We went as a team of 6 friends, to distract ourselves before the dreaded A Level results day, and it worked wonderfully! We really appreciated being fitted in on short notice, and the escape room itself was brilliantly done. I've done 8(ish?) escape rooms in...More

5 of us (aged 16-73) visited in August. Not our first escape room, and would rate this one highly. Lots of interesting clue solving, and a good theme. I'll say no more but well worth a visit

I tried out the Escape Cabin, run by Jack and Tom from the Escape Network, at Camp Wildfire Festival. It was great fun, combining more typical "escape the room" gameplay with some very unique, original puzzles and code-breaking. I don't want to say too much...More

Having never done an escape room before, wasnt sure what to expect. This version was all logic based puzzles, no running around looking for things, and was really well put together. The game was quite challenging but we were given clues when the organiser, Jack,...More
