Me and three friends have now been 3 times, done the Homicide, Run! and Devils Playground rooms. They are all so well thought out, the actual rooms (especially at the 2nd gen site) are so immersive and the right balance of scary! The staff are always so helpful and friendly - special thanks to Ellis

We had an amazing time at the escape room! As a group of 6 we chose to do the devils playground, prior to the room the hosts made us feel nervous (in a good way) and excited. The first 10 minutes was pretty spooky but then our nerves calmed down, we managed to escape with a few minutes to spare and

Four of us did our first escape room together and it was great! The right mix of scary and clever. We managed to escape with a couple of minutes to spare. The bar area and games for before and after are also good. Would definitely go back to try one of the other rooms.

We played Devils playground and expected it to be scary with the build up/hype but, without spoiling it, the start is amazing and gets you immersed into the room but after thst its not too scary and with there only really being like 7/8 things to open its quite straightforward.

We came as a family, enjoyed the entire experience. As the clock ticks down & you’re still searching for the final clue(s - in our case!) it was nail biting. Better than sitting at a computer screen or slumped in front of the TV!

We went this Saturday for abducted, I had put additional notes for the birthday person which was totally ignored, i even told them since we are traveling from London I really wanted the experience to be really good and unique but it turned out to be slightly disappointing. It was ok fear factor wise

Visited here today, the building needs a touch of TLC and was a bit grotty inside and cold. Also noticed when signing in on the tablets as I put my first letter for the email address.... Lots of other email addresses popped up (maybe needs sorting for Data Protection). Enthusiastic staff... Ish.

I came to The Great Escape with an open mind as I've been told previously it's the best in Sheffield. I booked the game "Homicide" with 3 other friends, it was very creative and exciting. The host Shelly kept us thinking and helped us whenever needed, she was lovely. The game was very cleaver and w

I played this room yesterday with my two friends. The decor in the room is great and makes it seem very realistic. We were each put in separate rooms with windows between them. We were each assigned different roles which gave us some independence whilst still working in a team. The room includes rea

My first escape room and it certainly won’t be my last! The RUN room really makes you think and is engaging with fab sound/lighting effects. Perfect for groups or couples alike. The bar at the venue is reasonably priced and has a good range of soft and alcoholic drinks, as well as food on offer to

Never having been to an escape room before, we went with a family group of 5. Me and my husband as the two oldies, and our two sons and partner as the young ones.

I can thoroughly recommend the escape rooms here. I've done both versions of Alcatraz and Homicide rooms, and the Mad Scientist at the original site, and Submerged at the second site.

Have been to Gen2 twice now, and both times they were running around 40 minutes late. It seems they don't allow enough time for each team to escape and the resetting of the rooms.
