6 of my family attended the escape room called “kidnapped”. We have an amazing time and we’re given giggles all the way through by the friendly and welcoming staff. Recommend to all!!!

Such a good day out with friends enjoyed every minute clues are testing but so much fun to try and complete before the 60 minutes are up!

Did this as a group of six. It’s an outside game so you explore Canterbury with an iPad and a secret agent briefcase to solve the puzzles. Really good, we all enjoyed it, even if we didn’t quite do it in the allotted time! Fab...More

Comfortable casual clothes is best. It tends to get warm in the escape room itself but there are hooks to hang hoodies/cardigans on the door as advised by the team member who will brief you 😊

There are a limited number of spaces outside but we parked next to Iceland about a 3 minute walk away. Think it £2.80 for 6 hours.
