Scary escape rooms in Athens: crows in front of the full moon

Six tips to know before participating in Athens’ scary escape rooms:

  1. You can make an online reservation on all the Escape Rooms in the following list.
  2. The price depends on the duration of the game and the number of players participating. Indicatively, it usually ranges between 10 and 30 euros per person. However, all the games on the list are value for money.
  3. Most games can accommodate teams of 2 to 5 people. Nevertheless, some support 1 person and some others up to 7. If you have a special request, it is better to contact the game masters and ask for their help. The best contact option, if available, is the phone.
  4. All games are available in English. However, the same does not apply to all websites, precisely those of Escape Rooms #9, #7, and #5. So, once again, if you are not sure about something, it’s better to contact the game masters directly.
  5. Escape rooms #8, #5, and #1 are operating even after 00:00 at night! If your schedule is busy, you might consider this option as well.
  6. Most games include a live performance and recommend comfortable clothing.
