I took a crowd of teenagers here for a birthday treat. The staff were brilliant, friendly, warm and engaging. Ali (our champ for the day) clearly loves his job and made the break out expereince personal and the room pealed with laughter and screams of excitment as we found clues and worked them out. Would totally recommend. Oh and we broke out!

Had a really good time. Lots of head scratching and giggles. Didn’t Breakout but had such a laugh with our boys. Fantastic for families.

Brilliant venue, easy to get to, very happy, enthusiastic but nicely relaxed staff make the welcome warm and friendly - Jess M was our guide and she was fabulous. You quickly find out what you need to know in a de-brief then it's off to your room. If you're a beginner then pay attention to the difficulty of the room you select and book before hand... 5 star difficulty means very taxing clues, I'd pick a 2-3 star one next time to make me feel clever at the end.

The rooms are compact and themed so it's intriguing but doesn't put too much of a strain on physically. Casual footwear and clothing are recommended, some bending down and much scratching of heads required.

Overall a great experience, we did it with 2, but you could have had 4 people in there which thinking about it, might of helped, we nearly, but didn't make it, but had good fun trying. Would highly recommend and the staff help to make the day too. Free photo (own camera with a made sign) on exit. Really good value for the money - thanks for all your help too Jess...

Me and my boyfriend were a bit cocky and attempted Virus, a 4 star room. We didn't break out, but it was very close! The spectator staff watching over us gave us subtle hints to keep us going in the right direction without overbearing us with clues. After we ran out of time, the spectator staff showed us the remaining steps we needed to take to break out.
It's super fun whether you're with one person or a bigger group. I'd recommend 1-3 star rooms if you're going as a duo, it's much more difficult with only 2 sets of eyes as opposed to a bigger group.
The puzzles themselves were well made! Some were easier than others, some had us going insane for 15 minutes. But overall it was a fun challenge, would highly recommend!

Hi Victoria,

Well done for almost escaping from Virus! It's a difficult room so you did well for a first time team of two.
We're glad you liked the puzzles and our game running skills, we pride both of those things as some of our best traits!

Next time give Facility X a try, it's a 3-star room that will have you wracking your brain from the second you step in there (no spoilers).

We really hope to see you again soon for your next challenge!

Thanks,
Breakout Team

Had a great time doing the detective office game as a treat for my dads birthday yesterday. Adil was great fun, walking my parents (first time escapees) on what to expect and how the game works, and having a laugh with us after we managed to break out. Would definitely recommend!
