In the dimly lit back alleys of the bustling city, chaos ensues as Don Banano, the larger-than-life mob boss, finds himself in a pickle when his prized fortune is stolen... pointing the finger at none other than Marv the Monkey from the local circus, Banano threatens to rain on everyone's parade by shutting down the beloved spectacle unless his fortune magically reappears.
But fear not, for you, the unlikely hero, are thrust into this wacky whirlwind of mayhem. Your mission, should you choose to accept it (and you kinda have to), is a madcap medley of mischief. You must venture into the zany world of Marv's Circus, and try to wrangle Marv himself, retrieve the fortune, and maybe even unmask the real culprit...
Armed with nothing but your wits you embark on a bizzare escapade where every wrong turn leads to another hilarious hijink. With Don Banano hot on your trail and the clock ticking like a time bomb made of rubber chickens, you must channel your inner circus clown and save the day before the big top comes crashing down. So grab your popcorn and hold onto your seat, because this circus caper is about to get wilder than a barrel of monkeys on roller skates!

Another excellent game from Escapable, prepare yourself for some hilarious hijinks! We had a brilliant time within Marv, probably one of Escapables most fun rooms yet. The immersion was so good you couldn't help but smile throughout. I would say a must play!

This was my 100th escape room and I couldn't think of a better room to host it. Recognition from the hosts by a bottle of prosecco. Plus if you can keep it local  why not. The room itself was very well set out. A good mix of physical and mental challenges.  Stick with your instincts and you'll not go wrong. Such a well thought out room to keep people entertained. Everytime we go to escabable it doesn't seem to amaze me how much effort and care they put into their rooms

Roll up, roll up to Escapable's newest game because it may well be their most fun yet!
Like most enthusiasts, we've had a keen eye peeled for when Marv the Monkey would be on the hunt for the golden banana and we leapt on the chance to get funky with the monkey as soon as we could get booked in.
There aren't enough superlatives to convey how much fun we had in here. The quest for the golden banana is a 'tail' of physical skill, beautifully layered puzzles, the sights, sounds and smells of the big top and an overarching penchant for humour that will have the whole family rolling in the aisles.
It's a game of typical Escapable quality and attention to detail, with the whimsy and heart that is trademark of an independently-run escape room. It is utterly lovely and utterly superb.

Couldn’t wait to check out Escapable’s new room. We are a big fan of their rooms so booked in as soon as we could and it didn’t disappoint.It is really immersive and engaging, it really feels like you are at a fun fair. It’s charming, warm and has soul - isn’t your traditional key and lock. The puzzles are mostly intuitive - the moments we got stuck were user error!Room is well set with the theming, props and noise. If you don’t live near Wakefield then you should absolutely book a hotel and travel for Marv, Loudini and Outatime. 3 of the best rooms in the UK. There is another element in the room for collecting cash. You may want to not trigger the ending until you are sure you’ve found as much as you can 🙂 
Thanks to our host David
