First time in Nottingham and in 2 teams we took part in the tour in which we have to find landmarks across the city and answer questions. We did it in 2 teams- girls got all of them right. Then you are giving some code cracking information to decipher the code. Great experience, great way to explore the city, did a few pub stops en route! Great fun

Today we did our first ever cryptology escape room challenge!!! We were greeted by Mark and welcomed in, we were given good clear instructions and whilst we waited a couple minutes we were very kindly left with some small puzzles to kick start the brain, oh and some sweeties (devoured by 5 hungry adults, sorry Mark). Lol

Cypherdyne
The instructions given to us were clear and set us in the right direction. We had 1 hour to complete the challenge which I won't go into any details s to not spoil it for anyone reading who hasn't tried lol. During the time in the room their is a monitor with the time displayed and sometimes there was hints on the screen to give a little nudge in the direction needed to progress.... A few more in our case lol....

Overall a fantastic experience for our family of 5 to interact in and play as a team... Something that normally we wouldn't do but today was a brilliant new thing to do. We definitely will be attempting the crypt in the future but for now we really enjoyed the first experience! Thankyou mark for making our visit epic and enjoyable and most of all FUN FUN FUN lol

P.s Mark my one criticism is that the signage on the street could be a little bit more clearer lol

Been today with my friend, my sister, nephew (12) & niece (8) & did 'The Crypt'. Huge amount of fun & great clues to figure out. Start to the room was not what I expected but seriously good fun !! Well recommended, staff friendly & funny & spoke to the kids as young adults.... well worth every penny.

Four of us (aged 34-41) went to Cryptology for my husband's birthday. He has been before to do The Crypt and loved it so this time we tried Cypherdyne. I don't want to say too much and give anything away but the whole set up is very clever - just enough to get you started and enough clues throughout to keep it fun, as well as a few red herrings.
There was an issue with 1 bit of kit while we were there which was a shame as it meant one of the staff members had to come into the room during the challenge but this didn't effect our enjoyment and despite the slight delay we still made it out with a minute to spare!
Can't wait for them to open new rooms so we can go back!

Booked this for my 12 yr olds B'day. Our group consisted of 4 boys and 1 dad. It was refreshingly different from your usual kids party experience. It required the use of your brain and team work, and when the boys escaped with only 2mins remaining there was a great celebration. It was a pleasure to talk to Mark Thomas the owner of Cryptology - who allowed myself (mum to b'day boy) and my 8 year old to watch the 'escape' unfold on the cctv cameras. A great day, and rated 10 out of 10 by the B'day boy. I would definitely recommend.
