    Great escape rooms just outside of Bury St Edmunds
    Having done over 90+ rooms, we can confidently say that these rooms were excellent. If you are new to rooms, he had a fun practice board before you start. Lots of fun puzzles and a great atmosphere! Jonny was a fantastic GM and even gave us a sneak peak at the next three rooms coming soon. We can't wait to go back!!

    Prison Blues - really challenging room.
    I had a lovely trip yesterday o round off the Easter break with my son and his friend (both 9 years old). Our host Johnny explained the game to the boys and ran through a couple of puzzles to get them engaged and interested in the types of puzzles that they would be solving. We took on the Prison Blues room and with help from Johnny the time flew by and the boys enjoyed it immensely. The boys found the escape room a lot of fun and they are very keen to return to do the Sherlock Holmes escape room ASAP. My son and I have done other escape rooms and this was a fantastic one. Thanks Johnny and see you soon!

    Saving Sherlock Holmes!
    Visited with friends. Very well themed with good intro beforehand to familiarise players with the types of puzzle they may experience. Well paced with hints when needed to keep things moving. Would definitely go back to do the other room. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

    Our debut Escape Room
    This was our first ever Escape Room and if they are all like this, we’ll definitely do more. Johnny was really helpful and welcoming. He really helped us (2 adults plus kids aged 8 & 11) to get ready for what we were embarking on, showing that he really wanted us to enjoy the experience. We did! Would thoroughly recommend.

    Great detective fun
    Visited today as a group of 5, did the great detective room, was fantastic really challenging but great for all ages group ages from 9-50. The owner was really helpful, even starting with a little puzzle to start us off, gave us clues where needed but nothing spoilt the game. Will definitely be back to try out the other rooms.

    Amazing!
    Me, my partner and mum were lucky enough to test out their new room and had an amazing experience! I’ve also played their prison room before. The puzzles are well thought out and the right level of challenge to escape just in time, and lots of fun! The hosts are always lovely, and happy to go through the rooms with you afterwards. We will definitely be returning for the Sherlock room. Thank you so much!

    Warm welcome
    My daughter and I rocked up here and were met by Jonathan who was really helpful and friendly. Loved his brain warm up puzzles to get you into the swing of thinking. The rooms were imaginative and fun to play and we had a fantastic evening in the forest, the prison and the detective room. The forest is probably my favourite. a big space with a lovely set, and I especially loved the bear! Big Thankyou for having us.

    Go straight to jail!
    We had an amazing time in this escape room! The guy running it is very funny and welcoming. We did escaping the prison which he described as the chaos room and he wasn't wrong. Highly recommended, good price, friendly! We'll be back :)

    Amazing Escape Room Experience
    We visited the Suffolk Escape Academy earlier today and really enjoyed it. Some real thought has gone into the room we did and there was some really cool surprises (no spoilers!). Can’t wait to go back and do the other two rooms Highly recommended if escape rooms are your thing!!

The Forest Escape room was amazing. Bespoke and wonderfully crafted, unique puzzles, excellent theme, and good balance of clue-giving. Plus the staff inside are delightful!

I took my wife and our two children (14 & 16) to this escape room and it was brilliant. We had a really useful warmup with the organiser to get us thinking about the type of puzzles that might be inside the room. The room itself was lots of fun and we needed all our brains to try and figure out how to get out and there were some really cool and unique puzzles to entertain us. I would thoroughly recommend this room

We've done several escape rooms as a family and the Prison escape room was up there with the best of them. Fun puzzles that were not too difficult, meaning everyone could join in. We did need a few hints here and there, and only just made it out in time! The guy who runs them was very warm, chatty and welcoming. Would definitely recommend for a fun family activity if in the area.

We booked very last minute this morning after being let down elsewhere. Jonny was brilliant, friendly and such an amazing host. We chose the Jungle and loved finding all the surprises along the way. After, Jonny made contact with the owner of the mini golf so we could get a game in there too. Amazing little find and will definitely be back for more 😊 x

What a lovely man who runs this escape room! We had a great time. The rooms are laid out really well, they are difficult but not impossible so you do not get frustrated and the clues are just enough to keep you going but not spoil it. We hope to return this week :)

WOW we played the new room: Chapter 4 The Forest - outstanding mix of puzzles - so clever and so enjoyable to do! Even though we didn't escape in time we still had a fantastic time trying! Thoroughly recommend Suffolk Escape Academy - Jonny is a brilliant host and clearly a clever guy designing his games - we will be back! Thank you.
