Well, we didn't escape (I wouldn't advise doing this with only two people), but the staff was friendly and it is a quick activity to do in the city for a reasonable price.

Had a great time in the taken by the faeries room. Great puzzles to solve to escape. Will definitely be back to try another room. People who work there were really helpful in setting up a group.
