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.

We've been in a lot of escape rooms but this was the worst ever! We played The Hoffman Virus. It's only a single room and all the riddles are totally ridiculous and make no sense. There hasn't been any effort in the making of this...More

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.

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
