As a result of the health measures adopted due to COVID-19, it is advisable to confirm with each of the establishments whether they are open and which activities are programmed.


Also known as escape games or locked room adventures, escape rooms have taken the world by storm. The premise is simple: you and a small group of friends (usually between 3 and 5 people) have 60 minutes to escape a locked room by solving a series of puzzles and cyphers. All you need for the challenge is to get your brain in gear and choose your teammates wisely!
Here are some of the best escape rooms in Madrid to pique your interest:

YOUR TIME STARTS... NOW!

With two separate venues, it offers a total of five missions, including: the Bunker, where you have an hour to stop World War 3 from breaking out, and the Zombie Laboratory where you form part of a group of scientists desperate to quash a zombie threat in less than 60 minutes (the ideal option for more expert players).

Calle Amparo, 32 (Arganzuela District) . Metro: La Latina (L5)

All missions can be played in competitive mode.
