We did a 6-player group for The Killer Escape Room, and it was so much fun! The room was well-designed, the puzzles were neither too hard nor too easy, and the slight physical aspect of it was welcomed. The fact that we could get hints on the screen when we got stuck was very helpful. Shoutout to Mathew for being such an awesome host!

This escape room, for our group, was unfortunately a massive let down. I've done approximately 80 escape rooms now, and this was low among them. The puzzles were unimaginative and unintuitive. We found the answers a bit of a leap sometimes. We didn't find much diversity in the types of puzzles.

The story of the room was also lacking excitement, and it was never made clear exactly what the point of us being there was? This wasn't helped by the cheap props used, and the amount of wasted space within the room.

There was one moment where we didn't know how to process (one of those leaps!) and we asked for a clue. The Clue Master gave us a hint which we'd already literally been talking about for 5 minutes, as if that was going to help us - which it didn't, of course.

One final annoyance was when we were near to getting out, the games master just opened the final exit for us anyway, stealing the accomplishment from us and leaving us a bit deflated.

One highlight, despite the lack in diversity of puzzles, was the use of technology.

I'd say just avoid this one. It's got 2, not 1, because it's certainly not the worst I've been to and at least some small amount effort had gone in to it.

Hi Andrew, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We are sorry to hear you did not enjoy your experience. We will be sure to look into the situation with our Game Hosts to make sure that they are providing the high level of service we expect. We hope if you join us for the other game at our location some day that it will be more to your liking.

My husband and I had an amazingly fun time at Enigma Escape. Our mission was to help a prisoner break out of Prison in 60 minutes. Janet welcomed us and explained our mission. Janet guaranteed that we would have a good time and she was right. We can't wait to return with a bigger group. Thank you Janet and Enigma Escape. We definitely recommend.

Really good fun and not easy! I took my 14 year old grandson as a birthday present and he loved it.

Matthew and Sophie, our hosts, talked us through it all and .explained that we could be seen and heard whichever room we were in, which was reassuring. The clues and puzzles are excellent and we made our escape with 1 minute and 25 seconds to go!

I can thoroughly recommend it.

Extremely user friendly and great fun. A real mixture of puzzles with very little searching and padlocks. Good light , no crawling around so perfect for those of us of more advanced years. Got out with about 4 mins to spare with a little help from Mat who was friendly and the perfect games master giving little hints when needed but never giving the answers or spoiling the fun.

We had a most amazing day taking part in the ‘The Breakout’. Managed to ‘escape’ with just a few minutes to spare. A special thanks to Matthew who was a great host. Highly recommended. A super way to spend an hour 😀

Our thanks for keeping our booking open and re-organising times that would work for us; much appreciated.

A very enjoyable hour as we struggled with the clues. Thanks for the tips from Matt & Hamii, you kept us moving, and we made it out.

Easy to get to location for our family group of 4.
