Overview

Escape The Room is a live escape game designed for groups of 2-5 people per game and located in Lisbon. You get 60 minutes to find your way out from the room you are locked in. The goal is simple yet challenging: get out in time! The games require brainwork & team thinking. Escape The Room is an excellent team building or family/friends event.

The worst scape room I've been so far. I brought a friend with that never done that before and she got frustrated. We did the Hoffan Virus room. I rather pay a bit more and go somewhere else.

The worst escape the room game I have tried in Lisbon so far. We did the Dracula room, and found riddles that did not make sense, frustrating silent opening "doors" and very poor narrative immersion.

One of the worst of the 65 rooms I have tried. Poorly organized. Some illogical enigmas. Gamemaster was not helpful and we received spoilers before room started which took away from the fun.

We had an excellent time in the prison game. The host did come across as a bit chaotic but it all added to the fun. It certainly did not feel like a slick corporate venture. I was impressed by her ability to switch between English...More

This seems a little poorly organised with the host speaking not much English. We did the prison game and were not particularly impressed. The concept is good the execution poor.

We were 4 people. We played the jail. The idea of wearing handcuffs is very original and creates funny situations. I have been in many escape room games and this one is short and not very challenging. The staff is very friendly. It was a...More
