It was great fun! Booked as a surprise for one of our teammembers. I wanted one to give that great immersive feeling straight away. The place was very big, lots to find and do.

Elements of the game relied on team communication, but what's funnier than screaming at one another in a locked room?

As an escape room game master, it was interesting to see how other places work too, I really liked the various types of puzzles here ranging from physical to mental, something for everyone!

Our team of 4 had a great time! :) thank you!
