We had a wonderful time this afternoon. The escape from alcatraz would not have been possible without the amazing Chris. Great fun and we will be back to try other rooms! Thank you and well done in a great experience

While this was enough of a laugh, the games were VERY LINEAR. This means that you are all working on one task, then all working on the next etc. Isn’t so great if you are in a large team, because 5/6 of you are grouped...More

Went with my work team and did the Alcatraz room. None of us had been before but we had a great fun and enjoyed the challenge. James was our host, he was excellent explaining everything and cracking jokes along the way. Would definately return.

I've been to escape reality on a few occasions and have done a few of their rooms. What's great is that they are all different and they don't seem to reuse puzzles in the different rooms like some places do so each one is a...More

I went to Escape Reality and played two rooms, The Heist and Fibonacci, and had a brilliant time! I've never done escape rooms before so I was really pleased that our host Jordan was there to explain how everything worked without giving too much away...More

I’ve been to escape reality twice now, once to do Enigmista and again to do Alcatraz on Halloween night. The rooms are very well themed and the challenges are difficult enough without being impossible! Simon was our host both times and he’s great at getting...More

I’d definitely recommend Alcatraz - it’s their most difficult one but my partner and I managed to work well together and escaped. It takes great communication and teamwork and the challenges are difficult but it’s great fun!
