Great trip for the family. The 3 boys enjoyed themselves trying something completely new. Scary but amazing. Chris and Scott were absolutely great, instructing and encouraging. Thanks for a great afternoon.

We done the Escape the Hills activity and it was brilliant! Really tricky puzzles making you think outside the norm. The staff were really friendly and funny, allowing us to relax and have a really good time! Definitely recommended!!
