This escape room fantasizes that Orwell ended up stealing the construction plans from Gaudí in order to avoid this monument to be completed. And there is where the game begins with the goal to rescue those plans.
The space is quite dark, which on the one hand helps to create the atmosphere of mystery, but also adds difficulty to the game.
The amount and diversity of enigmas and jigsaw puzzles is one of the elements to be highlighted, along with a good atmosphere. It is a very complete escape room since you will find padlocks, visual games, physical dexterity and manual games.
Despite not being very linear, most puzzles in Barcelocked are suitable for all players, but you will need some help to solve some of the enigmas if you are a beginner.

If you manage to escape from Barcelocked you can complete your plan as follows:
Carrer de Colomines 2, Barcelona
One of the first Bacoa that opened in the city offering signature hamburgers with excellent meat. The place is very small so you’d better buy the hamburgers to go. We highly recommend the hamburger of the month and also the chips with skin on.
Portal de l’Àngel 27, Barcelona
One of the best orxata / horchata (tiger nut milk) shop and ice-cream parlor in town where you can find during the whole summer season tiger nut milk with sugar or sugarless, handmade ice-creams and excellent nougats and marzipan during the Christmas holidays.
Plaça de l’Àngel 12, Barcelona
One of the best cake shops in the city with excellent pastries, confectionery and cakes made in a very traditional way. A classic one in the old town, with excellent value for money. They also serve cold sandwiches and a variety of chocolates, Aragon fruits or sugar coated French fruit jellies.
