A friend suggested we went to Escape Live and I was in a 'yes' mood, so we booked in for Dr Wilson's office. Ollie was a great host - somehow both dramatic and understated - and the room was really well designed. Apparently Dr Wilson's office is more of a classic escape room - clues and codes - all scattered around some delightful vintage paraphernalia. I can't really put my finger on why it was so enjoyable, but I will def go back again to try a different room!

Hi there!

Thank you for leaving your experience with us here at Escape Live!

We're so happy you enjoyed yourselves being your first escape room! We're so glad that you were immersed into the scenario of the rooms and we take great pride in our rooms!

If you'd like more modern, technical and more physical rooms, try the Lab or Time Machine next! More of a challenge but thoroughly enjoyable!

Thank you for your lovely words on your Games Master "Ollie", we'll be sure to pass this onto him!

Thank you, and we look forward to seeing you soon!

Over the Easter half term we were only able to get a booking for an early morning game.Escape Live staff had to face our lovely half awake,disfunctional family,but they were very enthusiastic and welcoming .Dr.Wilson's room was great fun,Mark our game master was very helpful also kept up the spirit.We did not escape on time,but my 10 year old enjoyed it a lot! We are planning to visit The Lab next.

Really enjoyed this - this is the third room we've done and we've enjoyed them all. Skai was our helper, and she was great.
Only one room left to do so they need to open another venue

Great time was had by all four of us. Rob was really helpful (if cryptic) and funny. Would recommend. Will return and take friends and relations who haven't yet experienced this fun event

We had a great time during our first ever escape room. Ellis was a great host, who helped us along the way and really appreciated our enthusiasm! Can’t believe we actually escaped! Great variety of tasks to complete and very exciting. We hope all future escape room visits are all as good as this one! Thanks guys.
