The Wizard's Cabinet

Labyrintoom
Geplaatst op: 07 januari 2022

Literally driven into despair

As the description of the room states, this room apparently has already driven more than one person into despair, in my experience this was the case literally, as the experience was not really enjoyable. I have played many school of magic/Harry Potter themed rooms and this was the weakest I have ever encountered. The magic is completely missing from this room. The setting is not particularly well-achieved and there is not much magic involved in the puzzles. The real bummer was though to find a room with a deffect puzzle in it, which was lying there and was covered in red/white tape. If that was not enough, the room had several rests from riddles that apparently once belonged to the room and now do not anymore, so they decided to keep it either of lazyness or because they thought "red herrings" are a good idea. On top of that they mentioned not to touch something, which I was expecting to be more spectacular and at the end it was equally disappointing. Last but not least, some mechanisms barely worked, which was just the final drop of a rather unsatisfying game. The only thing I can say in favour of the room is that we played at 2 in the morning after a long day of playing and this certainly did not help. A bad room at the end of a long day easily turns into a nightmare. Honestly, I cannot really recommend this room.

A very nice room in Amsterdam

This escape room provides for a satisfying experience from the beginning till the end, with an original start and a nice finale it has also a good flow and has a variety of games, some which for experienced escapers will be well-known, while others are really original, something I personally appreciate.
The general idea of the room is very well implemented and shows how several aspects around the underlying topic were carefully taken into account. The game was fun and had a few nice challenges. I would advise though for experienced escapers against going in there with large numbers. While there is some room for multitasking, there are also some linear moments/bottle necks, that you will enjoy more not being too many. I think 3 was the perfect number. Depending on how much you have played, you will find some things more or less surprising, which is also an added value in any experience.
The Gallery is for me a perfect example, that even with limited budget but some original ideas, you can create a thoroughly enjoyable game. This room definitley enriches the Amsterdam scene.

Steampunk Adventure

My Escape Club
Geplaatst op: 24 juli 2021

A good place to go in Amsterdam

Quite a while ago I had played Judgement Day and Back to the USSR, and finally I got to play one of their newer games. With much more experience collected in these years, I was wondering how this room was going to be. In a few words, it ended up being a room much better than I had expected.
I liked the topic and the setting is nicely done, it includes many lovely technical gadgets and strikes as original, also in the way some of the puzzles are conceived. Overall, it was a very enjoyable game. We had a slow start, which for a moment, led to a little bit of frustration, but I guess that this had more to do with our group and too complicated thinking. After this hurdle was passed, the flow of the room is great and converges nicely to the end. it is very clear what you have to do and at the same time, it requires a different approach than classical puzzles, where you need to find out a number to input in a lock.
One thing that can be criticized is that the entrance of the venue is a "zero investment" place, and even though they have improved it slightly since I was there the last time, it is far from being a welcoming place, which is a pity given the quality of the rooms. Our gamemaster on the other hand was really friendly and motivated.

