Exmouth's escape room 'The Vault' has been ranked among the top 100 in the UK.

The accolade has been awarded by Escape the Review, an escape room review website, which rated the top 100 games based on thousands of reviews from players of all levels of experience. There are nearly 2,000 escape rooms in the UK, meaning those in the top 100 have higher ratings than 95 per cent of all other escape rooms in the UK. 

The Vault is the only one in the South West to have made it on to the list.

Toby Powell, creator of www.escapethereview.co.uk said: “Congratulations – The Vault was ranked in the top 100 escape rooms in the UK for 2023, which reflects just how much players love it! Escape the Review exists to help players find outstanding escape rooms like yours. As a hopeless escape room addict myself, thank you for what you do in building wonderful creations that fuel that addiction!” 

The  Vault is one of three escape rooms at Excape, run by Dan and Helen Tribble. It was  designed and built and run by Dan, opened in November 2022, and has received rave reviews on Google and Tripadvisor. Players are challenged to break into an abandoned bank vault, steal as much gold as they can, and ultimately try to walk away with the prized diamond. 

Dan said: “We are proud of all three of our escape rooms, but we are unbelievably proud that The Vault has been ranked in the top 100 escape rooms! A lot of fun (and even more hard work!) went into creating the puzzles and tricks and surprises, and we absolutely love to see teams buzzing when they escape.

“We have always hoped that Excape Escape Rooms brings something unique to Exmouth, as teams of all ages work together and have fun cracking codes, clues and puzzles in our immersive themed rooms, and of course it’s the perfect activity when the weather isn’t great! But to have now been the only escape room in the South West to have made the top 100, and to be sharing that stage with some of the ‘big players’ in the industry, is absolutely fantastic. Looks like we’ve put Exmouth on the ‘escape room’ map!”
