Escape Houdini by Questeros has a historical base. In one of his illusionist demonstrations, Harry Houdini escaped from the fortress of St. Peter and St. Paul in St. Petersburg.
Angry about that, the prison chief designed a complicated system of traps to prevent this from happening again. Once your team enters the fearsome Петропавловская крепость you will be locked forever.
At first the decoration of this room caught us by surprise, but as the story went on we could just say wow! The whole plot is very logical and the immersion is total.
Both the type of enigmas and the various effects that accompany the game contribute to your full immersion into the story. In order to break from prison you will need to know the secrets and tricks that characterized the famous magician. Do invoke the spirit of Houdini because you will need it.
The game is very linear. Only at some point we had to ask for help because we could not think what to do but in general it flowed quite well.
By the way, the game master of Escape Houdini was very nice from the beginning to the end and was aware of our game the whole time. If at the end of the game you book another one of their rooms you can get some discounts. That’s an element to keep in mind when you’re as addicted as we are in the world of escape rooms.
- Decoration and immersion.

- In some places we wouldn’t have know what to do without help.

Ochiai is one of our favorite cake shops since it combines the traditional Catalan sweets with Oriental flavors. Their specialty are the croissants. Apart from the most classic ones every month there’s an innovative and delicious croissant.
The mochis are also very good and the cakes are very delicate. Those that are made of matcha are especially good. Can you tell that we are their fans?
