Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We did the Murder at Tudor Crescent and the Beyond the Graves escape rooms on separate days and both were excellent family fun. The creativity and thought that has clearly gone into planning the rooms is so impressive. The hour went so quickly and both parents and our 11 and 13 year olds loved the challenge. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.

An absolute hidden gem. Lots of Escape rooms and a great deal if you wanted to do axe throwing also. Lots of free parking and staff could not be any friendlier. Escape room had lots of interaction and a great visual and audio performance.

Great wet weather activities. Enjoyed the axe throwing. Good safety talk and tuition, several different techniques, including underhand! Competition with two grandsons, also playing card splitting.

Booked axe throwing for a party of four. Geoff was our host and he was very accommodating, allowing us to start later than our booked slot due to two of our party getting lost on the way! He showed us different throwing techniques and facilitated a friendly competition between us.
As it was a quiet day, we were allowed to stay on longer than our booked time, making it very good value.
I can't understand why some people complain about the site. What's wrong with a bit rough and ready when you're finding your inner viking?!

Booked both Axe Throwing and Space Escape Room with my teen and young people. Brilliant fun afternoon. Well organised. Great choice of escape rooms. Friendly helpful staff. The Escape room had some different challenges which were good. The axe throwing was awesome. Would thoroughly recommend and will be back.

We were messed around with our start time before we arrived and once there the entire experience felt rushed with no briefing, taking of team names prior to the experience and no photos or debriefing after. We had 2 teams using 2 different rooms. The church was poorly maintained and falling apart and the detention was just a tiny room with clues poorly related to the theme of detention. We have done numerous other escape rooms and this was poor in comparison to the others we have done. Would not recommend.

Unfortunately we have had two poor experiences in the escapes rooms, both times some of the equipment was broken and therefore somebody had the enter the room to fix it which spoilt the theme of the room. On the second occasion a key item was broken which prevented us from progressing to the next stage. The host had to enter the room and asked us to pretend and told us what should have happened. At the final stage of the room the exit door was actually already open and only realised afterward the code we used to escape wasn’t even correct!

A complaint was raised privately in attempt to resolve the issue and we were offered compensation but after several ignored emails and many months later this offer was never followed through, hence the review.

Absolutely fantastic escape room! (we did who dunnit!) Happy teenagers! Super staff, so helpful and accommodating. Brilliant fun! I challenged the kids to complete it in 1 hour and ten minutes then they could have Crepes! They were .45 seconds too slow! 😆Can't wait to return and do another escape room in October and maybe a touch of axe throwing . A fun few hours.

Booked and paid for online. Spoke to the guy the day before to confirm timings. Turn up with the family all excited and sit in a car park for an hour with some other customers.
Place was locked up, no one answering phone. Completely unprofessional and beyond disappointing as a waste of our last day on holiday.
I have asked for a refund..can only hope I will at least get that.
Sure it’s great if they bothered to turn up- we won’t be back.
