About
You and up to five friends are locked in our themed room for 60 minutes and have to escape. Sounds simple? You’ll need to work together as a team to decipher clues, complete puzzles and work out exactly what’s real and what’s not if you want to beat our puppet masters. Whether you’re new to escape rooms or a seasoned expert, we’re sure you’ll be surprised.

A welcome treat during lockdown!
Sep 2020
Very simplistic, basic set up but hugely effective. The team had also really considered Covid with appropriate hand gels, face masks, distancing, safety briefs etc.
We were a bit clueless at the start so it was helpful to have a few prompts when needed.
A really good night out!

An amazing 'Host' experience!
Feb 2020
A totally immersive escape room with a full on experience.
Ellie was the most amazing host of this beautifully executed escape room. My partner and I booked this as a distraction during an awful time in my life and this really brought us together. it was just the two of us playing but somehow,(Thanks Ellie!) given another 30 seconds, we would've made it out. (WE HAD DONE EVERYTHING!!!)
There is enough in there to keep 6 people busy so we really got a bit tied up in those bits. Also....Ellie is a bit playful with scaring the stuff out of you at some points! (in a good way!)
So grateful to Ellie because my partner had never done an escape room before and I was worried he would hate it....he is now hooked! I do believe we have now cultivated a v expensive hobby! Next room soon please Ellie! (chop chop!)

Went out with my some friends for my birthday and it was so much fun! Spent a much better time here than we would've if we had gone out out, and for only £17 each it was cheaper too! Defo would recommend and cant wait to go back to try another game.

Lovely time!

I went to the escape rooms with my girlfriend and some mutual friends for what was essentially our third date and we’re still together now, so maybe that colours my opinion but we all had a great time!!

The rooms were fun, immersive and story driven. A lot of thought had clearly gone in to making the puzzles fit within the theme and even the clue delivery systems matched the themes for each room and didn’t break the reality.

We only went for one room but we enjoyed it so much and got lucky that they could squeeze us in for a second game the same day! Plus when you visit the escape rooms they give you a voucher for money off food and drink at a bar round the corner called Tiny Rebel so of course we ate there too and had a smashing afternoon all round. Best escape rooms I’ve seen and I’ve played about 10 now.

Family birthday outing
Jan 2020
We were 6 virtual novices,and as such quite nervous about doing an escape room. Such a brilliant surprise to have so much completely immersive fun. We really got into it and didn’t feel as if we were having too much in the way of help(even though we needed a few nudges). Emerging with 1 min and 13 seconds to spare we were all on a high. Ellie is an excellent host and sustained the narrative brilliantly. Can not recommend this highly enough.

The woman who worked there was lovely and was nice to my friends when we seemed nervous. The room was really immersive and felt realistic, the clues were excellent and difficulty was okay. We managed to escape with 3 minutes to spare, the room was really fun and I’ll be going back!

A great birthday afternoon!
Nov 2019 • Friends
This is the second time we've done an escape room at The Escape Rooms in Newport and we've thoroughly enjoyed both sessions. Our team consisted of 3x20 year olds and 2x50 year olds and was enjoyed by all! The team at The Escape Rooms are incredibly enthusiastic and friendly and make you feel very welcome. I would thoroughly recommend trying the escape rooms here :) looking forward to trying their new Space adventure game which is in the pipeline.
