One of the worst games I played with illogical puzzles and no flow between puzzles to advance. The fractured design of the room seems to purely be for a low success rate which the owner of the game in Amsterdam (where I played this) proudly gloated about as a badge of honour. With 50+ games under our belt at the time we played we were successful escapists but there was no enjoyment and only frustration. It is a shame as the game could be good with more logic and a structure.

A really good room with some interesting puzzles. Some inventive ways of completing some challenges however the theming was a little obscure.

Starting off in a room that resembles something from prison break, moving into a room that resembles a military base base / nuclear bunker, into a vault that is something out of Entrapment. A very eclectic mix of themes but overall was a really fun game to play. 

Not an awful lot of content but interesting none the least.

Some very ingenious puzzles here which will require all your wits to solve, and clever use of different technology. For me I found the decor a little sparse and the story a bit lacking, so immersion wasn’t as good as some other rooms.

If you’re a big fan of the Mission: Impossible films, however, you’ll definitely enjoy this l

There's some potentially good ideas going on here but they pull a couple of things that should never be done in an escape room IMHO, couple that with a bad tech fail and it was not a good experience.

The puzzles are not the worst, but as a linear game there is no line to follow between the puzzles and there is a ton of red Heerings, this did make for a bad experience.

But what really substracts from this experience is to complete lack of qualified/decicated hosting, got clues to a puzzle we where not yet at, came in and congratulated us for completing it room when the time was up even though we had been done for some time(we just didn't realise this)

If the hosting is the same for the rest of their games then keep away from this place.
