    What a throwback!
    My friend and I played Time Machine back in February 2022 and successfully escaped in 47 minutes 39 seconds. Such a clever and fun game with multiple themes throughout thanks to the time travel story line. Some great nostalgia in the first part of the game for my friend and I who are both 90's kids.
    Thank you for the lovely review! We are very happy to hear you have enjoyed your time here with us at Escape Live and well done for the speedy escape. We hope to see you back again soon to try out some more of the excellent escape rooms we have to offer.

    A fun and entertaining way to spend an hour
    Well thought through, challenging and good fun. The staff are well trained and offer tips if you're struggling. We enjoyed it as a family of 4 (2 teenage sons). It's not in a nice part of town and the entrance isn't very inviting. It seems as though they haven't finished doing it up at the front. However, the staff were very good, and the room itself was very well done (did Peaky Blinders). Would recommend for something fun and different to do especially on a wet day.

    Escape Live - double cross
    Did this escape room on a Saturday morning. Good welcome and friendly staff especially from our host Rob. Escape room itself was ok, but not as interesting as we’d hoped for and could see lots of opportunities to make it more engaging.

    Booking was a challenge as we had a voucher for an online game and the number kept reverting to a building who couldn't help. However the game was fantastic and Rob was a really good host. over all really good. would do it again!

    Really good but beware of low door frames!!
    We played room 13 today and escaped with 6 min 58 remaining. Overall we really enjoyed it and Tanya was an excellent games master, I couldn't fault her at all she was really enthusiastic. The atmosphere in the room was good and we found it challenging but not impossible. It would have been nice to have a bit more interactivity with some of the equipment in the room and a verbal warning about low door frames should be given before entering as my husband really hurt his head which ruined his experience of the last part of the game (and he's not ridiculously tall!). Hoping to return and play jack the ripper in the future.
    Thank you so much for your fantastic review of your Room 13 experience at Escape Live! We're delighted to hear that you had a great time and managed to escape with just 6 minutes and 58 seconds to spare. It's wonderful to hear that Tanya, our games master, made your experience enjoyable with her enthusiasm and guidance. We appreciate your feedback about the room's atmosphere and challenge level. We'll certainly take your suggestion about more interactive elements into consideration for future rooms. We apologize for the incident with the low door frames, and we'll work on improving our pre-game briefing to ensure a safer and more enjoyable experience for all participants. We're looking forward to having you back for the Jack the Ripper room in the future – it's sure to be another thrilling adventure! Thank you for choosing Escape Live, and we can't wait to see you again soon.

    Finding Dr Watson
    This is the second escape room I've done and apparently it's one of the harder ones, we needed a few clues but managed to complete it. I felt the room was mainly just padlocks and clues to getting numbers rather than a mix of puzzles and feeling more connected with a murder mystery rather than just... We need a number... And working out what that number is repeatedly. The experience was made far better by Tania the staff member that guided us through and gave us clues in character. She deserves a raise!
    Thank you so much for sharing your feedback! We're delighted to hear that you enjoyed the challenge of our escape room and that Tanya enhanced your experience with her immersive guidance. We appreciate your insights on the puzzle variety, and we'll certainly take them into consideration to enhance our future rooms. We look forward to welcoming you back for another thrilling adventure!

    Pay attention to the level of experience you pick.
    We visited today to try the Jack the Ripper experience. Whilst enjoyable it was rated as hard which we hadn’t noticed and we were pretty terrible at it! That said Rob was great and helped (dragged) us through it. Be careful at which experience you pick as this has an intrinsic impact on your success and overall experience. Good luck!

    Good fun but we were unlucky …….
    Did the Peaky Blinders experience as a special birthday treat. It was great fun but we didn’t complete it. We later discovered that one of the clues wasn’t working properly ( I won’t go into details as I don’t want to spoil it for anyone else) We spent ages on this particular clue and eventually ran out of time. The staff just laughed it off and said they would have to put it right for the next people but on reflection it would have been nice for this to be acknowledged in some way. All in all a fun time was had but it was frustrating not to complete it !
    Thank you for celebrating your birthday with us in one of our Peaky Blinders rooms. We apologize for the inconvenience with the malfunctioning puzzle. Your feedback is valuable, and we'll work to improve communication in such situations. We're glad you had fun overall and hope to welcome you back for another adventure. Thanks again!

We played room 13 as a newbie to escape rooms and thoroughly enjoyed it, escaping with 19 minutes spare. Our games master Dan was great and really set the atmosphere. Would definitely recommend!

Luke was amazing. Give him a raise for his female voice alone (on the jack the ripper). Never done one of these before but he was really sweet and made us all have a lovely time. 10 outta 10
