Had a brilliant experience at Sherlocked. Me and my friends played the escaperoom named "The Vault". You can play it in Dutch or in English! I'm not gonna spoil the escape room but I loved it. The workers at Sherlocked are really into their roll,...More

Did The Vault yesterday with a group of 5, what an experience! Had done The Architect previously so I had high expectations, which The Vault went over and beyond. I can't say too much about it as a lot of fun comes from unexpected action...More

I can't rave enough about this experience. This is a real, real heist experience (The Vault). For me, that's a boy's dream come true which is great because this kind of heist doesn't make you go to jail. But definitely, believe the hype -this is...More

Awesome break-in! Perfect story and these vaults make it worth a visit. We went with 5 friends in total and finished in time with only 10 seconds left. Would definetly recommend this 'escaperoom' above others. Best I've done so far!

I am a fan of escape rooms so I've passed a lot of them. So I know what I'm speaking about. The Architect escape room by Sherlocked is the one of the best I've ever visited. The killer feature of the room is really unusual,...More

The Vault is an experience you'll never forget. The design of the concept is very good and every aspect of the experience is carefully designed. Starting with the emails and messages you receive before actually starting the escape room, ending with great excitement up till...More

We played The Vault about two years ago, which is one of the best escape rooms i’ve ever played. Yesterday we played The Architect, a somewhat ‘older’ escape room. It has so much charm, decor is nice and a good balance between all kinds of...More

Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the
Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its
saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to
view some of the city’s most picturesque canals,
historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples
of traditional local architecture – not to mention
Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist
temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some

I thought it would be a blast for 7 people but the website says 6 is the maximum. You can probably split into two groups and perhaps to do two rooms at the same time. According to their website the prices for The Architect... More

In all honesty, I think it would be challenging, and I would not recommend it for a person in a wheelchair. There are a few aspects that I’m specifically thinking of that would not be suitable, but I’m not sure whether the... More
