Avoid this fraudulent seller - my family purchased 6 tickets to buy out an escape room experience for 4. When we turned up the doors were locked, nobody responded to the buzzer, nobody was answering the phone, the voicemail inbox was full, and there was...More

We have done these in many places around Europe and they vary greatly. This was not one of the best. Getting out of the cell was good fun and quite exciting but once out lots of the action was around one area so it makes...More

While we did not make it out in under an hour, we had so much fun in the Alice and Wonderland room. Do not be turned off by the fact that the website says children over 14. Arrangements can be made so that kids less...More

This was first time for all six of us. We would have done better with a little more instruction before entering regarding the interactive hint panel that was in the other cell. We had a great time. Staff was very nice.

We were in the Alice in Wonderland escape room with kids. The clues were fun and you had to think out of the box. The room needs updating, but was fun. Lots of thinking and puzzle making. If you have an hour to do something...More

We have done a lot of escape rooms and the Alice In Wonderland was definitely one of the best I have done! It was very unique and had lots of fun challenges. Didn't escape but still had a great time!

14 and older is recommended by the company. Because of the problem solving required, I would say no younger than 12.