The Boat Trip

Escape World Zandvoort
Geplaatst op: 24 juli 2021

Great room for small groups

Escape Room Zandvoort had been on my list for a very long time. Several years ago, I remember that at least some of the rooms even made it in the Top 50 of escapetalk. Of course time passes and the scene has evolved a lot since then, nevertheless there are several elements in his room that make it quite unique and therefore recommendable to play.
First of all, the topic is quite original, even nowadays. There are not so many rooms to my knowledge with this topic, although I am aware of rooms that take place in real ships, both here in the country and abroad. The setting is well-achieved, it's not a megaproduction and that is noticeable in many different aspects, nevertheless it has at least one very well-done component, which stands out.
The type of room is rather classic with searching and puzzle solving, although it has a few technological elements built in. For those who like this kind of games it's great, but if you are a lazy searcher and enjoy more experiences, then you might risk being at least partially disappointed. The puzzles were rather classical, mostly based on elements any experienced player has encountered in the past. I found at least one puzzle not entirely clear (or working correctly) and some elements have a repetitive component, that could have been done in a different way. I believe I understand, why they did it that way, but a little bit more variery would have been better. We had also a resetting error and something that should have been closed was open and even though I asked loudly about it, no feedback came. We later realized, that indeed it should not have been open.
The service was friendly, although we had at leats a missunderstanding, because we intended to go to the bathroom before entering the room and the gamemaster opened the room for us and told us, oh sorry I have already started it. Additionally, it is worth noting that my companions were enthusiastic and wanting to play a second room after this one, but in spite of being a Friday the person in charge was not open to this. Although I can understand it, as it was not that early, I was a little bit surprised as generally it is not a common pratcice to refuse a costumer willing to aquire a service, unless there are very good reasons for it. Maybe I am also spoiled with owner run business that go the extra mile and are willing to adapt to the players in some cases. The advice is that if you plan to "eventually" play a second one, book both in advance, as you might find on the spot that it is not possible, even when there are no further bookings.
The game has a nice flow and an enjoyable ending, although we had a few technical glitches that confused us a little bit, and which is a pity, nevertheless I had fun in the room, I would recommend it and I definitely plan to come back for the other rooms. Given that many rooms in the Netherlands are paid by the hour, independently of the group size, the rooms in this venue are really optimal for small groups and offer a relatively good value for the money, and the pictures are great by the way.

Wescape
Geplaatst op: 19 augustus 2021

A fun and challenging room

After a long time, I finally got to visit Wescape in Zoetermeer and we did it just in time, as later on everything closed for a while due to Corona restrictions. The venue is very welcoming with games to play and the personnel there was really friendly and we had a nice exchange.
The room has a nice combination of original ideas with some more commonly found elements. The space is nicely decorated and conveys really well the setting and provides in general an interesting space. The puzzles are all logical and some tasks are really nice. It allows to work in parallel in different instances, so it keeps very well a group busy. According to the website the escape rate is rather low, but I don't think there is anything unfair in the game, as a matter of fact we managed to make one of the topt times.
I must however mention that I consider that the current mark of the room (as I write it's 9.4) is way too high and might lead to the experienced players to go with too high expectations. Nevertheless, it was a really fun experience and I can recommend visiting this venue.

De Bunker

De Kraakfabriek
Geplaatst op: 10 september 2020

A bunker with a lot of teamwork

My first trip to play escape rooms outside of the Netherlands, in a time that now seems long ago, was to Antwerpen. A modest one day trip with 4 rooms on the schedule. At that time I had already seen some reviews of De Kraakfabriek, but their rooms were closed. Hundreds of rooms later I finally got the chance to play two of their games. I am glad to be able to say that I enjoyed both. The first one was The Bunker and being a recurrent theme in escape rooms my expectations were not particularly high. The story is simple, get in the bunker and reactivate the systems in there. Similarly the decoration is kept to a minimum, as it is usual in bunker themed rooms.
What I particularly liked about this game is that it involved a lot of collaborative efforts to be able to succeed. Contrary to rather linear rooms where 5 experienced escapers is usually way too much and some end up being spectators, in this room the puzzles were conceived to engage several people at a time. I believe this is one of the strongest points of this room. Furthermore the puzzles are really nice, with a nice balance between observation, more classical puzzles and "do puzzles". Some of these puzzles were really original.
Our gamemaster was friendly and in spite of not being an enthusiast himself he did a good job. I am particularly happy about the fact, that we were able to make an early start and play this additional game a little bit outside of the usual opening times. For me it was worth sleeping one hour less to play this game, which I can recommend, as I had a good share of fun playing it.

