    Whimsical fun.
    AA Team date - Room 15 for us the forbidden room of fun. It is clear this is a small independent room and there are some very different puzzles here in both parts of the room. Games master Mia was amazing and of course we escaped. We loved the whimsy and the twists on familiar games, there is something for everyone here and we loved it. We are definitely planning to go back to do the Neverland room once that opens.

    good, child-like fun!
    loved the theme of this room, the first half of puzzles felt drastically different to the second half of puzzles but in a good way! clever props, lots of things to keep you entertained, makes you feel like a child again which is nice. our games master mia was lovely and really helpful - she always knew just what to say to help clue us throughout the game, and helped us out a lot at the end ;) wish there were more rooms! if more are added we will definitely come back.

    A great experience!
    We had a fantastic time during the October half term, visiting this escape room with friends and family. The puzzles were family friendly and suitable for my 6 year old child, as well as the adults in the group. We will definitely be back to visit when their new escape room opens next month. Thanks also to Charlotte for being a supportive and encouraging gamesmaster!

Very different escape room to others I have played, I enjoyed the different take on things. Charlotte was very polite and knowledgeable.

Great escape room, many varied puzzles. We had a great time. We were celebrating an un-birthday and Charlotte was a brilliant games master. We escaped with 9 and a bit minutes to spare.

Everything you would expect in an escape room can be found in the Forbidden Room of Fun. If you are an adult who loves board games but the expeditious nature of life has kept those games on the shelf, this is the room for you! The nostalgia value cannot be overstated.

Your Game Master offers two level of game; standard and easier. We tried the standard room with an added new puzzle that had never been played before. As a two-player team, this was one too many challenges to take on and resulted in us not escaping (according to Mia). That said, the puzzles were time-consuming rather than extremely complex.

There was an ideal mix of modular and linear puzzles, with physical and logical puzzles thrown in so that there is something appealing to every player of every age!

It was a real struggle to find anything to criticise in this escape room! Nevertheless, if we’re being extremely picky, we would highlight how certain puzzles require more creative thinking when trying to solve them. Without spoiling anything, it would be down to the experience of the player as to how quickly they figure out patterns and game rules.

Truly a brilliant experience; if you have an hour to spare in Basingstoke, you could do far worse than get Trapped in Fiction!

A wonderful escape room packed full of enjoyable puzzles that would be ideal for any puzzle lovers - but particularly good for escape room novices. The story was good, our games master was lovely and I can't wait to see what they build next! Very reasonably priced too

This was the best escape room I have done so far, went as a group of three 11 yr olds for a party with a bit of help from 2 adults. They just about managed with a little help, and thoroughly enjoyed it. The theme was great for kids too (and adults), which wasn't the case with the last one we picked locally.
