Having racked up over 50 rooms worldwide between us, it's great that a number are now open in our area. I review on story, set, customer service, and puzzles. We played the 'Medic' room as a pair. First of all there's no story - it's...More

I'd never been here before but arranged to meet as a family for two of the children's birthdays. I booked online for 9 and the process was a bit tricky but I resolved it quickly. Arriving outside it looks a little unloved and location is...More

If you were looking for somewhere to waste a few hours away with your friends or family then try here. Bowling is fun, drinks expensive,service isn't brilliant, men's toilets aren't the best. As long as you don't expect much then you won't be too disappointed.

If you want to do something different and better than staying in, the place is worth a try. Not the best but fun for kids.

I was there for a birthday party and the staff were so nice, they kept asking if everything was ok, if I needed a drink and overall created a great atmosphere.
