However, our confidence was quickly shattered in this extremely challenging room experience. It is certainly not suitable for...More

Great fun for team building or family would definitely recommend. We did the pirate room didn’t crack it but great fun. Others did Kidnap room they cracked it, another team did Alien room they didn’t crack it but again we all had a fab time.

It will only be those that book for the slot that are in the room, we don't mix any other players in the room. So if you book a certain slot you have exclusive use for the room for that slot.
