Crime Scene in Agia Paraskevi, a suburb of Athens, offers four escape games. The two child-suited criminal cases “File: Undercover” and “File: Killing Nikolaou”, as well as “Heresy” and its bad weather suitable version “Benedicta” (corresponds quasi Heresy without the outdoor part) named after the amiable person, who plays an important role in Heresy.

Heresy plays, as said before, indoor and outdoor. It is advisable to play this room at dusk or in the evening, even if it makes the research a bit more difficult, in order to really enjoy the really good atmosphere at the Blackmoore Family Cemetery with its chapel.

Rest assured that the darkness won’t be your biggest problem, because not everyone likes it, let’s be honest, that someone disturbs the rest of the dead there to search for the elixir of eternity.

We were the first team to play Heresy in English. The operator was a bit nervous if everything would work. To his reassurance, everything ran very smoothly and there were no language problems. The scenery with the cemetery and the chapel is realistic. There is a lot of emphasis on the theatrical elements and the interaction with the actors, who really do their job extremely well (always in their roles). I wouldn’t put Heresy in the horror drawer right now. Rather, it is a thrilling psycho thriller, which alternately provides fun and heart pounding by its original plot and creepy atmosphere.

The puzzles, fitting to the theme and setting, were of varying degrees of difficulty but mostly logical and easy to solve. If it really gets tough, you will be helped charmingly. Thanks to the team and the fantastic actors. We had a great time!
