    Can't understand how I hadn't heard of you, fantastic trip
    Really didn't know what to expect, came with my Dad and brother for bro's 22nd. Came in and was greeted by a cheerful bloke I didn't catch the name of and a lady called Demi. After getting drinks we had the games on offer explained. I hadn't done vr rigs before while my family had so the explanation was detailed but quick making everyone happy. Games available were great, didn't feel self conscious and Demi had tips for any tricky bits. Worth the money and will be bringing Mrs for date night, thanks again Demi

    Mad Money game was brilliant
    Very good Mad Money game - kept everyone busy and was difficult to complete with a good score! We were a family of 4 young adults and our 60-year old Mum, and all enjoyed it. Will definitely be back to try Tension Twisted Realities' other games next time we're in Lincoln!

    Great Fun and Friendly Staff
    Sister and I decided to do the bank heist theme room and had a blast. The staff member was really friendly and encouraging and even gave us a hand when we didn’t know something. This was our first escape room and we’re definitely going back for more!

    40th birthday celebrations
    We had a fantastic time celebrating a colleagues 40th birthday 🥳 The ‘Twisted team’ are amazing and so friendly. The puzzles are really good. We managed to escape with 20 mins spare. Everyone enjoyed it.

    Team building at Tension Twisted Realities
    Never been to an experience like this. Was planned as part of a team building exercise. Thoroughly enjoyed the day that was well organised and run by a team of staff who were helpful and fun. Thank you.
    We were so pleased when your group booked us for your team building day. All of us here had nearly as much fun as all your staff did. Thank you and we look forward to seeing you again soon.

    Fabulous, fun and exciting time doing team building work
    Today we went for a team building day as our training day. It was a fabulous day lots of different activities for us to do. The first time I have done an escape room and was brilliant. Virtual reality headsets with lots of different games. Then some extra challenges.

    Fun for all!
    Had never done an escape room before but came today as part of a team building day. The escape room was lots of fun and had opportunity for everyone to get involved and work together. The VR headset was good what a great experience to have. All the staff were friendly, I will definitely be going back!

    School Staff Team Building
    Went as part of a team building day for MAPS staff and wholly surpassed expectations! The VR was great, escape rooms were brilliant, mobile bomb was clever (and infuriating haha), alongside really helpful and friendly staff (especially dealing with more than 70 *mildly* competitive adults!). First visit and will definitely be back again, can't sing their praises enough!

Group of us went for my friends birthday, we had my friends little boy with us and the experience was brilliant. The staff couldn't be nicer, super friendly and the escape room was brilliant. Definitely recommend tension realities.

Unfortunately my daughter was taken ill and we had to cancel at short notice, I called the team and they allowed us to cancel in return for a gift voucher without any hesitation. I was really grateful for their understanding and caring team.

This level of customer service makes a really positive difference!!

We look forward to rebooking soon.

My husband and I have visited this location on several occasions.
We have completed all of the escape rooms, attended a murder mystery, taken part in target bell shooting and eaten and drank at their bar.
The owner is super friendly and it's a great place to visit.
Although we haven't attended them, they also have bingo nights, quizzes, comedy nights, virtual reality, etc.
Loads of fun to be had no matter what your age :-)

What an awesome escape room - Mad Money - with a great concept and some really tricky but well thought out puzzles. We raided all the safes and got loads of money, but then fell at the final hurdle and stayed locked in! devastating. Owner a top guy too, really recommend and recommend supporting a brilliant local business.

Our family tackled Mad Money, and as puzzle fans, we were thrilled with how tricky it was.
We met the owner, Stewart, and his enthusiasm for his business and his attention to the customer having a good experience, was great to see.
We will return to do other rooms.
Incidentally, we managed to escape the vault with £6 million before the police arrived! So a successful evening!

Although we've been Tension customers for a long time now, this weekend I took my two children (11 and 10) to do the Christmas escape room, 12 Days of Christmas. They were really looking forward to it, having done a couple of the other rooms there, and also a previous Christmas room a few years back.
We arrived a bit early on purpose to have a drink and a game of pool upstairs first. As our room booking time approached we were given our first puzzle to solve and find the code to get through to the escape rooms.
We really loved our visit, and the Christmas room was good fun with lots of treats along the way. The puzzles were at a perfect level for my children to do most of the work with just a few hints from me, and of course the option to phone for a clue which they also did.
We will definitely be back and always recommend Tension as a great place to book for some entertainment, especially when the weather isn't great, as my two find the VR really fun too. Looking forward to trying the new rooms when they open next year!
