    Honestly brilliant
    Thoroughly enjoyed our experience. We did the Revenants and managed to get to the final puzzle but didn't quite complete it. Really inventive escape room with a few red herrings and some really great puzzles. Very atmospheric, too, but I recommend you take a small torch or use the torch on your phone as it's quite dark. The host was brilliant- really enthusiastic, welcoming, fun and chatty. Enjoyed it so much I'm going back next week 😀

    ABDUCTED Escape Room
    ABDUCTED: Great entertainment. Everyone was able to contribute because we all had different ways of looking at things to decipher codes etc. Great for teens and adults. We managed to escape in 45 minutes and had a lot of chat about it afterwards!

    Had a great time and elley was very nice
    We had an amazing time! I have been once before and it was amazing that time to! Elley (I think that was her name she did tell it me twice) was amazing and made us feel welcome and comfortable and we used 2 clues and she was very helpful and even helped me when my dyslexia wouldn’t let me reverse a number! Highly recommend! The room was very cold though but I think added to the experience

    Couples get together
    We did two rooms, Abducted and Alcatraz. Split the groups between girls and boys. We didn't get out in time but we had a good time trying. We had to ask for help at times as it was a little difficult to follow on after solving a clue but all in all was good fun. The staff were very helpful and i would definitely go again.

    Great pirate adventure!!
    took on the Pirates challenge last night. Arrived to a really warm welcome from a really friendly team. The escape room was really good fun. Been to this establishment numerous times to do the rooms. Would highly recommend this to anyone. Easy to find and lots of parking available. Easy to book too.

    Immersive pirate adventure!
    Great experience, really appreciated the staff's enthusiastic welcome and introduction to the room. Quickly responded to us when we asked for a clue without giving us too much information. Great thought out room. Good venue with plenty of FREE parking. Will definitely be back to do another room.

    Puzzlesome day out with friends
    Didn’t know what to expect, but from start to finish really enjoyed it, the staff wee so helpful and made it enjoyable. Couldn’t have asked for a better day out to spend with friends. Gutted we didn’t get out but it was amazing! And when the staff say they will help with clues they really do come and help.

We enjoyed the escape rooms (Abducted and Alcatraz) but the main takeaway was that the staff were really friendly, welcoming and helpful!

Excellent place, would highly recommend. I've been twice now and both escape rooms were excellent, challenging and fun. Staff are all really helpful and nice aswell.
We arrived very late due to bad traffic and they still managed to get us the full hour, running past our booked slot.

We escaped!!!! We had a really good time. We were a family party age ranging from 11 to 80 and everyone had an input. We did have to ask for a couple clues but not many. We would definitely recommend for anyone 👍

When we got into the room, the first problem was the mirror used to see the numbers in the box was filthy and you couldn’t see them, the host even struggled to find them – it must have taken her 5 minutes!

15 mins went by and we were found with nothing happening, we again asked for help and apparently the box that should rise up hadn’t done so and as a result we were left thinking what to do. Our host had to come and manually raise it from the other room.

One of the flaps that should fall down from the ceiling didn't.

In the final room the pirate wheel didn’t turn properly and again even the host struggled to get it to work properly.

The host was that rushed off her feet, it took her ages to come into the room, we must have lost 5-10 mins waiting for her. Why not have a walkie talkie system like the majority of other Escape Rooms I have done do!

One staff member running 5 rooms whilst also manning the reception area is just not feasible, so it's not her fault it took her so long to come into the room.

That is also the reason I didn’t feedback any of this back to her, as she already had groups waiting and I could see the hint lightbulbs were on.

I have done over 40 escape rooms and I have never come cross any that had so many problems as this one did, the constant waiting for the host and numerous things not working properly took away any excitement and totally ruined any flow.

I emailed Preston Escape 3 days ago and surprise surprise, nothing back yet.

I would avoid the Pirates room. have done all of the other rooms there and from what I can remember they were ok, but pretty tired and run down now.

We're a family of escape room enthusiasts, so we've been to more than a few in our time. We did Alcatraz and really enjoyed the number of linked rooms that we had to work through. Unfortunately one of the locked boxes hadn't been reset properly so did feel like we skipped ahead. We then spent an inordinate amount of time focusing on a puzzle that turned out to be missing/broken. Quite frustrating! But overall we really enjoyed it and will be back to try out the other rooms

Work teambuilding event. Really good, but challenging - had to ask for two clues, but got out with 16 minutes to spare. Lovely staff, very friendly and helpful. Very reasonably priced too!

Hmm, honestly the staff were lovely but seemed overwhelmed with lots of screaming kids with a big party, I even got anxiety and felt knackered from hearing it. However the staff are lovely and upbeat no matter how stressful it was. The escape rooms it self, are okay but very dated needs updating. The building is very worn down, looks very shabby and bit like a building from trainspotting!!! it has a horrible smell of old greasy food, which was really overwhelming and made me feel bit queasy. The Decoration is just awful, cheap chipping black paint with broken doors, dirty carpets, mix match second hand sofas in the waiting room, it really really needs updating, especially on how much you pay to Do an activity. The toilets well 🤢 nope I had to hover was bloody awful, there is no need for poor cleaning and health and safety, Overall I did really enjoy the escape room,but it needs updating and a right good clean and regular cleaners and re decorating and updating, I would go again if I had too, but am taking hand sanitizer, and having a wee before I go in.
