Great Wedding Activity

We booked Escape the Van for our December wedding. It was great and everyone who took part said they really enjoyed it and hadn’t seen anything like it at a wedding before - even the venue were impressed.
Greg was friendly, helpful and accommodating from our first contact and delivered a fun professional service. Each scenario is 10-20 mins long and for 2-6 people which is perfect for a wedding activity and can be tailored to suit your own specific needs. The activity was fully booked up for the duration and our only regret is that we didn’t book him for longer as some guests missed out.

Escape the van.

An amazing experience for any escape room lover! From our original email enquiry Greg was helpful, replied quickly and very professional. Our guests loved the addition to the day. It is organised into 15min games and can host groups of up to 6 people. Your guests can sign up to a specific time meaning they don’t need to hang around waiting and you get the most out of the van! We were able to block out the cake cut and first dance slots, so no one missed it. We would 100% recommend this for any future event!

Wedding Escape Van

We hired escape the van for our wedding, and our guests loved it. We chose the 10 minute 'Contaminated! Experience' version, which meant everyone got a chance to have a go and weren't pulled away from the drinks reception for too long. It worked well for all ages - both adults and the kids got really stuck in. Greg was easy to work with, introduced the games with enthusiasm and was responsiveness to emails. We'd definitely book again!

Excellent fun no matter the weather

Escape the Van was a huge hit at our wedding. We hired them for our evening do and despite a drizzly evening, everyone was raving about it. The 'escape' was perfectly timed to be just challenging enough but still doable in about 10 mins for a quick turnaround to get through lots of guests. Greg was also brilliant in terms of responsiveness, and service at the event. He played the part and amused the guests. Also, we had guests as young as 8 taking part who all enjoyed it. Fully recommend and great value.
