We have been twice and enjoyed two different rooms. We had an excellent time both times! Highly recommend to anyone as we took our 9 and 5 year old son who loved helping out and opening the boxes etc.

This was our first escape room and can say we weren't disappointed. There were lots of puzzles to solve and lots of team work involved. The pirate theme is excellent with the story behind the room you are going into. The staff were friendly and...More

I personally don't think the place is suitable for a pram, you have to go up about 15 stairs just to get up in the reception, and you cant take a pram into the small escape rooms, there is not enough room.
