I went with a party of 9 others and we split into two groups, one in each of the rooms. We had a ball. I can't say too much without giving away clues but it was great fun. The young people running it were enthusiastic and took great care to see that we had a good time. All ten loved it!

Me and my partner booked this for the weekend because we were looking for something different to do and have done a lot of escape rooms and other experiences in Nottingham.
We personally didn't enjoy the treasure hunt at all. I have given 3 stars because when we went back after around 30 minutes the staff member gave us a refund and was so polite. It was really good value and I can see that visitors would maybe enjoy it.
For us to do something like this agan we would need there to be physical containers or puzzles to find. We do a lot of Geocaching and own some geocaches in Nottingham so we know it is possibe to hide physical objects even in a busy city centre. I think there really is a gap in the market for something a bit more complex.
I also think the route and clues need working on. The tour included some areas around the university which I think look dreadful but missed out some beautiful areas in the park area.
I woud consider doing the escape rooms at Cryptologic and although this review sounds quite negative I can really see what the guys were trying to achieve with the treasure hunt, it just wasn't for me!

We were really disappointed to receive a 3 star review from you...

We've had the odd group that felt the same as yourselves (about 2% of customers) so we've been making changes to adapt the game as necessary.

Unfortunately, during the opening of the tour you played, you didn't get to Derby Road or the parts of The Park which you would have been pleased to see. You also didn't get to the complex Endgame puzzle that involves using the answers you collect throughout the tour which could have been more to your taste. We can see that as a Geocacher you felt there could have been more to do. We do appreciate your feedback and the notes you left were very welcome as we are currently developing another more challenging experience with a different route. It should be ready within early 2018 and I think that it may tick your boxes better.

It will probably not include physical caches as this can be a difficult thing to manage when you have multiple tours setting off during one day and we wouldn't want paying customers to not be able to complete the game due to something missing, or in use by another group.

As you can hopefully tell from your experience and the refund received, we primarily focus on making sure people enjoy themselves and offering the best service we can. We really hope you'll be back to try one of our Escape Games and we'll hopefully get a better rating from yourselves.

A brilliant way to spend an hour... the time just flew- as you watch it tick down- time is running out, will you escape?? 5 of us played, age range 11-47, all of us loved it!
