Our group really enjoyed this! The puzzles were great and the atmosphere solid. My only criticisms would be that it was quite hard to find -- so leave lots of time before your scheduled start to find it -- and there wasn't a lot of...More

First time doing an escape room and it was fantastic! Really clever, interactive, fun and Alfie was fab! The right level of challenging and great to do as a group!

I've done many escape rooms in Budapest where I'm studying at the moment but this one is fantastic! I love how it has a complete storyline and the actor at the beginning was great in setting the mood. Would definitely do another by this company!

We came to Modern Fables as part of my friend's 30th birthday and it was awesome! Very fun. Just the right amount of enough creepy and eerie and a good challenge! Would definitely recommend this place. Staff are friendly and helpful too.

A great experience, a challenge but not too hard! I would hesitate having a group larger that 4 though-there were 3 of us and many more would make it hard to work together to solve the riddles.

I've been to a couple of classic style escape rooms before and murder mystery type events, but quite honestly nothing has come close to this level of immersion. Both the myriad of problems to solve (mathematic, memory, lateral thinking) and complexity range of the various...More

Thank you for taking the time to write such a mind-blowing review. We’re now feeling speechless in the office and pumped to finish our next game. Totally made our day!

We have done quite a few escape rooms and really enjoyed this one. Your experience starts as soon as you step through the door which is fun. The puzzles are a good mix of difficult to medium and the props/ room set up are great....More

It’s not set in a particular era, it does have a sort of twenties feel though.

There's nothing really too physical about this escape room which should be of hindrance to your pregnant friend. I really do think it would be fine but you can call up/enquire to put your mind at ease. And there is a chair... More
