Me and two friends did this experience. We found it awesome. We got sepersted and got locked up with strangers. All of us got out with the strangers in our cel. We occasionally saw each other never had the desire to escape together. After we had so much to tell each other cause everyone had a different escape story! Loved it 10/10 reccomend. Amazing actors and very professionally done. If it wasn't that far to drive (2+ hours) from our hometown we would come back very soon!

Was taken by surprise and really liked the setup. Especially the actors lifted the game. It does require some proactive attitude, otherwise you get stuck and nothing really happens ... to be inside a real prison together with lots of other people, creates a great & fun atmosphere, well done!

That was really something - to be locked in real prison, treated like real prisoners by mean guards. A lot of ways to get through this game, interact with characters you encounter. Actors are doing great job - really convincing. It's quite a feeling - being in the center of some intense scenes that take place there. Being non dutch speaker I didn't understood everything (since the game is mainly in dutch) but that was not really a problem - every time someone saw that I'm not Dutch, everyone around me immediately started talking english instead (all Dutch seem to have perfect english from what I saw being in Netherlands). After the game you can drink some beer and talk with the actors to find out that they are actually really cool guys. And now friends envy me looking at my badass mugshot on facebook :)

You'll have to stand in line. Hope to get the wright items but more then often you'll hear : "Sorry this is full come again next week. "
Most annoying game ever for me. 3 times i found a possible escape route only after a long wait in line to hear sorry full come again next week for this room.
What should have been a nice relaxing puzzle day became an annoying wait in line and sorry you're to late, completly destroying any hope you might have to escape, as once you've waisted time waiting in one line you'll never be in time for another.

I had a lot of high expectations because of all the (social) media attention widespread for months now, but for me it was an utter disappointment. After I had to wait for twenty minutes before getting in, than 50 mins before I got my costume, finally the game started roughly after 1.5 hours. The game itself was very boring; searching for certain objects in the cell which you had to exchange with everyone to crack the code to....escape? Not really, because after the game everyone had to go back into his cell simply waiting for 20 minutes before the game ended. In my experience, the whole game consisted out of waiting, waiting, and some sparks of fun. Compare the dozen of escape games I played throughout the country, this was very expensive and not fun at all...

As everyone I had great expectation because of all social media attention and word of mouth. I had a terrible experience, really not worse for the price. It was very boring, just hanging around from one floor to another and nothing much to do. Their website mentions that English speaker also have fun: well really not! The fact of not understand people around made me pass away various clues. The dynamic of the game is really not there. Great thing was to actually visit the prison, that's all.

Everything is said in Dutch, there is zero chance u can escape by yourself. You have to get help from the guards.

They should have a sign that you don’t speak Dutch so the guard can speak to you in English. Or create team from the get go. So u can do something if u don’t get a clue from the beginning as some people from your team will share their clues or translate

The decor is incredible though and actor are ok

Hey Jonathan D, thank you for taking the time to review us here. We highly value our player's feedback. Although our actors are capable of switching between Dutch and English during individual interaction, it does remain a problem sometimes to see at first glance who is English speaking and who is not. We have a handful of solutions that we are implementing in the game to make participation by international players during the regular games as smooth as possible. We started to organise exclusive international editions, in which the entire game is played in English. For regular games we communicate that the entire game is in Dutch, however if an English-only speaker should attend, then we're thinking of marking their name-tag so actors know when to start a conversation in English or not. We strive to give all our players, regardless of whether they speak Dutch or English only, a great time.

You've seen Shawshank Redemption, Escape, The Wire...or any other prison movie? You've always wanted to play a role like that? Well, here is you chance. You can be the scary mouse or the biggest thug (no physical stuff - keep it pleasant folks). The actors/organizers are well-capable of dealing with the story you make for yourself. Use the character you create for yourself to interact with inmates (players and actors), guards, social worker...find and listen to clues...and get out! Best of luck, but more importantly: immerse yourself and have fun!

What a great impressive experience! And what a support I got during the experience being French (I do speak English) and with my timid daughter (21) with an anxiety disorder.
People told me on beforehand, one could get help not speaking any Dutch! So in the beginning of the event I asked them if I could stay together with my daughter and they positively confirmed.
We discreetly got an indication that we wanted to stay as buddy’s together and even that we were English spoken.
I was surprised that most of the guards did speak English although the event itself of course was in Dutch. They were very helpful and we “escaped” together and had the feeling we were in a real prison film.
We loved it and my daughter put me to tears when after the event she said: “Thanks dad….” “You made my day….” “It was the first time I was in a crowd of people and felt safe and comfortable”!
What an experience! One huge WOW for the actors, the story-line and the organization!

Alright, I have made my research before going there and it said everywhere that being not Dutch is no problem and the actors would change their language. I was wrong. In the beginning you have no chance to say you're English they will continue in Dutch, and I understood nothing.
Second of all, if you are dealing with an anxiety disorder or you are mentally not able to socialize good, don't go at all. My girlfriend and a friend of mine were really anxious at the beginning, they asked if they could be together. The first person said, sure. After they were separated.
We expected NOT an escape room because we read a lot about going there so that was not it. For someone who is very social, is not dealing with mental health issues and is dutch, very nice. Other than that unfortunately not.
