Dark Side of the Room:

You're a roadie for a rock band in 1978, and you're helping them get ready for the final gig of the tour. But with 60 minutes till tonight's show, you realise that not only have you misplaced your VIP passes that give you entry into the venue, but the band has also gone AWOL! Time is ticking away, and the show is about to start!

Can you solve the mystery of the Dark Side of the Room escape room and give the fans what they came for? It's up to you to make sure the show goes on!

Udder Graziness:

Rain is on it’s way to the farm and oh no – you’ve overslept! Your boss is away for the morning and he expects a lot of jobs to be done around the farm while he’s gone, the clock is ticking!

Did he want you to do something about the hay perhaps? Did he mention some broken fences? It immediately comes to mind that the milking machines aren’t working! You’ll have to find another way to get the job done. Work together to solve the mystery of the Udder Graziness Escape Room before the time runs out! Better get a mooove on!

You won't be disappointed

What an awesome experience with the awesome team at escape rooms. We done the Rockstar room and we had such a great time. The ladie on during our times was a really awesome ladie who was good at the work she does. Would highly recommend đź‘Ś

Great to experience

We took our two tween granddaughters & it was a great experience! The staff were so welcoming & friendly, & very helpful! The game was challenging but fun, & the clues were given regularly so no one lost interest. Would happily recommend!

So welcoming, and a fun theme!

We attended an 830pm session, and thought the staff might be a bit over things by that time of night…but completely wrong! They were welcoming and enthusiastic! The room was a very cool theme, with a bunch of different puzzle styles to conquer. We are returning this week to make the most of their Valentines special… they regularly post deals and on their social media - so keep your eyes peeled
