Me and my family played the "hellevator" on Saturday and even though we didn't get out our games host Ananya was really helpful and she even convinced us to book another game there and then! Hopefully we'll get out next time.

Hello, All our hosts are trained on all games so there is no guarantee which host you will get at the time of booking.

Yes but not in the same room. The Maximum amount of players per game/Room is 6. You’d need to do what I did and book two rooms
