and Perils at Elusion Rooms Southampton
    Brilliant experience… great atmosphere that was tied together by our host, Drew. This was my first escape room, so I’m not sure how it compares with others, but as an event, it was awesome. Great backstory, challenging puzzles, immersive design. We’re definitely going back to do the rest of their offerings.

    Definitely recommend
    Such a good experience! We did From Beyond as we’re all Stranger Things fans and it was so much fun! We did have to ask for a few hints along the way but it was a good level of tricky and fun. We will definitely be returning to tackle another room. Our guide Eve was lovely and super friendly! Thanks for an awesome experience.

    Great staff, great rooms
    Great experience! Cassandra (our host witch) was engaging and helpful as we did the Perils and Potions room. Recommend this to anyone and as with two first timers this was a great introduction to how good an escape room can be. Thanks!

    Wish I could come back tomorrow
    We had a fantastic time doing the 7 Sins room. Really made to feel comfortable, considering I'd never done one before I was expecting to find it much more nerve wrecking. Xandy (I'm sorry if thats the wrong spelling) was incredibly helpful and made us really comfortable with the whole experience. Great date night experience

    Escaped the potion shop!
    Amazing first escape room! Really great attention to detail in all the various spaces, and some pretty great puzzles. Totally worth it, would absolutely go again. Cannot recommend highly enough! Also, Drew was awesome - great character actor and really made my first escape room experience all the more memorable.

    Excellent escape room
    Excellently planned and run as an experience. Demanding, but the puzzles were well balanced for us with a mix of "why is this difficult?" that meant everyone in our group was able to contribute and help. Good immersion and some real effort put into scene-setting and set-dressing. Game control was light-touch but nudged us gently on a couple of occasions, such as to point out successes we'd missed. Thoroughly enjoyed and would recommend highly.

    Fab family fun
    We had so much fun doing the Potions and Peril escape room. Drew, the host, was wonderful. My 7 and 9 year olds were able to do just about everything,. Brilliant family fun. Planning to go back and do another room with Elusion asap.

It's absolutely trash, poor hygiene in the toilets and moldy pumpkins in the window display... They didnt have our booking and we sat 10 minutes outside facing the urinals of the gents toilets. Poor service, some rude staff who didnt come and offer to take our drink order the whole 2 hrs we were there !!!. Staff vaping at the bottom of the stairs. Cocktails were very below expectations and had better ones in the slug and Lettuce. All very musty smelling and very expensive for a terrible evening. Not the experience we had expected !!!. Do you want me to carry on.

We've just walked out of the new potions and perils escape room. It's the first time we've ever done one and it was AMAZING. From the thematic decor to the ambient music and incredible interactivity, we had an incredible time. It was physically as well as intellectually challenging, funny, exciting and exhilarating; we left buzzing! I don't want to spoil the surprise - if we'd read reviews that gave away some of the surprising touches we'd have been less awed, so I won't, but suffice to say it was entirely up our dark and dingy alleyway!

This experience was for our eleven year daughter's birthday. We selected the Peril & Potions escape room and it was brilliant. Great concept, great experience. Would highly recommend this experience and will definitely book one of the adult escape rooms in the future

I sent my daughter in with a couple of friends
they had the best time ever even though they were so scared and excited at the same time, the way the staff guided them was so professional that they were at ease and really enjoying it within moments of being there....WOW REALLY RECOMMEND THIS...

We have just spent the evening at Elusion escape rooms completing their potions and peril escape room. Our team consisted of myself and my husband and our two sons, aged 15 and 13.

We are well acquainted with escape rooms and the boys love for us to do one during the holidays.

Elusion escape rooms do not disappoint. As a family this is the third of their rooms we have completed. The room is fantastically set and there are a good mix of puzzles for everyone to get involved in. We also liked that this room is a little different in terms of the puzzles and goals.

The magical theme was well suited to this time of year, but would be fun at any time.

We escaped with about 6 minutes to spare and were awarded a grade A for the task. Happy teenagers during half term.

Thanks to our host Jordan.

We have been to other escape rooms with other companies recently and found that they have not been as well maintained as here. Elusion get our vote for best escape rooms! Please create some more, we have nearly run out!
