    Loved it - would recommend.
    We loved our visit to Escape Rooms Cardiff! A family of 6, with ages ranging from 10 to 68, there was something for everyone to get involved it. We took on the Cardiff Castle room and really enjoyed it. The theme and room decor were fantastic. Would definitely recommend. We look forward to visiting again and trying a different room. Our host Kayleigh was great too!
    Hi there! Thank you for your review. We are glad to see that you enjoyed our Cardiff Castle room and that Kayleigh was a great host for you all. Hope to see you again soon for your next challenge! :)

    Great escape rooms in Wales
    Went to the 13th floor escape room and had such a great time! Loved the variety of each escape room since some can be vast with space which makes it really immersive and some are quiet small yet extremely detailed. The staff are always nice especially Dom who helped me locate my bag when it went missing which shows the love and the unity have towards working in escape room cardiff! The bad side writing this review is that i've done all the escape rooms here but would love to revisit the ones i haven't tried in years again.
    Hi, thank you for your kind review! We are very pleased that you enjoyed our new 'The 13th Floor' room and found the space immersive. Also that Dom was a great host for you all and helped towards your experience. Hope to see you revisit again soon! :)

    Great variety of puzzles, perfect length
    Had such a fun time. 3 of us did Enigmista and it was just the right amount of difficulty and had a nice variety of puzzles. Charlie was our host and she was absolutely lovely and very helpful and would highly recommend going again and having her host. Would love to go back again.

    Great Fun
    Visited with my family - 4 of us including 14 and 12 year old in April. We did the Cardiff Castle room. Staff were friendly and welcoming. The room itself was fun, one obscure feeling puzzle which we got a clue on but the rest we managed to figure out. Theme was good and the rooms and sections involved all laid out well. Would visit and do another room if I was in Cardiff again.
    Hi there, thank you for your kind review! So glad that you enjoyed your time playing our 'Cardiff Castle' room with us. Hope to see you again soon to tackle your next challenge with us! :)

    The Best Escape Room Venue
    Absolutely outstanding venue. I’ve done a number of escape room packages now and this is by far the best I’ve found. The quality of the set-ups is unreal and completely immersive. I regularly return when they set up a new room and will continue to keep going!

    Now you see me, now you don't
    One of the best escape room experiences I've had! (with over 12 under my belt now). We had a fantastic host, who was very entertaining from the start (even with instructions) and guided us with just the right amount of hints... We tried the Occulus room out and it was equally challenging and haunting. An incredibly immersive room and experience. Will definitely look at returning and trying out another high quality room.
    Hi there! Thank you so much for your kind review, we are glad that you enjoyed our 'Oculus' room and thought your host was great. Hope to see you all again soon to tackle your next challenge with us! :)

    A great escape room experience.
    This escape room venue was excellent. The reception staff were very welcoming. Our Games Master Todd was very funny and helpful. The game itself had a really good level of challenge. We did Oculus which was a serial killer themed game. Thankfully we managed to get out just in the nick of time. We would highly recommend a visit to this escape room.
    Thank you so much for the review, we are so glad you enjoyed your experience with us in our Oculus room. It's a staff and customer favourite! We will pass this onto Todd, he'll be happy to hear he added to your experience with us. Definitely come back and try another room!

    Amazing Escape Rooms
    This is our 2nd trip to these Escape Rooms and loved them. Two minutes walk from Cardiff Castle. We did Astro Quest on Saturday with Todd who was really great. Great Eighties themed. Based around a video game. Brilliant. All clues worked and extra unexpected thrills. Perfect amount of clues given. On Sunday did Z - based around Zombies. I was the most nervous of our party of 5, doing this more ‘scary’ room, but in hindsight wish I hadn’t worried. No live actors and room bigger than expected. This room was harder than Astro Quest and we needed more clues, but another great room. Nothing ‘scary’ or things jumping out , more clues around a virus. Prob describe it as a normal Escape Room with fake blood! Both brilliant. If your first, suggest you don’t do Z as it is harder. We will be back. Thank you for a great time.
    Hi there! Thank you very much for taking the time to leave us a review, we really appreciate it! We're really happy to hear you enjoyed your experience here with us and we hope to see you again soon!

    Very Impressive Escape Rooms.
    We played as a couple in the Castle room. It was our first time taking part in an escape room so didn't know what to expect. We had a great time, the hour flew by. Our host Amelia was very helpful and we would still be in the room if it wasn't for her nudging us (sometimes we also needed a shove in the right direction!). The room was really well set up and incredibly immersive. It would be a good room to take older children in as the theme wasn't too spooky and it was a good one for new comers like us to escape rooms. We will definitely be coming back!
    Hi there! Thank you very much for your lovely review, we really appreciate it! We're so happy to hear that you enjoyed your experience with us and we will pass on your kind words to Amelia! We hope to see you again soon!

We played Astro Quest today, hosted by Felix. We had one adult and 4 twelve year olds and it was brilliant. The puzzles were varied enough that everyone got something they could get stuck into (with a few well judged hints along the way). The room itself is really well designed with some great props in an ordinary looking bedroom to start, but when you solve the first bit of the room it lets you into extra areas which are really impressively done - a proper sci fi experience..

We played Sherlock 2: Moriarty's Revenge and it was detect-cellent!

Call us Baskervillians, because we were 'hounding' to help Moriarty get revenge! We were SherLOCKed into the room by Amelia who was super engaging and reminded us why we despised Holmesy [the bugger!]. We came, we detected, we conquored the room with time to spare, [with just a little help from Meals-on-Wheels ;) ]! If you're not sure Wats,On in Cardiff, defo check out Escape Rooms! We loved it so much we didn’t want to go to our Holmes, and we will 221B back!!

2nd time here and same as the 1st thoroughly enjoyable. We managed to escape the tomb 2 with seconds to spare. Amelia was fantastic and very helpful with some much needed clues! It was a birthday treat and all the staff were fantastic, but big shout out to Amelia for making it a memorable experience.

Fantastic room and fantastic customer service.

We did Astro Quest with our 3 young children (8-11 yrs old).

Thoroughly engaging and a magical experience. We all came out buzzing.

Highly recommended.

We had an amazing experience trying the new room 13th Floor in Cardiff. The room was cleverly designed and fun. Jo was a fantastic host. She gave us helpful clues when we were going down the wrong path and wasting time on the clock. Jo helped us find out if we had already played the New Sherlock room previously by checking our email address on the system. Jo is definitely deseving of a free lunch 😉
Will be back to do the updated version of the the Tomb.

We visited ERC last night and escaped from The Tomb 2. It was hands down the best escape room we’ve ever done, the theming was incredible and it was so immersive! We thought Astro quest was amazing but this was next level! Our host Arron was fantastic and made it just an all round great experience! Escape Rooms Cardiff is pretty unbeatable when it comes to their rooms! We’ve yet to find any quite as good we couldn’t recommend enough! 🧩🗝️🔒
