    Great time
    Our experience at Clue HQ was such a lovely one. We were greeted by a lovely and friendly host. Shown a video of exactly what to expect in terms of locks, puzzles, things we shouldn’t touch etc. The room itself it a lovely design with lots of detail, really feels like an immersive experience. Only improvements: There are a lot of locks! Like, everything needs unlocking with a lock. Maybe some variation would have been nice, as it was so very warm in the room and we were struggling to open the locks after some time. Also we struggled with the general knowledge riddles. There was no indication of the answer in the room, so if you didn’t know the answer, you’d have to wait around for clues to be drip fed. But other than that, a great room and we will be coming back for another 🤗

    Great escape room
    We took our 9 & 7 year olds to completely this Escape Room as family because it was my husbands birthday and the kids had heard us talk about them so much, that they wanted to join in. Was it a mistake….yes, they were more of a hinderance, but they enjoyed it and we knew our chances of getting out successfully were slim. It’s a really challenging room and is usually completed by 6 adults, but I would highly recommend it. Even families with older kids would be able to do this one. The staff were great, the clues were helpful and I’m very tempted to go back and try again. It’s a great location too and with a full bar available and other activities in the same building, you could spend a few hours having fun as a group.

    Great experience lots of fun!
    Had the best time at Clue HQ Swindon. We had gone previously and had a slight issue with the room, which I informed the manager on. Jamie the manager was incredible with sorting it out making our experience 10/10 and very grateful for how he handled the situation and what he gave us to ensure we had the best experience the next time. Alex our games host was brilliant, making us laugh throughout the whole room and giving us the best experience whilst giving some great hints when needed. 100% recommend and will be going back.

    Great family fun
    Been twice in past month as family of 4- youngest being 10 years old. Both rooms were great and we all had a fab time. No issues with staff but I would say Callum, the host, on our second visit was more personable and helpful. Would definitely recommend. Gave 4/5 as would be useful to have difficulty rating for each room prior to booking.

    Great venue and staff
    We’ve been here a couple of times now and always do the 3 activities with children and adults. It is a great price for 3 activities. We love escape rooms and managed to succeed this time (with a little help) and I’m so pleased we did as it was for two 10 years olds birthday and they were chuffed to bits. The Lazer tag was also really enjoyed. The Crazy golf chased the usual arguments and we had to stop the kids from forcing the people in front of us from to hurry up (I’ve yet to go to an empty crazy golf course) but overall they thoroughly enjoyed it all. The arcade and pool tables kept the younger boys entertained whilst they waited for their brothers and dads to finish the escape room. We got our drinks and snacks at the bar and the staff were polite and attentive as always. My only criticism about the whole place is the toilets need a major refurb! I would highly recommend this for a family day out, birthday party or treat during the bad weather.

    Great team building exercise
    I went to clue HQ with work colleagues on a team build. We did bunker 38 and we all really enjoyed it, really gets the mind working and you have to work together to solve it. You have to think outside the box and when we did get stuck some helpful clues came through. Callum - the host was great and even gave us some extra time as we were so close to escaping - which we did! Highly recommend.

Very disappointing experience. We had done 3 rooms at the Bristol one which was excellent, they recommended coming to the Swindon one to do the detonation room. The 2 out of 5 stars is for the room only which was excellent. The whole experience was let down by the staff. We started with one guy who was introduced as our game controller. They appeared to swap staff half way through and they then had no idea where we were with what we had an hadn’t done and then ultimately gave us a clue for a puzzle we hadn’t accessed this then wasted 15 minutes of our time as we couldn’t figure it out and turns out we wouldn’t. We tried really hard not to ask for clues and when we did no body answered and we asked multiple times about one puzzle and nothing for 20 minutes. Very disappointing experience, they need new more engaging staff who actually want to be there and help. Will not be returning or recommending.

4 of us took part in the Egyptian escape room. This was my first escape room experience and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
It was a quiet night and as we were so close to solving the room, we were given a few minutes extra time to complete it, much appreciated.
I would recommend this as a great group event, though at times the challenges were a little tricky, we were given assistance where we were on the right tracks, but just not quite there!

Another fantastic visit to Clue HQ. This time we did Detonation. I have marked it down by one simply because a couple of the puzzles simply didn't have enough clues to solve without assistance from our host!

Warren did a cracking job as our host though, despite some faulty equipment at the beginning!

Overall it was a fun room and we made it out with literal seconds to spare!!
