Hamburg Escape Rooms: Big Break

A fun set of rooms in the heart of Hamburg. We played Insomnia and Time Travel which were beautiful experiences with good puzzles and a great sense of exploration. Their third game also looked plenty of fun based on a brief walkthrough.

Hamburg Escape Rooms: Escape Venture

A review of the Doc Eisenbarth and Artefacts in this Hamburg franchise venue. Both were reasonable games but neither were particularly exciting.

Hamburg Escape Rooms: Twisted Rooms

A brief review of the Twisted Rooms venue which closed down not long after we visited. It’s not gone forever though – it’s reopening later this year nearby.

A high quality venue where we played two quite different games. If you’re a fan of more traditional escape rooms then They Stole a Million will probably appeal but if you want something a big higher tech then Countdown to Meltdown is the better choice. Or just play both!

ParaPark Malaga: The Fourth Element

A fun game which unfolds nicely. Simple puzzles, but some nice mechanics and a visually enjoyable finale. Would recommend if you’re in Málaga.
