A game that lives on its start, finish and scares. It begins with a bang and finishes off in equally impressive style. In between, your heart will spend most of its time pounding in your chest. The puzzles, in contrast, were a bit of a let down so make sure to go in with your eyes open if you book.
A fantastic experience, creepy even in non-scary mode, and potentially terrifying in the scarier version with actors. It’s got good puzzles, a great sense of exploration, “fun” character interactions and amazing theming. If you’re in Athens, and think you can cope, play this game, ideally in MIDNIGHT mode.
A game that felt like a slightly tired creepy experience. Don’t get me wrong: in another market, this would be a solid room, but Athens just isn’t any old market so, in order to compete, games have to be impressive. It’s a reasonable game but not one I’d visit unless I had a lot of time in the city.
A solid addition to London’s games. There’s an interesting start, good decoration and enjoyable, logical puzzles. It may not have amazed me, but it did keep me interested throughout, and it never let me down. If you’re happy with the theme, then it’s well worth a visit.
A fun experience with logical puzzles that should appeal to players as long as they’re happy with mild scares. An interesting layout helps keep players engaged, although the linear puzzle flow may leave you feeling a little bit blocked, particularly with larger teams.
A fun game, with logical, enjoyable puzzles. You’re not going to find anything earth-shattering, but there’s plenty of fun to be had here, and the theatre at each end of the experience adds something a little unusual to proceedings.
A great game with a real feeling of adventure. There are good, logical challenges embedded within the experience but, if you choose the hard option, expect to find a couple that are less fun.
Two very different games. Swamp of Sorrows was an impressive experience that transported us to a new world with varied puzzles and an interesting finale. Ring of Protection didn’t engage me with its repeated use of missions over puzzles and a generally less impressive set.
A belated round-up of the Andalucian escape rooms we played on our last visit to the south of Spain. Highlights were a Mad Max game in Almeria and D20 in Malaga.
A review of the (Spanish-only) escape room in Almeria. Fantastic experience with a great, gritty set, some cool on-theme puzzles and a clever ending.
