Amazing historical-theatrical escape room games! Our first two games, 'Rescue the White Rose' and 'Sabotage the Enigma' are based on the history of the underground resistance group the White Rose, active in Germany in 1942-3.

Sabotage the Enigma was my 21st room (and my husband's 20th). We went as a group of four, with 2 experienced players and 2 less experienced players. Jase, our game master, was welcoming and explained the basics of the room. The theming was fun and the "guard" in the room was an interesting way of having the game master assisting the team as he saw fit. The puzzles were well-suited to the room and were fun to solve. We had a great time and really enjoyed it. We would love to come back and try out any new experiences they have in the future.

Thanks Clara! We really appreciate your taking the time to leave your review, and we're really glad you enjoyed it. Jace is a great gamemaster. We hope that we'll have something new, a bit different, and fun to offer you in the future!

We had so much fun doing this room (sabotage the enigma). It was a great challenge and we got out with only 3 minutes to spare. The puzzles were clever and made you think outside of the box. Would highly recommend

Such a fun and amazing room! Its a shame it was only a pop up that lasted a couple of years. Hopefully they open up again with more rooms!

Glad you enjoyed it Pauline! We would like to do something new and a bit different in the future, maybe not quite an escape room, but something like it, with puzzles and storytelling...and if so, we'll be sure to let you know!

We had a lot of fun working out The White Rose puzzle game. Had only been to an escape room once before & appreciated that this is objective based rather than escape based. The puzzles were really well put together with multiple ones happening at the same time. Our puzzle guide Zoe was really helpful when we got stuck & gave us a bit more time to work it out too. Four of us went and while we werent the most organised we all got into it and had a good night. Woudl highly recommend.

Great fun! You should go :) Host was excellent, played their part well. Puzzles are challenging. The escape is designed such that puzzles can be solved in parallel, means a dominant type can't (dominate that is) and everyone gets a chance to solve a puzzle on their own

Went as a group of four. The puzzles were challenging however, very satisfying once complete. The story was extremely interesting and the props and room were very immersive. We would definitely recommend and would definitely go again.

We came here and did the enigma room. The staff were supernice. Puzzles were challenging. It was very hot if u make it to the next room tho. No ventilation it felt stuffy and u didn’t want to be in there. I don’t think it mattered what it was outside temp wise, it was just the design of that room. A ex cool room?

Compared to other places I have been to it seemed alittle dreary to be honest. Which really affected my enthusiasm. And it wasn’t related to the nazi theme. The front entrance...and the stuffy cool room.

As a suggestion, If they had a third staff member (there were only two who were in the rooms running stuff) it would have felt more streamlined too.

Both staff were nice to deal with. But I don’t think I would come back though as there are more places out there that look less dreary.

Hi - we agree with you that the ventilation and cooling in our space in Newtown wasn't the best, and also that the property as a whole is aging considerably. We'll be looking for a new venue which is better in both these respects! Thanks for your review.

We went with a group of 7 teenagers and did the White Rose, absolutely loved it! Although 7 people was pushing it we all ended up contributing in some way or another. Great facilitator, offered all the right clues at the right times and it was a very immersive experience. Thank you!

The place was easy to find with a lovely outside area to chill out and wait for your booking or people to show up. The staff were incredible. Really lovely, amazing actors within the rooms and even took us back through the rooms afterwards to show us how the puzzles all worked (and even reset the puzzle for my friend to do again so she could show me that she learned how to use a car jack). Overall really great rooms, challenging but fun puzzles. It was our first time doing objective based rather than escape based and it was just as fun and challenging, and you still get the moment of fanging it out of the room when you finish.
We did it as a work Christmas party and split into both rooms (team vs. partners) and they accommodated us amazingly from the first email to the photo before we left. Low success rate but that makes it all the more fun when you get out!
