Best Escape Rooms in Athens: Paradox Project

Five tips to know before participating in an Athens escape room:

  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 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. However, 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 # 6 and # 5. So, once again, if you are unsure about something, it’s better to contact the game masters directly.
  5. Escape rooms #9, #7, #5, #4, #3, #2, and #1 operate even after midnight! If your schedule is busy, you might consider this option as well.

The “Creepy Store”, New Jersey, 1984.

Urban legend or truth that this store is haunted?

The only way to solve the mystery is by being at the right place, the right time: at the Creepy Store, where answers to the inexplicable phenomena that haunt people’s lives are hidden…

Soon you will face dead children’s spirits who once went through the store doors.
