    Classic escape room
    Really enjoyed this true classic escape room, we have done a lot of rooms before and loved this room taking it back to the roots of escape rooms. We probably didn't escape within the time, and Chris was generous with the clock! There were only two of us and there was quote a lot to do and look for and a couple of cheeky things that kept us on our toes! Chris gave us prompts just at the right time. You can decide whether you want the 'librarian' to sit in the room with you or not. This is a really good value activity for a group of adults and / or kids, plenty to do so everyone can find something they can have a go at.
    Many thanks for your kind review, Emma. We really enjoyed your visit and chatting about rooms with you after the game. Good luck with your future escapes!

    The Great Escape
    Absolutely brilliant we really enjoyed our escape experience. The librarian is a superb host! The time flew by and I'm glad to say that we got out in time. The puzzles were really well thought out and cleverly devised. Definitely recommend a visit here
    Thanks for your review. It was a pleasure to host your game and your team worked really well together.

    Great family time. Well done Valley Escape!
    Did not know what to expect, but staff very helpful and took the time to explain what was required. Clean and well maintained, clues of varying difficulties to suit all ages and levels. We had a great time and all came from there with positive responses. Highly recommend.
    Many thanks for your review and congratulations on achieving one of the fastest times recorded for this room. 🏆

    Great escape in the heart of Bannau Breichiniog
    We spent a lovely, engrossing hour in this simple but elegantly designed escape room, absolutely crammed with puzzles. We were a team of four and our host, Chris, suggested that we could tackle some of the challenges as a foursome while splitting up to deal with others. This turned out to be very good advice as there was absolutely LOADS of stuff to do. Some was easy, some more challenging, with a great deal of variety in the way the puzzles were presented. We needed three hints in the course of the hour and Chris was great at nudging us when we needed it without taking anything away from the fun of finding a solution. Highly recommended, especially for families. And we hear there may be a new room coming soon!
    Many thanks for visiting our escape room and leaving such a lovely review. We hope to launch a new game in September!

    A Great Escape Room
    A really fun first generation escape room with a nice variety of different puzzles. We played it as a team of four, which seemed like a good number for this room, as we were often able to all work on different puzzles at the same time, or work two to a puzzle. We really enjoyed it!
    Many thanks for playing at Valley Escape and for your review. We think that 4-6 is an optimal team size for the room. It's a challenge but doable for smaller teams and the open gameplay has allowed us to accommodate larger teams too.

Having done quite a few Escape Rooms, this was one of my favorites. There was a variety of puzzles, staff were friendly and assisted with clues when needed. Would highly recommend.

We booked this experience for Xmas Eve and had a great time as a family of 3. It was our first escape room and would like to say thank you to the “librarian” for all his help!!
Thank you!

This was our first escape room as a family and we all really enjoyed it. It was a great mix of puzzles we could work on individually and as a team and it worked really well having Chris, our host within the room when we needed a few clues.
Chris explained everything really well and made the whole experience really enjoyable. I would definitely recommend fitting this in to a trip to Swansea.

A fantastic find! So luck to have this in the Valley. Took 6 10/11 year olds for their first escape room and it was brilliant - the staff were fantastic, giving lots of encouragement and support and made it a fun experience for all. The puzzles were a great mix to suit all interests and abilities - there were so many to do! Great value for money. Can't thank you enough!
