An amazing experience for all ages! Paul was a fantastic guide very funny and the escape room itself was brilliant. My favourite part was Paul sitting in his high chair explaining how we did and where we slowed down.

Hi! No, there are no actors in our escape room. However, it is atmospheric and may cause participants to 'jump' - as per our FAQs it is not recommended for people who are pregnant or have heart conditions.
