Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: Please book online Delve into an interactive story - together with your friends! One team, one story, one mission per chapter: Only as a team you will be able to solve the tricky riddles and unravel the dramatic mysteries. You take the roles of henchmen to the dubious Operator. He is a hacker who assigns you to break into buildings, find prove of blackmail and dispossess politicians. The ending of the story is in your own hands! Crime Runners is the beginning of a new era of 'Escape the Room'-games and Austria's first Live Action Adventure. Between two and six participants get assignments from the mysterious operator and undergo, in the course of one hour, an exciting and reasoned story. The classic concept 'Room Escape' has therefor been extended by special effects and leads to a completely new experience.

I have played several escape rooms now (in Vienna and Budapest), and I have to say I got the best experience with Crime Runners. Our Game Master was very funny and she was very nice when we got stuck at the end...

The riddles were quite a blast. I never had so much different things to do in a room. We didn’t find the one thing, but finally we got it with some help.

I would recommend Crime Runners - especially room 3 is my favorite. Sadly we didn’t make it, but we still liked it a lot.

We visited Crime Runners escape room "The Crime Scene" together with my girlfriend. Since we had already visited one other escape room in Vienna which we really enjoyed we were also very excited about this one, because according to the Trip Advisor it's rated as #1 in Vienna.

I can't really agree with that. It's not that there were something really bad about this room, but I didn't find anything too great about it either, just average...

Things I didn't like about it:
- clues were really hidden too much. Because of that we solved the first big puzzle without having all of the clues and didn't get an important piece for the next part of the room (they were hidden in the same place). That obviously got us stuck in the next room.
- too many code locks
- puzzles were rather easy

Things we liked:
- the theme was different and strong
- mechanics in the room worked well

All in all, I don't say that it was a bad experience, but unfortunately it wasn't anything special either. Something was just missing.

It wasn’t our first escape game so it’s not an easy task to satisfy us but Crime Runners did it.

The concept is a bit different from the other classical escape rooms that we did. They offer 3 different rooms which are called Chapter 1, 2 and 3 because they make one big story.
We did Chapter 1 and it was a lot of fun. I don’t want to spoil anything so I won’t say much except that the “special effects” are nice and “The Operator” concept is great!
Go for it.

We were two for Chapter 1 but you could easily be three.

We had a family event and visited chapter 1 - the congressman.
The staff was very friendly, the instructions by video and in detail personally
Solving the puzzles was challenging and fun - we did it
To conclude, a funny photo that we could take with us
We will come back and make another room ...

We did the patient zero. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The puzzles were fine but i expected alot more action for the price. Like seeing zombies, jump scares or more interactivity. Maybe some people dressed as zombies or some fake smoke. it was too plain for my taste.
