    Fantastic escape rooms, friendly staff, just an all round fantastic experience.
    Did Casino Heist today for a birthday and it was brilliant! It was tricky but so much fun, and the birthday boy loved it. He came out to balloons, party hats and milkshake with a candle in it which was an absolutely wonderful and unexpected touch. I have been before with friends from work for a different room and that experience was fantastic also. The staff are fantastic and so friendly, there's free retro games to play while you wait and loads of props for photos too. Staff go above and beyond to make your experience special, I would thoroughly recommend Escape Basildon to anyone who wants to have fun doing something a bit different!

    5* Escape Room Experience
    I took my son and his friends (12 and 13 yr olds) to the Phasmahobia room for his 13th birthday and OMG the room was amazing and the staff are out of this world! They gave us some extra help as we were pretty useless and made it a perfect evening for my son and his friends! I’d recommend this place 100% for a brilliant outing and that particular room is wonderful - it’s billed as scary but we were all ok! 5*

    Locked in and didn’t want to leave!
    Visited and played Casino Heist with two pre-teen children. Georgia and Sam ensured the children were entertained whilst we waited for the room to be set up again (we were early), and both were genuinely enthusiastic about not just our visit but escape rooms in general which was infectious! A quick safety briefing later and we were ready to go. Georgia, as Games Master ensured we kept on track without giving us too many hints, and made sure that we understood everything we missed when the game was complete. More recommendations of other games to play followed during the debrief and it was clear that both were very passionate about their field, which encouraged us to plan to visit again. Thoroughly recommended, a fun game made even more enjoyable by the hosts. Thank you!

    Great experience, great staff.
    We had a great time at escape live Basildon! not sure of our hosts name, but he was a young boy and was lovely. made our experience really amazing and a really friendly guy. We did the Phasmophobia room - isn’t massively scary, lots of sounds and banging. But definitely scary if you’re not into horror and most importantly lots of fun! Makes a change to traditional Escape Rooms. Wasn’t too difficult but I think it was one of their easier rooms. Great experience, would recommend!

    Loved it!
    Loved it!!! We did the three broomstick Harry Potter type themed one. We were very excited and Kate fed our enthusiasm. We did it in an hour and 10 with lots of clues. Kate helped us when we needed without giving to much away. A puzzle for everyone from musical to alphabet to cryptic, it was fab thank you *top tip* go in fancy dress to add to the experience! They love it there!

    Great family fun
    The assistant Katie was so helpful, we ended up having extra time. It was fun and we really had to use our brains and work together. As it was just me and my daughter is took a little while. It was clean, tidy and everything was in working order. Thanks Katie and Basildon escape.

    A great experience
    Visited the Escape rooms with 19 children for a group activity. Staff were really friendly and helpful. Good organisation. All kids cracked their rooms - with some needing a little extra time and help which was not a problem.

    Great experience
    We did the Harry Potter themed 3 wands escape room. The young guys who met us on reception and then got us set up were very friendly and welcoming. The games itself was done very well. Lots of clever clues, props & gadgets. I will def be going back to try the others.

    A great experience.Thoroughly enjoyable!!!
    Today we went to the escape room and our theme was phasmophobia. The staff was very welcoming and friendly and the woman who oversaw our game was very professional,polite and enthusiastic. Our group of 6 had a great time and with literally seconds left completed the game. We highly recommend escape rooms and n basildon. A thoroughly entertaining and enjoyable experience 😊

Fantastic experience, so much better than we anticipated! Sarah was absolutely fabulous, giving just the right amount of encouragement/advice when needed , her enthusiasm and energy transferred to us , cannot recommend this experience highly enough, it’s a MUST to visit . It was our daughter’s birthday and Sarah had left a bottle of fizz and a lovely card for her , very much unexpected but a very kind gesture. We shall be returning many times with family and work . Thanks again Escape Basildon .

Went for the phasmophobia room for mine and a mates birthday. It was great! Had a blast seeing a few of my friends jump at the scares. We managed to escape and had a lovely chat with the manager after. Its great to see how much care and attention is put into the designs of the room and keeping them on theme with their theme. Will be returning to try some of their other rooms.

We have been twice now, two different rooms and both have been fantastic. The staff are super friendly and could not do enough for you. 100% going back for the third room and then going to go back around the end of the year for the new Christmas room!

We attended today for a general visit. 2 of us were Escape Room virgin, however our host Elle was very helpful and explained everything to put us at ease. We did The Illusionist room which was very well laid out and had a good variety of puzzles and challenges. Once we found the first clue we were well in the zone! An excellent way to spend a Bank Holiday.

Went on Saturday 13th April 2024
Lewis was an excellent host and made us feel really comfortable. We decided to try Axe throwing and Lewis explained everything clearly and helped select fun games for us to do.

Would 100% go again.

Thank you Escape Live Basildon.

We came today for the first time and had a brilliant time. We did the Three Wands room which was a Harry Potter themed room. We were a group of 6 (4 x adults and 2 x teens). Easy to book over the phone and the staff member Lily was fabulous. Very friendly and helpful and didn’t put any time pressure on us - even though we were wasting time putting costumes on and having photos taken! Only negative was that the rooms were pretty cold and the marker pens to make notes with had run out. But it definitely didn’t impact the enjoyment we had from the experience. Thanks so much xx

Hello. I had my daughter’s 15th birthday party here and it was amazing. Lovely friendly staff and a great experience. The escape room was very atmospheric and it really delivered. The whole place is really clean and the escape rooms are challenging but they are do able and fun. I 100% recommend for parties or a fun day out. (Written by my daughter) thank you so much for a lovely experience x

5/5 for our experience. Ellise was a great coach. As 4 middle aged women out celebrating a birthday, we didn’t know what to expect but can honestly say, we loved it and are planning on going back and will be booking one of the rooms to do.
Thanks for a fun evening xx
