  • ⭐️ 9.3/10
  • 🌡 Medium
  • ⏳ 90 Minutes
  • 👥 2 – 5 Person

I was not prepared for this room! Of course it should have rung a bell for me that the title 11S is about 911. September 11, 2001, the date of the attack on the Twin Towers in New York. Whether this is a suitable topic for an escape room is controversial. We are of the opinion that Openmind has researched this carefully and is treating the tragic event very respectfully. Contemporary witnesses were interviewed and a few original objects were even brought to Barcelona. The aim of this experience is to remember the events of that time, to pay homage to the heroes, and to commemorate the numerous victims who should never be forgotten.

For 11S you should definitely plan more than the pure 90 minutes of playing time! In the debriefing, for which this provider takes an extraordinary amount of time, you will learn many very interesting stories, curiosities and facts about this fateful day in New York’s history. Stories of heroes, a janitor and firefighters who saved hundreds of people from death by fire.

About the game: You experience the event from the first person perspective. The set builders and sound engineers made every effort to create a realistic environment. The scenario is very immersive and action-packed, and you should wear comfortable clothing. You must become heroes yourself! Climb, crawl, improvise. The tasks are diverse, fit the topic and are therefore often physical in nature. There are various tools that can help you. Good teamwork is required! Only together can you achieve your goals. The group shouldn’t be too big! Ideally only 2-3 players.
