Netherlands Escape Review: Locked Amsterdam - The Liebermann Conspiracy

A room which was full of contrasts – stunning attention to detail in some parts with what felt like careless design in others. Still worth playing but be prepared to go through moments of frustration and confusion in what was, overall, an enjoyable game.

Netherlands Escape Review: Escape Rooms Zandvoort

A review of three fun games. Each was great in its own way – the racing game with an impressive centrepiece, the mine with wonderful decoration and the Boat Trip with a real feel of going on a voyage. Worth playing if you’re in the area.

Netherlands Escape Review: Mysterium (Utrecht)

A fun room buried deep in Utrecht which will, perhaps unfairly, forever be associated with the smell of stuffed animals. Reasonable puzzles and theme but nothing that really excited me.

Netherlands Escape Review: Riddle Room (Best)

A review of two games hidden out in the forest near Best, the Netherlands. One game was distinctly mediocre apart from the decoration but the Conductor is a beautiful game that recreates the feel of a British station in a way that would be impressive in the UK let alone overseas and still manages to pack in good puzzles.

Netherlands Escape Review: Kamer 237 (Volkel)

A review of one of the most talked-about rooms in the Netherlands. There were a surprising number of weak puzzles but that was more than made up for by a great introduction and an amazing set.

Netherlands Escape Review: Project Escape (Nijmegen)

Great games focusing on immersion and making use of strong in-character introductions to get the experiences off to a fantastic start. Two of their games were good but Ramkraak is a truly great game with an amazing intro, solid puzzles, a neat mechanic and an awesome ending. Well worth a detour.

A Tourist's Review of Amsterdam Escape Rooms

A roundup of all the games we played in Amsterdam including at Questomatica, Sherlocked, Save Amsterdam, Escape World, Boom Chicago, MyEscape.Club, Logiclocks and Locked.Amsterdam. 18 games and not one of them was bad – this may be the city with the highest average quality of all that I’ve played.

Amsterdam Escape Review: Save Amsterdam

A triumvirate of games where you had to save Amsterdam from various disasters. Three solid rooms with very different feels to each. Black Hole was our favourite with a great sense of exploration and discovery and plenty of interesting puzzles.
