This is THE game to play even if you don’t like horror (like me). The set is gorgeous, actors brilliant and you will scream and laugh.

The catacombs are located under a real church in Amsterdam. To enter them you don’t just ring the bell, you have to know the right slogan. A very serious looking long-haired man opens the heavy door for us to enter. He gives the impression that he has no great hopes for a successful outcome of our expedition.
Logic Locks' Catacombs is - in its original physical form - a masterpiece of a game, a slice of gothic horror that succeeds on multiple levels as immersive theatre, an escape room and a haunt maze. And of course it takes place in a genuine underground crypt, an instantly memorable location very much enhanced by elaborate decorations and subtle effects.
