The area
Address
Neighborhood: Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
How to get there

I've been in Maximum Escape 1 and 2 in the same day with one friend. You can tell that we had a great fun! Our game masters Fede and Daniel were all into the theme, they were observative, authentic, their involvent was really awesome. And Fede especially was a real gem to meet there, so nice and welcoming. :) We liked both of the escape rooms: Prisoners of Alkaban and The Dungeon. I really recommend to visit both, but if I have to choose The Dungeon has some really cool tricks! Have a great time!

Maximum Escape was a nice discovery during our week of vacation in Barcelona. We enjoyed our first experience so much that we booked two other experiences before leaving. One of those we did, Gangsters, was surprisingly good in its immersion. mostly thanks to our Game Master Fede, who performed very well in his roleplaying. Now what we enjoyed too in Maximum Escape is their ideas for room puzzles and the complexity of the interactions they offer, whcih we, as experienced escape game players, don't see that often and that is very appreciated.

We will definitely try more rooms when we come back to Barcelona !

While in vacation in Barcelona for a week, we booked an hour at the "Dungeon" escape room for us and our daughters (10 & 14). The Maximum host, Fede, was very welcoming and helpful when we arrived, but quickly turned into the "dungeon master" and scared us into the start of the room! The puzzles were tricky but solvable, and each solution revealed a new problem or room. We found ourselves running back and forth through several rooms to get to the final solution. We HIGHLY recommend this adventure. And in case you're curious, we made it out with 3 minutes to spare!

We had so much fun and adrenaline while escaping from the Gangster room. Our game master, Aaron was super friendly and helpful. He was totally in character and made us enjoy the game even more. The whole setup and the rooms were really thought throught, the clues and keys were nicely connected and we had a great "escape from this reality". Would definitely recommend and will come back again!

We were very disappointed by the Gangster room today. It was more like a guided experience than an escape game. The logic among different actions and manipulations was not clear at all, and the total absence of egnimas was a huge and surprising disappointment. Due to the poor quality of the radio with a lot of background noise, we barely undetstood what the game master was trying to say. At the end, everyone became frustrated and tired.

Hi Jade, First of all, thank you for posting a review, it helps us to improve. Gangsters is one of our oldest games in our company and also one of the most loved games by our customers. Our types of puzzles in the rooms are not based on locks and mathematical codes, which is perhaps what you were expecting. Our games are 100% immersive and all the enigmas are related to the theme of each game, so we find it very unfair to mention the absence of puzzles, as it is not a reality. Likewise, we apologize for the technical failure you mention, which was fixed that same day. Best regards!

We had so much fun! These are unusual escape rooms, very immersive and detailed. Some are more of an experience. Our game masters Federico, Angela, Felipe, and Gerry were fantastic and so sweet and friendly. They were all fully committed to making the experience engaging. Really impressive production values and room design.

Our favorites were Vault 27, The Dungeon (much more challenging than we were expecting), and The Overlook Hotel.

I played around 70 escape games in my life but the Vault 27 is, by far, the best experience I ever had into a room.
The quality of the decor, the playfulness of the enigmas, the surprises all along the game were just so enjoyable.
If you have to do one room in your life it should be this one.
Finally this great experience owes a lot to Lorena, who is the greatest game master ! Thank to her to participate to a lovely ending of our Barcelona journey !

We pre booked to do a game together on the evening we arrived into Barcelona. The booking process was easy however on arrival we were asked if we had any cash... no we didn’t and there was no way after 2 hours of sleep and sightseeing all day if we were gonna waste time finding an ATM and then coming back the do the game. I cannot believe in this day and age that EFTPOS is not available everywhere. Furthermore, the confirmation and booking email did NOT mention cash only or otherwise I could understand to be organised and have cash. Not happy and won’t bother trying to go again.

My sisters and I had so much fun at this escape room. We've done a couple and this was the best by far. Alberto, Game Master extraordinaire, made this interactive escape room so awesome. He communicated well in English and didn't spoil the game by giving obvious clues. Thanks Alberto! You're the best!!
