Went with a group of 8 and we loved it so much. The whole experience was brilliantly thought out and from the second it started we felt totally immersed. Would absolutely do another room, sooner rather than later!

Played spacescape this morning. Had so much fun with this room. Really clever puzzles, well themed and really inventive challenges. Staff were great and really good fun. They gave clues at the right points and we had some really funny interactions with them. Would recommend.

My three friends and I had such a laugh in the Frankenscape escape room. It's really cleverly thought out and you certainly get to flex brain muscles that don't often get such a decent workout. We loved working together to escape the room and were...More
