This was a lot of fun! Challenging and cool tricks, we had to really work together as a team to figure it out. We were 2 men and 2 women in our 20's and 30's and we all loved it. Highly recommended to everyone!

I have visited a dozen escape rooms and this takes the cake as the best one. First of all, the puzzles were versatile and dynamic with nary a lock to be seen. The narrative was quite simple, but enthralling. The guidance was good and it...More

The theme of this escape room is perfectly interwoven in the entire experience. Everything is connected and everything makes perfect sense (in retrospective :P). The whole group is kept busy at all times and the puzzles are not what you expect, but doable if you...More

Dear Jackie, we think you are confusing us with another escape room and contacted TripAdvisor about it. We've opened a few months ago and never (NEVER) started a game too late. Furthermore, we ask every group after their play what they thought of the experience...More

One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and
some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two
of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll
through this especially convivial warren of narrow
streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and
quality galleries. Historically a haven for the
working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is
better known as an enclave for artists and designers.
