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.

- Overall rating:
Prison Island Benálmadena (Málaga, Spain)

A collection of repeat-as-often-as-you-want games that challenge mentally and physically. A really fun experience that I think will become more prevalent over time.

- Overall rating:
Torrenigma (Torre del Mar, Spain): El Amuleto Arcano/The Arcane Amulet

In a quiet seaside town you might expect a relatively basic game, but what we found was a strong room that would stand up well in any market. It’s got plenty of interesting and logical puzzles, is well decorated and weaves in a story that you can choose to take or leave.
