Eight people is a reasonable amount of players for escape rooms. Everyone will find something to do: strategizing, taking charge, searching for clues, solving puzzles, cheering the team on, counting down the minutes, wandering from room to room or chatting up the game master. Book one of the rooms in Birmingham and find out what will your contribution be!
My family and I have completed every game apart from one with Clue HQ (although we haven't got out every time!) We find it is a great experience gift for birthdays and Christmas instead of giving a physical present, and always have a fun time. This time we took on the Core with Sherlock Tomes - with her handy tips at just the right time we managed to escape. Special thanks for opening for our booking while the building was under refurb!Chloe
Had been gifted a 'family experience' (of our choosing) for a Christmas pressie, so opted to have a go at another (our second as a family) Escape Room - our first experience at Clue HQ...and great fun it was too :-)Stuart
As we were booking at relatively short notice, and with specific timings in mind, we were limited in choice but opted for the 'Core' room...and we were not disappointed.
A good mix of puzzles - some obvious, others not so, but always with the guidance of your 'room watcher'.
We did 'escape' with time to spare, but not after some significant head-scratching in places.
All in all a very enjoyable experience and one to be recommended - a very friendly and helpful staff team complete the experience.
Thanks to our lovely Sherlock for her time whilst we ran around frantically in Core B! Had a great time, puzzles were challenging, just what we wanted. Will definitely be coming back.Andy
