About
An exciting game for groups of 3-12 persons: You get one hour to escape from mysterious rooms searching for hidden doors, solving puzzles, finding hints & keys and using strange objects. Only 30% of the teams have escaped so far. Will you? (The adventure is very thrilling, but not dangerous at all, contains no horror elements and is suitable for ages 11-77) Attention: Please book one day in advance. Thank you! :)

We had a great time at Adventure Rooms. I was researching things to do in Bern, Switzerland during our Europe trip, and Adventure Rooms was on the top of the list. I made reservations during our 1st stop in Europe, and I put it on the calendar. Well---- 3 weeks away from a routine, I somehow got confused and we missed our reservation. Gabriel sent me a note to see what happened, and was so kind. He made special arrangements and came in on his night off so we could play the game. It was great!!!! Really made you think and work together as a team. Definitely recommend it, and such a nice break after visiting castles and museums with 2 teenagers. Thanks again Gabriel.

We played the game in the vs. mode and had a lot of fun! The riddles are really creative, no two things are the same and it is really important that everyone participates! I can't wait for another adventure room to open with different riddles :D

P.S. There is a bathroom facility, but it will only become available during the game!!! You cannot "go" before the game starts.

The are lots of things to do in Bern but if you've got an hour spare and want a fun, challenging activity then you could not beat the Adventure Rooms. Three of us (57,25 and 25)decided to give it a go and I must admit an apprehension as I needed the loo when we arrived and you had to solve some clues before you could get to it! The challenge was just spot on and with the time ticking down the pressure mounts. Of course it's great if you complete the escape (and we did with 50seconds to spare!) but it's got to be really enjoyable anyway.
Highly recommend it.

We have done these types of games in other cities and the hosts usually tell us "it's a game, enjoy yourselves but remember that you don't need to use force or break anything". They then watch us and talk to us to either give us a tip or two and to tell us if we shouldn't be touching or doing something.

In the adventure rooms in Bern it was very different. We were given rules to read, papers to sign and the host spent so much time talking about the rules that when it came to the game we were literally afraid of doing something wrong and so didn't really enjoy it. It was more stressful than fun and I don't have good memories of that experience. Instead they could just give us a shout if we were doing something wrong.

The puzzles and the game is well set out but the strictness and amount of rules ruined the experience for us. Try this game in neighboring countries! You'll have much more fun!

We did this as three adults and two kids (the kids are age 11 and 13) and the kids rated this the best fun they've had all holidays. We went in with low expectations about getting out but everyone used their different strengths and worked well together and we managed to get out in 51 minutes! Gabriel was super quick to respond to our initial email queries and was very welcoming when we arrived.

AdventureRooms is the one of the most unique and entertaining attractions I've come across in Europe. The puzzles require a lot of thought; the more minds working on it the better. Van, the gentleman running it, was very nice and really funny. Easily worth a trip to Bern just for this!

The staff was very personable, kind and friendly beyond expectations.
The place instead seemed rather modest. I think it was a converted basement behind a hair salon.
The game requires different skills such as the ability to solve riddles or puzzles or find the clues, etc. etc
The background music was boring and frightful. The light were too low. The small wheels with the numbers of the locks were not flowing well. I really struggled in the dark to read the numbers on the locks (I had to use a lamp to make some light).

Obviously, when you succeed solving a "puzzle" you are excited and you pass with enthusiasm to the next step or the next room... but if you don’t succeed in a few minutes you feel stuck and frustrated like in a nightmare.

Did the adventure rooms in bern last week. We were a group of 4 and only needed to break the last two locks to escape from the last room but time ran out. We had such a great time trying to figure out all the different puzzles and clues to get us out of each room all under the pressure of the clock. The rooms were designed really well and the puzzles were brilliantly implemented. We walked away quite impressed with the set up and what we were able to achieve as a group. Would strongly recommend this to anyone looking for a fun and challenging experience. Can't wait for the new rooms!

Made a reservation a few weeks prior to arriving in Bern. We were very excited to play after reading all the positive reviews. The game did not disappoint. It was a unique, highly entertaining experience!

The adventure lasted 60 minutes. There is nothing quite like it.

The staff was really friendly. I highly recommend it!

Book in advance. We didn't and dropped in but luckily someone canceled about 5 hours later so we had to kill some time. I was initally thinkin not to wait and akip it but my wife talked me into it, I am glad we did. It was amazing. You have one hour to complete the challenge. Two thirds don't complete phase 3. We made it into phase 4, the final phase before time ran out. It was a lot of fun and the more people that go the better up to 6.
