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.

Hamburg Escape Rooms: Adventure Team

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!

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.

EscaPark Malaga: The Parallel Dimension

A beautifully crafted game full of nicely implemented puzzles that will appeal to you whatever your tastes. Would recommend if you’re in Málaga.

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.

After a brief breath of fresh air, it was back indoors with a new group to play Exit Madrid‘s “Cold War – Double Agent”. Having just broken their record

Exit Madrid: The Laboratory

Outside the room The third company that I’d selected for the weekend was Exit Madrid. Same reasons as before – good reviews on TripAdvisor (in fact, I think they were top) with experienced players rating them highly. Not too far from the centre, and as luck would have it, perfectly placed on the way to the airport,

Fox in a Box Madrid: Zombie Lab

Outside the room Conveniently, on our Saturday night in Madrid we’d booked a restaurant just off Gran Vía and our reservation ended at 10:45pm. Convenient, because Fox in a Box is situated just a block or two away and has an 11pm slot – the latest in Madrid. No doubts what I was going to be
