Staff was very friendly, the room looked very authentic. The puzzles themselves are innovative and new, with a lot of technology used. At most points in the game it feels like actually escaping from a cell and not like solving puzzles in an escape room,...More

We did the "die Zelle", it was very cool. All the riddles were interesting and very well planned, all the sensors and mechanisms were amazing. It was my first "escape room" experience and I think it will be difficult to better the next one!

We were a group of 8 work colleagues who took part in the dual version of the escape room "The Dream". The rooms were excellently decorated and the riddles challenging, and lots of fun. We highly recommend the room. The guide was excellent!

8 years old is ok, they might not be able to 'solve' the clues but can be included. The 4 year old will struggle in my opinion.

There is a two person minimum, so it is not an option for a solo adventure.
