A Tourist's Review of Prague Escape Rooms

A wrap up of all the games we played in Prague – ten companies, 13 venues, 25 games. In summary, an excellent city to visit both as a tourist and as an escaper with quality games in a variety of interesting themes and particularly impressive for beautiful games.

Prague Escape Review: Elixir Mystery

A good game, with enjoyable and harder-than-average puzzles. Its location in the heart of the city, the impressive introduction, the thematic venue and a visually impressive but short finale makes it a good option, especially if you want to justify your visit as “tourism”.

Crime Runners (Vienna/Wien, Austria): Going Underground

A fantastic game which delivers ninety minutes of adventure and puts Vienna firmly on to the escape room map. It’s a game with no weak areas – the decoration, the story, the puzzles, the sense of exploration, the transition between rooms and the special effects are all impressive and combine to create an experience that you shouldn’t miss.

A Tourist's Review of Vienna Escape Rooms

A round up of all the games we played in Vienna – a great starting point for tourists to the city of what to play (Crime Runners!) and what to avoid (MindX!).

Prague Escape Review: Coderoom

A review of the two games at Coderoom – one of which was average and the other of which was significantly poorer.

Prague Escape Review: The Padlock - Cemetery

Another great experience from the team at the Padlock. A stunningly decorated game with solid puzzles and good theatrical moments. Well worth playing if you’re in Prague.

Prague Escape Review: Questerland - Star Element

Not the best game at the venue but, with some good puzzles and above average decoration, this is overall a fun experience if you can look past a couple of logic leaps and the odd tedious step.

Prague Escape Review: Riddle Twist - Xaverius

A beautiful set with plenty of puzzles and a longer than average duration which I think is as much about making sure you have a great experience in the room as it is fitting in those extra challenges.

Prague Escape Review: Endorfin

A review of two games. One that looked impressive but where we never really felt the game flowed and a second that was very different from your average game – thirty minutes long in a very unusual space and where you play on your own!
