Jump into The Crystal Maze LIVE Experience – the hit 90s TV show now brought to breathtakingly immersive, genuine 3D life. It’s where teams run around madly, shout themselves hoarse, complete all sorts of tricky challenges and finish up in some lovely satin bomber jackets. Honestly, this has everything.

Fantastic set design, excellent games masters & hosts, all of the nostalgia.

Puzzles were a little hit or miss, but mainly on the good side.  The one knock against is the cost, but worthwhile if you love the show!

It's worth every penny. I've been twice, every time with a new actor/host leading you through the different areas. It's perfect for a large number of players in comparison to traditional escape rooms. A blast!

Great theming and true to the game show. The format limits the amount you get to play and the cost is pretty steep unfortunately!

Fantastic immersion - Aztec Zone is covered with sand and chirping birds, Medieval Zone a slightly chilly and haunted feel.

Excellent set design and games master truly captures the feel of the show.

Fantastic puzzles, some old from the show, some new - a must do for any Crystal Maze fans.

Reviews by escape room review sites

The remake of the classic 90s TV series of the same name. With a million pound kickstarter, bookings stretching out a year in advance and media praising them left, right and centre they had a lot to live up to. How did they fare?
A fantastic experience that perfectly clones the TV show. It really does feel like you’re in an episode of The Crystal Maze.Β 
Simply brilliant. An hour of pure, unadulterated fun. I had been waiting 25 years for the time I got to actually play the Crystal Maze for myself β€” and it was everything it was billed to be.
I’ve been starting to get good-natured mocking from friends and colleagues over my general obsession with the Crystal Maze Live Experience. I crowdfunded them back before they opened their first London venue, played four times in Angel with different sets of people, and was starting to know the games better than the staff. I couldn’t go to Manchester and not try that maze out, could I?
