Each room has a story that you play a part in, and each presents its own unique challenges for a truly entertaining experience. Will you accept the challenge?

I bought this experience as part of my friends 60th birthday treat along with my husbands birthday treat. My friend had never heard of escape rooms and was kept guessing even as we climbed the stairs to the second floor! Apparently we worked quite well as a team and managed to crack the final clue with 21 seconds left on the clock. It was truly nail biting stuff! We all had a thoroughly wonderful time and couldn’t believe how quickly the hour passed by. Some excellent ideas, just enough hints when we needed them and very friendly staff. A great way to celebrate a birthday on a wet afternoon. Thanks

Absolute top stuff! Great staff, great atmosphere. six in our group. My sister and I, late 40's , my two kids , teens and my niece and her partner 20's so a good mix. our first time and played a great game but didn't quite get last clue in time! The rooms set in the 50's were great. None of us wanted it to end and we'll definitely be going back to do more, everyone loved it! it's something everyone should try without a doubt.
