Nicely decorated rooms with surprising riddles and puzzles to solve. Not always easy but lots of fun!

Not what I expected
Apr. 2017
This was my first escape room and I was expecting a lot more from this! What I expected was to be submerged in a story where puzzles would be logically intertwined with that story, taking the whole group on a journey together. What we got, was getting locked up with our group where everybody was looking for clues at random, just to get lucky and find a combination somehow that worked on one of the locks that were mostly simple combination locks. The flashlights we found were barely charged and the room was really small to move around in with 6 people. Besides the countdown timer, most things were analog and I was expecting more sound effects, videos or animations telling the story and technical gadgetry that would immerse you more into the story. A bit of a letdown for me ...( FYI, we did room 3, "de meesterdief")

Hey Geert, thanks for your review. We try to intertwine the story with the puzzles and vice verse. But indeed, in most cases, the first thing escapists do when entering a room, is looking around for clues and puzzles and that regularly happens in a random fashion indeed. From the point one or two puzzles get solved, the puzzles come more naturally and follow the story. In the case of “de meesterdief”, you indeed start in a rather small and dark room (which links up with the story). A lack of light is important in creating that atmosphere (6 fully charged lights are too bright). But, you do advance to other rooms when you solve more puzzles as the story of the “break-in” advances. The room might have less technicalities than “Lost in Space” for example, but there are some. Maybe not in a 'in your face' way, but in a subtle, natural way that fits with the room and the story… If you like more sound effects, videos and technical gadgetry, I can advise you our 4the room: Lost in Space. You won't be disappointed.

Superb escape room and friendly owner
Feb. 2017 • Friends
With a group of friends we already did 3 out of the 4 available escape rooms. Each time it was a very pleasant experience with a lot of fun and sensation. You are welcomed by the owners themselves, followed by an introduction about the game and the room you selected. If your group is to big for one room I can certainly recommend to book immediately multiple rooms, take a break after the first room and switch rooms afterwards. At the end of the day you will have a lot to talk about.

Top escape games !

Well styled rooms, difficult enough to entertain a group of enthusiasts, very friendly staff and a great location. I hope the rooms will be filed with new escape games in regular intervals as I'd love to be back!

Fun experience!

Last week was my first time to visit an Escape Room.
A friend has chosen this activity for a get together and I must say I was a bit apprehensive since I'm not really into riddles.
Were we really really bad at this? Yep.
But did we have fun? Also yep.

Highly recommended :)

This is a fun thing to do with friends. You'll have to work together so make sure you bring only your good friends. The guy who introduces us to the game was very friendly
