Guide to Copenhagen: Mystery Escape

A month ago Guide to Copenhagen received an e-mail. Escape Room, which recently opened at Østerbro, invited us to come and try their concept. After a quick look at their website (which told us that Escape Room is an activity for friends, where you should break out of a room by solving a mystery) we replied with several !!! after our “yes”.

Last week we tried it. The game master, Stine, welcomed us and explained the concept. We put our bags and phones in a locker and were told to solve a mystery. In one hour. In a secret room. Do I need to tell you that our team was excited after the introduction? Oh yes. We couldn’t wait to get locked in to the room and begin the mystery solving!

I don’t want to spoil the experience for anyone, so I’ll keep the mystery we solved (yes, we succeeded with it!) for myself. But I can tell you that it was fun. That you need to think logical and non-logical, that you need to have long discussions and that you probably both will high five and be frustrated several times during the 60 minutes.

Escape Room is the perfect activity for a group of friends, a bachelor party, team building and after work with colleagues. The only disadvantage is that you can only solve the mystery once. Luckily for us at Guide to Copenhagen, Escape Room opens a second mystery in October. See you then!

Aldersrogade 6A, Østerbro

Between 239-379 dkk/person, depending on time of day and number of participants. You should book a room on their website in advance.

Guide to Copenhagen was invited by Escape Room to try the game for free.
