This is a review of the Escape Room “Kenos” offered by Kenos Escape Room in Les Fonts, Spain.
  • ⭐️ 8.8/10
  • 🌡 Difficult
  • ⏳ 90 Minutes
  • 👥 2 – 6 Person

The Kenos Escape Room is located in Les Fonts, and can be reached by taking the S1 (direction Terrassa), which runs several times an hour from Barcelona’s Pl. Catalunya. The journey time is about 40 minutes, and the provider is within walking distance (5 minutes) of the station.

Kenos was nominated for Best Horror Experience at this year’s Escape Room Awards, but is unfortunately only playable in Spanish at the moment. However, as far as I know, an English-language version is already being worked on. I played the room with two (bravely-anxious) locals who helped me translate some of the text, which of course always takes some time. The fact that we used up the full 90 minutes was mainly due to the fact that there was quite a lot to do, and we also overlooked obvious things once in a while, which can happen in such a sprawling game with several settings – especially if someone obviously doesn’t like strangers snooping around.

Kenos is Scary (Scarefactor 7!) and there is also physical contact and not too scarce. Never aggressively, though, but more in a funny way. There was a lot of laughter (at least from the people who were not affected). In general, Kenos has a lot of what makes a good horror room from my point of view. An immediate start, a red thread, a suitable setting, proper lighting (not too dark if necessary) and sound, numerous jumpscares and well-timed acting, tests of courage, and even good puzzles are not neglected.
