We have been twice and enjoyed two different rooms. We had an excellent time both times! Highly recommend to anyone as we took our 9 and 5 year old son who loved helping out and opening the boxes etc.

My first ever experience with an escape room and I was only there with one friend so we were 'a bit short-handed' and were never going to break any time records. Having said that we did manage not to disgrace ourselves. My only real complaint...More

We played the Mutiny with our Daughters who are 22 and 12. The 12 year old cracked some of the padlock combinations and our 22 year old really got stuck in. We loved the experience as it was a great family effort. Can’t wait to...More

I personally don't think the place is suitable for a pram, you have to go up about 15 stairs just to get up in the reception, and you cant take a pram into the small escape rooms, there is not enough room.
