We did the prison break room and loved it. Janine was an excellent host, we had a great laugh with her about what she'd seen us trying to do and was extremely attentive and personable. Wishing them all the best with their relocation!

Had a brilliant time doing all of the rooms over a few months, with work, friends and partner. Each time the staff were lovely and inviting, completed the mad scientist today, Liam was great and am hoping they re-open soon. Well worth the visit!
