    Good fun
    Good place, right in the centre of Cardiff. Friendly staff (and Watson the dog). Well designed puzzles in room, and our group only needed a few clues to complete the puzzles, and escape the room, in 48 minutes, which was the fastest this week. When needed, hints and clues were communicated into the room by staff, who were continually observing you. Website easy to use, and book session, which gave helpful descriptions of each experience when choosing which room to try.
    Thank you for your wonderful review, we're really glad you had a wonderful time! Hope to see you again soon!

    The Curse of Senutep
    It was our first experience of an escape room, and we could not have asked for more. We decided to go with the most difficult room, and we are very glad of our choice. We were very engaged throughout our time, the puzzles were very cleverly designed and thought out. Mandy, our game master, was very accommodating throughout our escape room, we are grateful for all your help Mandy so thank you! Special shout out to Watson who was ever so friendly! We will definitely be back to visit and try out the other rooms, thank you for a great experience!
    Thank you for your wonderful review! We look forward to seeing you again soon.

    Coco Loco
    Great idea, great puzzles, good fun and well worth the money! Mandy was excellent and set the scene perfectly. We will definitely return to one of the other rooms and recommend this to all.

    Great experience!
    Exitus Escape Rooms was by far one of the best puzzle rooms that I have visited. It was accommodating to a family of 4, organised everything quickly when we arrived and (most importantly I would imagine) had an entertaining, appropriately challenging room for us to complete. It was a delight and we've already made another booking for later in the year.
    Thank you for your lovely review! We look forward to seeing you again soon!

    Brilliant afternoon
    We did Coco Loco. Two adults, 13 yr old, 12yr old and a 5 year old. It was a real good mix of puzzles and our 5yr old could help look for things and have a go at the puzzles too. Just the right level of difficulty. Everyone loved it and Nathaniel was a great host! We definitely recommend this room for families!
    Thank you for your lovely review! We're really glad you all enjoyed!

    Enjoyable and a fun challenge
    We had a great time at the Exitus Escape room. We were greeted by Mandy and the locations furry friend, Watson. We did the Chocolate escape room and had a blast solving the puzzles and eating our reward. We went with 3 first time escape room participants and they figured out how the rooms worked after some great direction from the team at Exitus. Thank you so much for a great time!

    Coco Loco room with the family
    We did the Coco Loco room as a family of 4 with an 8 and 11 year old. The puzzles were great to involve both children and made us all work as a team. Some real hands on puzzles which is always a winner with kids and loved the surprises in the room too. Great room and will definitely be back to do the other two!
    Thank you for your wonderful review! We're so glad you all enjoyed Coco Loco!

    An engaging experience with friends.
    Our group here had a brilliant experience. Fun for ages 12 plus in the hardest room and 18 max for the easiest room, I would say. The people were lovely, our bags and jackets were kept safe and our games master Nathaniel was very helpful and gave us an odd hint every now and then when we were really struggling. For your average escape room, the difficulty was around medium-hard for beginners and has 3 different rooms, I believe. We just about escaped The Curse of Senutep room with 3 minutes to spare. The only possible downfall is its location as it was not the easiest to find within a busy Cardiff day out as it is between two large neon store-fronts. But overall, a great and engaging experience.
    Thank you for your lovely review. We look forward to seeing you again soon!

    Great!
    This wasn't our first time visiting Exitus and, after the room we went through, it most certainly won't be our last either! We managed to escape "The Curse of Senutep", but that's not to say that it was easy! In this room, there were puzzles the likes of which we had never seen before, and the sandy floors certainly helped to set the theme. An accompaniment of friendly, pleasant staff ensures that this place gets an entry in the "MUST RETURN HERE" list. Thank you very much!
    We're so glad you enjoyed your visit! We look forward to seeing you again soon!

We had a 10th birthday party at Coco Loco escape room in Cardiff. Best party ever!!!!!! The children loved it. Its a great space with a nice cosy breakout room with a bar. The staff are great with excellent customer service and in our case managed a group of very excited children with humour and understanding. I would highly recommend this place to everyone.

It was only our second escape room as a family and my mum’s first, she had no idea what to expect but soon got into the swing of hunting for clues and shouting out answers.

Switchboard operators was our top talent which we all got involved with.

Nathaniel was a great Games Master, very thorough and humorous in his introduction and explanations. We weren’t rushed and Nathaniel helped with guidance and feedback at the end. Clearly a man enjoying his work!

The Coco Loco room was ideal for a family, there’s a hidden area the kids loved and a tasty reward at the end. The room was really well put together.

We all enjoyed our time at Exitus Escape rooms and will definitely be back to try our luck at another one soon.

Brilliant fun, absolutely great for our family getting together, all of us are signed up to play again. The team at Exitus were fun, kind and welcoming. It was our first escape room and we couldn’t have asked for a better experience. The game was challenging, engaging, great plot and really, really well thought out. A great start to the year and we’ve not stopped talking about it!

Absolutely amazing! What a gem for the city. The rooms are beautifully decorated, and the puzzles awesome! The bar here is well worth a cocktail, or two, or three and four. Watson the dog also made my day! Thank you team, we will be back 🩷 don’t forget when you visit they offer at-home escape room puzzles that I’ve struggled to find in stores - so make the most of that too! They’re brilliant for pubs, presents and date nights. Thanks again, and a huge thanks to Mandy for hosting us 🩷 - Beca, Matt, James and Eleanor
