My 14 year old daughter celebrated her birthday with a group of friends completing Dr Wilson’s Office. I went in to supervise but couldn’t help getting a bit involved! It was really well done, tricky but not impossible and they all loved it.

We had a little issue at the start but was resolved quickly, ended up meaning it was just the 4 of us doing it. Which was really good. Managed to do it in 43 mins. Was very fun and will be doing it again soon.

We were given tickets to the escape room as a present and weren't really sure what to expect. At most I though it would be a laugh and something different to do. We took part in "the cabin" escape room which was brilliant. The clues...More

It was a fabulous experience visiting Room 13. Although we didn't make it within the hour, I enjoyed every moment of it. This is a good way to sharpen your brain and work in a team.
