Tackled with a team of 3; great, inventive puzzles requiring different skills including real science! Good natured host, never felt rushed and gave minimal clues as most things were straightforward enough! Would def go again when a new room opens! :)

It was my first time doing an escape room of any type. The whole thing was challenging and engaging, with real life science experiments mixed with other challenges. The theme was really strong and we (thankfully!) made it out in time - but only just!...More
