    Great craic for all
    Beau and the gang were class and very friendly. We had a great time doing Magic Emporium. Half of our team had been to an escape room before and we had some newbies to escape rooms and we all had a hand in solving the puzzles. The UV light was very fun on gel nails.
    Thank you Chloe for the 5* review! We are so grateful for our team and thanks for the mention. Magic Emporium is a very diverse room and we are so happy we could suit your group. Hope to see you guys back in the near future. P.s. The smiley-faced nails were indeed EPIC under the UV light!

    Give it a go!
    Went today as part of a group of friends. We had booked the Save the City rooms and played against each other to see who could escape first! Never having done an escape room we didn't really know what to expect. Once we got in and started it was really fun! The puzzles were taxing but not overly hard, use your brain and you'll be OK! We will return to try another room at some point. Friendly staff and good location, just across the road from a few restaurants for dinner! As I said, we'll be back! You will want to be as well!
    Thank you for the 5* review and such kind comments. We are passionate about giving our customers the best experience possible. So happy you had a great time and can't wait to see you guys back!

    Fantastic Experience
    What a great hours fun. From the moment we arrived the girls at the desk were attentive, funny, welcoming & a pleasure. The game itself, Magical Emporium was really great, lots of red herrings, great interaction between the adults & teens & the whole experience was excellent. Would definitely recommend & will be back.

    Excellent fun!
    Completed the ‘Save the City’ room. Some tricky parts but we got to the very end and unfortunately ran out of time by a matter of seconds. But … all in good fun. This is our second visit and we will happily return again. Big thank you to Aidan and Anna for being so welcoming and encouraging. An excellent experience all round. Hugely recommended for a day out. We will be back soon!
    Thank you for the amazing 5* review! We are happy you enjoyed it. Thank you for mentioning the staff, they are our biggest asset. We can't wait to welcome you guys back soon.

    Fantastic fun and plenty of options
    Amazing fun, had 6 active escape rooms with apparently more being built. Claudia and Anne (apologies if spelt wrong) where fantastic hosts, amazing help and very friendly, it was my first time in an escape room and will definitely be going back. Lovely clean facilities, you can just walk in if there is rooms available but probably best to pre-book to avoid disappointment! There is many options, very good puzzles, different difficulties and styles A**** highly recommend, got trip advisor just to review this place it deserves it
    Thank you for the amazing 5* review! We're so glad you enjoyed and thank you for mentioning our amazing staff. We hope we have started your escape room addiction, and to see you guys back soon.

    Amazing
    Amazing place we just happened to find, walked in and the man with an American accent went out of his way to try and fit us in. He went through all the different rooms with us and was happy answering any questions. While we were waiting he kept us updated and made sure we weren't waiting to long. When we got into the room the staff were more then helpful when you got stuck on solving the puzzle. Honestly couldn't recommend this place enough, so much fun and staff are lovely. There was a girl on too and she was very friendly and helpful definitely can't wait to get back. Thanks again to yous both we haven't stopped talking about it!

    Great escape room experience. Family friendly and excellent fun.
    Had a great time today with my family in the Witchcraft and Wizardry room. First time trying an escape room and found it really entertaining with lots of fun surprises along the way. Great staff really helpful and friendly. Would definitely recommend and will be going back again.

    Magic Emporium family visit.
    Stumbled across this place during a trip next door to clip n climb. Visited with myself, a 13,11 and 8 year old. Was a bit worried that we wouldn’t be able to escape and that it would be completely up to me (the adult) to solve the clues. How wrong I was. My 8 year old poked around the room the whole time and found lots of clues that we needed. The 11 and 13 year olds brains worked in a way that mine didn’t. Between the four of us we escaped ‘Magic Emporium’ in 40 minutes. We didn’t specifically ask for clues but the team were aware when we were taking a bit longer to find a clue and they gave little hints. This was very much appreciated as it kept the game going. It’s not easy finding something different for a family to do together but this was an excellent find. The kids have already decided the next room they want to try! Lovely staff which made for a pleasant visit. Thank you we will definitely be back.
    Thank you for the amazing 5* review! We love hearing about experiences with our rooms and what an amazing experience it sounds. We are so happy you enjoyed it and hope to see you back for another of our fantastic rooms.

We booked the magic room for our family of 4. Youngest child is 9. We didn’t expect to enjoy it as much as we did but it was brilliant! So well organised. Ryan and Daniel were so helpful and accommodating. It just lasts an hour, so not too long for children. I’m not sure how much younger kids would enjoy though. I’d say 8 and up but it depends on the child. It was great to have an activity that the whole family could get involved in.

Me and 2 others played the Jester escape room and do not recommend it. The prop design was impressive, the early puzzles were very well thought out, challenging, and fun. However, a certain ‘challenge’ during the middle part of the game I would argue was completely against the nature of escape rooms. Escape rooms are meant to have puzzles that you can ask for help for if you are stuck, however with this ‘challenge’ in the game it was not possible. Either you could luckily complete this ludicrously difficult and sometimes faulty challenge, or not. It was not even fun as we spent our last 25 minutes watching one of us try complete this game, able to do nothing else (we even asked to skip it to not avail). This part of the game was simply put, bad game design. I will say the staff were charismatic and helpful as per and we have played, and failed, many of the other rooms and would recommend the excellent Area 51 room or the equally brilliant Houdini room. Would genuinely love to try this room again if this section was either made significantly easier, or just removed altogether.

Had a fantastic time at Escapade HQ last night. Enjoyed the escape room we booked so much we stayed to do another! The team really make the effort too and get you pumped up which is great.
So much thought and detail goes into the escape rooms, with lots of hidden tricks and really cool effects.
We will definitely be back to try the challenge of the newest escape room!
Thanks again to everyone at Escapade HQ who provided such an entertaining evening for our friend’s visit!

We did Area 51 escape room. There were 6 adults and we found it challenging but great fun. Klaudia helped us out with a hint to get going. Well set up and thought out. I’d definitely go again. Maybe practice makes perfect.