Escape De Kelder

#ANT Escape Rooms
Geplaatst op: 12 september 2020

Disappointment :-(

This room had been on my list for a long time and the many good reviews had me expecting a top room. Unluckily, the game did not meet my expectations. The intro is correctly done, mxing a little bit reality with fantasy. To my taste a little bit too long, given that it is not done by a gamemaster in character. It is difficult to discuss certain aspects I did not like witout entering into the spoiler area, but honestly when the game started I expected to have a rather fast transition and this was not the case.
What are the aspects I did not enjoy of this game? Well, to start with there are not so many puzzles/riddles, and the difficulty of the room is mainly based on searching. As an experienced escaper I think that there is a very thin line between a decent amount of searching and going into the terrain of unfair searching. One can very easily hide something very well and artificially increase the difficulty by letting people search for it as opposed to creating either more content or more experience. This generates some frustration and eliminates any attempt of a flow right from the start. Of course a few aspects were original, and I am sure some enthusiasts will find them entertaining, but there was a moment when I almost disconnected from the game and there was not much to get me back into it.
The game has one particular highlight, which I really appreciated, original and nicely made. The problem is that it was quite disconnected from the rest of the game. As a matter of fact, there is little to none of a red thread in the game progression. There is no logic for the presence of some of the riddles and they have nothing to do with the underlying topic, at least not to me. It seems rather a collection of loose ideas put into a room.
I do not like to be very harsh in my reviews and I certainly value the work put into the room, paricularly in connection with a certain aspect of it, but the overall experience did not convince me. Maybe the high expectations did not help. It is an acceptable room with a few very good ideas, but not more than that. I am sure that if you do not go with high expectations you will enjoy it more.

The Box

The Box
Geplaatst op: 08 november 2020

A great self-made escape room!

As a part of our Belgium trip we visited The Box. It is a different room in many ways. It is a 90 minutes room to start with and for enthusiasts that is most of the times a plus. More time, more fun. The room is self-made and it's amazing the work put into it, there are several details/gadgets that are original and help rounding up the overall experience, including the famous box, which is a thing on its own. The setting is in a way typical, it is not a room that is fantastically decorated or that takes place in some exotic location. The difference maybe to other rooms with a similar setting is that this room goes for realism to the point, that everything you would find in real life it is there. I have seen many recreations of rooms, where you usually have only what is essential for puzzling plus some decoration. This room, contrary to that, sticks to reality.
The game is not an easy one, also in view of the additional bonus task. There are quite some things to do. There was only one riddle that was based on local knowledge, which is not ideal for international escapers, but the reason for the riddle is justified by the underlying topic and it was not a major problem, although some help was needed.
The more rooms I have played the less I am happy with giving a room a certain end note. You can barely compare this room to "blockbusters" like The Dome or other rooms with amazing settings, but in spite of that this room shines with its own light. It is a different room and when you have played a lot, you appreciate that, the same way you appreciate the effort put in it. Do not let the hype of the rating ruin your experience, go with an open mind and enjoy it!
In spite of our experience we barely made it, we solved everything, including the bonus, but we were a couple of minutes late. I enjoyed also the after game talk, so plan enough time after the official ending. Overall I can only recommend this game, which managed to make it in our Top 10 from Belgium.

I am so happy with this review. Thank you so much! Reactions from players like you really mean a lot to me. As you mentioned, it indeed took quite the effort to build the room myself with a smaller budget but still enough technology and surprises to compete with others. It's so nice that even experienced players like you appreciate the result! I'm definitly going to check your website for guidance whenever I'm looking for escape rooms across Europe!

  The Box Gent, Nathan

Most likely best room in Belgium!

A room does not make it into the TERPECA by chance and even though it is still not so high in the Top 50 of this site, this has mainly to do with the little amount of reviews. Obviously expectations can have an adverse effect when you go into a room, and they were rather high, I must say, based on its ratings.
Luckily, expectations were met and this room has without any doubt made into my Top 10%. A great introduction, very professionally made, that brings you into the mood, followed by a great transition into the room. And what a room! A fantastic set! Definitely one of the strong points. The story is interesting and it is nice that it is loosely based on a local legend. While the focus, as the name already says, it's on the experience, the puzzles are really nicely integrated into the room, all are logical and entertaining and also convey the story behind the room. This is one of those rooms you keep on remembering and enjoying in your mind long after you have played them.
I believe that this room puts Mechelen in the map for travelling enthusiasts of the world, who should without any doubt make a stop here. Congratulations on the great experience and really looking forward into the next one!

