Fun themed game based on the classic film and series of books, combines tropes of both to create a harder than it looks room but some parts will put a definite smile on your face.

Room itself was great and the theming was amazing, we did unfortunately have a problem with a faulty puzzle towards the end which kind of ruined the whole room for us. That being said, Alex the manager has been great and given us a full refund and another room booking free of charge. Cannot fault customer service.

Reviews by escape room review sites

With so many rooms based on classic stories ranging from Alice In Wonderland to Sherlock and Dracula it’s perhaps surprising that there aren’t more escape rooms themed for The Wizard of Oz; aside from one play at home game, this is the first I’ve seen. The Panic Room’s take on the story tasks you with finding courage, heart and brains through a set of locations familiar from the book or movie.
Suitably for the theme, Oz is pitched for family groups, with the ideal audience being a group with ad...
A round-up of five games I played at the Panic Room with highlights being Wizard of Oz and Revolucion Ole.
Don’t be fooled by the theme, this room will give both families and enthusiasts entertainment, and is challenging enough for both.

We are taken down the yellow brick road to lend a hand to The Tinman, The Scarecrow and Lion to help them look after the Emerald City.

A pleasant hot air ballon ride and an even more pleasant crash landing took us to the wonderful kingdom of Oz. We found ourselves dealing with flying monkeys, mice and a rather angry Toto. Lions and Scarecrows and Tin Men, oh my!
The theming of this room was incredible! It really felt like stepping into The Emerald City and even though there were plenty of puzzles to be getting stuck into, we couldn’t help but pause to admire the décor!

A well designed and good looking room, some really good puzzles, some a little different to the norm, a very nice room. 

Another solid game from the guys at The Panic Room. Dont let the family theme fool you, its still a work out for your brain cells.
