Neither of us had ever done an escape room before, we both thought we'd spend an confused hour staring at each other. We didn't, we got out. Just.
It is really hard so we asked for a few hints, if you've done these sorts of things before you might not need as many.
The story and puzzles are really well thought out.
As there were only two of us it cost £50, I think it was totally worth it but you can make it a bit cheaper by having a bigger team.
Lots of aha! moments which made it enjoyable.
They update the rooms every year or so which is great as it means there will always be new games to try.

Played both games here and must say they are very well thought out rooms and the clues are given very well managed to get out of both rooms, each one did make us think can recomend.

Two of us, for our first ever room/interactive game. What a great one too chose. Intense from the minute the first door closed! Kept us intrigued and busy with challenging puzzles. We loved it. The split between planning and execution was excellent, with just enough time for both.
Never knew this activity was so much fun and will definitely be back for more! Thank you Red House Mysteries!

We absolutely loved The Heist... the puzzles were varied and challenging. The adrenaline from the two timed sections added to the thrill to get out!!! This is one of the best escape rooms we have completed! Thanks!!!

We have been fans of Red House Mysteries from the start and have played all their rooms, so when they announced bookings were open for their new detective room we were right in there on the first day (which conveniently happened to be my birthday ). With a team of five we escaped in 50 minutes. The puzzles were challenging enough that we needed to call for a hint three times. The RHM team have done a good job of creating a new mystery within the existing set so that people who enjoyed the previous rooms can return to play again!
