    Fantastic experience, thanks Molly!!
    One of the best escape rooms I have ever done - a brilliant concept and fantastically executed. The room is built to a really high quality and the game is engaging with just the right level of challenge. Molly did a brilliant job at hosting and getting everybody excited - I couldn't recommend this place enough its more than worth a visit!

    A fabulous immersive experience
    A really well thought out and well run room! We've done a few before and this has to rank as one of the best. The set design is really immersive, and the personalisation was a nice touch. Highly recommend

    Amazing Escape Room Experience
    Puzzled was the first escape room we had done and although we didn't escape it was great fun. Molly was friendly and could see when we were struggling and gave us tips to help us. There were a lot of different types of puzzles to solve and I could see how it had taken 6 months to build with a lot of though and effort gone into it. Looking forward to coming back again to try another one when it's ready.

    The experience was amazing. Booked for tj, my son's 13th birthday, from the moment he found out he had bad anxiety about the unknown of it, he has autism and adhd, he struggles so much with new experiences also new places and was saying he didn't want to go but I knew he'd love it. I emailed the morning before and got a call straight away by the owner Kevin, he was soo kind and said he will help as much as possible and offered for us to visit that afternoon. We went and Kevin had shown us around, answered questions, introduced us to molly who would be there the next day with us and even said if we still didn't feel sure he'd move the date. Honestly, they handled everything so perfectly on the day and the day before that not only did tj go but he loved it. They even printed out a news paper article with his name and wrote a happy birthday message on the board.

    Absolutely fabulous
    What a great escape room. Dad, mum and both 20+ daughters. Really liked the focus on technology based puzzles rather than lots and lots of locks. Great variety of challenges, great special effects and lateral thinking required. Thoroughly recommended!

    New indie escape room with great tech and puzzles.
    A great little indie room with good use of tech. We completed it with a group who were fairly experienced with escape rooms and really enjoying the personal touches, variety of puzzles and little jokes. Would recommend!

    Abandon Ship scores high!
    Our team visited the Puzzled Escape Room for a team building treat after a busy summer. It was absolutely excellent! We loved the theme and managed to solve it with three seconds to go. The puzzles were huge fun but also hard to crack. It was one of the best escape rooms I have ever done. Definitely worth the trip out of town and would be a great outing with a group of friends.

    A hidden gem and a must play
    We played 'Abandon Ship' - a wonderful room with clever puzzles and made with tons of love. We had a blast playing this one. There was some really cool surprises as we transitioned between rooms, and the storyline was compelling too. Abandon ship also had tons of atmosphere to immerse the players - it's a superb room that anyone in South Wales should make a beeline for.

    Nautical fun escape room
    Really good escape room and a unique puzzle at one point - had a great time. Puzzles were fair and the room was flawless. Fun nautical theming and a good variety of puzzles to keep you going!

My family and I love an escape room. We’ve tackled most of the ones hosted in Cardiff, and some further afield, so were intrigued to hear that new company had opened its doors.

At the time of attending, Puzzled offered just the one room, but it provided quality over quantity. It easily slotted in as one of the best offerings available in and around Cardiff.

The puzzle structure was strong; only one step broke the logic established by the impressive set design. It contained moments of genuine ingenuity, and was clearly crafted by some talented people keen to leverage their skills to craft a unique experience. The one room available when I visited was engineered with impressive production value, and visible ambition.

Excited for Puzzled to release more rooms!

Amazing time for our first family escape room experience! Only 5 mins from the M4, on-site free parking, friendly staff with a very warm welcome. Fantastic escape room with a nautical theme and lots of tech and a few surprises! Challenged us all, but we could all contribute to solving the various puzzles, with a few hints from the hosts! Even our 9 year old found elements she could engage with. We made it out with 23 seconds to go 😊 would highly recommend.

I can completely understand why Puzzled Escape Rooms has five star reviews from all reviewers. We went as a staff group from GTFM, the local radio station, and it was one of the most exciting, fun filled hours I've had in many a year. From start to finish it was superb. An hour of mind-blowing challenges that set you on course to find out why a ship was abandoned at sea, and then bring it back safely to shore. Virtually everything in the room had a part to play - apart from a few red herrings along the way. Brilliant, superb, fantastic are words that spring to mind. Can't wait for a second challenge, a Welsh space craft, to open there later in the year. If you get a chance to go - please do so!

I am a relatively experienced escapist (well into double figures) who played Abandon Ship with a relative newbie (one game).

We chose puzzled for it's out of town location. I enjoy the rooms in Cardiff, but it's nice to be out of the city.

We were very impressed. Kevin and Molly have just one room active (with more planned) but they have clearly put a lot of thought and love into it. I would say it was a relatively challenging room in my experience and we did finish just overtime (1h5:30) and Kevin was generous enough to allow us to finish.

The decor was sublime. Very immersive with excellent use of lighting and sound and space.

What made this room standout was the tech. I knew this was Kevin's USP and I was a bit worried about just spending time on a computer. No fear! Although the programming was advanced, it was well integrated into a series of physical puzzles well tied into an excellent evolving story.

I understand his next room will be cyberpunk themed and I can't wait to come back to see how Kevin's programming skills and Molly's design skills make for a really unique experience

Honestly, one of the best escape rooms I’ve done. The work that’s gone into this is exceptional. Kevin and Matt are fantastic at what they do.

I went with my work colleagues and as another escape room employee I am genuinely impressed with this one.

I cannot wait for the next one to open!

First time at an escape room.
Scenario was really good, staff were brilliant explaining procedures clearly and precisely. They were also very attentive during the game making sure we got the most out of our experience.
Will definitely visit again when the new scenario is completed.

We had a fantastic experience here last night. We are a family of 4 (including 17yo and a 12yo) and we have done many escape rooms together. This was the most immersive, and most fun we've had with one.

The host has clearly poured their heart and soul into creating this room; as well as a lot of skill and tech savvy. There were so many fun puzzles which were peppered with humour too. We had a blast!

Highly recommend

Wow what an experience. From the moment we entered, Kevin was extremely welcoming and helpful and really helped the story come alive. The room itself was incredible and the set up was perfect. My friends and I had SO much fun and we cannot wait to return! Perfect if you’re looking for a lot of fun for an hour!

Birthday surprise from my family, 6 adults took part, thoroughly enjoyed, had a great time, only issue was only 2-3 people could get around the computer screen to read things, look forward to enough room opening. The person who showed us the ropes was great. Will come again ☺️

6 of us went 3 adults and 3 children for my sons 12th birthday. We all had a fab time and managed to ecape with 6 minutes left. It was my first time at an escape room we had warm welcome, very friendly and such a laugh. Highly recommended will be booking again when the new room opens
