I would like to share with you my experience of the week.

I have never done a similar thing before and it was the most exciting thing sense a while!
Two rooms, grate puzzles and mind-breakers, a fabulous alternative to spend and enjoy a free time activity!
Three hours passed like 15min.
Did you read the book or have seen the film "The Da Vinci Code"?
Now you have a chance to be a protagonist playing the game in "The Door"

We never noticed the time flying when trying to solve the puzzles. Multiples clues, challenge for your deductive skills, possibility to feel yourself like a detective in the field - all gives you a thrill. The way out, which is granted if you manage to interprete and relate all provided clues, was not easy for us, it took us some time, and it was a great fun! However, if you feel that you are really blocked, and the time inevetably runs away, you can ask the Game Master to provide you some light hints. We had to do this twice... Evenmore this experience pushes us to try the 2nd game (there are 2 rooms and 2 games), and this time to act more like a team and to be more observant.
I personally and my husband like the game spirit, and for me it is an ideal entertainment. Thank you, the Game Master!

The Door Game is proving to be very popular. It is in the basement of an apartment block. Two games - our family of four did Bunker No 7. Despite the clues we didn't quite complete it but it was lots of fun, good variety, and nothing too frustrating. A good fun event.

We did Save Mr. Holmes. There were just two of us but it was OK. The puzzles are challenging and hard enough to keep you busy; you don't see the time go by. We managed in 56 min or so. We really enjoyed it and want to come for the Bunker at some time! Very nice hosts and reception.

We had so much fun at The Door game on our weekend in Lausanne. We had no idea really what to expect at first, and as we took public transport, we had a tiny bit of trouble finding it, but we made it on time, and once we arrived found our host very welcoming and he explained everything really well.
Having never done a real life puzzle game before it took us a little while to warm up, but once we got going there was no stopping us! Fantastic fun, and just difficult enough to be a real challenge for two of us, but so satisfying to complete! We liked it so much we are looking into doing something similar in the UK. Don't miss!

I tried to experiment this new way to play which is actually more and more trendy on worldwide base. In this case you have two rooms only between which to choose. it is good to go by three friends per room. Personally I found expensive but I spent really a good time playing this game.

Hello Gianluca, Thank you for your kind opinion. I am happy to hear that you appreciated the experience. I would like to respond to your concern about the expensiveness of our attraction. In fact, in case if you didn't know, we have two different tariffs: peak-time and off-peak time. We'll wait to see you again at our place for the 2nd room, and we hope that you will find our off-peak time tariff more convenient. Kind regards, The Door

Our first escape game and a great surprise. Two scenarios to choose from. We chose Save Mr. Holmes which was a great experience. Very nicely decorated room in British 19th century style with lots of lovely details of which quite a few are important to find the key to escape and solve the game. The game was tough and we did not manage to escape in time (although we were very close... so do not waste too much time). We'll be back for the bunker scenario. Overall, a great place with a very nice host and even a small, relaxed cafe. If you are in Lausanne, definitely go to this place!

Freddie and I enjoyed our experience hugely - from the minute we entered the building, thinking we were lost, the entertaining briefing from Alexei, and then a very challenging, stimulating and ultimately successful hour trying to escape from the room.

I cannot recommend this more highly to young and old people alike....

Nothing spectacular. We played "The Bunker" with 4 players and were a bit disappointed as the room felt "empty" and most of the puzzles had to be solved "sequentially": there were generally only a few clues available at the same time and no possibility to progress until they were solved, thus making most of the group wait while one or two persons were solving it. The bunker was also a single room (no hidden doors or anything) set up in an apartment in a remote residential area. Most of the puzzles were very classic and only a combination of keys/codes.

I have played much better escape games where all the team had to collaborate much more actively to bring together clues. The door is especially disappointing given its very high price (160 CHF for 4 ppl on a Friday).

It is a great idea of indoor team building (especially when it rains).
We suddenly became part of a story and every member was involved in solving the mystery. We almost finished the game on time.
