Frank & Stein

Frank & Stein by QuestRooms in Sopot, Poland

I do love a room based on a literary classic, and Mary Shelly’s Frankenstein has been immortalised by many escape rooms over the years. I love to see what unique spin the designers give to the story to make it their own. So I was intrigued to read that Questrooms […]

The Nest

The Nest by Hatch Escape in Los Angeles, CA, USA

The Nest created a lot of discussion within our team, mainly as to whether it’s an escape room or an immersive experience, and it appears we weren’t the only ones to ponder this as The Nest has the most abstentions in this year’s TERPECA’s. Yes, there are escape room puzzles […]

Wardrobe for Sale

Wardrobe for Sale by Escaparium in Laval, Canada, QC

During our Escaparium marathon we played Wardrobe for Sale which I had heard good things about. We start the game by being shown down a rather empty hallway with just one item… a fairly mundane wardrobe. We were then invited to inspect this nice, but unremarkable, piece of furniture and […]

The Grudge

The Grudge by 1Way Escape Room in Athens, Greece

Booking a new room on a trip is always a risk, you have no idea what you’re going to get. So I will openly admit that I wasn’t expecting much from The Grudge as we were playing the room in its opening week. We arrived at a rather dilapidated looking […]

Lost and Found

Lost and Found by Kamer 237 in Volkel, Netherlands

Finding a lost suitcase, well that sounds simple, it should be easy… right? But as soon as we entered, we knew that finding this suitcase would be anything but simple….The team had solved the opening “warm-up” puzzles while I was still marveling at the space we had just entered. It […]
