A fantastic evening! The actors were phenomenal, the food was delicious, the cocktails were amazing and we really did have a wonderful evening. Thank you to everyone for your perfect hospitality and keeping in character with us as a crazy bunch! Shout-out to Prisoner 1612 for making our drinks perfectly and being such a gem. We were all so impressed and really enjoyed it! Also, the food was great thanks "Silver" and we felt safe as all government guidelines were followed during the Pandemic.

Monty (Ann Lesbie), BJ, Anita Mann and Farnsworth were amazing. The drinks tasted great too!! I can’t wait to go back again.

Came here for a birthday celebration and wanted to do something a bit different. Everything was so organised. Staff were friendly albeit in character. Loved their enthusiasm. Drinks made were great and were paced nicely over the time. Right balance of allowing us time to sit in the ‘cell’ to drink and chat but also engaging in role play. Nothing was forced and was never made to feel uncomfortable. Worth doing once.

Fantastic time at Alcotraz - am always quite hesitant with immersive experiences as can be quite reserved at first, but there was nothing to worry about at all. The experience starts even before you cross the threshold with the obligatory safety briefing. Masks are to be worn throughout (unless exempt) except when you’re seated in your cells and social distancing observed in light of Covid times. Hand sanitiser and masks are provided and your prompted to clean your hands before entering. And each of the standard issue jumpsuits are sanitised between each visit (and my Lord are they comfy!) The staff are in character the whole time and obviously love what they do because they are very passionate!! They generally go from cell to cell - interacting with each of the cells. Even being at the back of the venue we did not feel overlooked nor less favoured than the larger groups! The bar staff also served us the most amazing cocktails - and they are not stingy on the measures of alcohol (I guess as it’s your booze) and between the 2 of us we got through 2/3 of a bottle of gin 😂 So depending on what alcohol you take, there’s obviously a twist on your favourites such as pornstar martini, apple sours, some sort of gorgeous cherry cocktail and pina colada! But from what I see this can vary. Would definitely recommend the experience for those looking for a Covid-secure pass-time in these crazy times and beyond that when we’re finally out of lockdown in 50 years time!! Definitely put a smile on our faces!

I love the concept and did enjoy my time at the venue. The actors were very involved with all the 'inmates' and cocktails were to a decent standard. Unfortunately there was a couple of things that I wasn't impressed with. One of my friends that has joined us has a hearing disability. He was put on the spot a few times and felt a little uncomfortable, before we had a chance to disclose this. Perhaps asking visitors before they enter would avoid such happenings. My wife was also with me and at one stage myself and her got asked to go into
