Le Prince

  • ⭐️ 9.5/10
  • 🌡 Difficult
  • ⏳ 90 Minutes
  • 👥 2 – 6 Person

A new room by the makers of Erzebeth, which has been one of the top rooms in Belgium for many years, can only lead to high expectations. This room managed to find a place in the Terpeca Top Rooms last year and I can only say that it was really well desserved.

The first word that comes to my mind to describe this room is beautiful. Full of little details and Easter eggs, the latter being something that has become a tradition in the Dutch speaking region.

I particularly liked that it is an escape room in the fullest meaning of the word, in line also with the type of high quality rooms that we find in said region. Many of the Terpeca rooms, reflecting the development of the industry, have moved towards the experience, so it is great to find this modern and at the same time classic escape rooms, where the riddles represent the red thread in the room.

Riddles, which by the way are nicely connected to the story in a beautiful setting. On top of that the story is a highly original one. We all have played uncountable temples (with the mandatory diary), haunted houses, prisons and spaceships, so it is very refreshing to find an original topic, that to my knowledge does not exist anywhere else. I was so fascinated by it, that I googled afterwards the real story and I was surprised to see how well implemented it was in the room and also how interesting is the story, as what happened is a real life unsolved mystery.

In short, this is a not to be missed room when visiting Belgium.
