  • We were a mixed group of experienced players and absolute novices. I do not recommend it to anyone who has made some escaperooms, the attention is very mediocre and unwilling, the atmosphere very basic and nothing to do with other rooms that are on the market today. As for the puzzles were monotonous where 85% were padlocks. If it's your first escape room you might like it if you already have experience this room has nothing interesting to offer. Experience: The experience started badly, We arrived 15 minutes before the hour and the guy who greeted us said we should wait outside (in the cold) until 5 minutes to go. We did, but when no one came back, no one took care of us, the common room was full and no one came to meet us. I come to ask and the games masters look at each other as trying to decide who would take care of us. After several minutes of confusion, a boy comes to ask us what we had already said: How many of us we were and what room we were going to do. He starts talking to us and told the story of the room but he becomes out of focus and starts to laugh without being able to finish what he says, in the end the story ends in an unwanted matthew. By the end of the game, the game masters were in a hurry to close and they were practically kicking us out. What is understood but if we had been taken care of at the time of booking instead of ignoring us we would not have left so late. In general the feeling is that those who work there do not enjoy what they do and it shows. The room: The room (the mystery of quixote) is small and as we move forward there is nothing memorable that surprises. Without saying much, the truth is that it is the most basic that there can be, with a decoration not very worked, and puzzles where most are keys and padlocks. In general for the gameplay it seems to me that the type of puzzles can frustrate a group, do not allow more than two groups to be doing something simultaneously. And the truth is the first escape room that the more I advance the more boring becomes, since the most interesting you see at the beginning. Overall, it is very basic everything, and very careless; If you have no experience in escape rooms you can go and you will surely like it, but if you already have more than 5 experiences better avoid it at all costs.

  • After touring several escape rooms and being very excited about this room (as advertised very technological and without padlocks) we have left with a very bad taste of mouth. The setting is very good and the fact that it does not have padlocks makes the room much more dynamic. However, the experience with the game master, Lere, has not been the most appropriate. It wasn't the first time we went to The Rombo Code (we already made the escape from Casanova) and on the previous occasion the experience was very good. In this case the game master gave us clues that did not correspond to the time of the game in which we were. Reiterating on several occasions the same clue for a test that we repeated to him that we had already done. On one of the occasions (after wasting a lot of time for the latter) the track was literally 'until you figure it out'. At this point we had the whole relationship of the test but we didn't match the combination as it was a test of skill and not logic (I won't reveal any more so as not to gut part of the game to future players). In general the feeling was quite abandoned by the game master. It's a shame, but we won't be back.
