This is probably the best two hours of fun you could ever spend in any City. I was unsure what the experience had to offer but as soon as the timer starts you are transported to another age and place. Pit your wits against the...More

We tried the Serial Killer (6 people, 3 in each room) and found it overall wanting. The concept of the game is good, having to separate rooms work together to find the solution. The game master, however, who was very friendly by the way, spoiled...More

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.
