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.

Excellent room with good mix of puzzle difficulty and some very original mechanics, though I can’t elaborate without spoilers.

The host is also brilliant and customer service and communication was excellent. Would highly reccomend.

A very well designed room - superb flow and difficulty-curve to the puzzles, fantastic GMing, and the whole room is very well finished and polished. It's also a fun room (which we happen to think is very important) - you're sure to be laughing at various points! A good range of puzzles (including an absolutely brilliant "interaction"), all of which make logical sense - and impressively seamless tech. It's not a cinematic-showdown groundbreakingly-epic type room, but it is extremely well executed and we had a fantastic experience - very much recommended.

Amazing host and lots of fun (even an interactive part we really enjoyed!) There are a few things in this game that really stood out to us but I can't mention without spoiling the room. Definitely give a go if in the area. We can't wait for the next room 😊

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!
