A Tourist’s Review of Malaga Escape Rooms

A round-up of the games we’ve played in and around Malaga including Prison Island, ParaPark and Torrenigma – by no means a complete set but at least something to point you in the right direction.

- Overall rating:
Exit the Game (Málaga, Spain): Operation Kandinsky

A quirky room that I wouldn’t recommend to beginners but will be interesting to some enthusiasts. Don’t expect lots of puzzles but do expect a more “real” ending to the game.

- Overall rating:
Rock Escape Rooms (Gibraltar): Casino

A fun game with a structure that should give enthusiasts decent value for money while not being too intimidating for first-timers.

- Overall rating:
X-Door (Málaga, Spain): Haunted Prison

A classic prison start and unusual ending sandwiching a set of fun puzzles led to a very solid experience and one of my favourites in Málaga.

- Overall rating:
Torrexcape (Alhaurín del Torre, Málaga, Spain)

A basic game that will do OK in a small town with no escape room experience but which was lacking when compared to Málaga’s offering which are just half an hour away.

A Door in a Wall (London): Memento Mori

A fun medium-length mystery from A Door in a Wall. Blink and you’ll miss it though – this was a one weekend only event that took place at the end of August.

Red Bull Mind Gamers

Fancy taking part in one of the coolest escape-room-related events on the planet? Well, if you can get to London on 3rd November, then try your hand at the Red Bull Mind Gamers competition!

- Overall rating:
Breakout Rooms (Watford): The Lost City

A far better experience than their first room in pretty much every department: better puzzles, better decoration, better reveals. It’s not somewhere you’d head to specifically to play, but it’s a fun enough experience for the Watford locals or if you’re passing through.
