Visited today and what a great way to have fun. My first time but the others in my party had done other escapes. Time flies and it take some thinking out of the box but I am ready to do more. Well worth a visit.

This was a great afternoon of fun. The rooms were challenging and kept us thinking all the time. We managed to escape with 7mins left so took most of the hour. Really enjoyable.

Me and my girlfriend went and did the bank heist room, both of us having done one escape room. It was a great time, with unique puzzles and excellent staff! Tom was funny and helpful, and I would definitely recommend visiting here.

We had a fabulous time today at the Cliffhanger rooms. What a well thought out activity that got us all working together on a Bank robbery. It was a really exciting hour and Helen was a great games master.
