Great time for 5 of us this morning at Deadlocked. Robin was really enthusiastic and the room itself let our imaginations run wild. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for an escape room in the Reading area.

Hi! We recommend teams of between 2 and 6 per room at once. We can accommodate more at once if we run two rooms at the same time, or for certain special requests.
