How many guests can participate in a room?
A maximum of 5 people can participate in each room at a time and a minimum of 3 people is recommended (due to the difficulty of the puzzles), teams with only 2 participants are not advised to attempt our rooms. Please consider the personal comfort zone of each of your team members, prior to reserving group numbers, our premises is not excessively large.

Sorry, we cannot provide self-help tablets with pre-set answers on them either as this would be unfair to other teams on the leader board.
