About
Mystery House is located in the old cinema of Valkenburg. The Escape Rooms are based on old movies, curses that have been left behind in the old movie theatre. Each room has its own theme, its own story, and ... its own solution. Escape rooms for 3-6 players (60 minutes): - The Lost Flight; based on the story of the first female explorer Amelia Earhart, who mysteriously dissapeared while attempting to make the longest flight across the world. (age 12+, languages: Dutch, English, German) - The Zodiac Letter; our thriller, based on the stories about the Zodiac Killer. The code name of a presumable serial killer, who was active throughout the 70s and possible after. (age 16+, language: simple English) - Asylum Revealed; just like groundbreaking journalist Nellie Bly, you will be locked up in a women's lunatic asylum. (age 16+, no language) Escape rooms for 1-2 players (45 minutes): - Master Mind; you are locked up in the occupied cinema during WWII. (age 18+)

We had a great experience here. We did the master mind escape room voor 1-2 persons. It has a 6% escape rate and we almost got out. Great idea for a rainy day. Would recommend!

The mystery house is the best escape room ever!

Each room has a thematic based on movies (terror movies) giving the sensation you are part of it. And the place is thematic too, with old things at the entrance and some games do exercise your logical.

The owner is very funny and charismatic! And give some clues during the game, good clues!

Congrats!

Located in a old movie theatre wonderful escape rooms have been built. Host is a very good storyteller and all escape rooms have a story to tell. We managed to escape with only 2 seconds left for the easiest one called "the lost flight" based on the true story of Amelia Earhart.

We already did some escape rooms but this one is a really special one, which we must recommend. The host told us a great story about the room, the room was great and more difficult than the rooms we did before. If you want to visit an escape room in the area of Valkenburg, you should definately vist this one!

A few years ago we played the Zodiac Letter, so this time we were around we could not resist playing another. The Asylum Revealed was as good as, or even better. The venue is great and the rooms are put together with great eye for detail. The staff is fantastic and the experience starts from the moment you enter. I would highly recommend this to anyone.

We are a group of 4 people, and we have now done all the rooms available for our entire group : The lost flight, Asylum Revealed, and The Zodiac letter. We have not done MasterMind yet, as it is for up to two people, but we will probably do it as well, since the other rooms are so great.
I do not wish to give too much away for future players, but I will give some info as to why these escape rooms are a lot better than most of the others we have done.
First, the location. I know that there is not always a choice, but here you are entering an old cinema. They created such a nice atmosphere that we don't even mind going there too soon and waiting. The pictures you see on their website are real (I know it should be obvious, but we have gone to some escape rooms were they just put random cool pictures on the website, that have nothing to do with the real thing), and the staff is very nice. I think there is a video on their website somewhere explaining the concept of escape rooms, and the guy presenting it is one of the people you will have the chance to meet. We believe he is an excellent game master and just meeting him is very entertaining. He also has other activities, just search their website (city tours, etc.). To come back to the atmosphere, you can wait your turn while listening to cool music, playing chess with your friends or trying to solve all kinds of those little mind puzzles (I think you might even be able to buy some).

Now, for the rooms. Again, I do not wish to take away the suspense or give clues, you'll have to figure that out for yourself ;) But what I will say is this: the rooms are awesome. As the website explains, all those stories have a real background, and the room reflects that. You have to "solve" an actual story, and it makes for a much more interesting decor. The riddles are always in theme with the room (unlike different escape rooms where you have to solve little independent puzzles with no link between them or the story). You really do feel like a detective trying to achieve something, and if you manage to get out of the room, it feels amazing! If you escape, your game master will then congratulate you and answer all the questions you still might have about the room, and if you fail, he will help you understand what was left to do.

Basically, the only thing I can add without giving spoilers is that the atmosphere is really special (unlike other rooms we have done, unfortunately). You are cut off of the real world and can only concentrate on your case. It feels as though you are really there, and there is a real adrenaline rush when the time starts to run out.

If you are an escape room lover, these are a must! We managed to escape The lost flight and The Zodiac letter (with one second left for the first, and a couple of minutes for the second), and we stayed locked up in The Asylum. But we still loved it nonetheless and keep a fond memory of them all. Even months later, we still end up discussing some of the clues!

Thank you very much to all the team, and we are checking your website regularly waiting for your new room. We will definitely come back everytime!

With my JCI chapter (a network chapter) we visited Mystery House Escape Rooms. And what an experience it was! It was my first time in an escape room and I'm a fan! Unfortunately I can't tell you what happened in the room. Only thing I can tell is it is about a killer and photographs.

They also have another room and a room for just 2 people. When I was there they were also building new rooms. The staff is very friendly.

This mystery house is amazing! After playing the first room about a month ago, I immediately knew that I was coming back for more.

The owner is such a nice guy and knows how to get you "in the zone". As soon as you enter the building you get this excited feeling about you, and it only gets better. The themes of the rooms are so well worked out.

As soon as you enter a room you start your journey. Every little piece of the puzzle gives you a rewarding feeling after solving it, you WILL crave for more and more.

I would definitely recommend everyone to do this, even if it's only once. And trust me, you will get addicted.