De ontsnapping van de Daltons

Escape Prod
Geplaatst op: 10 oktober 2020

Nice escape room with original topic

This was our second game at this venue. It is not a particularly outstanding game given that the puzzles are rather classical nature and the set is nicely made, but not extremely suprising, although it has, here and there, a few nice ideas. For someone who has played hundreds of escape rooms it is difficult not to have encountered those before, but really nice if you experience them for the first time. Nevertheless it is a really fun game, rather on the easier side of the spectrum, and therefore quite ideal for families. As experienced escapers I would advise against going in in large numbers, but I have to say that in spite of being 5 we had fun at the game, which does not necessarily happen in escape rooms one would a priori judge better. I liked that the puzzles were logical and that there was a variety of tasks. It is also remarkable, that it is a nice implementation of an original topic, connected to the "bande dessinée" tradition of the country, also very present in the city of Brussels. Compared to other rooms I had previously played in Brussels, I would definitely recommend to play the games at this venue.
Regarding the venue, you can read my other review, the only difference being that our game master was not paticularly friendly, and when we exited the room, the reception was rather cold, she even looked angry at the fact that we solved it so quickly (my impression).

Blacksad - Privé-detective

Escape Prod
Geplaatst op: 10 oktober 2020

Nice classical room

I have been to Brussels several time and Escape Prod had been on my list for quite some time. In the past I ended opting for other rooms, also due to price considerations for two players, but given the reviews on this site and other international sites I had been wanting to play the rooms on this venue. I cannot judge much about the implementation of the topic, as I am not familiar with the character the room is based on. It is a rather classical "detective office" escape rooms, but with some nice puzzles, which makes this room probably the hardest one in the venue. Puzzles are fun and logical, but we had something that did not work as it should have and the way we solved it was apparently also some kind of malfunction. There was also another minor technical issue as well, but which did not really affect the gameplay. It was a pity that a game element that was modified was not somehow adapted, as it conveys the impression of being a mistake as well, even when it is not.
The game has an interesting mechanism to generate tension. It has both positive and negative aspects, as it can imply having a much shorter game and not succeeding nevertheless. The positive aspect is that it acts as an equalizer and no matter if you are experienced or not, you will definitely feel the time pressure.
You realize it operates as a larger escape room company, used to handle many groups. The picture at the end in the photo booth is a really nice detail. The service was correct and the gamemaster was friendly and motivated, although the introduction was a little bit long for experienced escapers.

Emerantia (escapehouse)

Escape House Emerantia
Geplaatst op: 14 november 2020

Unique in Benelux!

As part of our Belgium trip we visited Leuven, just to play this game and I am glad we did. I particularly enjoy longer rooms, but other than that the whole idea of an escape house is something that I had not encountered in Benelux and if only for that reason it is worth a visit. I like also the way the game begins, which is rather common in countries like Spain and Greece, but also very atypical/unique in the Benelux. and is probably one of the reasons that the website does not recommend it for absolute beginners.
The game has an interesting storyline and I believe it could have been developped better throughout the game. Other than this minor remark, it is a very enjoyable game, with quite a nice variety of riddles/tasks and a few surprises. Again, if something can be criticized is the fact that sometimes the tasks/riddles are a little bit disconnected from the whole story, or at least not connected in a clear way. But to be honest I did not care much, given that they were either interesting, surprising, challenging or just fun.
The atmosphere is nicely creepy and there are a few scary moments, which I think is good. I found these well implemented. I would have liked a little bit more tension overall using light, music and maybe some additional effects. I think it could be scarier, but I am not sure that that is the intention. We also suggested havig special editions with some acting. That would make it an even more impressive and more unique in the Benelux region. I liked how the ending is implemented and maybe some more tension is missing, to really finish it with flying colours.
I would like to remark that the critics come mainly from my personal experience in other countries, which are specialists in tension and horror and I believe this game can do more in that aspect. Nevertheless it is great to have these kind of games in our region, and I can fully recommend to experience it yourself.

I had read much about this room here in escapetalk and the expectations were naturally high. We were received in the venue that is tempting you with lot of boardgames to buy and after a classical introduction we headed for the room. It is one room, that starts on a low note, but improves over the course of the game. When I think about the start, there are still a couple of aspects that are not very clear to me about how they connect with the story and why they decided to make it like that.
One of the best aspect of this game is the fantastic ambiance. The puzzles are mostly fun, and engage the whole group, partially through parallell tasks, although at least one of the riddles appeared to be rather disconected from the underlying topic. Given that the game is based on mechanisms I felt that sometimes a clear feedback was missing that would improve the flow and confirm the resoultion of a task.
Overall the room caused me a really nice impression. We played at maximum capacity, probably 3-4 is better. In spite of the minor improvement points, the room is a must play particularly in view of the great set and surprising moments.

