This was my first time at an escape room and it was so much fun. This one was hard with only 4 people as it was very detailed but it was fun and worth it.

Enjoyed a couple of hours on a Saturday afternoon. Don’t wish to spoil it for anyone so will not highlight the event save to say a great way to spend a few hours and at a reasonable price.
