An exciting hour! A lot of fun, indeed. You get little to no explanation of how things work, so it is best to know how escape games work a little bit. But great fun, would recommend!

Together with 4 friends, we went to Ieper to do this escape room. It was my third one. In contrast to the other ones, there were only about 2 classic combination locks. All the other 'locks' were special ways to open a door or drawer...More

Our first time in this kind of activity. The Longest Hour passed so quickly. Very good puzzles to solve. An excellent way to pass time in Ieper. Very well organized from booking to completion. The whole family enjoyed the experience. Thank You

This was our first escape room experience and we absolutely loved it! It was really great to work together with our kids (10, 13, 14) to get through all puzzles. We had to divide the work according to our abilities and work against the clock....More

We did this with 3 kids (aged 8,9 & 10) and had a great time. Had no idea what to expect, but we had a blast. Failed to accomplish the task in the 60 minutes but had so much fun trying.

We participated in the game in a group of four friends on 23 April 2016. Since we were completely thrilled and enjoyed the game from the beginning to the end, we would definitely recommend this activity to anyone. An absolute must-do.

When I booked this it was a truly terrible decision. Utter utter utter waste of time and money. Naff, really naff. Go and spend your money on a nice meal instead trust me. If you like maths then you might enjoy it. Adding up on...More

Hi Joseph, thanks for taking the time to review The Longest Hour. We're sorry you didn't like the game. Only one (and a half) of many puzzles in the game has to do with maths, all other riddles count on other skills of the players....More

Common sense and good teamwork is all you need for an exciting hour in Ieper. You really have to turn around every piece of furniture in all the rooms. This was our first escape game, but definitely not our last one.

Last year I did an escape game in Paphos, Cyprus but I loved this one even more because instead of just a room, there is a whole house to discover. Gives a lot more opportunities! The riddles and puzzles are original. Fantastic to do! Always...More
