The area
Address
Neighborhood: Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
How to get there
  • Centraal Station • 3 min walk
  • Amsterdam Centraal Station • 5 min walk

I've done a couple of escape rooms and there are much better ones. It's a bit of a tourist trap that might do well because of its location. The riddles are quite monotonous, the decoration is mediocre and there is not really a good story.

The staff was very friendly and we had a lot of fun, but this escape room is really nothing special. It is poorly developed, there is no backstory, there's a list of things you can't do because they're not part of the escape and... the door you have to open is actually... open the whole time. Considering the steep price, I recommend trying another escape room, there are many more options.

Escape Room was good itself, kinda funny regarding the theme of where it is located, puzzles, mathematics and riddles so you won't be bored for the hour (or less if you complete it which we couldn't because the speaker the person used to give clues was faulty).

Was very disappointed however when they wouldn't drop the price when 3 of the group (it operates on a per person basis) couldn't attend and they took advantage of the fact we were a stag group. It's not like we paid any money before we arrived so we could've easily left. They said if we had phoned beforehand by 24 hours to notify them then this would've been the case (forget the fact that Europe have different plug sockets for phone chargers and the Wi-Fi is expensive on some providers) but it was never stipulated in the email (which is in Dutch so it's difficult to translate properly with any validity) that if there are any less members then you need to contact 24 hours in advance so essentially being lied to on the day!

When I translate the specific part of email it says "More people? Are you at the last moment with more people? You can contact your visit extra person, up to the maximum number of booked rooms, cash." So it never said anything about to contact to change to if there are less people.... It's a shame because we genuinely enjoyed the room experience, the operation and handling of customers however is crude and tactful and the manager's attitude ruined the experience for me personally so safe to say I won't be using it again.

This is the worst escaperoom I've been to. Storyline is mediocre, clues where not in the right place.

I have done some escape rooms and this one looked promising. Nice open waitingroom. Once inside it was a huge disappointment, not much to find, the room very dirty (they have not cleaned it in a while). No real story and basiclly a lot of mathematics to do. No reason to escape, it gets boring after 30 minutes. Only one room.

We went on a work outing here with a large group, it was fun but nothing special. I found it a bit confusing and the room was very tacky. It's a good laugh but I wouldn't go again.

Found this by chance during our walk around the Red Light District. We were a group of 5 friends and decided to go for it and had a great experience. It was all our first experience at such a thing and we all had a good laugh. Most reviews say there are better and it could be that after visiting another place we would see the difference, though at this point it still deserves my 5 stars.

Really fun, we were with a big group and had a laugh, so I would recommend, but I have definitely been to better escape rooms. The puzzles involve a lot of math (which I personally don't really like) and it's just overall not as well executed as other escape rooms. I still had a great time though, probably most fun to go to with a bigger group (4+).

We did other escape rooms in Amsterdam which were way better. I would avoid doing this one. It did not tie together at all and the story was not clear. They end up telling you most answers through a walkie talkie. It was a waste of money and I would not recommend.
