Great fun!
Oct 2020
The Dream Room / Traum Raum was great for our daughter’s birthday party - easy enough for them to get out but challenging enough to keep them entertained for almost an hour. Brilliant set up, a warm welcome, and everyone wants to do it again! Thank you!

'Meisterdieb' -- fun with real surprises
Feb 2020
The One Hour Escape 'Meisterdieb' is great fun. We were a party of 5 (4 adults, 1 kid) and not very experienced but with our swarm intelligence we managed to escape in time before the 'Meisterdieb' returned from his one hour journey out of his apartment. Some of the riddles exceeded the scope of the room and included real world items / activities ... a truly surprising experience.

Besides the nice story and the fun, we experienced the One Hour Escpae room as a professional setup, well organized and monitored and you felt yourself always safe. I can recommend this to everyone who wants to experience a Room Escape Adventure. This was is classified as 'medium level' of difficulty and it was solvable. We left the venue with a great experience and with a smile after solving the riddle.

Master Thief - Great Room
Jan 2020 • Couples
My girlfriend and I had a lot of fun completing this room, it is a nod back to the classic style of escape room. We had a great games master too.
The difficulty would be of easy to medium.
The room is available in english too, with no problems.
The dynamics of the room allow for them to make changes to make it easier for kids or harder for more experienced escapees .. like the two of us! :)

Superfun
Oct 2019 • Family
We had a great time on my daughters 10th birthday. Kids had great fun. It was easy to understand but not easy to solve. They all said they wanted to come back.

Cell No. 2: Fun and different puzzles and great looking room
May 2018 • Friends
Staff was very friendly, the room looked very authentic. The puzzles themselves are innovative and new, with a lot of technology used. At most points in the game it feels like actually escaping from a cell and not like solving puzzles in an escape room, which is great and definitely adds to the time pressure. Of the 25 rooms I’ve played so far this is one of the best. Definitely go check it out!

The best Escape room ever
May 2018 • Family
Great experience! I Planned a visit with my wife and 2 children. Little one got sick last minute so I did went with my older son. We thought, wrongly, that the experience was not going to be the same as we were only two. Once we arrived I explained the situation to the kind lady who immediately rearrange the room for us in a few minutes. Comes without saying it was one of the best games we have ever experienced. My son was so happy! Thanks guys! I look forward to try another room! Highly recommended.

Loved every second...
May 2018 • Couples
This was our first ever escape room, but certainly not our last. I booked this last minute as an impromptu gift for my husband who loves puzzles and mysteries. We were warmly welcomed and from the minute we entered it was non-stop fun. It was so well laid out and enough help to keep us from getting stuck too long. At one moment we thought we were finished and then discovered there was a whole bunch more... the adrenalin rush was real! We were down to the end but finished just before the hour was up. Would do it again in a heartbeat!

Best escape room ever!
Mar 2018 • Friends
Booked this on a whim whilst visiting Baselworld.

Dropped into the advertised building an a whim but unfortunately there was no availability so we booked online for the next day.

Choice of 3 rooms - I picked Zella No2. The company is split across 2 sites do make sure you go to the corresponding one to the one you’ve booked (we didn’t and had to run across town!)

Basically the plot is that you awake in a padded hospital cell and have to escape before you are experimented on!

The room is literally a padded cell (as you can see from the photo)with nothing in it - awesome if bewildering start to an escape room! Once you get going though, it’s fantastic!

This escape room puzzles were incredibly innovative - way better than the normal “find the padlock codes” in other escape rooms that I’ve played.

We escaped with 10 seconds to spare - adrenaline rush!

The guide (you take in a walkie talkie) was a great help just at the right moments but there were some clues that were just in German - this was pretty much impossible for a lame English only speaker like me and we needed a prompt or two here and there).

Despite this, it was an AMAZING escape room and I would highly recommend it to everyone visiting Basel.

By far the best escape room I’ve ever played!
