Some kind words from those who escaped (and those who didn't)...

Tony was an excellent games master, had a great time. Fun had by all ages

Paul R

Me and the team had a great time here, I will never be back. (I don’t live in Middlesbrough)

Ben H

A great experience, Tony was helpful and happy to help. Would visit again 👍🏻

This was our first experience in an escape room and we took on the Magic Room. Unfortunately we were defeated, however we had an amazing time. Our team was a range of ages from 10 years old to 69 years old with each one of us having lots of fun. Charlie, our host, was brilliant, extremely enthusiastic, entertaining and very welcoming. Will certainly be returning soon to take on Wise Guys. What a great set up you guys have created at Escape Games Middlesbrough

Great time had by all 4 of us doing the Magic School room. Having previous experience of escape rooms this one still had us puzzled. Tony was a great host looking forward to doing more rooms in the future

Went for my son’s birthday and really enjoyed it, four out of five of us hadn’t done an escape room and we would all definitely do it again and we managed to get out within the hour and without killing each other which was an added bonus 🤔😂👍

Myself and my Partner Rachael love escape rooms and Escape Games Teeside is one of the best there is.

Lovely location and building which is nice and warm unlike some others and made to feel welcome on arrival

All the staff are awesome, very chatty and friendly and explain everything and even talk about other upcoming rooms and plans so it’s great to know what’s coming in the future

We have done 2 rooms so far:

‘Magic school’ which was challenging and fun, which managed to complete in about 59 mins and the ‘wise guys’ which we failed 😞 quite tough but enjoyable.

Next is the Xmas Room and we are already looking forward to that and can’t wait for all the new ones that come in the future.

Highly recommended for an amazing experience.

Either a one off challenge or a start point for a night out as the pub is next door 😜

Definitely one of our favourite places to do an escape room!

12/10 experience. It had really good and challenging puzzles. The Host was funny and made it feel very welcoming. The wise guys escape room was REALLY immersive so I should say 20/10 experience

Jarell Graham

Very fun and challenging, had great time with friends and looking around for puzzles and answers. The quarantine room was a huge challenge and tested the mind

Charlie Ashall

Loved every minute of the room I did. Very challenging but amazing

Ryan Kidney

Great new escape room – puzzles are brilliant – far better than some others and Tony was the ever welcoming host!

Matthew Wright

Had a lovely time despite being a bit clueless LOL

Was nice getting some team members together aswell!

Lord Joseph Charlton

Such a good laugh, just what we needed we will definitely be coming back with more people next time. The room we did wasn’t easy but it was great fun trying to work our way through.

Lindsey C

We had such a great time. Magic School room was perfectly pitched for families. Really friendly staff, highly recommend

Overall, our experience at the escape room was incredibly enjoyable. Even though my group wasn’t able to finishing the room, we had a blast working together as a team to tackle the challenging puzzles. The staff were friendly and accommodating. The room’s theme and design were immersive, and the puzzles were both varied and stimulating. I would highly recommend this escape room for anyone looking for a fun and engaging team-building activity.


The Escape room was really good. It was challenging and we needed a few clues but the host was really brilliant in supporting us. It was my first escape room and we did it with 9 minutes to spare ( only because we got help). I loved it, really made us think!

Jo B

We really enjoyed the Magic escape Room. There were lots of puzzles and we only escaped with 17 seconds to go. The staff were friendly and helpful 🙂


First escape room experience… we were fully briefed beforehand and then guided when needed. Staff were very good and easygoing… especially liked the bribery for clues!! Great design of the room we chose. Would definitely return.


Great way to spend time as a family with grown up children. We’ve never done one before but managed to escape – just. Took a bit of time to understand what was required of us in the room but has a good mix of puzzles, that are good fun whilst also been challenging. Any questions were answered promptly with good humour. We will be going back to try another room next time the boys are back home from university.

Helen H

First time doing an escape room with the family. Chose magic school as we love Wizardry. Welcomed by Tony, who introduced himself as our host, took us through what would happen, did the checks and set the scenario. He was great, really friendly and supportive.

The room itself was a good for a first timers room. Not the biggest room physically but it had plenty about it to make it a good challenge.

Kids really enjoyed it. We’ll definitely be coming back again!

PS: didn’t escape, but only just. Counting is hard when you’re against the clock!

Victoria S

Real friendly on arrival and got a nice rapport going with us. Explained the whole process from start to finish.
Funny and helpful to help us when we were a little stuck.
Deserve all the credit for a fantastic little business with changing escape rooms- it’ll only get better and better!

Sara U

Had an offer whereby got two rooms for the price of 1 so took my son and 11 friends as his birthday treat. They had a great time highly recommend so much so my husband and I are going to go back and do it with a couple of friends and then go for a few drinks after! It’s something different to the norm and really gets you thinking


Excellent fun and would thoroughly recommend. We visited as a family to solve the Christmas escape room.
Will definitely visit again.


This was my first time doing an escape room and it was great fun. The guys explained everything thoroughly, went through safety checks and then escorted us to our room. It was a challenge to get my head round the various puzzles to start with, but it gets easier the more you do. We were also given a few hints when we got stuck. It was a really fun way to spend an hour and was a great price. I would definitely go back and tackle more rooms

Lisa M

Great fun had across all ages. Had a puzzling time and really had to think carefully. Tony was a great games host, professional and friendly
