Top 20 Escape Rooms in Athens in 2023: newspapers, glasses, myopic glasses, pen

Five must-know tips before participating in Athens’ top escape rooms with riddles:

  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 15 and 30 euros per person. However, all the games on the list are value-for-money choices.
  3. Most games can accommodate teams of 2 to 5 persons. Nevertheless, some support 1 person and some others up to 7. If you have a special request, I highly recommend you 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, all websites aren’t, so Google Translate is your friend. Once again, if you are not sure about something, it’s better to contact the game masters directly.
  5. Escape rooms #16, #14, #12, #8, #7, #6, #4, #3, and #1 operate even after midnight – or start their last game at 23:30! If your schedule is busy, consider this option as well.
