Good times! On vacation from Canada so I did my research from home before we left. It was a very intense escape room!
A really poor experience. We were told of several issues on arrival with the room, a padlock that wouldn’t open, a broken up torch etc. if things are broken or don’t work - fix them ! The lighting was so poor we had to use phone torches to make out anything. Almost every single puzzle ended in a padlock with very little ingenuity of thought. There was absolutely no narrative and seemingly no thought to make any atmosphere - there was no soundtrack ( how hard is it to even just play a few carnival/fairground style tracks ?Tthere was an air freshener and dehumidifier in the room presumably to over ride the damp. Honestly the worst escape room I’ve ever done, they should be embarrassed to be taking money for it.
Very cleverly thought out. You certainly get immersed in working out the next clue. We all thoroughly enjoyed the experience and were well impressed. The staff were very helpful.
Was not very fun, i feel some clues were so hard to complete( like calculating with the old machine) also some items we didn,t understand for what to use it( a plastic frame) .
Never got to do this because of covid, and despite my wife sending numerous emails and being directed to an answering machine when phoning, we haven’t been able to gain either a rebooking or a refund. Absolutely shocking customer service!
Good fun and nice that it is outdoors. Challenges were moderately difficult and having to explore the game zone thoroughly added just the right amount of novelty.
**DO NOT BOOK!** I was the owner of this experience which is *NOW CLOSED* - We have never given 'Now Escape' permission to take bookings on our behalf and no response yet from them to remove this listing.
Booked to go to Shipley but it’s not there. Tried to call the Nowescape office no answer emailed no reply. Shocking that they take your money and the event is not even there!!! ????
FANTASTIC! WE WERE A FAMILY GROUP OF SIX RANGING FROM 10YRS TO OVER 60. THERE WAS A NEED FOR US ALL TO WORK TOGETHER AND YET NO-ONE WAS LEFT OUT. WE ALL HAD TO THINK 'OUTSIDE OF THE BOX' AND MANAGED TO GET OUT WITH 4:33MINS TO SPARE. sPECIAL THANKS TO EVA AS OUR HOST - GREAT JOB!
Pay close attention. Look all around the room properly too. Touch objects carefully as well. Make notes. Do not waste time however. Ask for help if needed. Study everything in case.
Unfriendly staff and equipment barely worked. Please replace the chalkboard. Contains buzz wire so do not recommend for those with shaky hands as it could take up a lot of your time.
Okay, science is not my strong point and of course my youngest daughter wanted a challenge. What she wants she usually gets.
Escape Stockport is one of those places that is a hidden gem. The host was very enthusiastic and seemed to know the story off by heart. As it was a birthday he gave us an extra clue and we had chance to get a bonus for extra time or a clue.
The room was hard at first. The puzzles are just about right for the room.
We escaped and we enjoyed it.
Will definitely be going back again
Fancy disarming a bomb, then this is for you. Escape Stockport has three rooms amongst it's 5 rooms that has an interconnected story about Victor Chan.
This is the first room of the story. Right from the go the room is hard. There is no 1 place to start, or so it seemed (let's just say we kicked ourselves afterwards when it was pointed out lol). The puzzles are about right for the level of room and you get a chance to find a bonus that can be used for multiple things.
Needless to say we got out with 3 mins to spare. The pressure comes at the end when you have to disarm the bomb. Good fun for the family.
This was a room that is aimed at kids mainly, some of the clues stumped me and my wife, but the kids got them. The clues/ puzzles are all pirate/nautical themed.
The room was value for money.
