    We highly recommend Exitus escape rooms. We had a fantastic time working out such cleverly constructed puzzles. The staff are lovely and a big thank you to our game master, Mandy, who was just awesome! We will be back!

    Fantastic
    This was our second trip to Exitus and we really enjoyed doing Choco Loco. What’s better than combining two of my favourite things: Chocolate and escape rooms! It was a really inventive room, not done one like this before. Beth was a great Games Master, very patient with my daughter and her friends who were celebrating her birthday. thank you. Would totally recommend
    Who doesn't love a bit of a chocolate?! We're so glad you enjoyed and thank you for your lovely review.

    One of our favourite escape rooms!
    Really enjoyable escape room! Lovely area to wait in beforehand with cocktails & drinks on offer. We have done lots of escape rooms but the Coco Loco was one of our favourites - lots of different puzzles and a nice surprise at the end! Nathaniel was a great host, really nice & engaging. Thanks a lot :)
    You were a great time! Thank you for the lovely review.

    Great place for friends to work together and have fun!!
    3 of us played on Saturday 2nd September, we played Coco Loco, and we throughly enjoyed in, completed in 51 mins, and even had a few beers whilst doing so. We were late as the sat nav took us on a wild goose chase! But they were absolutely brilliant and let us still do the 60 mins booked, really friendly family run business, lovely people, very welcoming. Thanks for a brilliant time. The Milford Muppets, just waiting on the picture that was taken at the end!
    You were an amazing team! If you still haven't received your photo, please drop us an email and we'll send it over to you.

    Did 3 Rooms (The Curse of Senutep, Coco Loco & Virus Tinkerers
    Did all of their escape rooms today (The Curse of Senuter, Coco Loco & Virus Tinkerers. A really warm welcome upon arrival by everyone and being really friendly. Really enjoyed all 3 rooms with how the themes were, flow of the games/puzzles and if you were stuck how quickly they would respond to help and guide you with their clues. Nathaniel & Ceri were both our games masters and were really friendly and helpful when we was stuck and needed help. Also a big shout out to the young woman who took our first photo who was also really friendly and welcoming.
    Thank you for your lovely review! You were a great team!! Keep an eye out on our socials for when the new room is opening.

    CocoLoco fun
    Fab experience in exitus escape room. Ceri and the crew were very welcoming and not forgetting Watson! Did cocoloco, what could be better than having to eat chocolates when escaping! Some good puzzles and was a change to the padlocks etc which you often see in escape rooms! The escape room wasn't too difficult, but enjoyed every second. Thank you Ceri x
    Thank you for your lovely review! Watson is definitely the highlight! We hope to see you again soon!

    Great experience
    Ceri and the team were awesome (including Watson - the spaniel who was so charming and sweet)! The room we booked was Egypt-themed and it was really well designed. Very immersive and clever. We all agreed to return and try more rooms - great experience!
    Thank you for your wonderful review! Watson was very pleased to hear you had a wonderful time. We look forward to seeing you again soon!

    The curse of Senutep
    Nathaniel was a great host as he took us through everything with such fun and enthusiasm! We totally enjoyed ourselves from the minute we started and all the way through the puzzle. We were challenged and kept united as a team! We highly recommend the exitus escape rooms as an awesome present for each other ! Thank you once more for creating such safe and fun games!
    Thank you so much for your lovely review! We'll pass this onto Nathaniel and we hope to see you again soon!

Not great. We did both rooms at this place.

Senutep first - ridiculously hot, almost unbearable. The host DID NOT tell us that a certain colour padlock were just for staff use so we spent absolutely ages wasting time on them. It was only at the end after we'd escaped the room that she mentioned it. Rookie mistake from her.

The laser for one puzzle would not line up and we were told over intercom to move on without doing a whole puzzle - not really acceptable when you pay for the whole room.

Another puzzle to lead you into the next room wouldn't line up despite the fact that we'd done it right and the host had to come into the room and jiggle it got 5 minutes to make it open. Total break of immersion and more time wasting.

Things fell off the wall when they shouldn't have, lights that were supposed to stay on when you complete a puzzle kept turning themselves off. Just really poor overall.

Despite this we decided to still give the Plague room a go as we'd already booked and paid. This room did seem to work better and we didn't have any issues until at the very last puzzle, where we literally needed 5 extra seconds to just place something inside something else, the host BURST in and shut us down because we'd run out of time. I absolutely understand there was a team waiting but I'm not exaggerating when I say we needed just a few seconds extra to complete the entire room. This seemed so unnecessary and spiteful. Failing to escape a room fair and square does not phase us but the fact that the host was so quick to rush in the very second our time ran out was just pretty mean.

Overall I wouldn't recommend these rooms until there's been major improvements.

Big thanks to Ellie for leaving us in the terrifying tombs of Senutep!

Excellent escape rooms as always. Very professional and friendly at the same time.

Despite all the pandemic issues, I have to praise Exitus on their Covid cleanliness and sanitisation processes.

Very thorough in the room briefings with nothing left out.

Oh and have to mention the well stocked bar, what more do you need on a good night out than a brain frying puzzle cooled off with a nice cold bottle of something.

Well done on the great work, keep it up and hope there's lots of success and things thrive for you once again after lockdown eases!

Will see you again for your new upcoming rooms soon....won't say too much other than that!!

Such a fun escape room! We've done a few across the UK and this was definitely up there with the best. There's a bar so you can take drinks into the room, a resident dog (very cute) and the staff are so lovely and attentive.

Very much recommend this for a fun hour in Cardiff, we will be coming back!

This was a well-designed room with a high-quality set, although it was a basic single room game. The puzzles themselves were unique and varied although not too challenging. Staff were friendly and added to the game experience, and their little dog was beautiful. Looking forward to going back and trying the other games.

Simply excellent customer service. Has a charming old fashioned tavern-like bar with a wide range of affordable drinks, had a mocha for the first time and it was delicious. Staff was very accommodating and lovely. Had a great time with my friends in the escape room, we did the virus related one and it was harder than I thought it would be. Also adorable dog is customer service manager.10/10 will pet the good boy again.

A group of us went and did the Cancer Research room 'Tenovus virus tinkers' and the Egyptian 'The curse of senutep'. We had an amazing time, challenging rooms and lovely fun staff. Including the public relations manager Watson the dog.
Great prices and would definitely come back again to do more of their rooms.

Thanks to Ceri and the team for another great visit - Introduced some friends to escape rooms and couldn’t have picked a better company than Exitus - There was a warm welcome and our friends were immediately put at ease and relaxed. We played Coco Loco, the new Chocolate themed room, which was good fun and even better because of the tasty treats included - Perfect theming and a lovely flow to the room with some clever puzzles.
Exitus never disappoints and go above and beyond to make the experience one to remember.

Don’t be put off by the underwhelming entrance from Queen Street; the staff were lovely, especially Nathan, and the Coco Loco room was loads of fun. Lots of active puzzles to solve with teamwork, which suited our group of four adults and two children (12 and 10). This one’s a fairly easy room but really interesting and with a very unusual puzzle in the mix - would love to try their others, too.
