We enjoyed our trip to Keyhunter. It was more basic than other rooms we'd been to, although the staff and girl who showed us to our room was just as bubbly and enthusiastic as other escape rooms. It was very padlock-based where other escape rooms...More

Took part in The Double Crossing and really enjoyed the experience. Staff member was very friendly and helpful and the puzzles were challenging but appropriate. Would certainly go again to try the other challenges. Although some of the props could do with some updating, I...More

Had so much fun trying to escape, which we accomplished within the time! It's a shame to see so many negative comments about the basic appearance of the place, the staff were great and does it really matter what the place looks like, just pick...More

Played The Double Crossing using a Groupon deal. It was good for the money paid. You can only enter 5 minutes before, as we arrived early we had a drink in a bar just 5 minutes walk away. Staff friendly. Previous reviews paint this room...More

It's the classic type of escape room mostly with locks. It's made cheap and has nothing impressive as puzzles or interior. My biggest disappointment was that it doesn' the matter if you solve the puzzle and you get certain code, it might be entered backwards...More

Dear Ukrainkata, Yes, you have probably seen that all escape rooms are different - even though our rooms are not perfect, we are making small changes every day to work towards a better experience for you all. There is only one puzzle in that room...More

Went to Keyhunter today. First impressions were that the place needs modernising but it is bright and colourful. Went to do the Double Crossing escape room. The puzzles were good and incorporated a lot of different ideas, some of which were carried out better than...More

This was a good day out and the staff were friendly. Rosie in particular was very helpful throughout. We played the Triad challenge, this was a good challenge and certain parts did stimulate the mind. Overall the place needs some modernising and may want to...More
