The review of this room could be called a trip to where all began. A dark secret was Mad Mansion’s first room and given the success this company has achieved in the TERPECA probably everyone has heard about it by now. This room was apparently the very first room in Bilbao and among the first rooms of Spain, so it is obviously not one of the blockbusters produced in more recent years by this company.

The room is a classic room, and maybe not so surprising if you compare it to any good room nowadays, but you have to consider when it was opened. Nevertheless, it is a room, that has aged well, and that is very enjoyable with nice riddles and in general a solid experience. A very good value for the price.

This first room of the company is inspired by the classic games “Maniac Mansion” and “Day of the tentacle”, and I am pretty sure that the name of the company is equally inspired by the mentioned game.

The room was planned to close last year, I know it stayed open longer than planned, but I believe by now it has definitely closed its doors. But don’t worry, apparently a follow up is on the making. In any case, we are glad we had the chance to play this piece of escape room history.
