Jul 2021 • Friends
From the moment we were greeted at the doors, we felt welcome and at home.
We had an amazing time. We were in the Venus room, it was really fun. We managed to save the world in 51 minutes with only 2 clues.
Definitely going back to try the other room.

Great puzzles
Jul 2021 • Friends
Had a lovely afternoon at Paradox Parlours which was definitely enhanced by our bubbly host Izzy. The puzzles were the right amount of difficulty that you felt accomplished after achieving them.

Fantastic experience I would do it again
Jul 2021
I have been to two escape rooms before. However the "Venus" room was quite interesting and different.

- There was an interactive voice experience which makes you get in the theme of the room
- It wasn't only one room it had a door within the room, some other escape rooms are limited to one square room.
- The puzzles and lock systems varied and I haven't seen a card key used in one before (sorry no more spoilers).
- Although it is hot in the summer they provided a fan and it sort of helped.
- In general the experience of escaping and solving puzzles is a great way to bond with Family, Friends and even co-workers as it can enhance team collaboration.

There may be more I haven't mentioned but it was a well paid visit, I will most likely go again in the near future.

Fun 1st time escape room experience
Jun 2021 • Family
Had such a good time yesterday doing one of the escape rooms! First time doing one and I loved it (as did the rest of the group). We had a super fun and engaging host (sorry can’t remember the name but he said he’d been there about a couple of months?) He was full of energy and very clear with instructions etc. There was so much to do in the room with multiple puzzles etc going on at once which was very enjoyable! Hoping to go do ‘Venus’ soon.

There is nothing we love more than introducing first time players to escape rooms, and it is fantastic to hear that your first experience was just right, added to by your host's energy and engaging instructions (Jamal and Toby are our most recent male team members). Our co-founders, Tom and Steven, spend large amounts of time ensuring that our games are filled to the brim with a variety of puzzles that give everyone something to do, so it is great to know that their hard work paid off for you and your team. We look forward to seeing you again soon to take on Venus for the fate of the world!

A really well constructed room with interesting puzzles that were varied and did not need other knowledge to complete. The staff were enthusiastic, friendly and engaging and we had a great time.

Brilliant Escape Room
Jul 2021
We booked this escape room for my daughters 12th birthday for her & 4 friends. It was absolutely perfect, Dad went in the room to as an adult helper but it was perfectly pitched for them to be able to play with just a little bit of guidance. The game is observed so you can ask for hints which are specific to where you are in the game which is ace. The girls absolutely loved it and I would highly recommend. The host welcomed us at the door and spoke directly to the girls and had great rapport with them too which is so important.
