Dear Kandrewl2 I am sorry to read that our casino game was not to your liking. Obviously you are very experienced when it comes to escape rooms and may not have seen the challenge as tough as most of our other customers do. I assume...More

Best Escape Room you will ever find in Zurich, I enjoyed the game very much and the staff were friendly. only issue is the parking which is difficult to find a spot. however, it's so close to Zurich HB station.

The room looks somewhat like a prison, but it’s very bare and not that authentic. The story behind the room gets lost in the game, the goal is to help the police with an investigation of a breakout as we were told before the game,...More

These are quite standard escape rooms. Nothing special about them. If you have visited other escape rooms, don't go there. You will not experience anything new. We did the container room. It was much too easy.More