De Conciërge

Kamer 237
Geplaatst op: 24 augustus 2020

Definitely more of this!

This room had been of my list for quite some time. When it opened it was still not available in English and also due to the fact that it was for two players a visit in a larger group was not possible. This weekend however no more excuses and accompanied by a friend from our team we decided to apply for the job.
Needless to say, but we enjoyed the room a lot. First of all, it is great the fact that they built up on the hotel idea originally initiated with Kamer 237. I do not know if they had this already in mind back then, but I like when the company as a whole follows a certain line. I do not know if I did not pay attention last time, or if it's new, but even before you enter the venue there are nice details in connection with this. I could see also small details in the reception/waiting area, that I had not seen in my first visit.
Friendly personnel, really nice talk before and after the game. This is a very important aspect, and it is always a pity, when this is not the case. Also here, the fact that it is all connected with the hotel ideal makes it even more enjoyable.
About the room I do not want to say that much, because I went there with little idea of what to expect and it was better that way. What I can say it's that the puzzles are really well-balanced, creative and incorporate (as it can be expected in a two persons room) collaborative elements. The whole ambiance is well-achieved and the transitions are very well-made. You will laugh, you will be surprised and you will be challenged.
A really nice story, well-told and greatly incorporated in the room rounds up the whole thing. I cannot complain about anything and at this moment I prefer not to analyse too much and keep the great feeling after playing the room.
I like the fact that they designed this game for two players, it is not very common here in the Netherlands (according to our gamemaster, there are only two more). While it is expensive compared to playing in a larger group, it is also cheaper than playing a normal room with only two players. In any case, it was money well-invested and I am looking forward to their next room.

Molly's Game

Down The Hatch
Geplaatst op: 10 september 2020

Top!!!

Probably I was not the only one waiting for this game. Since they announced it, I was constantly checking for more info, hoping for an opening and it was a long wait. Totally worth the wait in view of the result. Some call it their new favourite and I am sure we'll soon see this room rising to the top of the Top 50, the only reason is not there yet is because it needs more reviews. It is unfair a comparison with The Dome and it is funny that the taste among the Dutch enthusiasts and international players is not always the same. So I do not want to enter into the discussion whether this is my favourite game or not. What I can surely say is that it is one of the best rooms opening its doors in this extremely weird year.
As I wrote in another review of this room it catches the DNA of what makes Dutch escape rooms so good. A compelling story, where all the details are thought of and a good dosis of puzzles. Not to forget, obviously, the ability to surprise you in a repeatedly manner, and it is great after playing hundreds of rooms to be surprised like that.
Enough said, if you have not played it, what are you waiting for?

Another top room!

I played this room after their other room and at first I found some similarities in the general conception, it is a room that goes in a clear ascending path and while it starts quite "normal" to describe it somehow, it manages to surprise you in a way, that makes their placement among the best of the country well-desserved. I must say though that in order to avoid disappointments do not expect it to be THE number one in the Netherlands, there are many other great rooms in the country and it depends a lot on personal taste and experience. I can think of a couple of rooms that I would place before this one, but in any case it is a great experience.
The set is fantastic and there are really nice puzzles and while there are several things to do, I would advise against playing it with too many people. With 5 it was really the upper limit, in view both of the tasks and the physical space.
The only thing I can complain about, not connected to the room itself, is the service. While it was overall correct, I miss a lot the enthusiasm of the gamemaster, not only as opposed to when the owners are there directly, but also comparing to gamemasters in other places. Both the receptions and after-game is cold, distant and feels like a commercial transaction. I also did not like that there was no discussion at all after the game and it was not possible to make a short walktrough in the room. I think that more time should be planned for that, if it is a time issue, and if it is not a time issue, then it would be nice to get a "complete" experience. It is a pity, that after playing a great room, you get the feeling that they want to ged rid of you as fast as possible.

