We love a good prison break and this was no exception! It had us hooked from the moment the door slammed shut with different puzzle types and a fun interaction element. We had a great chat to one of the owners and got some more room recommendations, I also couldn’t resist purchasing a ‘lock’ keyring as we’d never seen them before. 

Bonus points for how clean the whole room and puzzles were!

A brilliant escape room! Although the theme of the room is not unique the mechanics, puzzles and interactive elements made this unique, engaging and fun! Looking forward to returning soon for their other rooms!

Lots of fun. A novel approach to a tried and tested theme, and some unique interaction that I've not seen before.

Few fairly unique puzzles, would be a good beginner friendly room.

Fantastic room, couldn’t recommend it enough!

The puzzles were all really entertaining. Host was fantastic.

It’s obvious that a lot of work has gone into this room as the set and props were all of outstanding design and quality.

Reviews by escape room review sites

Despite being a very much ‘done’ theme, Banged Up managed to avoid a lot of the clichés and provided just the right level of whimsy for some good light-hearted fun. We weren’t in this game for a long time (completed it in less than 25 minutes), but we will remember our time fondly.

Banged Up is an excellent opening room for Exit60, and a great beginning to Newport’s escape room resurgence. It’s a fun take on the prison break escape theme, and with its added character interaction, makes for a satisfying and more immersive experience.

Exit60 has potential for many more rooms, so expect great things to come. Definitely one to play if you’re in the area!
