How many times are you watching a movie and you shout to the characters: “No, idiot!! You are doing it wrong!!” or “C’mon, time is running out! I know the solution but you don’t”. Face it, everybody has wanted to be the protagonist, save the world from zombies or solve the murder (not always the guilty is the butler). And in Madrid, it is possible in the escape games. Pure adrenaline just for brave people.
Without instructions, just your minds, ingenuity and speed for resolving enigmas, clues, etc. These are the rooms in Madrid to live your own movie:
Fox in a box
This live escape game is situated in the downtown of the city. Perfect for groups of 2 to 5 people. There are two game options: save the world from zombies by finding the cure in an underground laboratory or act like a secret agent into a bunker in the III World War who must stop a nuclear catastrophe. Just 60 minutes to solve the puzzles, get the keys and work like a team to find the way out.

The X door
Up to 6 players must work hard to escape a strange room. 60 minutes and two levels: in the first one there is a mystery that will transport you into a Agatha Christie’s novel or similar (perfect if you have never played before). The second one is not open at the moment but we can tell you that if you liked ‘Prison Break’, you will love it. Quickly: book your experience!

Here they propose to use the brain as never before. There is a mission and your team must work for leaving the room in less than 66 minutes. It is very complicated but we know that our readers are really clever. There are three games but one is called “El marchante de arte” (The Art Merchant), where everything happens at the 30’s and several masterpieces of Spanish heritage have disappeared. We love it! Also, there is the mode “combat” in which two teams compete in two different rooms to solve the same mission. Ah! The missions can be in English too. Do you want to compete?

One walkie-talkie for receiving instructions and…nothing else. Once again, your minds are the key to find the way out. An old building with two mysteries: The Experiment N.5 and Passage 9th. And no, we will not disclose any more. Each clue is like gold. But the fun is guranteed.