Unsolved

Escape Room Ter Aar
Geplaatst op: 21 januari 2020

Interesting experience

I did not know what to expect about this escape room, which I reserved mainly because it was not far from home and had a special offer. At the end I had lots of fun with a couple that joined me in this game. Officially four is the minimum, but that has to do more with the difficulty. For experienced players, this should not be an issue, as we did a very good time as a team of three.
The idea of the escape room is to solve different cases, which results in an interesting quite original play dynamic. The puzzles were nicely conceived, and required different skills, related to the topic. For a beginner's group it can be quite challenging.
It is clear that it is a rather low budget room, but in spite of that, it was entertaining and challenging, the personnel was really friendly and we had a nice talk after the game. It is a nice project, what they have there, so I was really happy I played it.
You cannot expect much from the set, but in spite of that it had a few nice surpirising moments. I liked in particular that in the aspects mentioned above it was different than the usual game in a positive way.

Escape Through The Movies

Boom Chicago
Geplaatst op: 07 december 2019

Nice idea, but overall rather disappointing

I missed the chance to play the former room of Boom Chicago and when I read about their newest experience it sounded quite good. The reviews here were quite mixed, some more enthusiastic, some rather disappointed. After going there I belong rather to the second group.
Already from the very start the information of the emails and the website were confusing. The reservation stated a 90 minutes period, and said to be there 15 minutes before, but the experience was supposed to last 75 minutes. On top of that, the website says additionally to be there half an hour before and do some puzzling before the game. Rather unclear instructions. We arrived there at 20:30 and we did not get any envelope or puzzles to do before, we just waited half an hour there until the official starting time.
When we arrived where the game wass supposed to start the first impression was not very good I found a box on the floor with papers inside that someone left lying there (trash?), I am about to examine it, but I quickly realize that it does not belong there. The concept for the intro is nicely done and at that time I thought, nice this can be something, the beginning is quite ok, but then the mood is rapidly killed by some activities that lasted way too long and were not very funny in my view. I understand the idea behind, but noone in the group really enjoyed the fact that it took so long, not to mention that it had nothing to do with solving anything. Said activity is quite badly timed.
The "room" is a succession of disconnected elements, only connected by the underlying topic (going through the movies). The problem is that the transitions are just going from one place to the other, there is nothing special about them, the whole ambiance is missing. The puzzles are very simple and scarce. I have nothing against experiences, but then I expect them to keep me living something the whole time, this was clearly not the case, a flow was missing.
One can clearly see the idea behind it, and the idea is very good, there are a few really nice moments, funny things and some unexpected elements, but overall it was too diluted. The fact that it is done in a very particular space, probably reduces the possibilities of doing better in some aspects. But overall, there are some moments where it feels really cheap. It is a pity, as it has the potential to be much more.
The guy who accompanied our experience was really nice and friendly, he explained us that most of the groups struggle much more, and that we were rather quick, and I think he was a little bit disappointed at the fact that we were not really thrilled by the experience.
To be honest also the ending did not contribute much to that, I was expecting something and it ended up being something else, which was all the opposite of the climax they intended to create.
In any case, my review is not worse due to the many nice, original ideas, it is a pity though that the implementation is not equally good. As the opinions diverge, I guess the best thing is to try it out for yourself, but maybe go with low expectations.

Escaping Belgium
Geplaatst op: 07 december 2019

Well-deserved top spot!

This room has been under my radar for a long time. If I remember correctly, the first time it was personally recommended to us, was when we played Seven Sins in Den Bosch two years ago. A couple from France were visiting the Netherlands for some escapes and I thought about some games to play together with them, that I had not already played, and as they were planning to play in Eindhoven, Erzsebet came immediately to my mind.
So in spite of only 5 hours of sleep, I departed home at 8 in the morning towards Belgium to finally play this room, and I am glad I did. There are rooms that might have been considered good in the past and with the developpment of the industry they did not withstand time, and then there are rooms like this one, that were and still are, plain and simply, great rooms.
Usually, when this is the case there is not so much to stay. For me it was a very solid room. A room, that you have to make quite some effort to find objections to it. Nice intro, nice story, great original puzzles and a very well achieved ambiance, all sprinkled with some nice moments.
To top it all a great and friendly service by Steven, who being an enthusiast himself provided for some nice exchange after the game. So, if you have not played it, do it. I am looking forward to your next room!

