New but well organised. Easy to book. Very acommodating. Had never done an escape room experience before so when we got really stuck our guide kindly gave us a wee pointer. Thankyou or we may well still be there! Good fun.

It was great fun for small groups to work together to escape from the chosen task. Would certainly recommend to others and would go again.
