  • 🌡 Difficult
  • ⏳ 80 Minutes
  • 👥 2 – 6 Person

This escape room is constantly mentioned when people ask about recommendations to play in Santander. And the main reason is that the set is impressively made, which is one of the stronger points of this room. It really brings to life a Western railway station.

Being among the first rooms we played we experienced the already mentioned high puzzle density typical of Northern rooms and we could not make it in time and only managed to complete the mission with some minutes over the clock. The room is quite spacious and there is a lot to cover. We played with 4 and we never felt that there was not enough to do, on the contrary. I felt on the other hand that there were a few moments, in which given the large space and multiple tasks at hand a little bit of a red thread was missing. Having to work on many different “building sites” at the same time was challenging, also in view of our freshly assembled team. I can imagine a more oiled team would deal better with the multiple tasks.

If I had to describe the room in a few words I would say that it is a rather classical room with a clear focus on the puzzles and little in the narrative and/or experience, but wrapped in a clearly very detailed and fantastic set, giving a nice sense of exploration, which makes this room without any doubt one of the best in the Cantabria region.
