"We had the best time at Alcotraz in London. Our group was split into separate cells which was a fun way to get to know my group better. We were given equipment to help smuggle in our contraband and we got what we didn't drink given back to us."
"As a team we had done escape rooms, flight club and a few other activities in London before but Alcotraz was the perfect venue for a something completely different and was so much fun as a team. We had been flight club during the day and Alcotraz was a great end to a fun day out."
"The perfect experience for teammates and a great place to bond with the work. The team involved got the whole group involved and the "chicken soup" was amazing."
"We had to complete challenges as part of the experience which was so much fun and a bit of friendly competition amongst our group. We went right after visiting a ball pit experience so we were ready for a drink by the time we got to Alcotraz and every round was as delicious as the last."
