Got to be honest, was an escape room virgin but this was a fab experience. Our host Joanne (aka Scoobyclue) was a superb host and it was 49m and 10s well spent. We had Cell Block C. Fab game and we’ll be back!

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