Fantastic new Zombie 🧟‍♀️ room. We escaped with 36sec to spare that’s 4/4 for us. The most difficult one yet but thoroughly enjoyable. If you haven’t been and you have teenage children I would highly recommend 👍

Loved the atmosphere in both rooms, great ambience. All the clues were exciting to figure out, not too hard or too easy. Definitely give those rooms a try! We will be back for more in the new year :)
