    Great VR experience
    The team made us really comfortable and we’re really helpful and the actual VR experience was great. The only reason it isn’t 5 stars, is because I did one in Florida that was better and had a massive warehouse walk around, including elevators, stairs and actual weapons that you physically pick up in real life. Definitely worth going though and we will certainly go back. It’s great fun and run by very nice friendly people.

    Cool experience
    I went for my sons 16th, never done anything like this but for our first experience I really give it top marks! Considering money is always quite tight, I thought that it was a reasonable cost for the hour. You also get a nice little discount if you book for the 2nd hr. We went for the Arcade VR and kinda thought wen we got there we’d just choose one game for the hour. But it was nice to be able to choose from the selection at any point you like throughout the booking! The communication in the headset was clear so even though I kept on forgetting which button to use, I was always guided through what to do. Looking forward to going back even though parking near the Camden site might have you driving round in circles for a minute to find a spot.

    Not bad vr experience
    This place is ok. The games were good. We did a zombie shooting game then a halo type game. The room fitted all 3 of us and was ok. It's a lot smaller then the wembly vr place we went too. But the games were ok. The added hospital horror game was a bit naff. All in all a good place. Looks newish inside and equipment all worked fine. Only negative is it is about 15 min walk from Camden tube stn...as it rained we got a cab and it cost £10. When we finished it was a nice walk back. Would recommend.

    Killing zombies and orks like no tomorrow 😄
    This was our first time trying VR with my boyfriend, I bought this as a birthday gift for him and it was amazing! Great quality and great help from Robbie who assisted us throughout the game. The games were awesome and although my boyfriend was in the other room, it felt like he was right besides me this is how good the quality of the whole experience was. Thanks so much, it was great fun!

    Great family event!
    Totally enjoyed our Alice in Wonderland VR Escape Room. The venue was modern and clean and the staff were friendly (we had Dulcie and Kimmy help us). We came as a party of 6, myself, my husband, our 15yr old, our 10yr old, and two 70yr olds - the two 70yr olds struggled with the concept and the controls (even though there were only two buttons!), but the rest of us thoroughly enjoyed it and managed to escape with 10mins left (phew!). You aren't together in a room like some VR venues, instead you are in single rooms, which is weird but fine, the only downside was feeling like I spent most of the time in the corner of the room! 😂 Really enjoyable none the less, but maybe not for 70yr olds!

    Brilliant!!
    Went with my 9 year old son and we both loved it. We went for the Arcade package which has plenty of games for all levels and ages. We were both new to VR but the friendly and professional staff supported us throughout the experience. Very highly recommended.

    Didn’t know what to expect but wasn’t disappointed!
    Visited with my son, I’m 48, he’s a 23 year old gamer and it was intended more for his entertainment than mine. However, less than two minutes in and I was hooked! Really good selection of games and relatively easy to use, even for an old fart like me. Lots of different skill levels and experiences, from fixing droids in Star Wars to slicing fruit with samurai swords. We struggled a bit with the multiplayer games, but that was probably more down to my basic grasp of video games than anything else. Really enjoyable, lovely clean space, helpful team and a genuine workout - I was disappointed when our time was up! We’ll be back for sure and will certainly recommend.

    Surprisingly good for a non-gamer
    Surprisingly good for a non-gaming person like me. Went with my 8 year old son and we both had a lot of fun. The facilitator guided us throughout the experience (if we knew what we were doing he'd probably would have let us get on with it). Son going again this time with dad on his birthday next week.

    Mind Blowing Experience
    We took our 12 year old nephew to DNA VR for his first VR experience and it blew us all away. We opted for the free-roam time travel experience and had a fantastic time - the graphics were very immersive and well done, and the puzzle was a little difficult but the VR Master lent us a helping hand. Our nephew loved it. We are definitely coming back to try more!

    Great! Highly recommend
    I booked this with my nine year old sister, we both thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We laughed and had a really good time. Staff were very helpful at all points during the experience it was our first time. I would recommend this for anyone wanting to try VR. We hope to visit again!

This was a really fun way to spend a couple of hours. A great workout too - who knew Zombies could be good for you! The staff are really friendly and Adam was a fabulous host. So good we’ve booked again for next week 😃

A fabulous couple of hours spent in a VR escape room and in the VR arcade. We all had a great time. Facilities were clean and our VR masters, Joshua and Adam were friendly and helpful.

Went here for a day-date and honestly it was way better than I thought! I didn't know how a VR escape room would be but it was such good fun. We did the haunted one, Sanctum (i think), and it was really detailed, graphic and realistic. I've not done a VR game before so it took a few mins to get the hang of it but it was easy after that. I could communicate with my wife who was in another room and the trainer who was guiding us through. The only thing which was frustrating was the trainer would be talking to others players in other games through our game which was distracting at times but i think his mic was on by accident and it didnt happen more than once.

We completed the escape room game and received a free shoot out game to wrap up the session.

All in all, highly recommended and would definitely do it again with this company!

Played free-roam premium Pirate Plague Escape room experience, difficulty level medium. Took my 16 year old god-son, I'm 54. We had the best time. Adam our session handler was super helpful with initial instructions and a few hints along the way. We finished with 6 mins to spare so next time, and there will be a next time, we will attempt the hard option. Honestly, we came out on such a high, laughing and smiling all the way down to Camden Market for a well earned BBQ beef brisket and dirty fries lunch. The best fun! Highly recommend.

We did the VR Escape Room. It was just four of us: me and my fiancee, and our friends who have been married for over a year. It was our first time doing something like this and it was so fun! Would definitely come back. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but we had an amazing time. We did the one called 'Sanctum', which I would recommend for a first try as we all really enjoyed it (we're all over 30). I'd criticise two things, but they didn't take away from the enjoyment so much:

1. Before we started the game, we were told that if an object in the game lit up in purple, it meant that there was something important to do that involved that object. But there was a point in the game where we had to do something despite there being no purple light, which resulted in us not finishing the game: About 90% into the game, we got to a point where a wall had letters which lit up in red, and we had to spell the correct name despite no indication to do so, no purple light, whereas in all other similar points in the game where we had to do something, an object would light up in purple, as we were told before the game started. So if you do this game, note that you might reach a point where you have to spell out a name on the wall despite there being no purple light.

2. The right arrow of my controller wasn't working. This wasn't much of an issue as you can also turn right by moving your head to the right.
