Very fun! Exciting game, perfect for small groups. Would not recommend more than 3 persons in the room. Unfortunately only cash payment available.

This was the first time either if us had done a room escape before, and we definitely weren't disappointed. The clues were challenging but not to the point of being impossible which made it achievable. So much fun. Can't wait to do it again!

Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal
Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night
and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights,
shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of
people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive
Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of
the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned
restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening
