Do Stuff escape games, Hostage Hideout

There’s a hostage situation in a shopping centre. You’ve locked yourself in the womens’ changing rooms. You’ve got an hour to help to free the hostages and escape. This is not the greatest shopping trip you’ve ever been on. It is, however, a thoroughly fun escape game. Puzzles involve a good mix of scrabbling around the room for hidden gear and racking your brains to try to solve tricksy codes. Halfway through the pace really starts to ramp up and it goes from feeling a tad like an errant employee has locked you in a shop overnight by mistake into feeling like you’re a team of agents attempting to bring down a coup from the inside. Ultimately, it passes our current test for a good escape game: are there any puzzles that we’ve never seen the likes of before? Yes. Yes there are.

This was my very first escape game experience: it was utterly thrilling! The puzzles were challenging, baffling at times; the sensation of figuring it out second to none. At one point I stepped back, looked at the clock and thought we've got this! Two minutes later our world was tipped upside down and suddenly we were up against time, pulses racing, totally focused on the task, whilst screaming and laughing and hysterically trying to save the day! We did it! Fantastic bonding experience, having gone with two lovely work friends. Now can't wait to try another, but fear few will hold up to the ingenious challenges presented here.

This was the most exhilarating experience! I'm not the most logical person in the world but my brain and adrenal glands have been thoroughly exercised!

The best hour you'll spend with friends and it's in the lovely Grove pub - you even get a beer and a pint for £10 as a thank you for playing!

Will be back again as soon as my nerves recover.

Cannot recommend this highly enough! I'd previously done Hint Hunt, and this was easily on par with that. In an unassuming location (though handy for drinks before and after...) yet very professionally imagined and delivered. My friend and I had great fun playing this game, which is challenging, jam-packed with clues to discover and thrilling. We both came out saying we wished we could wipe our memories so we could do it all over again! Go and play this, you won't regret it!

This was my first ever escape game and it was brilliant! Really challenging and definitely makes you think. The people who run it were really helpful and friendly. Can't wait to do another.

I feel I having to leave a raving review for the DO STUFF escape game, I could tell from the start that the two girls that have built the game have but there heart and sole in to it. 

From the get go its was fun and exciting attempting to escape the room, I won't say much more in fear of spoiling it for others, but it for sure got my mind ticking and was so much fun to do with friends, also an added bonus of it being directly in a pub you can have a cheeky drink before and or after all the excitement. 

I would defiantly recommend checking it out :) 

Awesome game!  Super clever story, nicely challenging, really lovely hosts and great burgers in the pub afterwards! Definitely worth a visit. 

Excellent escape game - right up there as one of the most well thought out games with the right amount of challenge.  I have done a good few in London and abroad and this top notch - a would recommend it with confidence!  

Absolutely awesome! I have played escape games across Europe and I can honestly say that this is one of the best escape game I have ever played! My wife and I managed to complete it with a minute to spare! The game was challenging, but at the right level, and a load of fun. There is also an unexpected surprise which I can't spoil ;) The attention to detail in this particular escape game is amazing. Also it is situated in a really cool pub that serves great food. We had a drink before and some food after. What more could you want! 😊

WOW. Fantastic scenario and so enjoyable and mind blowing, so much thought has been put in it was cleverly done.  My kids enjoyed it so much they did not want it to end.

Great location and easy to find.

Really fun and challenging game! I've played a few escape games in London and in Budapest with varying degrees of enjoyment but this was by far the best! Really lovely hosts, great room, a real brain teaser and to top it all off a great venue that you can have a chat and drink in after! Would highly recommend to fellow escape game addicts and newbies alike!

Done a fair few escape games and this is up there as one of the best.

A great balance of challenge vs fun. Would definitely recommend!

This was my first time doing an escape game and WOW was I impressed. The venue is easy to get to and had parking outside. The pub had a good atmosphere and was reasonably priced.

The ladies who ran the game were very friendly and explained the concept before we got going.

The game itself was challenging but so much fun that I am considering using this for a corporate team building event.

Really really enjoyed this escape game. This was my 5th one and definitely the best one I've done. Very clever scenario and an excellent challenge. Location is great too as it is part of a pub and you can have drinks or food there afterwards!
