Travelers talk about
This attraction is one of a kind. It is an activity for groups in a puzzle house which in its general idea resembles the activities you see on Fort Boyard.

Very exciting; ropes, bridges, ladders, ponds and Indiana Jones like adventure! Totally amused and mystified. Didn’t know this was the adventure we had been craving! Only downside was there should be a better translation in English!

This was definitely the most thorough escape room experience I’ve done before. Many rooms over 2 levels. Challenging and never too easy. Elements of surprise, but not too scary. Worked well as a team building experience. We did the room which catered for English speakers,...More

If you haven't done an escape room, then you definitely need to get started—and Mr. X is an excellent breeding ground for escape room obsession. Mr. X. rivals escape rooms we have done in Orlando in terms of immersion and storytelling. My husband and I...More

9 years maybe a little too young to understand the task and find the solution to escape the room. My kids went there the first time with 10-11 years. But if one adult will join for help, definetly appropriate.
