What people are saying about Frankfurt

Ich habe schon mehrere Outdoor-Escape-Games gespielt. Outdoor-Escape-Games sind natürlich immer was anderes als Escape Rooms, aber hier fand ich die Umsetzung sehr gelungen. Es geht um mehrere kleine Krimis. Auch für unsere erfahrene Gruppe schön herausfordernd! Dass ein solches Escape Game kein Sightseeing beinhaltet müsste auch jedem klar sein.

You learn a lot about the well-known and lesser-known places and have a pleasant physical strain.

Muy divertida forma de aprender sobre una ciudad, los acertijos son relativamente sencillos

It was a great way to explore parts of the city we had already seen.

Wir haben das Spiel zufällig entdeckt und waren echt begeistert.
