Fantastic Escape Room
Dec. 2019 • Couples
My husband and I booked this escape room as an end-of-year treat and we had a fabulous time. The guy who runs it was very friendly and spent time afterwards telling us how we performed compared to other teams. It was insightful hearing which clues were commonly solved and which ones caught people out. The room itself is excellent and the clues are challenging without being too difficult. I would say it's harder than a beginner's room but not so hard it's frustrating. A solid mid-level difficulty room with an excellent story and a variety of clues and codes to crack. Some made us laugh, others made us oooh with excitement and some were downright genius. Thoroughly enjoyed every minute. Highly recommend it!

Independent is best!
Dec. 2019
I have passed Mind the Game many times during work hours and have finally managed to get myself down there to play Dr Ivanov's Serum! I absolutely loved it. It feels like an independently owned escape room, and I have a soft spot for small businesses-- I like to support the small business owners! So the game is very well loved by the host, and the host shows this with his hospitality! Very well worth investing in and playing!
The escape room was fantastic and challenging in all the right ways! Really good way to exercise the noggin'. :)
I enjoyed Mind the Game very much and wished there were more rooms to complete! :)
Thank you so much for hosting us, and the homemade biscuits were a treat! <3 <3 <3

Excellent Escape Room!
Dec. 2019
Excellent escape room! We were 2 brothers (28 and 16) and it was my second and my brother's first escape room experience.

Having something to compare it to, I would say this is a great escape room. We made it out with around 2 minutes to go but needed some hints. I did feel that at times it wasn't as exciting as the previous room I had done, but hey, all rooms are different and this was my first single room escape room (the previous one we had to go through multiple rooms). No language or prior knowledge is required.

The thing I loved the most was that we got a lot of feedback afterwards by the owner. He told us where people generally struggle, what we did well, and how we both complemented each other. He also told us the best times for this room and how we compared against them. We found this a really interesting part of it because my last escape room hosts didn't tell any of this.

Only thing I would say is maybe have the opportunity to take off our coats before going in and be told about whether it would be cold inside or not. And the instructions to the last step of the room could've been a bit clearer. We were a little confused by the 3 minute instructions (don't want to give any hint, but I'm sure the owner will know what I'm talking about)

Overall, highly recommended and an excellent escape room at very decent prices and with free parking (on Sat/Sun) on the streets outside.

Great escape!

My friend and I have done several escape rooms in different countries. This was the first one we did together in London and we had a great time. It was well organized and had fun puzzles! I recommend this escape room for the beginner or the more experienced.

Great fun with a lovely host
This game is a really good mix of different cerebral challenges. I found it through searching for escape rooms which could be booked for two people, and it was absolutely perfect for that. The host is a really lovely guy who made us feel very welcome and had a great chat with us both before and after the game (as well as helping us during it). It's a strong recommendation from me :)

Fantastic team entertainment
Sep. 2019
Went with family in celebration of my daughter's birthday. This was the first time in an escape room for 3 of the team members out of 5. We all had a fantastic time and talked about it for the rest of the day. The room was very cleverly laid out and the task utilised different strengths of our team perfectly. We managed to complete the task with 5 mins spare and were very pleased with ourselves. Both the first timers and our 2 members who had been in escape rooms before found this to be a great, fun experience. The location was also perfect for us. Highly recommended.

Great date-night
Aug. 2019 • Couples
Had a fantastic experience playing this escape room. Expert communication and patience is required, and the room is challenging - we needed some hints!

Designed beautifully in a vintage style, also interesting types of clues which we hadn't seen before. You can tell just how much thought and effort has gone in conception, design and execution.

I highly recommend this for couples, friends, colleagues and families. Support this small business and go to Mind the Game! They're so passionate about it, and it shows.
