We've done over 30 escape rooms all over the world, so our expectations are exceptionally high with regards to what we would deem an excellent escape room. Overall, the experience was ok. It wasn't bad but it wasn't excellent either. I think 3/5 is a...More

The room looks somewhat like a prison, but it’s very bare and not that authentic. The story behind the room gets lost in the game, the goal is to help the police with an investigation of a breakout as we were told before the game,...More

These are quite standard escape rooms. Nothing special about them. If you have visited other escape rooms, don't go there. You will not experience anything new. We did the container room. It was much too easy.More

We did all of the rooms and are still very thrilled about them. All very different with new riddles to solve. If you are in Zurich and like to play these games - this is the place to go.

It's a shame that you're really only after your clients' money. Still don't understand why I couldn't postpone the activity, since my boyfriend had the flu. Flexibility is an important feature to a successful business and no, I won't go there again.More

We were pleasantly surprised with the creativity and level of professionalism displayed. The challenges made sense and were the right difficulty - Not too easy, but doable.
