What is an Escape Room Barcelona and how it works?

Welcome! Room of Riddles - Room Escape Barcelona - the first & number one real-life escape game in Barcelona. We started in the beginning of 2014 with our first branch in Amsterdam as a hobby that got out of hand and became a big success. 


Room of Riddles is a real-life room escape game, originating from computer games. One of the first games with a similar concept that we know of is Myst, a game released in 1993 in which you find yourself on an island, with no clear goal what to do. By exploring the island, you find several clues that form a storyline and make the plot and purpose of the game clear.

Later a new concept with similar game mechanics, the online escape room games, became a hit. Like in Myst, you are put in an unfamiliar environment and have to find your way out, but this time in a single room where the door is locked. This evolved in a version where a crucial new dimension was added: time pressure.

The first real life version of the digital escape room games is Original Piece, founded by Silicon Valley computer programmers in 2006. Over the years, real-life escape rooms became popular attractions in places like Hong Kong, Japan and Budapest, yet more are opening up in Western Europe. 

We came across the concept on our journeys abroad and enjoyed it so much, we wanted to offer a similar experience in Amsterdam. We opened up in Amsterdam where we are leading the top charts of TripAdvisor (4 months on #1 of Amsterdam in 2014). We soon opened Antwerp which quickly rose to a #2 TripAdvisor position, followed by the first House of Riddles (that's right, a house). And now we're here to rock Barcelona!


The actual escape game is maximum 60 minutes long. Before the game we need to brief your team, which will take approximately 15 minutes. Afterwards, we invite you and your team for a drink which is included in the price, so in the end the entire experience will take 1,5 hours. 


Room of Riddles escape the room can be played by any adult and children from 10 years and up are more than welcome, as long as they are in a team with an adult.
