AN ESCAPE room is amongst the best in the world.

As well as being voted the sixth best escape room globally, Lucardo Rawtenstall has been rated number one in the UK.

They were given the crown by global community forum - EscapeTheRoomz, who compiled a top 100 list.

Simon Milnes, co-owner of Lucardo Rawtenstall, which is based in Kay Street, said: “Our fantastic ranking in Top 100 is a testament to our passion for providing both excellent escape room facilities and giving players the very best of experiences.

“Being ranked the best in the UK and in the top ten in the world shows that, whilst we were only established in May 2018, we’re considered one of the best at what we do.

“ I’d like to thank every one of the 6000 plus people who visited us, especially those who left a positive review on either Google, Yelp and TripAdvisor.”

EscapeTheRoomz amalgamated customer reviews and satisfaction scores for almost 9,000 escape room businesses from Google, Yelp and TripAdvisor.

And Lucardo Rawtenstall achieved a mean score of 4.991 out of five, making it the highest-scoring escape room experience in the UK, beating many larger and more established experiences.

The achievement follows on other recent accolades, including Lucardo Rawtenstall becoming TripAdvisor’s number one ‘fun’ thing to do in Rawtenstall.
