Our games master, Fran, made our visit thoroughly enjoyable. It was my first ever escape room and she made me feel comfortable & it was great fun! Would definitely recommend. I will be back to complete the other rooms :)

My brother and I went and we loved it. Fran was a great host as she was fun and smiling throughout (and gave a few handy hints). Puzzles where tough but doable. Would definitely recommend it!

An excellent challenge. 6 of us took part and got out with 8 minutes to spare. Only used 3 clues too. Would recommend it.
