We did't enjoy this escape room as the previous one we went to in Basingstoke. One of the clues was impossible to read in the near darkness, upside down and in miniscule writing which meant that we lost too much time!More

Thanks for the review Splashman50, we appreciate the feedback. We're sorry that you felt that The Chamber of the Deep was too dark in areas, the lighting in the room is intended to provide a level of atmosphere and not be a distraction from the...More

It was a good brain teaser and a good value for money. Their service offered is simple to offer as it's just a health and safety video, help with the puzzle if needed, and a congratulation when you get out. The experience is between the...More

My first visit to this type of game. 6 of us went and it cost £22 each. Before we went I thought that price seemed a bit steep, but after going, I think that was fair. We did the Intermediate Level Room. It really was...More

5 of us (3 x 30yo and 2 > 50) escaped from Dr Ryddles Memories, a first time experience of escape rooms. It was really good fun and it was certainly challenging. We would definitely come back to try another room.
