    Staff and venue outstanding!
    Just back from my sons 13th birthday and they had the time of their lives! The team at the venue couldn’t do enough to help, gave extra time for the escape and were so amazing and lovely. We’d highly recommend for the quality of the escapes and the lovely atmosphere. Thanks so much, we’ll be back again soon!

    The Heist - Escape Reality Cardiff
    Had a brilliant (albeit a rather panicked) time! Chris gave us a clear and concise intro with some good humour chucked in to break the ice. Helped us out when it was needed and allowed a great heist with 28 seconds to spare

    Enigmista escape room
    My first time in an escape room and certainly won’t be the last!!! The experience started with a warm welcome from all the staff. We were taken to our room by Chris (who I think is born to do this job). He went over the rules clearly and then told the pre-story so well, we were all captivated. The puzzles were challenging and the atmosphere was electrifying, but we escaped! Hollie and Charlie were fantastic and were waiting for us at the end to congratulate us. A really good afternoon, thank you all!!

    Great afternoon out and wonderful staff!
    Excellent afternoon activity right in the centre of Cardiff. We were there last weekend to complete The Heist escape room. The tasks were well thought out and definitely tested us, plus our host Charlie was wonderful in enthusiastically explaining our aim and the story we were involved in whilst also making the newcomers of group, who had not done rooms before, feel very comfortable. Keep up the great work Charlie! We definitely will be back!

Iwan was top class from start to finish. Explained the game well and seemed to time it perfectly when we felt like we needed a nudge in the right direction.

Due to damage caused to the game by previous players which halted our progress he added on extra time and even offered us a free game next time we come down.

We played The Heist and it was fantastic. Myself and my partner had a great time.

Hi Mahin, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. You will actually find that within the Escape Room market in Cardiff, we are actually the cheapest. Our pricing is very competitive. Regardless, we are very glad that you and your friends had a good time with us at Escape Reality. Kind regards, Chris

We enjoyed it so much we went back the following day to try a different room! We did Misery first day. Two adults and two kids (11 and 14). We got out with 50 seconds to spare if that helps anyone decide how easy/difficult it is for young kids etc. Thanks to the team there, it was great fun.
