WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY
It was a fabulous experience and immense fun! Highly recommendable!!
Engaging, witty and draws you in! Excellent and interactive production
Everyone involved made such a great effort. The challenge was fun and exciting and very much needed as a distraction in the current situation.
Many thanks and congrats to the team for putting on a great experience.
This was a great self-paced mystery with an interesting story line. Complex enough to keep you thinking but not impossible to give us hope. It was entertaining to watch the characters live during the interrogation!
Thank you for getting our brains working and our suspicious minds racing.
