  • Taking part in this was very fun and interactive. I recommend it to everyone looking to spend time with their family or friends. The atmosphere is lively and enthusiastic and the staff are very accommodating. I really enjoyed trying to wrap my brain around those puzzles.
  • Such an awesome experience! Had a ton of laughs with my partners and enjoyed it very much! So excited to take on Baker street! The rooms are so beautifully put together and the staff are incredibly friendly! Needs an extra star :P
  • Great owners who care for their business, listen to their clients and are adaptable. I was sold from that point. One room down so far taken on with a bunch of work colleagues. It was challenging, a good laugh and even offered some impressive surprises. Looking forward to future visits to try out other rooms. Also perfectly located on the Umhlanga strip with plenty options for dinner, drinks and secured parking.
  • Before playing the Baker Street Escape room game, I must admit that I was a bit double-minded. I had built up a certain standard in my head and was afraid of disappointment. However, to my surprise, my experience at Mindgame Escape was a very memorable one. From the get go, the game masters were extremely friendly, and might I add extremely well rehearsed in terms of the dialogue that was said before my friend and I entered the escape room. The room was fun, mysterious and gave us the feeling of being in an actual Sherlock episode. To top it off, the instrumental music that was played added to the mystery. The clues were challenging and innovative. I am really looking forward to the Houdini escape room, once I get a chance. And for mine and my friends' entertainment, I hope new rooms are created. Definitely recommend this to everyone Update: Played the Houdini escape room and it was even more thrilling than I expected. All of the clues were laid out in a methodical manner and each clue was more challenging and exciting than the last. The lay out of the room itself was enough to get the team intrigued and ready to go. The game master, again, was super enthusiastic and really set the scene, as she did with the Sherlock escape room.
  • Absolutely great experience. Most energetic, friendly and exciting staff. My friends and I are definitely going back to tackle the next room.
