A new exciting adventure with the great master detective Sherlock Holmes lured us to the Escape Room Berlin. Was it going to be just as exciting as the other games we had played so far?
The Escape Room Berlin has moved to a new location in Landsberger Allee and we were excited to see the new rooms and the new game “Sherlock’s Dream”. The Escape Room is located in the basement of the building at Landsberger Allee 117a. It’s not easy to find, only little notes show you the way.
If you ring the bell, the door is opened and then you can enter the new large rooms. The waiting area, with its huge wooden crates and the barrel, is more reminiscent of a scene in a warehouse or an abandoned factory site.
After our mobile phones and bags were stowed in the lockers, we could hardly wait to enter the room. But before that, of course, there was a short briefing and the background story.
We, the world-renowned dream research team, have been asked by Sherlock Holmes to visit and help him. That’s right, even the great master detective needs help from others once in a while.
Sherlock found a treasure during one of his adventures. This was supposed to be cursed, which Holmes, with his rational way of thinking, naturally dismissed as pure madness and superstition. But now, back home, he is plagued by cruel nightmares. They just won’t stop and so he asks us, the dream researchers, to investigate his dream and, if possible, to get it out of his head.
Good that it is possible for us to get into his head and track down the dream there.
Opening the door of the Escape Room not only starts the 60-minute game, but also our stay in Sherlock’s head.
The setting of the game is great, you are taken back to the time of the great detective. But beware, not everything is always as it seems at first glance. The search for clues, riddles, hiding places and the solution to Sherlock’s problem begins, time slips away under your fingers. Teamwork is required and above all talking to each other, sharing the information found, often makes it easier.
I don’t want to reveal any more than that, otherwise the game wouldn’t be any fun. Of our 60 minutes of playing time, there were just under 8 minutes left when we found the solution and the door opened. However, we did not reach the goal without the help of the game leader, because we had the small parts of a solution step in front of our eyes, but did not link them to our brains.
The fourth visit to an Escape Room in Berlin was again an experience for us. It was fun and we noticed that our guessing team is working better and better together and that our view of objects is changing. We will definitely be back!
Go to the Escape Berlin website, select your desired game and click on “Book”. A calendar will appear with the available game times. The game can only be booked online.
The price depends on the number of players and the choice of game. Sherlock’s Dream can be played by 2-8 people. The price is from 19,-€ per person.
It is advisable to be there about 15 minutes before the start of the match. The game starts on time and it is hardly possible to join later if you are late. Even if part of the group is already in the room, a latecomer cannot join.
Bags, mobile phones, cameras, paper, pens, jackets, …. must remain outside. Taking photos in the room is, of course, forbidden – otherwise “secret” information could leak out. As a souvenir, the game leader will take a photo at the end that can be downloaded free of charge with a personal download code.
All games can be played in German or English.
