I played all of their games in Augsut, and all are so different from each other and has many fantastic and fun puzzles.
My favourites had to be Guardian of the gallery, an shimmy shimmy cocoa pop, but all games were very well thought out, with great theming and lots of awesome puzzles.
I would strongly recommend to anyone that hasn’t been yet to go play their games, you won’t be disappointed, each room has something everyone will love and all their games are fun to play through.
The team were extremely welcoming/friendly and easy to get on with/have a laugh with. :)

The escape room was really good however the staff member could have been more friendly and less abrupt.

Want to Escape was our final outing for a road trip I had with the company I work for. Rushden has some of the most hilarious games I've played

We first started with shimmy shimmy coco pop (If you've watched BIG you'll love this game). The setting was fantastic and the puzzles were amazing. We finished with a decent time but I wish I could've stayed in the game more.

Next we did conspiracist, which is now one of my favourite rooms. It's the most serious out of the 4 games at Rushden, but it's design is incredible. I've always been a fan of conspiracies, and James' (owner) love for them is clearly shown, with the conspiracies being built into the puzzles. I was so deep into the puzzles and I greatly enjoyed holding the "holy" item at the end :)

Next we did teachers revenge. This is a hilarious room, with the first puzzle having me laugh from beginning till end. It really feels as though you're in a primary school room and some of the puzzles really are just something you'd expect children to do in a normal classroom

Finally we did Guardian of the gallery (*no it is not marvel themed). The mechanics of this game is amazing. It'd be a shame to spoil but if you like games with different mechanics then this is definitely one of them. The puzzles were good and the GM system was hilarious whenever we made a mistake.

All in all James and this company are absolutely amazing, so polite and an amazing sense of humour, a *must* visit if you're in the area and thank you so much for hosting us!

This was our second escape room experience at "Want to Escape" and we really enjoyed ourselves.
The amount of thought in the Teacher's Revenge: School of Hard Locks was fantastic - without giving any of the puzzles away, we had to think about patterns, follow instructions and reorder information. We had to work together, although there were non-linear tasks to complete as well so we could be getting on with different tasks to progress our escape.
The room itself was spacious and visually engaging. Plenty to make you think and distract! you. We'll be returning to complete the other two rooms - that's certain.
