I've done a number of escape rooms and this has to take the award for being the most professional and organised event. The venue is huge and all in keeping with the scenarios that the rooms are set in. The staff were enthusiastic and really got into role to set the scene (Abbie was excellent).

It was just the 2 of us doing the Samurai room which was pretty challenging, but we managed to escape in time. The decorations and themes were brilliantly finished off and the room we did was full of surprises.

I would recommend this event to anyone in Birmingham who has an hour to spare, or as an event to get together before exploring more of Birmingham. It's central location is a huge bonus as many other Escape Rooms are located in industrial areas or on the outskirts of towns.

Overall, very swept up and a challenging and rewarding event that people of all ages will enjoy.

Hello Noble Samurai, great work on beating Tanaka’s curse just the two of you! Thanks for the fantastic review! It means a lot to us that you've taken the time to write this up for us; thank you. At Escape Hunt we strive to create the best escape experiences around, so to hear that we are the most professional escape room you've visited is fantastic. Abbie will also be thrilled that she earnt a shout out. Now that you've escaped ancient Japan, will you be returning to stop the threat of a Nazi super weapon in 'Our Finest Hour'? We hope so!

My girlfriend and I went to Escape Hunt for our first ever escape room experience. It did not disappoint. Everyone that greeted us was very friendly and our gamesmaster Lucy was brilliant.

We played The Forth Samurai which was well designed and had interesting puzzles. Yes, we managed to escape! The whole place is clean and well presented and I would recommend it to anyone. We're definitely going again.

We visited as a team of 5 to do 'Our Finest Hour' on the 13th June and what a treat! The room was amazing, there were inventive ways to give twists and turns and all of the puzzles and props were in perfect theme. Our game master was Ash, he was really friendly and informative and as soon as we got to the room he was perfectly in character and remained so for the whole game which really added to the experience. We felt fully immersed and managed to escape with leader board time which was a bonus! Compared to other rooms we've done we all agreed this was the most themed and personal experience we have had (and you don't have to have extensive background knowledge in the themes to enjoy the rooms!). Can't wait for new rooms to arrive, we'll definitely be coming back, thank-you escape hunt!

Brilliant time with friends! The staff was lovely, Molly was an amazing host who really got into the role when giving the brief. The challenge itself was fantastic. Historically accurate with different twists. #ThreeMentAndALady
