About
An Escape Room is an hour-long adventure with your friends, your family or perhaps your work-mates. It’s a bit like the Crystal Maze from TV, or a real-life version of an online Room Escape game. You play as a team and have to find clues, solve puzzles, and complete challenges to finish your mission in 60 minutes!

    Great time with terrific and attentive staff
    Took our ten-year-old daughter there for an escape room (1950s) and a birthday party afterward - they had a great time and the staff were wonderful, and set up the party room for us with plates, cups, water and squash, which we didn't expect, and were thoroughly attentive throughout. We had Ellie, Feyi and Materza and would thoroughly recommend them all. Also, the whole frontage of the building with the tailor's shop and the secret sliding doors is very cool. I thought it was a real tailor's shop at first.
    Thank you so much for this review :D. It was truly a joy to host your children's party and I'm really glad we were able to help make it a success! I passed on your recommendation to our games masters and they were really happy to hear it! It's always so lovely when we receive reviews like this, it lets us know we're hitting the right mark and it's always a big confidence boost to the games masters so thank you very much! ~ Matt

    Fantastic family fun
    Fantastic family experience at Exciting Escapes. The puzzles were challenging even with our Games Master Julian providing a lot of assistance. Would definitely recommend checking this out and we will be back to try one of the other rooms
    Thank you for the review and the recommendation! Thank you for the name mention for Julian, I showed it to him and he was very pleased. We'd love to have you back :) ~Matt

    Creepy and definitely stretches the brain cells
    We did the scary room for my husband's birthday (The Voices we Hear) and I found it very creepy, I got a bit emotional so my husband had to do most of the work. The room wasn't easy, quite a few number puzzles, but we made it out (with some help!) with 1 SECOND to spare! I think I would have been able to focus more if I wasn't so scared. We'd love to return to try some of the other rooms. Matt and Yas were very welcoming and patient even when I was losing my mind in the room.
    Thank you so much for this review! Sorry we scared you but equally it makes me happy to see we were doing our horror room justice. Come back any time if you'd like to play one of our not scary rooms for a rematch :) ~Matt

    Dawson as Games Master
    we were lucky to have Dawson as our Games master. He was very helpful and made our experience so enjoyable. i went with a couple friends and we had the best time. we managed to get out with 1m26s remaining thanks to Dawson help at the end.
    Congratulations on your time, agents! Another successful mission for our agency, I'm glad you had the best time. I've let Dawson know you mentioned him! If you'd like to test your wits on another of our missions, please come back any time :) ~Matt

    Up against the clock Challenging fun!
    We were a mixture of adults and children and we were all able to contribute to cracking and finding the clues. We all really enjoyed the challenge, and it was challenging. We did the music shop and would definitely go again to try a different room. We really had fun!
    Thank you for this review, I'm really happy that you all enjoyed yourselves, hope to see you again soon :) ~Matt

    Fantastic experience! Completed in record time!
    We did the 1940s church room and had an amazing time. The room is really well made, and multi layered with lots of interesting puzzles to solve. The quality of the rooms were really high, and the props really added to the atmosphere. The staff were really friendly and helpful before and throughout the game. We will definitely be booking more games in the future! Thank you for a great afternoon.
    Thank you for this review! It was a joy to host your team so thank you so much for mentioning that you found us to be really friendly and helpful, it's always nice to hear and tells me that our love of our customers is coming across :) Team [Not So] Expendables are welcome back any time! ~Matt

    Great fun for teens
    My son (14) and 3 friends enjoyed an afternoon at Exciting Escapes. At the booking stage, the manager was very helpful on the online chat, advising us which games would be best for the age group and answering other questions. The boys had a lot of fun and would definitely recommend it. Added bonus to be emailed a free digital photo to remember the event!
    We love hearing about agents who had fun playing with us, thank you for this excellent recommendation! The photo is actually one of our favourite parts! If you would like to play again, just contact us online any time :) ~Matt

    Escape birthday experience
    I booked Exciting Escapes for my daughter's 14th birthday. It was one of the few where the kids could go into the room alone, which they were desperate to do. The staff were wonderful, really helpful at the booking stage and excellent on the day. When we got there they were ready and waiting for us and ensured my daughter and her friends had an excellent time. they came out buzzing, thank you so much. Miranda

    Great Fun
    We had a great time trying to solve The Hidden Past mystery last night, great customer service and a tiny bit of help from the 'Agent'. We were a minute off of solving this complex puzzle. Could have done with more light, possible less padlocks and the label on the last clue needs sorting. But we will be back!
    Thank you for the review, agents! Come back any time :D ~Matt

    Fab Escape Room with great agents
    Fab escape room, lots of fun and great agent! We were in the Record Store escape room which really challenged us but was fab! Finished in 50mins and really enjoyed it. There were 4 of us and we split up to do the puzzles to help with time
    Thank you so much for the review! I'm really happy to read you enjoyed it, if you would like another challenge our Silence is a Virtue room would definitely be your team's cup of tea! ~Matt

Exciting Escapes in Croydon is honestly so good. I have been twice now and on both occasions have come away thinking how good the rooms where. No need to travel into London for a good escape room. This place is local and has a good selection of escape rooms to choose from. Such well thought out escape rooms and one of the best ones on a whole that we have been to. Even the fact that you can chat to a team member through the website on their direct message function is amazing. Real people get back to you and give you any info you might need to accommodate your group/request. Had nothing but good experiences here and so grateful to have found it!

Yas did a fantastic job as our Escape Room Agent and ensured our experience ran smoothly as she supported us with clues and tips to solve our challenges. We were welcomed by the owner David who made us very comfortable. The actual Escape Room we escaped from was well built, the mechanics ran smoothly and realistically and the puzzles were fun. I would highly recommended Exciting Escapes for everyone and I want to come back and bring my kids next time.

Went with friends for the start of a stag do. The team at Exciting Escapes made us all feel really welcome.
We were sent into a special room for a briefing and then sent into 2 identical rooms (The Spy theme,,, can't remember the name, sorry!).
This was my first time in an escape room, and it was a fun, interesting and required communication and teamwork. The puzzles were challenging and the props were great. A great start to the day, thanks to the team!

Another great day at exciting escapes Croydon! We went as a family of 6, this was by far the hardest we have ever done. Think we thought would be ok as last time was in they had a bunch of 10 year olds that successfully escaped this room we was doing. Do not be fooled this is hard but still really good and fun we was laughing throughout.
Amy you was a great games master thank you for your patience and tips! See you all again soon ❤️

So I have never done an escape room before, but now I'm already eyeing up my next visit.

Exciting escapes had a really immersive and entertaining room for us 'breaking the law' and our handler Destiny was really helpful, guiding us without too much hand holding.

We were all pretty new to this and decided to go in and lean into the gimmick of it, we had a fantastic time with some entertaining and challenging puzzles to solve. Even as novices we managed the room in the hour provided, but did not become bored or annoyed with the challenges we faced, (although I now doubt my proficiency if I were to ever go on the Crystal maze).

We will definitely be back for another round another time. We had a blast and all agree, one of the best activities we've done as adults. Thanks Destiny,and thanks Exciting Escapes.

Had a great time here when we played Breaking the Law. We were a team of 3 adults and 2 teenagers. Some of the clues were a bit tricky but Matt was a great host and gave us just the right amount of hints! We'll definitely be back for another game.
