The first thing that surprised us in Escape Albacete is that is located inside of a video shop. Yes, they still exist!
Once inside we find the home – laboratory of Doctor Smith, a quite shabby room. There we have to find a virus that we believe that has been stolen.
The plot, although it’s not innovative, made sense when completing the multiple tasks and that’s something we appreciate.
The enigmas are not bad and they wittily use basic technology but the game doesn’t flow because almost all the locks are the same! And there are quite a few so you’ll have to try each code found in aaaaaaall of them in order to pass to the next level. This can cause frustration.
The day we went there the game master was not great. He came late, one lock was opened with a code that was not the right one and he asked us to ignore what we found there until later. In the end he didn’t take the usual picture.
In Albacete, by the way, you can eat wonderfully but in Escape Albacete we missed a bit of cooking and some seasoning. It’s an interesting and risky proposal but maybe they need that more rooms open in the city and that the competition increases.
We went there two adults with two children (10 and 14 years old) and not only we came through, they had a blast! So I wouldn’t discard it for beginners. Children can play if they go with adults.
- A brave bet in the world of escape rooms in Albacete.
- Too many identical locks.
If you manage to escape from Escape Albacete you can complete your plan as follows:
Callejón de San José 6, Albacete
Just a few meters away from the room we find a quiet place to have an afternoon snack with a wide selection of classic and modern cakes.
Calle Tejares 20, Albacete
Only 10 minutes away you can find La Teja, a great place and very well located in order to have some beers. Tapas come as a courtesy with every drink and are nice and plentiful.
