    Great family fun!
    This was our first visit to an escape room, so we booked candy crush and it looked like fun for all the family. We were greeted and explained how the game worked by Rachel, she was knowledgeable,friendly and very enthusiastic about the escape room. We are family of four with two daughters aged 13 & 16. The room was great fun and we would have no hesitation in recommending Blackout Escape room, we will definitely be coming back and want to do more rooms! Thank you Rachel, we had a great time!

    Excellent
    Booked the venue for my daughter's b'day. I was bit skeptical as we were not allowed to go and see what the rooms look like (I guess this is a standard policy for Escape rooms) but my daughter and her friends had loads of fun and Alice was brilliant. I was so relieved and my daughter said she would love to come again. They did Candy shop Escape room

    So much fun!
    This was such an amazing experience and so much fun. Our host was Tracy and we did the cabin in the woods room. Tracy did a great job of setting up the story and hyping us up before we went into the room. The room was excellent with hidden rooms within it and it was brilliantly decorated with loads of spooky stuff lying around. We managed to escape with the help of a quite a few hints! And couldn't stop laughing afterwards because we had such a good time trying to escape.

    Brilliant Father's Day!
    Such good fun! Went for Father's Day and we did the Cabin In The Woods room. Highly recommended with great selection of puzzles, good difficulty level and a few scary jumps! Will definitely go back to try all the other rooms! If you're considering going, don't hesitate - you won't regret it!

    Fantastic experience!
    First time visit for our family so I booked the Candy Shop as it looked like it would be good for everyone and it really was. We visited for my mums 70th birthday who had never done an escape room before and she absolutely loved it. Great welcome, everyone was so friendly and we got a really detailed explanation of how the game worked which really helped being first timers. The puzzles were really well thought out and my daughter loved all the sweets that we won along the way. Overall a fantastic experience for everyone. Really made mums day. We will be back!

    Hostage Escapees
    Great family experience in the Hostage room. Group was 3 adults, 1 15 and 1 11 year old. Lots of great puzzles to solve. Hosts were warm and welcoming and very helpful with a few hints when we needed them. Highly recommended set up.

    Best escape room in UK
    Really great room, we've done 3 out of the 4 rooms and always leave really impressed. You can tell the rooms are high quality and puzzles which make you think. The staff are always friendly as well. Would love for there to be more rooms to try!

    A great escape room experience!
    Went for my friend's birthday and had a fab time. My friend chose the Nightmare escape room with a live actor and it was great fun. Rachel was lovely and gave us a clear brief on what to expect. Annie was a great actor, staying in character even as we left. I would definitely want to go again and experience the other rooms.

The experience was so amazing and all the staff we're friendly and very welcoming.
The rooms are all different and all of the traps and tricks work.
Definitely had a good time and even went twice because of such a good deal.
Definitely give it ago!

Totally loved this escape room. We did the candy shop with myself, husband and two kids, age 12 and 9. Tibi, our games host, was wonderfully welcoming, making sure he explained everything clearly and that we were happy to begin. The puzzles were a great mix of easier and trickier! We really appreciated that there were no limit to the hints we could ask for (we did ask for a few!!), and this meant that although the time did tick by very quickly, we felt more relaxed knowing that when it was getting frustrating we could have a tip. The escape room has lots of locks but totally different ways to get each answer so there's no feeling of repetition, it's a lovely set-up with bright colours and friendly vibe. I read about the sweets in another review and it's true - every step you get right there's a prize of sweets to keep you going (and enough to last for after, Tibi kindly brought up sweet bags at the end to help us carry them all out).

In short - yes, go, it's fun, colourful and a lovely way to spend an hour!

Excellent escape room both the adults and kids loved it. It was challenging enough to keep us entertained for nearly 45 minutes, the sweets when you got each puzzle right were mush appreciated too.

Wonderful time today at Blackout MK! Rachel, our host was super welcoming and made the experience really fun!

We did the Candy Shop today as it was a family of four and we felt this would suit everyone best but we'll be back for sure to try out some of the scarier escape rooms!

Hello taniaa, Thank you so much for a great review and Rachel is so happy to hear you had wonderful time. Candy shop is a great room for beginners and players who don’t want anything scary. We look forward to welcoming you do a scary room 👻🔪

We (me, my husband and 7 year old son) did the Candy shop escape room and absolutely loved it! The mixture of puzzles was fantastic, both the room and plot were super fun and the sweets we were given throughout were a bonus that helped keep my son excited and engaged all the way through. Rachel was our dedicated member of staff and she was fantastic. She asked at the beginning if we'd like any prompts if we seemed stuck and we said yes- so if we were spending a lot of time with an incorrect theory she would send a little suggestion through to the screen in the room. She timed these perfectly and worded them well so we still had a bit of thinking to do, but it helped us get back on the right track. I would highly recommend this to anyone, especially families. Don't be put off by the posters for the other (scary-looking) rooms as this one is ideal for children and anyone that is young at heart.

Brilliant! Great room (Hostage), Very tricky but the right level of tricky and no stupid puzzles that don't make sense. Great service but the guys running it, really helpful and accommodating for a late booking. Loved it.

Can't add photos as not to give the puzzles away!
