Ice Tiki

Ice Tiki by Way Out in Athens

If you will ask me what I have done during lockdown, I’d mostly say “watch Netflix”, “bake some bread”, and “play games on the Switch”. If you will ask the owner of Ice Tiki the same question, he’d respond with “got bored, tried to find something to do, decided to […]

Haunted Hotel

Haunted Hotel by The Codey in Bucharest

The Codex offers 5 Escape Rooms and 2 so-called “Challenge Rooms” (games for larger groups in which points are at stake). The Haunted Hotel by The Codex is surprisingly only playable in English. The room is advertised for ages 13 and up. The success rate (teams that checked in… and […]

Prometheus

Prometheus by Clock Escape Rooms in Athens

Our goal in the room is very clear – infiltrate a hightech AI, steal its data, and escape. Simple, right? Many Futuristic escape rooms have the same issue – they feel very “cold” and “digital”, and lose some of the magic of escape rooms escaping from the computer to the […]

Steampunk Chronicles

Steampunk Chronicals by Troll Escape Rooms in Bucharest

The owners are passionate gamers and therefore, according to their own statements, create their own rooms in the way they would like to play escape games themselves. Exciting, immersive missions, with a lot of passion and attention to detail, a high degree of automation, special effects and high-quality decor. Troll […]

Hellevator

Hellevator by Escapepolis Galatsi in Athens

This may not come as a shock to anyone, given its name, but Hellevator is a small room. Very small extremely small. Essentially, in the size of a fancy elevator. But to be clear, this is not a complaint. Quite the opposite, actually. I was very intrigued about playing this […]

Tahicardia

Tahicardia by The Void in Bucharest

With a playing time of 100 minutes, Tahicardia is currently the longest Escape Room in Bucharest. The setting is strongly reminiscent of the horror thriller Saw. However, I would rather describe this room as atmospheric and not classify it in the horror genre. The plot is about a team of […]

The Amulet of Zorro

The Amulet of Zorro by LOCKEDup in Bucharest

LOCKEDup in Bucharest offers four different Escape Games at two locations. We played three of them. The fourth room, Blacklist, was unfortunately “under construction”. “The Amulet of Zorro” was our first game in Bucharest. It is a refreshingly new theme for an Escape Adventure. Zorro, the masked folk hero, is […]

The Secret of Amerinda

The Secret of Amerinda by Influx in Madrid, Spain

This was the last room in ~70 room trip, so I was quite sad going into it. Thankfully, this room was a great way to finish trip. As one last mission, we had to travel to medieval times, in search of a missing doctor after their experiment failed, and they […]

The Disappearance of the Professor

THE DISAPPEARANCE OF THE PROFESSOR by La cronósfera in Madrid

Welcome to the Chronosphere agency of time! I love escape rooms that deal with time, time travel, and anything related. We are sent 100 years to the past, to investigate a problematic timeline, and discover the secrets of the disappearance of Professor Maimonides. I really hoped for a room that […]
