  • I didn't know what I was gretting into when I first walked through the door. The little kid inside of me saw all these puzzles and games. The view from the waiting lounge keeps you entertained, along with the puzzles all over. Once the briefing is over, the real experience begins. You have a mystery to solve with a bunch of friends. Some are elaborate, others in plain sight. The rooms are well themed and clean, and exciting to explore. Would highly recommend this as a team building, family bonding, or even just a group of friends experience.
  • These escape rooms are well thought out and are excellently executed for participants to enjoy, to think creatively and most of all have fun. This is an exciting experience and is definitely worth the time. The staff are friendly, energetic and create a pleasant atmosphere. They take the time to mail you and build up the mystery theme right until you get to the premises. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves! We will most definitely be visiting soon for the newest escape room! This is a Durban must!
  • So much fun, had a great day with a bunch of friends. The puzzles are entertaining and difficult enough to keep most minds engaged. Will definately be back
  • 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.
  • 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.
