When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Unmissable escape room, can't rate highly enough after doing all 3.

Fantastic welcome and very satisfying, unique puzzles.

My daughter and her friends had an amazing time today and it made her birthday one to remember. This is a brilliant escape room to visit so give it a try!

Fools Gold-Telford. One of my favourite escape rooms so far. Not only was the Games Master funny, helpful and just amazingly sassy, the point system was something I’ve never experienced before and it was highly inclusive; there was something for everybody.

The only personable downside I had was that it was far too dark for me and my sensitive eyes. That being said, the point system mentioned above allowed me to still take part and contribute in a really fun way. I may not have been able to help much with ‘escaping’, but I certainly helped in other ways!

Fabulous experience- I wish more escape rooms were like this!

My husband and I did The Legend of Foole's Gold - Telford. We've done a few escape rooms and are still clueless but the lovely gentleman who hosted us gave us lots of nudges so we didn't leave the room in utter disgrace (though we didn't escape!). The room itself was atmospheric and certainly on a par if not better than rooms we've done elsewhere in major cities. A great little find in Telford and we hope to do the other rooms too. Thoroughly recommend.

We visited Fools Gold - Telford as a family of 6 with ages ranging 13-56. Great room, much enjoyed by all the family. Really interactive and great host with the perfect clues at the right times! We would recommend this experience highly.

visit Clockworks Escapes as regularly as we can as we find not just the rooms challenging and fun, but the whole experience is better than any other escape room place we have been to (there’s been a few). The host(s) are perfect, get well into the role themselves and really add to the visit. a must for any escape room enthusiast.

We loved the Foole’s Gold Room in Telford and consider it one of the best rooms that we’ve done. It has many new ideas and puzzles that we hadn’t seen before and earning points as well as escaping was a fun addition.

In contrast, the Starpoint Alpha room in Wolverhampton was really disappointing. A combination of really loud background music and a host putting on a weird accent meant we couldn’t hear the clues even when they were offered. Combine this with one torch between 4 players and it resulted in a frustrating experience all round.

If you’re looking for an escape room with a host that is in character, a superbly themed room and challenging puzzles, then this is the place for you! We did Foole’s Gold (as a group of three), which had a unique reward system that we’ve never seen in any other escape room. We loved that!

Hands down, The Professor was our favourite host we’ve had in any game. You just have to meet him to find out why we liked him! It made the experience much more immersive.

We’ve done over 25 escape rooms, and this was easily at the top of our list. While we didn’t escape in time (it’s challenging!), we had a really fun time. It’s dark in this room, and while we aren’t fans of dark rooms, we didn’t mind at all because it really added to the atmosphere.

We can’t wait to play the rest of the other games, it was so good!

My partner and I have done many escape rooms in the past, but this has been my favourite! The whole interior was decorated in the theme and the host was in character and really got you excited for the room. When in the actual escape room we were surprised by the quality of the setup and the variation of puzzles - plus a very fun surpise! We'd love to return and see what the other room/s have in store.

We bought The Alleyway room and have to say it was brilliant!!!
All of us had had Escape Room experiences, but found this the best one as it made you think more and ‘outside the box’. We were met by Professor Clockwork who instantly made you feel in a different world, sarcastic but funny.
The experience was amazing - you could quite easily think 1 dimensional and think it’s just an Alley, but you would be very mistaken, sooo much more goes on.
Would highly recommend.
