WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT US

    What can I say, this was our second time trying a different challenge, Thom was a phenomenal guide! His banter, his support throughout and emotional goodbye made our night. We escaped with 4 minutes and 36 seconds to go ... don’t tell us ... we know... AMAZING!! Would highly recommend Never Give Up to anyone.

    We came to end our day in Newcastle celebrating our first wedding anniversary. Thom our host was brilliant from start to finish. We were so close to escaping King Tut’s tomb but just fell short - so annoying! But all part of the fun of escape rooms... Will be back to try the other room soon! Thanks again

    We had the best time in this place - loved immersing ourselves in the games, and really felt the tension of the time limits!

    Tom was an excellent, and despite all of the tech playing up on him (and a mispressed button), he guided us through effectively and enabled us to throw ourselves into it wholeheartedly.

    If you're in Newcastle and you get the chance, pay this place a visit - you'll love it!

    We went for our friend Jacks birthday and had a great time in the dungeon ! Our host Thom(aka Jim) was amazing and made sure we had a great time even though we sucked at the games. Somehow we managed to escape the dunegon with 2 minutes remaining. Would definitely recommend giving it a go if you aare in Newcastle.

    We completed the dungeon escape room which was absolutly fantastic, lots of challenges to suit our large group. We were a group of 8, and there was something for everyone to get involved in, so the whole team were able to participate. Our host Thom made it even better, he added so much to each challenge making us all laugh and really enjoy the experience. We will be back!

    Took our 13 year old son and 3 of his friends for his birthday. They did the King Tut escape with Hannah who was great, funny and looked after them really well and most importantly they all had a great time and can't wait to do it again.
    Thank you.
