You have discovered an old board game in your attic and once opened you are engulfed by a vortex and transported into an alternative realm. After only seeing a glimpse of the terrible world inside you are thrown back into reality. Vowing never to approach the game again you attempt to leave but the door has been locked trapping you in. Glancing over to the game you see the words “The dice have been rolled.” You have no choice but to complete the game or be trapped inside the other realm for eternity. You only have sixty minutes to complete the game!

We LOVED this game after being fans of JUMANJI…highly recommend. Not hugely difficult but enough to keep you excited and make the experience enjoyable. Very immersive and the staff here are great

The room wasn’t anything special and the staff definitely did not care.

Mean't as a beginner game, it would probably have been a victory if we'd had some more people as this is a search heavy game but still able to pull off one or two nice moments but feels a little tired now (the key prop literally came apart in my hands).

A fun game with some quirky surprises. We flew through it as a team of two so I'm not surehow much there would be to do for a bigger team.

Reviews by escape room review sites

We head to Cardiff in Wales to play a Jumanji-themed escape room. Can we win the game and escape the jungle?

Jungala is a fun, well paced room with a good variety of puzzles that (thankfully) don’t rely on clever tech to maintain immersion. There’s enough here for a team of four to work through and not step on one another’s toes.

It’s Escape Reality’s least challenging room and so serves as a great and fun entry point to the venues games. Definitely give it a go.

A round-up of a couple of trips through Glasgow. Mostly poor experiences with the one highlight being Escape the Past at Pollok House, a room that would stand up reasonably well even if it weren't in a heritage site.
If we hadn’t needed to call on any hints, we would have enjoyed the room much more. But in the very first space, set up like a living room, we got stuck, 
The iPad system with time penalties for each clue were a downside for me in this game, but one I am able to look past.

A game that left me with a distinct dislike of sloths, but nevertheless was very enjoyable. 3 very different sections with an array of puzzles, a push in the right direction for a particular puzzle would be helpful, but I stumbled upon the answer by chance. Worth the trip, especially as there are 8 rooms in total here, so you can get a few in together.
