This is a fun activity for a rainy day. The one hour goes by so quickly, but it is good fun. My two teenagers and I have been here twice now & really enjoyed it. You need a logical mind as it's not just about finding things, you need to work out sequences and decipher riddles. I must say my teenagers were better than I was at the riddles

Fantastic night in the escape room, (Mr burrodales study)getting out with 5 seconds to spare would highly recommend to everyone. We will be returning when the new escapes rooms are up and running.

6 of us went in not knowing what to expect and by the end of the hour we we're screaming answers at each other and racing to get out before the end of the clock (5 seconds to spare Too!)

Would happily do this again.

What a great idea! Really gets you thinking, the session flew over! Would highly recommend this to anyone. Very helpful staff. The only downside is the stairs to access the premises, not ideal for anyone with restricted mobility or small kids. Other than that it’s a great experience for anyone.

We turned up and were welcomed by Brian. He explained how it work and we were locked into 'The Study' - we managed to escape. We had enjoyed it that much we then decided to have a go at 'The Laboratory' and also managed to escape that with 5 minutes to spare! Personally I would say 'The Laboratory' was the best of the 2 as you have to collect tokens throughout which adds an extra element of excitment to see if you can beat the highest score for the week.
