I’d say it is but not young children, it’s quite complex to understand the clues, there is no choice of game, others may have pirate ones and things more suited to kids ? but also it’s based in a pub/ cocktail bar with bouncers on the door so not sure, check the website

Hi! No, there are no actors in our escape room. However, it is atmospheric and may cause participants to 'jump' - as per our FAQs it is not recommended for people who are pregnant or have heart conditions.
