Me and my colleagues did an escape room together and absolutely loved it ! It is amazing way for a team building by solving clues and puzzles. The layout of the game is very well designed and it makes a very realistic atmosphere ! This was defenitely the best escape room we've ever done. Staff was very friendly and super optimistic and that makes everything just perfect ! We're already looking forward to do the 'CONVICTS' game. Thank you so much for making our evening successful !

I don't know how come there are lots of 5 star reviews to this game. It wasn't properly organised both the times we went here. The first game 'Convicts' we did have a problem with camera and one of our teams wasn't able to finish the game. Also the clues from one game are audible to the other room. We weren't sure to which team they are giving the clues. Then we were offered a free game 'SOS'. The guy who was organizing the second game SOS, couldn't care less. A door in the escape room was not supposed to be opened but was left open and created lots of confusion.(lots more than 15 minutes here) Then when we rang him for a clue he wasn't answering our calls and he was telling that people don't ask for clues usually and that is the reason he didn't answer. (We lost almost 15 minutes there). And then one of the clues were missing in the locker, the guy had to open the escape room, search the clues from a separate drawer and give it to us.(This took around 5-10 minutes of our time). We have done better escape rooms in the past in dublin and they are lots of fun. I wouldn't recommend this escape room.

For the benefit of future players of our game we wanted to post a response to your review. We have sent several emails to you regarding the incident and wanted to clarify that the other 2 star review from Dan just after this review is from the same game. Your team suffered one technical hitch in your first game of Convicts which both you and Dan acknowledged in emails was a great game and that aside from that you had a very enjoyable time and rated the game highly (as well as being able to complete the game). You also complimented how well our staff dealt with this and offered you a completely free game of our other game SOS by way of apology for the glitch which you took advantage of.

We apologised profusely for the problems in your SOS game which were highly unfortunate and have never happened to any team before to such an extent. To clarify the problems in this game to other readers, one sheet of paper was missing from one of the rooms and unfortunately an electrical surge caused a door between compartments to open during the game. In an unfortunate series of events, our Games Master had to step out for 15 minutes for an urgent call just after the game had started and attended to the group immediately upon his return and was extremely apologetic. The group was not able to complete the game as even though they had been delayed slightly by the game errors, they were unfortunately nowhere near finishing. As another group was booked in after them, it was impossible to allow them to finish as this may have taken another 30-40 minutes. Our staff took time to show the group through the rest of the game and explained the game. We normally allow teams who are nearly finished the game extra time to complete, as long as it is possible and no one is waiting for another game, which unfortunately for this group, they were.

We offered a full refund to this group immediately (for their previous Convicts game as we could not refund a free game) but they did not want to accept this as they had enjoyed that game. We have offered unreserved apologies for the problems in the game and explained everything to the group.

It is unfortunate that so many elements went wrong with this particular game but we just wanted to post this to let players know that this is not a normal occurrence in our games and that if it does happen we will do our utmost to sort things out for our players. We care about our game and our players and we would like to make sure you know that.

We had the BEST time today on the escape boat!! We did the SOS game and were so impressed with how well done out & authentic it was, how clever it was & how well it all worked.. some great surprises we did not expect! A fun, exciting, brain teaser that definitely got our hearts racing at times.. We haven’t stopped talking about it all afternoon will definitely be recommending to everyone and are already getting our team together to come back to play convicts soon! Thanks so much we can’t wait to return!

This was my second time partaking in Escape Boats and I loved it as much as the first! We did the 'convicts' experience today, where we were split into 2 competing teams both fighting to finish first. The competition added another dimension to an already great experience and I'd highly recommend it for a larger group. Not recommended if you're claustrophobic, afraid of the dark or uncomf with tight squeezes!
