Disappointing and false advertising
Mar 2020
For our small get-together of international friends in Munich we decided to book an escape game and based on the accessibility, availability and rating we chose the Madness room by Exit the Room. We love puzzles and have previously played many escape games in different countries in Europe.

The first thing we were told at the reception was that despite of the statement "Our games don't require any language skills but our game masters can give you hints in English if it's needed." on their homepage, nobody of the crew was able to speak English. Not great when none in your team is a native German speaker and only 2/4 have some knowledge in it. Essentially this is not a problem for solving the puzzles, but it did make it extremely difficult for us to communicate with the game master - especially when during the game this was done via a blurry walkie-talkie! The number of clues is limited, and it was thus very frustrating that we did not understand some key words of the hints that were given in German and they were not able to give them to us in English (ever heard of Google Translate?). The game master also failed to explain us, that despite him closing the room main door behind us, we actually are allowed to and indeed MUST open it to enter the previous "coat room" for clues. In a standard game the rule is that you don't open the main door unless it's an emergency. Eventually another game master walked into the room to tell this to us when the first person could not make himself understood via the walkie-talkie.

What it comes to the puzzles themselves, in general they were not very original and what I did not like was that they told us to use flashlights and calculators on our phones. In a good game you only use the tools provided in the room, and never bring your phone along! Also some clues (numbers) had no defined order but had to be entered in random combinations by trial-and-error to get the right one, while in a good puzzle there is always some logic behind how to order them.

Another thing that made them lose points was than instead of the standard 60 minute play time, this one only had 50 minutes. Not worth the money.

the bare minimum
Jul 2017 • Friends
This review is for the room 'Mind Boggling' from an experienced team.

- This is a pretty basic room with straight-forward logic puzzles: don't expect set pieces or creative puzzle design. There is a story premise that we were introduced to during our host briefing, but the story doesn't come back in the room in any way. I do think rooms like this can be good for beginner teams, but it could still have been done in a more memorable way.

- Our host was not following our game so every time we were stuck we had to explain what we had already discovered. At which point instead of giving us a hint, the host would DIRECTLY tell us the answer. After the game, we didn't receive a debrief & the host could not answer questions about what is the correct solutions to the puzzles. I really respect how challenging the host's job is and I appreciate that our hosts were super busy on a fully-booked weekend, but I think they barely scratched the minimum of facilitating the game rather than really being there to enhance our experience.

Good, but not a jaw-dropping experience
Jan 2017 • Friends
We played the Madness chamber; maybe because it was already the sixt time that I played an escape room game, but I didn't find the game so exciting as I thought, considering how early the game must be reserved to play in the weekend (at least 2 weeks). The room was essential and the game standard, no super-cool magnet-release-mechanism, no super-tricky riddle to solve. As a drawback, there were walkie talkies to give hints, and we received hints also when not requested.
But in general, we had fun together and there was nothing not-working, therefore my 3 stars.

Dear Canio DT, Our approach to designing escape games is to create out of ordinary experiences for our guests. Most of our customers spend their day in front of screens, using gadgets. Therefore we offer you something different: an “analog” experience. If you like the high tech games, then we suggest you follow our monthly newsletter, because we’re going to introduce something amazing to the Munich escape game community really soon! Seriously, we’re not kidding! All the best and we hope we’ll see you again soon! Your Exit The Room Team

The lady who explained at the beginning could to do it with a little more enthusiasms, it was so monotonous!

Dear Martamodi, Thanks for the review. From what we’ve learned from thousands of games is that sometimes things get broken no matter how much effort we put into maintenance. Sorry for the inconvenience, we’re doing our best so this doesn’t happen often. All of our Game Masters have different personalities and sometimes what works for some teams doesn’t work for the others. Anyway, we’re happy that it was a good experience for you and hopefully, we’ll see you again! Best, Your Exit The Room Team

Great way to spend 1hour with friends :)
Sep 2016 • Business
Idea is great, location is central, people who work there are really nice.
If you have chance, try. I went with colleagues from work and we tried "Bomb" room.
Nice puzzles, smart solutions and few twists that I really liked!

Only thing that I didn't like is the fact that all this happening in the basement with pretty moldy ear.

A bit disappointed
Dec 2015
I offered this Exit the Room to my husband for his birthday. We had tried another one a few days before, and to be honest, this one was a bit disappointing. First, the room was quite small (we tried the "Zombie") and we had less riddles but more keys to find to open locks. But the real disappointment came from the fact that when we needed tips, the walkies-talkies that we were given didn't work so well (the walls are thick so it was no surprise) and the game master didn't know exactly what we had found or not yet (the others normally observe via cameras, but here apparently not?). In the end, the game master had to get into the room (!) to help us because he didn't understand what tip we needed, since he hadn't since that we had already found a certain key...A pity really, because apart from this, everything went well (friendly game master) and we spent a good evening. But I don't think this is the best Escape Game in Munich.

Dear Parmuc! We really appreciate your feedback and glad you enjoyed the gameplay overall. We're very sorry that the technical issues got in the way of proper hint giving, this is something we are continuously improving as admittedly it definitely distracts from the gameplay experience. Regarding the lock and key type of tasks, this is something we are working to move away from as more and more escapees are telling us that they need better challenges. In fact in our new set of rooms opening this October in Munich you will be confronted with more exciting and complex tasks and riddles. So come and check it out this October! We guarentee you'll have a blast ;) Your Exit The Room Team

Fun and challenging
Dec 2014 • Friends
Find the clues and use them to discover more clues which will eventually get you the keycode to out and try doing all this is less than an hour!

We enjoyed this so much that we have now completed all three of the rooms here!

Our group consited of five adults (although I think it is also suitable for a mix of adults and children as a lot of the challenges involve finding certain items within the room.)

Suitable for English speakers

Awesome time
Jun 2015 • Couples
My wife daughter and I signed up for this, not sure what to expect, but it was a great time, the hour time limit went way to fast, very creative and challenging, we need a few hints, and an extra few minutes past the hour but we figured it out. If you do this attraction, you need to sign up on advance it fills up fast.

Mind-blowing!
Mar 2015 • Family
We went with 4 adults and 2 children. I really thought that my 8 and 12 year old wouldn't be able to contribute,but they were helpful. We managed to escape with 8 minutes left! We did ask for clues (or jokers as they were called) and the staff was especially helpful with the clues. I would highly recommend!
