I would not describe it as an overall good experience.
· Absence of scenario and direction.
· The level of riddles was overall good. They did not have continuity among them, very independent puzzles.
· With no intention to spoil the fun, some key objects were just raped up with plastic tapes in order to attach metallic elements to trigger some actions (very poor design). Furthermore, on these objects there were miss-leading tags (written in German). We lost huge amount of time to open a lock although we made the correct combination because the mechanism was jammed (not sharp design here).
· The room was quite small and for not more than 4 people, we were 6 and we barely could move inside without stepping one on the other (better).
I have been in numerous escape rooms, also in different countries and I can say with certainty that this one does not fulfill the standards. We had fun as a group of friends taking part in a co-op activity but nothing more than that. There is certainly a lot of room (67) for improvement here! :)