The Mystic Cabin

Riddle Room
Geplaatst op: 24 augustus 2020

Another lovely room in Best

After playing The Conductor I had the opportunity of playing this room. I had this review pending for quite a while and finally I am at it. As usual the service was great, we were received in a very friendly manner. They had a technical issue, and we had to wait longer than usual to start playing, but they managed to solve it, which is also great in terms of service. I have encountered in different countries rooms, that when something is broken or non functioning it stays like that, much to the prejudice of the experience, so also a great service in that sense as well.
The room has a more classical nature, but I liked how nicely the story is implemented. The ambiance is lovely and the moment you cross the door the feeling of a cabin is wonderfully achieved. In general we enjoyed the puzzles and I cannot think of anything to object. I have to note that when the quality is good even rooms that have quite a few years on the market are still great to play. This is a perfect example of it.

  The Riddle Room

Nice room to warm up for Catch me if you can

I played this room before their second and most popular one. I have to confess that I had higher expectations about it. It was a nice room, it had an interesting idea around the concept of crime solving that generates a slightly different playing dynamics compared to other escape rooms, but other than that I cannot highlight any aspect. The decoration is nicely done, but in view of the theme not excessively surprising, particularly from what is expected from rooms nowadays. The puzzles were ok, but partly due to the game dynamics, partly how the room is conceived there is a lot of searching involved and at some moments it felt more like working than having fun. It is a nice room, definitely above the average, but not a top room, particularly in comparison with Catch me if you can. If you are there worth playing before their other room, otherwise in comparison you might be disappointed. I was also not particularly fond of the service. While correct, it was cold and distant. I am used to have more enthusiastic game masters, particularly in the after-game phase.

Another good reason to go to Katwijk

I had just played Bella Ciao, when the next day I saw an offer for this room, and some visitors from France were playing Bella Ciao that day in Katwijk, so it looked as a sign from destiny to go and play this room, which was so nicely evaluated here in escapetalk.
In spite of the good evaluations, it was not one of these rooms you constantly hear of, so I was not sure what to expect. At the end, I enjoyed it a lot. They created a really original story, which is really well done, I did not expect some things at all, which is always good when you have played a lot of rooms. The story and the setting is really well-done and both are the strongest points, but the puzzles are really nice, more on the classical side, but quite original and overall satisfying.
I also would like to thank the owner, because there was a missundertsanding on the phone concerning the reservation, and in spite of that, he was able to accomodate us (our apologies to the group that had to start slightly later). I can really recommend this room, and it is interesting how the Leiden/Katwijk region has seen so many nice quality escape rooms opening in the last year.

Bella Ciao!

Escape Room Katwijk
Geplaatst op: 18 januari 2020

A must for La casa de papel fans!

This room is one of those rooms that contribute to the overall high level of escape rooms in the Netherlands, which enthusiasts from all over the world appreciate. One of the reasons for it is in my opinion, that it is made by enthusiasts, which contribute to its originality and is made with a lot of attention to detail.
The venue, which can be tricky to find, has a nice reception, where I celebrated my birthday with a nice talk after the game with the friendly owner. About the room, well what can I say, if you have watched the series, you will recognize the whole idea in the room and I am sure you will love it.
The ambiance is well-achieved and there are really nice transitions that contribute to the flow, puzzles are nicely connected to the topic. We played at maximum capacity and being in a group of friends it was nice and we had lots of fun, there are some moments also where people can be busy with different things at the same time, but for experienced groups I would advise the magical number of 4.
Overall a perfectly round experience, that I can only recommend.

THE DOME

Mama Bazooka
Geplaatst op: 22 november 2019

Speechless!

