We played the Signal and it was a great escape room (can't go into details though or I'll spoil it for you). Recommend them both for excellent customer service and brilliant escape room. Can't wait to try their others rooms soon.

Great venue on the 2nd floor, very central location. You begin outside an empty apartment door in Distopia, the tenant has mysteriously disappeared. Once you've worked out how to get in it's a race against time to find out what's going on & get out...More

Went here with a group of friends to attempt "The Signal" room. Found it challenging and really enjoyable. Puzzles are clever, engaging and allowed each one of the 6 of us to contribute. The staff were very nice and pleasant as well. Would definitely recommend.

All info is on their website, but we had just the two of us, so we did The Signal. Spellbound needs a minimum of 4 people and has a higher rating for difficulty.
