Fantastic room. Great theme and novel puzzles. Also a distinct lack of padlocks which I think is a plus! . One particular puzzle is one of my favorite I have ever done.

Reviews by escape room review sites

I've played a few games themed as being in someone's mind or dreams, but this one is definitely the most successful at creating a dream-like experience. Instead of finding codes to padlocks, you progress with an increasing feel for the dream-logic of the puzzles.
There's a lot to do and it's perhaps a room where it's easy to get stuck; but the design is good and when you get a feel for the puzzles they're hugely satisfying.
Two games that are highly rated by enthusiasts but felt a little flat to me. Arcade Invasion had the potential for being brilliant but lacked direction and we encountered a real issue with the hinting. Wake up! didn't have quite as much potential but delivered better. Both games are well worth a visit when you're in Amsterdam though.
Questomatica offers two very unique and fun games close to the centre of Amsterdam. Did we enjoy them?
Have you ever tried to rouse a sleeping child who doesn't want to wake up? What about trying to wake them from INSIDE THEIR DREAM? Hope we don't get stuck...
