With good intentions, we looked for a traditional Serbian restaurant near Crowbar Escape before our last game of the day startet and we found it: We had pizza and risotto for dinner. Strengthened, we finally set off with great anticipation, because all the escape room providers we had visited so far said that Pirates of Crowbar is the best room in Belgrade and they were right.
We were warmly welcomed by the game master in the basement of an apartment block and we could suddenly start playing straight away. We were escorted into a long hallway and locked in. At the end of the corridor we could look through the bars of the door into a pirate chamber and had to think creatively about how we could gain access to the keys and get into the chamber. After solving the puzzles, the path led us to the secret cabin of the infamous pirate, where we were supposed to find the legendary treasure using fragments of a antique map.
The room particularly surprised us with its high density of puzzles. We had to complete many different tasks, search thoroughly and combine them cleverly. Thanks to the logical structure and the easy to challenging different tasks of puzzles, the flow of the game remained at a consistently high and exciting level. There was definitely no boredom in this immersive escape room. Pirates shouldn’t be missed the next time you visit Belgrade and you can be excited for the second room creation, which should be playable from 2024.
