“Waste of a day”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2014 via mobile

We had to take a long train ride including changing stations from Sitges to get to this attraction. Once we got there we walked around for an hour looking for it and none of the locals knew what it was. We had followed all the directions on the website but it turned out the shutters had been down and the only sign they had was on the window covered by the shutter. When we eventually got in the woman opened the locked door a tiny crack and asked if we had a booking, we did not, then she said we can book for later but it's €44!! That's a bit much for an hour of a game we only went to to pass a little time. We only went there as it was ranked 4th on tripadvisor but I'll have to disagree with the other reviews.

I am really sorry that you have this opinion, although you did not play our game.
I was wondering why you came from far away without a booking and not knowing the price of this type of atraction. From TripAdvisor you can see all the information that you need for no waste your time: we have a phone number, an e-mail and a website where you can review all the details.
About the way I opened the door it was because there was a team playing and they can not be disturb or be interrupted, this is why we have an online booking system.
Respecting the price, I would like that you play an escape room to know why the price is 44 euros, really it is a cheap price for the service.
Regards,
Margot

“Interesting new thing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2014

We did the roomin experience. It is very different from what you are used to as a tourist.

They put you inside a room and you have to find a way to come out.

It is NOT a claustrophobic or scary situation. So don't worry. You will never fill traped or in danger. It's like playing clue but in real life.

It was "fun" but not as fun as i expected. It looks like something very amateur yet. They give you paper clues; some on them are a little too used and need to be renewed. Also the objects and furniture are a little old or cheap.

Nice experience but I think it needs to be reorganised and invest a little more money to create a more professional thing...

Hello Camila, thank you very much for your opinion.
We understand that these sort of games are not so funny for everybody.
Our game was made by 4 people, two of them pedagogues (specialized game dynamics) and a creative professional.
About the paper clues we plasticised them because some participants are not careful and trample them. For this reason we can not use very expensive furniture or objects, most people, believe me, throw the objects to the floor or the walls and are not careful at all. So we have to have resistance materials and some of them are expensive. Also, the set has to be a little careless because if you remember you enter into the lair of a gangster, so the feeling has to be really felt.
Regards,
Margot Alvarez

“The great escape!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

It was an hour of great fun solving puzzles. We could have easily added another 30 or 60 minutes, but luckily little hints coming through the mail a lot helped us along to finish just in time.

All in all, the puzzles are well thought out and time just flies by. If you're looking for something different while in Barcelona, you've just found it.

“Great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2014

Well worth booking this if your in Barcelona. We went as a group of four which was great for us as we all got really involved and had to work as a team. The clues that are posted to you through a letter box are very helpful if you are stuck! Very tricky but excellent if you like to solve puzzles and find clues

An hour full of clues, teamwork, communication, puzzling, thinking, perseverance and mind-buggling situations. Well managed to allow to proceed to next levels. Excellent for families or teamwork.
