We were previously blown away by Professor Dunstan and were really looking forward to Sub Terra, and it didn’t disappoint. Everything looked beautiful, the concept was a bit different, we were busy and thoroughly entertained. Really looking forward to the next one.

We went to this today. This was such an amazing experience. The host was really great at helping us out. The game props were really great, and you can select a difficulty level which makes the hints and clues harder to work out. We opted...More

It is great to hear that you enjoyed our Professor Dunstan game so much, thanks a lot for your review! The second room is also made by ourselves, and includes (we think) a quite spectacular and unique set. We are looking forward to hosting you...More

We were a party of 4 adults, 3 of whom had done escape rooms at two other locations in Swindon and Co-Decode was most definitely a cut above the others. The whole experience is exceptionally well thought out, starting with the five minute teaser in...More

Thanks for a fantastic review - I'm glad to hear you appreciated all the extra details in the game as well as the puzzles themselves. We hope you'll be back to experience the new room from mid-February onwards!

Room was well designed and props and puzzles were ingenious. Host's level of help and assistance pitched just right to help us get the most out of our game. Just failed to get out in time but very enjoyable despite this

We'd only done one or two rooms locally before this one but this was the best so far. Finding our way into the seemingly deserted industrial unit where it's located just added to the sense of anticipation! The host was incredibly friendly and helpful and...More
