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.
Excellent fun. A lovely walk (hopefully didn't give too much away). The hints saved us once or twice.
I highly recommend this room! Staff are so friendly and nice. I have lots of experience about escape room but I had never gotten that many hints before then. Anyways it was hard but fun for me.
Clean and family friendly; but the spy heroes game itself was certainly not as immersive (or as fun prop-heavy) as other escape room games, so it dragged a little at times, even if we are not that experienced/great at such games. Use of walkie talkies to speak to game operators was clunky and not great, and the clues when needed were not as slick as other escape rooms, and the poor acoustics in the room did not help the overall experience; but would still visit again to try the other games at this venue, as it is a nice venue and just think the other games (by the sounds of it) would be better suited to our group. So thanks nonetheless AIM escape rooms.
You sold me a treasure hunt that does not exist currently! Please provide me with an immediate refund. Thank you
First the positive. We had a lovely hot day in Hyde Park. Ideal for this sort of thing. The clues are a good level for most ages. It's something a bit different to get the family outdoors. The negatives. I probably could have paid for the 2 person minimum and shared the phone. It's not cheap for something that has no overheads. There are similar things in London at a fraction of the price. We didn't finish but that wasn't down to the activity. It just got a bit much of a trek for the 72 year old in the group.
We played this as a group of 6 and it was great! The puzzles were just the right level of difficulty- teamwork was needed to solve most of them. You get round a fair bit of Hyde Park and in the sunny weather it was glorious. Really keen to do another of these now!
