Themed rooms with very dedicated employees and a high attention to detail. The room (Ice Kingdom) was challenging and fun, and we absolutely loved the decorations. Especially the temperature meter that turned out to be our timer was a wonderful idea! It was a bit unusual to open the doors before all mysteries in a given room had been solved, but after getting the hang of it it was very fun and definitely set it apart from other rooms and experiences.
We also loved Simen's witty explanations at the start, he was very funny and seemed absolutely delighted to guide us. He was also very great with the hints, giving us exactly what we needed and not being afraid to tell us we should search somewhere we had already cast aside for the last 10 minutes. tldr: super detailed, spot on hints, and he knew exactly when we were getting frustrated rather than just curious and trying out options.

We had the best time in the submarine espace room! The kids loved it (10 and 13 years old) and were able to contribute as much as the adults. It was challenging but doable, which is what we were looking for in an escape room game. The reason why I prefer this site over others in Oslo is because of how clean, well organized, and challenging their rooms are. Our host William was great and even allowed us to get started early as we arrived a bit in advance of our scheduled start time.

We tried the ice Kingdom room, and it was awesome. The props are great, the difficulty is balanced, and none of those annoying coded lock puzzles.
The gamemaster, Mona, was right on top of our progress and gave us a nudge in the right direction just when we needed it. All in all, great time!

We did the submarine room, which was pretty cool in itself. Decent variety of puzzles, most of which are easy to solve. A fair bit of misdirection too. The steering puzzle could've been better, it was very fiddly.

The experience was massively let down by the game hosts who were obviously not paying attention. We received a hint in the first room, 5 minutes after we found the piece they hinted about, so completely useless. And in the final room we were stuck for a good 15 minutes on one puzzle and were trying to solve the next one ( which wasn't active yet) because we didn't see a hidden screen. It took atleast 5 minutes after giving up and asking for a hint before it was received, at the end we were just standing there asking if anyone was watching... We had also booked the room in English and most of the audio played was in norwegian. Thankfully we solved the room, but it really soured the experience. When apparently everyone needs a hint on that puzzle you should atleast be watching so you can give it at the right time.

Hi Jeanette! Thank you so much for taking time to write a review! We are very sorry the experience was disappointing, we always strive to meet your expectations. There were technical issues on the location this day, and it has therefore affected the service. The mistakes that was made have been looked into and we made sure it won’t happen again. Hope that refund you received compensated a bit for the disappointment. Thank you for letting us know so we can be better! The room is for beginners so I’m sure one of the other rooms might be better for you guys if you want to visit us again - we hope you will!

Being speed demons. The place had different kinds of puzzles and not many lock and key puzzles which is always a plus. All the mechanisms worked and were properly ccared for so the puzzles worked as they should. Thank you Mathea for a wonderful experience.

Loved the place! The interior was fancy and the rooms really made you feels as if you really were where the room was placed. We tried the train, and it was crazy how it made you feel as if you really were on a train and tried to stop it from falling over! The tasks were also different from other places we’ve visited, but in a good way! It made it so much more fun, and it was really refreshing. We got good help from game master Lilly in the room, who helped us whenever we were stuck. The employees were super nice and helpful, and it made the whole experience a 10/10. Will definitely come again! Recommend every escape room enthusiast visiting Oslo to try their games

Completely immersive experience! Engaging puzzles, keep your attention until the very last second. The new room with submarine theme is thought through to the finest detail - top-notch interior, storyline and awe-inspiring surprise moments. Highly recommended

I have played over 15 games so far and worked in a escape room myself and this was easily among the top 5 games I have seen. The interior was very unsettling and thematicaly spot on, the puzzles were creative and not repetitive from other rooms I have been in. Overall very nice experience, definitely would recommend. Not to mention really helpfull and very nice gamemasters Hannah and Kristina. 5/5.

Did two different rooms over two days and had a great time. There's a great flow to the rooms and the whole experience makes you feel clever.

Big thanks to gamemasters Emilie and Simen who hosted us and did a wonderful job

A really good escape room experience, very close to the center of Oslo. The games are for sure challenging, but not so difficult as to be impossible. Just watch out for some unadvertised jump scares, if you're a little nervous!

A special mention for the gamemaqster, Mathea, who accommodated an English speaker in our group and gave a great introduction, as well as support throughout the game.

Will defnitely be back!
