Wasn't sure what to expect having never done one of these before but what a laugh! We all had a superb time. We were a group of six and opted for "Room 13". Our Gamemaster Fran turned out to be a life saver providing us with helpful clues along the way. Sadly we didn't escape in enough time, but now having done this experience we would feel much better equipped with trying another room. After the event we all agreed that maybe 4 people, given the size of the room and the noise we as a group were making was a bit distracting.Teamwork is key!!! Can't wait to come again .

Thank you for visiting us for your debut escape experience.

Teamwork is definitely key and you were very unfortunate not to make it out within the time limit. But it's still great to know that you enjoyed the challenge.

Thank you for taking the time to leave us such a great review. We look forward to locking you in again soon!

Great family fun. A brilliant event to do for team work and problem solving together without the bickering :) Fran, our host was excellent from beginning to end.. setting the scene, helpful cryptic clues through to congratulating us on successfully solving Dr. Watson's Office. Good use of atmospheric lighting, suspense and equipment/props to add to the drama and involvement. Will be back for another adventure in the future!

There was 5 of us, age range 14 to 45, girls and boys, we went into Room 13. The room is fantastic, great atmosphere and props, it's difficult enough to really get your adrenaline going, Lee was great on the walky talky and gave us criptic clues to help a little. The quickest and best hour of the day without doubt. Totally recommend this, we had the best time. Well done Lee and Escape Live, can't wait for you to get the next room ready

We entered Dr Wilson's office as a family of 4, as part of a birthday celebration. We all had so much fun, even my dad who was dubious beforehand. We escaped with 2.36 minutes spare! None of us had ever taken part in an escape room previously but we will definitely be looking at experiencing another. The whole experience was made fun by our Games-master Robbie!! Have recommended to family and friends!!
