Experienced all three rooms and sadly wouldn’t recommend two of them. Ramesize is a good room that is well decorated to get you submerged into the game. The staff really get into role as well. Sadly it appears too much work is being started and...More

We really value critical feedback, and people spending their time leaving it! We are creating new experiences in Sheffield, Barnsley and Nottingham, so it's good to have this unabridged. Reviews are always subjective of everybody's unique opinion and there is no way we can argue...More

We had great fun today and really enjoyed the narrative of the secret agent room. Very clever and different, I'd definitely recommend going here

We have had children as young as 12 do the room by themselves, it has gone well. We ask that a responsible adult remains in the building with us, you can watch the game on the CCTV we use, or sit in our reception.
