Beautiful game! It had some things in it that we’ve never seen before tech-wise. There definitely should’ve been more sign posting for some puzzles and we had a very pushy GM, which frustrated us a bit. But it is an incredibly beautiful set and should be near the top of everyone’s list to play!
Fully immersed from start to finish. Beautiful space utilised creatively with scenery and props to suitably match the storyline. Some unique puzzles and a suitable amount of reading required. Great variety of mechanical, physical, mental and electronic puzzles and thankfully minimal use of number locks. Great hosting during our visit which can make such a difference.
Brilliant theming and a really unique game. The space is really well used and the unique story makes it a fun and exciting experience. Cave Escapes are the top venue we’ve visited, very accommodating letting us do what is normally a 3 person+ room as a pair. Unmissable.
Flawless. The space is absolutely tremendous and like being on the set of a movie. The puzzles are terrific - well thought out, logical and flow well. It's on the harder side, but I loved that, felt like we worked for our escape. Highly recommended.
The props and theming of the room are very immersive and we really appreciated how well the space had been used to create the atmosphere in the room.
We got off to a great start, storming through the puzzles and really enjoying ourselves. The second half of the room sadly wasn't as enjoyable. The GM wouldn't leave us alone. We had barely had time to think about a clue he had given before he was giving us another (we didnt ask for these clues). He was actually quite bossy and unfriendly at times over the speaker.
We got out in under 50 minutes, feeling bullied and rushed. We had loads of time left so I have no idea why the GM thought it necessary to behave in the way he did.
We had a totally different experience with a different GM in their other room.
Monuments is an absolutely fantastic escape room. The setting within the cave works perfectly for the story told throughout the room. It's deeply atmospheric and immerses you into this wonderful historical narrative that ties heavily into the puzzles you'll be solving. It's a rather challenging escape room, but don't let that put you off. The puzzles are magnificent and are very well thought out. It's an utter joy to play and has gone straight up towards the top of my escape room rankings.

A World War II theme might not seem the obvious choice to set in a cave, but in fact the story is a perfect match for the setting: in Monuments you are in the Austrian salt mines where the Nazis stashed their looted treasures, trying to rescue precious works of art before the defeated occupiers blow the place up.
Cave Escape‘s unique underground setting again gives an instant authenticity to the environment, and the games builds on that with a great deal of 1940s equipment and decor. It’s not a...
If you had asked me last week if I ever thought that I would need to experience an escape room in a cave i'd have laughed, that was until I visited Cave Escape in Nottingham. Cave Escape currently have two escape rooms in Carfax, their Dracula themed room and Monuments their World War 2 themed room, (With a third, Judgement, opening at a different location called Judges Escape Emporium nearby soon). We arrived slightly early but were let in and told just to chill on the sofa. I have seen some beautiful receptions before but Cave Escape really take the top spot on this. It was stunningly beautiful and so cosy and the staff are all so lovely and are so passionate about escape rooms as at a few times in our interactions we got distracted talking about other rooms. Anyway, we got given a locker by our lovely host Imogen and we descended down some stairs to our room Monuments.
