We had a great time as a group of friends - just wish we'd had more time to solve all the clues/ puzzles.

Who knew being stuck in a room could be this muxh fun? Such a simple concept but brilliantly executed... working on puzzles is a great way to stretch your brain and see how others work through situations. Would highly recommend it, and do it again!

A thoroughly exciting hour (less than since we broke out) out of the room. Perfect for all ages - family, friends as well as a great team building event. Highly recommended worth the visit!

More people more fun. Recommendations are 3 people and 2 people would have to work pretty fast to crack the code as there are multiple tasks.
