First time I have ever done an Escape Room and I wasnt disappointed. Frantic, at times frustrating, a little scary but great fun. Escaped with 3 minutes to go. Recommended if you fancy something a little different to get your cogs turning.

Really good challenge, lovely staff, lots of fun. Just let them know in advance if you prefer not to be scared, they really want to make it enjoyable for you. The room we did was well thought out with good clues.
