I Took my 14yr old daughter and friends here for a birthday party. They had a fantastic time; the games are imaginative and thought provoking and the ‘sets’ are just great. On this occasion they did ‘Jungala’ which was the right level for their age...More

My boyfriend and I attempted the Misery room, narrowly missing out on completing it! It was an interesting and immersive experience that kept us on edge the whole time. Very much worth the money and looking into coming again to try another room.

Loved this room. The game was very well organised with a range of puzzles and it worked well to be in a group of five! Good value for money, will definitely be returning!

This is the 4th out of 6 rooms we have done. Each room is different and stimulates our brain cells. Our host, Simon was very helpful and gave us an injection of enthusiasm. It is a great escape from reality. Room designs are so clever!
