We took on the "spy room" as a couple, and had an absolutely fantastic time. I absolutely don't want to give away any spoilers, but the puzzles were imaginative, brilliantly themed and full of high quality props and unexpected surprises. The guy running our event (I think he must be Paul that we'd exchanged emails with?) was super friendly and passionate about the room... and I suspect he generously gave us an extra minute or two to finish near the end as we were so close to solving the final challenge.

In short: we'll be returning to tackle the other two rooms with a group of friends, and will be recommending LockHouse to everyone we know.

Hi Dan,

Thank you very much for visiting and taking the time to write a review. Pleased you enjoyed Paul's hospitality and the puzzles in Secret Agent (or the 'spy room' as it's affectionately referred to by almost everyone) ;).

We hope to see you and your friends again soon, where we hope you'll enjoy our other games as much as you enjoyed Secret Agent.

Kind regards,

Lewis from Lockhouse Games

Four of us ventured into the Egyptian Tomb room and thoroughly enjoyed it. Atmosphere out front was great with games to keep you occupied as you wait for your slot. Puzzles were challenging and a great variety to ensure all of us had to pitch in and bring different skills.
The only disappointment was being 5 minutes off the record time!

We will definitely be returning to escape the other rooms.

Hi Kristiana,

Thank you very much for your review, and we're pleased you all enjoyed Egyptian Tomb. Unlucky with the record, but you've done really well to get that close! We'd love to see you again at Lockhouse for either Armageddon or Secret Agent, our other two games, where I'm sure you'll give the record another go!

We had a great time and enjoyed the Armageddon room (getting out in 45 minutes). It was clever, but we appreciated that it was approachable even when it was the first time doing an escape room for 3 members in our group. We had a 14 year old who was worried about the potential for a scary experience but she had a great time in the end as the focus is on solving puzzles. There was a minor malfunction with one of the items in the room but the team handled it professionally and without breaking character. We are certainly looking forward to trying the Egyptian room in the future for a slightly more challenging experience.

We apologise that you experienced a slight issue with the game, but I'm pleased it was rectified quickly, and we're always working to improve reliability across all three of our games. It'll be great to see you again to play Egyptian Tomb!

A great evening at Lockhouse playing the Armageddon room!
On a previous visit to Lockhouse we had fun but a couple of puzzles had not been reset properly. We spoke to Paul and he asked us to come back and play again to ensure we had a 5 star experience, we arranged to come back and this visit was excellent. It was clear that Paul and his team had acted on our feedback and the excellent recent reviews for Secret Agent show that we just had an unlucky visit, this time definitely made up for that and we can't wait to come back and play the final room we haven't visited!
Thank you for a great evening!

I sent my teen daughter and three of her friends on the Secret Agent mission for a birthday treat, not really knowing what to expect. They LOVED it. The puzzles were challenging but not ridiculously so - it definitely required all four brains to solve them as the girls seemed to have different knacks for different types of puzzle. Apparently the person giving the clues put on a fake Hungarian accent, which they found hilarious. They were quite pleased with themselves for having solved all the clues with only 24 seconds remaining. On the basis that my teen is discerning in her tastes (i.e. very difficult to please) I would say that she has given LockHouse high praise. I can't wait to go myself!

Hi Miss A,

Thank you very much for coming to Lockhouse and taking the time to review us, and I'm happy your daughter and her friends loved their game. I cannot confirm nor deny whether the Hungarian accent was fake or not ;) They did very well to escape from Secret Agent, as it's our hardest game, and we'd love to see you all here again soon to play either Armageddon or Egyptian Tomb, our other two games.
