It was good, how the room planned out for the mission. The mood and atmosphere in 80’s room was fantastic. We had thoroughly enjoyed the mission.

Great fun and got us working well as a team with our different abilities. We struggled in the time to resolve issues but had a few prompts which ultimately allowed us to resolve all the tasks.

Hi alexx. If someone really needs to go they can leave the room, though we do make sure everyone has a chance to use the facilities before :-)

Yes that is not a problem, under 14s are welcome to come but must be supervised by an adult. It can also be quite helpful to have at least two adults as younger children may find some of our puzzles challenging :)
