During lockdown, we were contacted by a top-secret aerospace agency. As expert creators of teamwork challenges, they’ve asked us to help assess top-notch recruits for a new space mission: wormhole exploration. We’ve built the ship… now we just need to find the crew!

In our assessments, we’ll put your team through its paces and test a range of skills. But especially teamwork and communication. One person can’t solve the challenges alone, which is why you’ll need to bring your crew along for the ride.

While the goal is still to solve the puzzles within a set time limit, this is not an escape room as you know it! Rather than searching and escaping, you’ll be trying to score points by solving the puzzle elements spread across your personal control stations.

So does your crew have what it takes to be recruited? Enter our high-tech Spaceship Bridge Simulator and find out!

Another amazing game from Alex at Co-Decode! Really different, focus not on escaping but on puzzle solving/point scoring. Plus replayable!

A very unique idea, more akin to an arcade game than an escape room, but so much fun to play! Had some excellent puzzles that were frankly very tricky and made us think a lot. Really enjoyed the individual tasks. Liked how the game eases you in and lets you get to grips with what to do as there is a lot of tech in here but it all feels very well themed and lovingly made. Absolutely amazing game

One expects great rooms from Co-decode and this latest room is no exception.  Different from a typical escape room - it's more like Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes meets Captain Sonar.  Wonderfully done and a lot of fun.

CREW is a fantastic experience which I highly recommend. It's incredibly unique, being more of an immersive puzzle experience than an escape room. It relies heavily on teamwork and incorporates a lot of variety when it comes to puzzles. There's a lot of tech involved, but it feels very befitting of the theme and makes the game highly engaging. What can I say, Co-Decode have done it again. Great venue with three stellar games. 

Reviews by escape room review sites

A very unique experience with some great team based puzzles as well as a couple of solo puzzles. It’s all about team work and cooperation to get as many points as possible and you can tell how much love and attention has gone into it.