What to write about The Dome that has not been written before? The fame of this room had reached me long before I got to play it. Considered as number one, by many top players, I was waiting to play it with our friends and my expectations were really high. Since the moment I booked it, I was looking forward to the date I was finally going to enter The Dome.
After a slightly slow start, where I realized one of the aspects that might result frustrating for some people, the game started rolling in what it was going to be a huge emotional rollercoaster. Of course the purists and puzzle lovers, will find some things not to be the classical puzzles in an escape room, but that is also one of the reasons that make The Dome special. And to be honest, there were some really nicely elaborated puzzles, that thinking about them, while I am writing makes me smile.
But the puzzles (and activities) is just one aspect of the whole thing, you will feel the adrenaline invading your body and you will get surprised, one time after the other, and when you think that's it, they will get you to the point of extasis again. When you watch yourself playing after the game, I could see myself jumping from joy and excitement at a certain moment. They created some really original games and moments, that I have never experienced before and one really great thing about this game is also the teamwork that is needed.
I will be critical with one aspect, and one aspect only, but also an important one, which is the story. I cannot say what The Dome is really about, but the underlying idea has been used in other escape rooms in Europe, I have played at least two and they were great, and they solved it very easily, the underlying idea is the only theme, no story whatsoever. The Dome is better than those rooms that I have played, without any doubt, but it also made an attempt to put a context to that underlying idea and created a story (see for instance the trailer), the gamemaster told us a complicated story at the entrance and then you get some more pieces related to that inside of the room. The problem in my view is that the story, or some aspects of it are totally unnecessary, they do not really add to the concept and on the contrary it confuses instead of adding value. In a way it is necessary to explain a lot of what is going on inside, but somehow it does not add up, and leaves you with too many questions and probably not satisfactory answers.
Did it matter to me? Only in the analysis after the game. During the game I could not care less, as it is really a masterpiece, and the screams of some of my fellow players are the witnesses thereof. Without exaggerating The Dome has a well-desserved place among the very best of the world.

10Ø Doors

Escape-O-Holics
Geplaatst op: 04 december 2019

Designed to make you fail and still lots of fun

I had heard about this room a long time ago, back then when I played Casino Mysteria, and was really curious about the concept, but also about the fact that very few groups (I do not remeber now if 4 or 5) ever made it out. Normally, a room like that is a synonym of poor design or puzzles that take an enormous amount of time, but curiosity coupled with the good reviews on this site and a friend that wanted a "real challenge" finally brought us there.
The first aspect, that makes this room special is the idea, which is quite unique, ten doors, increasing difficulty, no decoration, no theme, just ten doors to open and succeed. In a market full of different ideas, this is a very original one and probably unique in the world. Already that makes it quite an experience.
The puzzles are nicely conceived, and yes, there are some things I would not like to find in a "normal" escape room, but in the context of this room it was great. We had lot of fun and wasted some valuable time in one of the rooms, but probably we would have never made it out in time, as the final puzzles are nearly impossible. That might be frustrating for some players, but in a way it is like playing the lottery, you know it is almost impossible but you play for the hope of beating the odds, and this room provides a similar experience. It will mess with you and if you are open to it, it will also provide you with an hour of fun.
The owner was friendly and that was also one of the reasons for having a lot of fun, both before and after the game. I have heard that the venue will close its doors, so if you can take the chance to play it, do it. There is a minor chance that you will hate it, but if you go with an open mind and aware of the fact that most likely you will fail, I am sure you will love it as much as I did.

Fantastic!

This room has been on my list, since I started playing escape rooms. Many international players kept on mentioning it, but for different reasons, long time passed before I could experience it on my own. The excuse to finally do it, was a visiting enthusiast from the United States, so I gathered some people and there we went.
To start with, the reception is fantastic, probably the best I have ever been, you could spend a whole day having fun. The personnel was also very friendly and I appreciated a lot viewing the footage after the game.
I am not sure how old this room is, but I know for sure it is much older than other popular top rooms, but as the saying goes: good things never die, and it was a fantastic experience. I was afraid the high expectations would ruin the experience for me, but it was not the case, I enjoyed a lot, even when we were playing at max. capacity.
One of the great things is the whole conception of a rather disturbing story (see trailer), and how this is implemented in the rooms, which are done in a very credible way. Great use of effects and surprising moments and really good puzzles.
There is not much to say, as the reputation of the room precedes it, but if you have not played yet, do not wait any longer, really worth it.
