    A great Room Escape Review
    We are Room Escape enthusiasts and we did all four rooms in a day. They are all great rooms, well above the average in the UK all offering different experiences. All the staff were very friendly and accommodating. I would highly recommend this place.

    Fantastic
    Has a fantastic time doing the Dreamscape room. It was enough of a challenge but we did manage to complete the room with 3 people. James was our game master and was fantastic, very enthusiastic and friendly. Thank you James for a great experience.

    Dreamscape puzzle extravaganza
    Did the dreamscape room today. Loved it. Not for beginners, but me and my team have done a few now. Loads of different types of puzzles to solve, something to suit all skills. Huge thank you to our host James who was very professional, and also loads of fun. We will be back soon to do the last room.

    Cypherdyne Escape
    Another fantastic trip to Cryptology today! Cypherdyne was made up of some really Intricate and unique puzzles, all set in a relatively bog-standard office room. Most of the puzzles we encountered today we have never experienced in an escape room before, which was throughly enjoyable and challenging. Samuel was brilliant as always, super accommodating and enthusiastic. 10/10

    Great Escape Rooms
    As an escape room enthusiast, I have to say this escape room ‘Cypherdyne’ was a great game. The puzzles were logical and flowed nicely into one another. There were 3 of us that played this room and it seemed the right number of people. The game master Shreya was lovely, she did make a small mistake but told us she had only been there roughly a month so thought she did great considering. We really enjoyed our experience and would visit again if we visit Nottingham. Thanks Team!

    Best escape rooms we’ve ever done!
    The rooms at Cryptology are the best I’ve ever done, simple as that. We made a special trip to Nottingham specifically to do them, and we were not disappointed. Beautifully designed, great use of space, such a brilliant variety of puzzles including some fun hands-on ones, great hosting and so much to get stuck into - especially if you have a big group, so everyone has something to do. Daylight Robbery is my favourite room of all time - I urge everyone to go and do it!!

    AMAZING!
    I have played all of the rooms here and they are all amazing! My personal favourite was Daylight Robbery and it truly deserves all the credit it gets! It was jammed packed full of puzzles and everyone had something to do! Dreamscapes was unique and i loved the concept! Ramaseize was great and also had some great puzzles. Cypherdyne- This was our warm up room All the staff we came across we very welcoming and great in character. Massive thank you to Sam and Anna. All in all a fab day and can't wait for new rooms!

    Fantastic time!!
    What a great way to end our Escape Room Trip. We headed to Cryptology Nottingham for the last day of a trip full of Escape rooms and they certainly didn't disappoint. First up Cypherdyne, now I have to admit, we were a bit silly getting started. Although we always seem to do this while we're warming up. With a couple of handy pointers from James our GM we were in full swing. Then we moved on to Rameseize, we don't usually do well in Egyptian themed rooms but we all seemed to find puzzles that played to our strengths. This was a room with a main objective with the possibility to do more. I always love these types of room, the designer has thought about all teams and allowing game play for everyone. Next we took on Dreamscape, this I was looking forward to, the concept for this room is so good although it did play havoc with my ocd to want to try and do everything. James hosted us for these 3 games and he did so brilliantly. Always in character and despite it being one of the hottest days of the year he was amazing. We were hosted by Mark for our final game, Daylight Robbery and we were all excited to play. This game is crazy good. When i first started playing Escape Rooms, robbing banks did not appeal. Little did I know that, robbing banks is literally our favourite thing to do (in an escape room obviously) and this was so much fun, 60 full minutes of non stop puzzling. My youngest loved this and she had plenty to do for the entire game. Mark gave us a couple of perfectly timed pointers and was a great host. We didn't rob as much as i'd hoped so i guess we need to keep practising. We will return when the new game opens.

    Brilliant fun
    Easy to book and directions were clear. From when we arrived we were made to feel welcome and our host was very friendly and made the game sound exciting. The game itself was really good, hard but we managed to figure (with some clues). All in all a brilliant experience. We will be doing a different room very soon.

    Fun, immersive and hands on!
    Really enjoyed the Daylight Robbery escape room, loads of different puzzles to solve and you were never stood still for too long even with a team of 7. Theres plenty to do! We had a really fun time and were successful in our mission which was a bonus. Oleg (I think that was our GM) was so lovely! Great to chat to and really thorough in his briefing. Excellent time all round!

Had a wonderful experience, greeted by our GM Emily who stayed in character which was fun. We played Dreamscape as a group of 5 and there was plenty of puzzles for all of us to work on. I’d highly recommend.

My friend took me here for my Birthday and we did the Rameses room (Ancient Egypt). From the outset, the attention to detail is fantastic, right down to the Ancient Egyptian explorer host who gets you right in the spirit of the game. The game itself was very challenging (even for my friend, who is a seasoned Escaper) and even though we didn't manage to complete all elements, the game was set up in a way that still enabled you to feel successful by achieving smaller objectives and still enabling you to escape. All in all a thoroughly enjoyable experience, and I would very much look forward to doing another of their rooms - definitely recommend for novices and the experienced alike.

We did the Dreamscape room as a group of six. We have done 10+ escape rooms between us in different parts of the country. Overall I will rate our experience as average. There are some clever pizzles but our biggest problem is the quality of the room. Its looks really low budge, all the wood work, DIY, equipment and the paint job were awful. Because of how low budge the room feels, the immersion was broken and we couldn't enjoy the game as much.

We played Dreamscape (learned later that it was the most difficult of games at Cryptology!). Our game master was amazing, funny and hospitable and made us feel comfortable and excited! The game was epic, lots of puzzles to solve, we were challenged but had an absolute blast :)

I booked an escape room as a cover for a surprise party that I was hosting for my partner. My partner and his friends went into one escape room believing that we were going into another while we secretly ran off to decorate the venue. It worked a treat!
Sam was absolutely fabulous with our arrangements, so helpful, friendly and professional. He made suggestions which worked flawlessly and we couldn’t be more impressed with the whole experience. The team even let us sneak in and out of the exit door to ensure the lie wasn’t discovered. Thank you so much to Sam and the team. Our only disappointment was that we weren’t actually playing an escape room - we will definitely be back to do so as it looked fantastic!!!

We did Rameseize and had an amazing time. There were 3 of us and the puzzles were really fun and got us all thinking! It would definitely be easier with more people.

Our first escape room, we were a team of 4 including two other older teenagers. Benji was a great host, very welcoming and convincing in character. The Rameseize room was great fun, tricky but we thoroughly enjoyed it. We may have done things quicker with a bigger team but we may not - 4 of us was a good number. Unusually, it was a family outing which didn’t end up
in a row! We all enjoyed it and everyone was able to contribute to the problem solving. Can’t wait to do another one of the rooms!

I had a fantastic time with our team doing Daylight robbery. The majority of us had not experienced an escape room before, and we had a blast! Oleg was an amazing host and truly excellent at his job. I’m not surprised because it clearly shows how’s passionate he is about what he does. I can’t wait to book for our next adventure! All the best Oleg and hope to see you again on our next visit :)

We came to Cryptology, completed the dreamscape room and thought it was an awesome experience. Emily, our game master, was really friendly, bubbly and so good at her job! The room itself was a new concept we hadn't come across before, but we thoroughly enjoyed it!
