Thoroughly enjoyable, mind taxing, immeasurably frustrating at times but an excellent experience - welcoming staff, time went so fast - we didn't make it out in time but this didn't detract from the experience. Will definitely be back to try again...

The staff were very good, the puzzles challenging & fun, & the props really well-chosen. Clues were given at just the right time.

Part of our work’s Christmas party. Well organised, good theme, welcoming staff. Minor criticism would be that there are too many hints given on the screens. Would definitely recommend.More
