Visited Escape rooms in Shirley Southampton today and received a warm welcome on arrival and played the spies in space room, although we failed, we had great fun trying and would love to try our luck again on another room. It really made the family think and pull together and thank you to our Game Master Ellie who never gave up on us.

Had a great time here with a family group of five. Two of the party had done rooms before, which was a great help in just getting us started, but then we were all able to quickly join in and participate. The room was fiendishly tricky but do-able and we all had great fun working out the clues. Spent a good part of the rest of the evening chatting about it and coming up with themed ideas! Will definately come again.

It was our first time doing an escape room and we didn’t really know what to expect. Booked the ‘spies in space’ room on a whim and despite not finishing in the hour we all had a lot of fun and really enjoyed ourselves! It was hard but not impossible and we were very grateful for the hints from Jess who was a great guide and kept the momentum going for us when we got a bit lost. I would definitely recommend this to anyone!

Space, the final frontier. This is the (60 minute long) voyage of the HMS Shirley.
The best escape room we've done so far! If you love sci-fi and want a taste of the future zone from the crystal maze, compete with witty tour guide, then this is the escape room you've dreamt of. If however you're not a fan of sci-fi but want to do an escape room, book this anyway, it really is an amazing experience for all ages and abilities!

Nothing could possibly go wrong in a british spaceship right? Really enjoyed the 2050 room, challenging puzzles and a lot of fun.
