The set up in LSPU Hall involved going from the dressing room leading up to the narrow back stage areas and finally to the theatre itself. The puzzles started from easy and gradually became more advanced and pain-stakingly complicated. Really need a full team to work out the options and combinations under time pressure to get the clues needed to escape successfully. Fully enjoyed the various levels of puzzle difficulties. Love the dim light sighting in the hallway and the main theatre, making the challenges more in line with a ghostly theme.

Two friends and I went to escape quest last night and had a really fun time! IT was a great way to spend 45 minutes and work together with my pals. We did the zombie room, which was a little spooky at first but we quickly got very into solving the puzzles and managed to escape. The staff were really friendly and helpful and you are allowed to ask for hints if you need them!

I love to explore cities, including their escape rooms. After hearing fantastic reviews on Escape Quest, we had to try it! Not only did we attempt one room, we did them all (in the course of a couple days). It was worth it, not only the experience, however the people, the location, and the puzzles themselves. GREAT! They also do larger scale games in the city, check out their website on this. We were even gifted shirts when beating the time for the impossible room (built for two people and no clues). Overall, loved it! Couldn't rave enough about how fun it was. Thanks again!

This was a great activity with friends/family. I'd done escape rooms before(including at escape quest) and this was a lot of fun- lots of great puzzles, and you needed you teammates to be able to do it properly. I'd highly recommend.

Been here twice with different people in different rooms. The staff are awesome - great at instructing, providing hints and get you excited for the challenge. The 2 rooms I've done were totally different and both really fun and challenging. Totally hooked on escape rooms for sure! Great date night, family fun or friend silliness. :)
