A round-up of the Dutch and Belgian escape room scenes based on four trips that I’ve made over the last few years. If you’re looking for the best games in the world, then you could certainly do a lot worse!
A round-up of the games we’ve played in the southeast of the Netherlands including Catch Me If You Can, Project Ramkraak and, of course, the perennial favourite, Kamer 237.
The second part of my round-up of games in Benelux, this time focusing on those in Belgium and, of course, the joys of TERPECA-winning De Gouden Kooi.
A round-up of the best games in the north of the Netherlands including the multi-award winning game, The Dome.
A round-up of our trip to the Greek capital including pointers to our highlight games like the Paradox Project and links to all the individual articles.
A game that wasn’t all that I’d hoped for, but was still very good. The fantastic sense of exploration, a cool prison set and some challenging puzzles are more than enough to deliver a great experience to players.
A beautiful game with some good puzzles. I think most teams will find it to be one of their favourite experiences in the city. I adored the start to this game, and I think the rest would have lived up to that had we not quickly reached the limit of what they could do from a scare point of view.
A pair of fun experiences with gorgeous sets but with the actors that didn’t really add to the experience. In one, the actor got a bit repetitive, while in the other, the actors weren’t very relevant. Go in expecting an immersive theatre/escape room hybrid and you should have a good time.
The problem with Athens is that there are so many great experiences that it’s easy to start getting blasé about them. If this game were in the UK, I’d be raving about it. There’s a cool start, a clever ending and a huge amount of exploration during the game. There are plenty of solid puzzles and some really fun ones. There are frights but not ones that overpower the experience. This is a very good game even by Athens’ standards, but in most locations it would likely be the best in the area and an absolute must-play.
A game that takes a popular theme and translates it into a thoroughly enjoyable escape room. There’s an incredible sense of exploration, a cool set with some amazing transitions, good decoration and enjoyable puzzles. This is one of those games which is strong in virtually every department, delivering an experience that’s hard to fault.
