Probably the best rooms I've played. We've played the bookstore and the music academy because we sadly had to cancel the mansion (we'll have to come back to Athens sometime and play it). The story and the way it was presented (in both rooms) was so satisfying and well executed. They were like normal escape rooms with interesting and appropriate puzzles, but the plot was crazy cool.

For the bookstore -200 min, althoguh not necessarily very technologically advanced, the transitions from one game space to another and the way the story unfolded were very cinematic. I suggest you first play the mansion because the bookstore is the second part of the story and you'll probably enjoy it better if played in order.

The music academy -180 min was really something special and different, just hold on with the room if you ever feel tired or like you're stagnant because it's worth it. I feel like the flow was smoother in this one and also the storytelling was better.

You can also take breaks if you need them but we didn't feel like it. It's pretty crazy how 3 hours (and 3 hours and 20 minutes for the bookstore) pass and especially for the music academy I feel like the tension was properly spread in these 3 hours.

Everyone in the team will get the full experience. Also they both had something very authentic, not only in the concept, but also the atmosphere and the puzzles.

Also many thanks to our two game masters, with which we had great talks at the end of the games. They explained any parts of the story that we didn't understand and we also talked about the games in general and their creation. I'm excited to see what's next.

the puzzles were top notch and boy were there a lot of them. there was enough help that we never felt lost, but the rooms were well directed in a way that made help be more necessary for very specific things, if at all. the ONLY issue with our experience was that the room was 3 hours, which would normally be fine...but we booked a room at 10 pm the night before an early morning flight. if we'd been aware of that, it might have been the single best escape room i've ever done, and i've done a lot. excellently challenging, lots to do (we took a bit over the allotted three hours with a very experienced group), enough help that it wasn't frustrating.

As an experienced ER addict, completing over 150 rooms, I can safely say that these are some of the best rooms you'll find... anywhere!
The Bookstore is now my number 1 rated game from around the world. However, you should definitely start with The Mansion and follow the story!
The setting, the variety of puzzles, and so many wow factors will leave you buzzing for a long time after

We played the Mansion and loved it so much that we immediately booked the Bookstore for the next day. The escape rooms are amazing!
We’ve played our fair share of escape rooms and can honestly say these are in our top 5. They have everything; great ambiance, sheer size, intelligent puzzles and not in the least an enthusiastic and super friendly staff.
Sorry for all the superlatives, but we loved it! Thank you, Dimitris (and Paris for coming early!)

This was brilliant! We have done quite a few escape games around the world and this is one of our all-time favorites. We did the house - unfortunately the bookstore was fully reserved. We will just have to return to Athens. The cookies and drinks were much appreciated too.

The room exceeded our expectations by far. The staff was really kind and accomodating, the puzzles were really original and in concept. Perfect game mastering, providing helps which were adapted depending on our difficulties with the puzzles, not solving the puzzles but making us think, observe or focus on the right direction.

Talk about an immersive experience. This escape room is actually a full blown escape HOUSE that strives to keep the game story illusion throughout. You are not greeted by any game master or secretary when you enter, instead as soon as you go through the main door, you have already started the game, and are greeted by several well-directed videos that pull you inside the story. The hints are given through your mysterious disappeared uncle through sms messages on a special mobile device, and depending on how you choose to solve the game, you get three different endings with different movie reveals! The action is spread across the whole space of the house (4 main rooms and over 3-4 secret ones to discover) with riddles that avoid the cliche of combination locks and urge you to really think outside the box and use all your senses. We were amazed at the stuff that we were required to do to solve these mysteries, it's breaking all established conventions of what an escape room should be!

We really loved this room! It was a great variety of puzzles and the theme and story were really fun. Everything worked well and there weren’t too many locks and codes. I really really enjoyed having three hours in the vila. The time and pace of the room made it that so we could all participate in all the riddles and clues. Sometimes rooms are so complicated and you have to rush through so you miss half of what your team is doing. We never once felt that it was too long. Great game master and clues from the game master generally came at a good time. Unfortunately the Bookstore was not available in English at this time. Hope to come back to Athens to do that later.

we’ve played 50+ rooms. These are by far the best we’ve ever played.
Would suggest the for more experienced teams to visit, it would be a pity to visit and not live the full experience
