Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We have completed around 30-40 escape rooms now and these guys are one of the best. The rooms are well laid out, light and spacious. All of the puzzles work and are really well maintained. Everything feels sturdy unlike in some escape rooms that are really in a bad state of repair. There is attention to detail here, it was a cold day and we we were told to turn up the heater if needed (it didn't need it the room was just right), we only received a clue when we absolutely needed it (and we only had one) and the puzzles were just great, challenging but not obscure (we did heist on this occasion but this would apply to all of the rooms here). The room felt clean and looked after. Absolutely recommend these as the top escape rooms in Derby and we have done them all. Thanks guys can't wait to come back and have a bash at your new room later in the year.

How do I start!

This escape room was just amazing!

We arrived 10 minutes prior to our booking time and was shown to the waiting area, advised to do a quick toilet run and then given a room brief sheet!
(I loved being able to read about the room as being half deaf can sometimes be hard listening and taking in what’s going on.)

We were shown into the room and the game began. The room was laid out brilliantly it was simple but effective, not too overwhelming but not plain enough to make you bored.

There was lots of different style clues and enough for five of us to be scrambling around to solve different parts of clues.

I loved that if you were stuck you just spoke out-loud as there was microphones on the walls all around and then a clue appeared on the monitor in the corner of the first room.
(Only thing I would recommend is have a screen in all the rooms as if you were in the last room you’d have to go back to the first room to see the clue)

I don’t want to give to much away about the room and clues itself as it really is ‘an experience it yourself type of room’. But I have to say the highlight of ‘bank heist’ was the safe, solving puzzles and clues to get the gold bars!

We managed to rob the bank and get out without being caught by the police!
We had a photo taken as a group and loved being able to pose with the stolen goods! (Another suggestion would be to offer a photo on one of the attendees phone, as we only had one on the company phone and will have to wait til for it to be uploaded to Facebook to get it)

Thank you to John for being such a great games master and host!

Went here as a birthday present. We did the Rough Trade game which was very good as a first experience. Initial advice was good and tips guided us where we needed it but we never needed the actual answers.

Went along as part of a stag do! very friendly staff, who gave us a recommendation prior on which room to do (Grand Heist in the end). The room was well laid out, with good puzzles of huge variety!! all our group (From first timers to escape room connoisseurs) had a great time, and we had the bonus of setting a new record on their hardest room!! If I am back in Notts/Derby I'm sure I will be back to try the other rooms.

We chose The Escape Room Guys because of their proximity to the town centre and the bars.
Our mission was Contagion with 6 of us playing. We had 60 minutes to work out our path to success.
John, the owner and facilitator was great - a warm welcome and great fun.
We’ll definitely be going again, and before you ask, yes we were successful!

Me and my partner did all three rooms one after the other and enjoyed every minute of it.
Stories behind the rooms made it even better.
We escaped the first 2 rooms and then got 7 gold bars.
We would highly recommend this place.
