Definitely the worst escape room I've had the unfortunate displeasure of playing. The misadvertising pictures is crazy. It's basically a small barn covered in tarpaulin. You could see the outside through the gaps underneath. The host was the only partially redeeming factor and is the only reason this deserves one star, otherwise I'd rate it 0 stars if possible. Very clear this is a grab for money rather than passion to give customers a great experience. Please see below for a list of pros and cons.

Pros:

Cons:
- No correlation to the actual theme of the room, at no point did I feel like I was in a "Hostel" it felt like I was in a tin barn with tarpaulin draped down the sides with large rocks INSIDE the room to hold it down.. oh wait.
- The only SIX puzzles inside the rooms were so unthoughtful and I truly believe we could have escaped the room within 10 minutes, if we had not been too busy laughing the poor excuse of this room.
- At no point are you being supervised by camera or microphones so the hosts have NO idea what is happening in the room. You are given a radio (which doesn't work 90% of the time) which they will ask you which part your at. I'm not sure because it's a puzzle, and I'm not sure if it's the right part or if I'm heading down the wrong path.
- FREEZING due to basically playing outside.
- Handcuffed to a partner for almost the entirety of the game. Making it almost impossible to do anything. This is a concept used at the BEGINNING of a lot of rooms.
- Spending 15 minutes before the game just trying to "Check in" only for the tablet not to work and the host have no idea how to fix it.
- The only toilet on site being a portaloo, WITH NO RUNNING WATER.
- No flooring, it was literally a muddy, uneven trip hazards. Including cables literally lying across the floor inside the room.
- Nothing was renewed inside the room, the "puzzles" were worn and EXTREMELY dated.
- No passion for tidying, literally a bucket with what looked like 12 month old stagnant water inside it. All while dust was literally everywhere. Disgusting.
- By far the BIGGEST worry with this room is the health and safety fire exit. Bearing in mind, the staff are not watching your game, so should a fire breakout, you wouldn't be able to pass on the message, or be passed a message. And the fire exit is chained from the outside?????????

I got this through Groupon and I still feel overcharged. £25 per person? I would feel sick to pay £2.50 per group. Absolute rip off, this place should be closed. Or the owners need to get in the and put some actual passion into it.

standards are low, needs lighting on the sign on the main road as hard to spot when driving to find the place, also wouldn't hurt to put a light in the toilet as not easy to pee in the dark!

some of the challenges need to be renewed as its very faded, water damage on some of the clues so were unreadable
floor is very unlevel, if it rains you will need wellies, absolutely freezing too so need extra layers of clother at this time of year.

could do with having a few more features as it lack imagination.

staff were nice enough, just felt very run down in general.

overall not worth the money

Echoing other reviews here so I won't make this a long one but just wow. Bad wow.

The building is a big metal shipping container in the middle of a field in the middle of nowhere. There is no heating or water, the first thing you see on site is a festival toilet by the front door (which didn't lock when I tried to use it - decided to hold it in.)

The place is filthy, the seating is torn and falling apart the carpets are stained, and the games are cheaply made and damaged too. There's no proper clue system in place either.

This company clearly latched on to the escape room trend to try and make a quick buck but it's not worth the money. I urge anyone reading to take their business elsewhere.

Would give it zero stars if it wasn’t for the very friendly and helpful man who was giving us clues throughout the game.

We’re a group of friends who have done a fair few escape rooms over the past couple of years, and we all agreed that this was by far the worst we’ve done. We did the ‘Subject 11’ escape room:
- The room seemed unkempt and like it hadn’t been cleaned for some time.
- One of the locks wasn’t working properly which took a good 10 minutes out of the game figuring out how to work it, even though we had the correct combination.
- Even though we did need some clues, it didn’t seem to live up to the difficulty rating and wasn’t a very immersive experience. There was no music or sound effects which usually adds to the atmosphere.
- We had no walkie talkie for the first half of the game, so the (very helpful) man had to stand outside the door and give us clues.
- The clock was basically just a kitchen timer in the corner of the room.
- When we finished the room, again we spent a few minutes trying to figure out what was next because it was so unclear what we had to do.
- Obviously this couldn’t be helped, but the venue was basically a metal cabin - it was very cold the day we went so we were freezing cold the whole time. It was also extremely noisy which detracted from the experience.
- To put the icing on the cake, the only toilet there was was a PORTALOO outside the venue with no running water.

As a group of 4 we paid £100 for this, so £25 each. I’m sorry, but this wasn’t worth the money whatsoever, I wouldn’t have even spent £20 on this. Save your time on this place. I’m sure there’s plenty of other much better escape rooms in Bristol.

Did the Stranger Things room - was pretty spot on for immersion. Staff used walkie-talkies to communicate with us, so could get a few hints to keep us making progress. Managed to get out in time, nice way to spend an hour with friends.
Parking was fine, toilet is a portaloo, which may bother some, but we were fine.
Take advantage of the Groupon offer for extra savings.

Rude and condescending staff and, without a doubt, the worst "escape room" I've ever visited.
Legendary among our circles for its laughable presentation; a 'WW2' room comprised a filthy tent decorated with four shoe brushes. Every puzzle was faulty in one way or another and could not be solved, requiring unsympathetic staff intervention each time.
Left feeling like I'd been mugged £200. Avoid at all costs.

Filthy and dangerous- sustained serious injury.. Unprofessional management, who can't even be bothered to send a refund. Avoid at all costs.

I bought tickets for this Escape room in October last year for a friends 30th. The event involved being in the dark, hand-cuffed to one another with only a few handheld torches to search for clues. As part of our search, my friend picked up a large broken glass cider bottle that had been left out in the room (in the dark!).
The glass bottle had been smashed earlier that day (we subsequently found out)-there were multiple large glass fragments and my friend sustained a large cut to her hand. This caused her to bleed significantly and felt dizzy from the sight of blood and the pain. We left the escape room where we were informed there was no running water onsite for her to clean her hand.
We were then told by an employer that the managers HAD BEEN AWARE of this large broken glass bottle in their escape room but had said 'they couldn't afford to replace it' earlier that day. If my friend had fallen onto this glass fragment, I dread to think what could have happened.
I emailed to formally complain and was informed that we could receive a full refund. It is now 8 months later and I still haven't been refunded a penny of the £134.81 that I am owed. I have emailed multiple times since but not yet received the refund.
This place is filthy and dangerous and should be shut down. Avoid at all costs.

I've played over a dozen escape games over the years and this one is by far the worst of all. The "room" is a shed that's divided with plastic sheets and construction board, minimal furniture that's obviously recovered from a skip, and no decoration at all. It's just a dirt floor which makes everything dusty and covered in sand. This was set up with a minimum effort, and very disappointing. There were very few puzzles, all fairly simple even though it was supposedly the "hardest" room, and at least 2 of them were broken. This was then "fixed" by skipping them, opening one lock directly revealing a 4 digit code for the next lock and so on. Whatever little immersion there might have been is definitely absent now. Staff if definitely not following the game, and didn't bother explaining the puzzles at the end of the game either.
Perhaps the most repulsive of all is that despite this "escape game" being a failure in every conceivable way, they still dared to charge a full £100 for an hour. Stay away as far as possible from these scammers!

Very helpful and accommodating staff. Not the easiest place to find, and we were about 30-45 late. But no fuss from staff who were very accommodating. Had an issue with the torch in the room, but quickly rectified
Would come again

Alex was really friendly and welcoming, and got us settled straight our escape room experience! The older rooms have an abandoned warehouse feel, the newer rooms are more modern! (The runner, subject 11) Have now completed all the rooms there, and can't say we've had a bad experience!
