Our first escape room as a family, and it sure was a success. You get sucked into the story right from the beginning. Puzzles are fun, not too complicated. Overall a great experience!

We played "The Court" and although I do not like "playrole with humans" it adds to the experience. Use your brain and imagination and you will escape!

We were with five people (three firsttimers) and did 'The Experiment' room. It was great! The staff was really friendly, knew when to help (and when not) and their acting made the theme complete. The room is quite tough but really fun. Would definitely recommend.

Prison was good - powerful start and powerful finish. Experiment is even better, you will get many surprises as you play and the use of technology outstanding. Not for the faint-hearted!
