  • We escaped the Armageddon room and had an amazing time doing it! I’ve done a few escape rooms but this one was easily the best yet. Martin (I think that’s his name!) has put so much effort into making the escape rooms really good, loads of different kinds of puzzles, clues, hints, interactive steps and some totally out of the box ways of hiding clues etc. Before we started, there was even a video about the mission to get us into the mindset of the role which was really fun and unique. The recommended group is 2-6 people but we had 7 in our group, so he added a puzzle for us so that it wasn’t “too easy”. We escaped in around 45 minutes and it was worth every penny! I strongly recommend trying The Escape Key if you want to do an Escape Room in Newcastle. Thank you so much for an awesome experience and for letting us save the world! 5*
  • We did The Witch room and there were 4 of us, 2 who were first timers but we all really enjoyed it. The host was friendly and set the scene perfectly, the pre game video was atmospheric and spooky. They puzzles were challenging but fun and made us think outside the box.We had a great time and would definitely go back to do the other rooms.
