    Great experience
    The room we played was the jumanji themed room. It was reasonably challenging within the time frame. Although we got close to finishing we were defeated and run out of time. The staff were amazing throughout the experience and was very friendly. Charlie gave us a detailed but quick briefing and was always on hand for any help. Also thanks to Chris, ria and tyrion for being very friendly and professional.

    Best date ever!!
    I haven’t been to an escape room before so I didn’t really know what to expect however, Charlie gave us a thorough and quick briefing and assisted us when needed. She really did ensure that the experience was a good one by being friendly and professional throughout. We did the jumanji themed room which was actually quite challenging although we were so close to completing the room we ended up being defeated by the challenge! The rest of the staff Chris, ria & Tyrion was very friendly and professional. Honest such a great experience would recommend it to anyone!!

    A fabulously fun time
    We had a wonderful time and were quite shocked to have actually escaped. Our game master was Jordan who explained everything thoroughly to us ahead of locking us in and even checked in on us a few times which we was something we’d never experienced at an escape room before. We’ll definitely be back to try another room.

    Really enjoyable escape room.
    Had a great experience in the ‘Misery’ room. There was plenty to work out and challenges to explore. It was a bit creepy which really added to the atmosphere. Holly, our team guide, really set the scene before we entered and her intro was thorough and gave us enough advice not to have any disasters, but didn’t give any hints (until we really needed one half an hour in). A really enjoyable hour- one of the better escape rooms we have done.

    Alcatraz
    Anyone wanting to do an escape room should definitely try Alcatraz at Escape Reality! It was so much fun and we had such a laugh trying to solve the clues. We enjoyed so much that we’ve booked to do another one in a couple of months.

    Absolutely amazing, 10/10 would absolutely recommend.
    My parents and I visited recently and had an amazing time! It is so much fun and we really enjoyed working together to beat the rooms so much that we went back for a round two. We completed The Heist and then decided we were confident enough to come back and do Jungala. Our games master, Holly, was incredible both times round even in the (surprising) UK summer heat! She was so lovely and made us feel so welcome and excited for our experience, even though we were quite nervous we wouldn’t escape beforehand! She filled us with confidence and gave us a nudge in the right direction whenever we felt stumped. I couldn’t recommend this more :)

    Really enjoyed the escape room. We did the heist which was really enjoyable and would definitely reccomend. Chris who was our host was friendly and helpful, especially as it was my first time there. Thank you Chris, I will definitely be returning.

    A fun experience, fab staff team
    Had a great time. We tried Alcatraz and found it challenging but great fun. Charlie met us in reception and gave us an energetic and funny introduction to the room and ran us through the safety aspects. The staff were friendly and helpful and made the experience very enjoyable. Thanks, we will return to try another game.

    Escape from Alcatraz
    Our second visit here. Amazing experience again. Hosted by Jordan, who was excellent. The room we did was Alcatraz, which was great fun. We even managed to escape! Definitely recommend an escape room here. Fun for friends and family

Fantastic experience! Played the Enigmista room with 2 13-year-olds - they were a lot braver than us! Our game leader Chris was super helpful, helping us out when he saw we were stuck and setting up the atmosphere really well. We unfortunately didn’t escape, but I’m sure we’ll be back to try another room soon :)

Had an amazing experience here! Staff were very friendly and welcoming and we were well looked after by the lady who ran the room for us. She was funny and down to earth and really elevated our experience. There was a slight issue with the game we originally wanted to do, but this was quickly taken care of and we were offered a new room for a similar time slot and a free game for the inconvenience. Overall a 10/10 experience would definitely recommend! Even picked up a new friend on the way! 😂

This was my second time back , this time we did the room Misery and it was great fun, the right amount of spooky.

The team was friendly and helpful. We had Ria brief us and help us when we got stuck. She was great. The photos at the end were a nice touch. Cant wait to try other rooms

My partner, myself and our friends had an amazing time at escape reality with our host Chris. We did the room 'Misery' and enjoyed it so much we came back two days later to try 'Alcatraz'. All puzzles are well thought out- challenging but not impossible. It was my partners first escape room experience and he is already addicted and looking for more!

Absolutely fantastic escape game. Chris was a wonderful host who built the tension. The Misery room was well thought out and challenging enough for most people. Really enjoyed

After completing all the rooms I can honestly say there’s not a bad one there. Having done escape rooms by a variety of companies this one is a definite must. Chris looked after us for each visit - we loved chatting to him about all things ‘escape room’ and appreciated his guidance throughout. Thanks Chris. Can’t wait to come back when there’s some new rooms to attempt. 😊

My wife and I (also joined by our kids for a couple of rooms) recently completed all of the rooms at Escape Reality Cardiff and enjoyed every second! The rooms are a great balance of challenging yet fun and are supported by the wonderful Cardiff staff. We especially loved our host Chris who made us feel welcome every time we visited and remembered us every time we did! Thanks Chris! :-)

We had a great time doing the Enigmista room. Qe we’re both pretty new to escape rooms but it was good fun & a good challenge. Would recommend! We liked it so much we booked a 2nd room for the 2nd night of our weekend stay in Cardiff. Chris was a great host!
