ESCAPE ROOM REVIEW – THE QUICK AND DIRTY
Play if… chills go up your spine every time you hear “The Rains of Castamere”
Avoid if… you are clumsy (wildfire is a VERY fickle potion).

Room – Save King’s Landing:
Description (from the company website): The enemy fleet is attacking the city! The only way to save it is to use the wildfire, a potion so powerful it burn and melts everything once it is set on fire. But damned keister Hallyne, the pyromancer, disappeared, so the King’s Hand (Tyrion Lannister) sent you – his most loyal guards – to find the potion in the alchemy lab and save the kingdom!

Note on booking: for most European escape rooms, you book the room by the number of people in your party as a private room. Your overall price per person is cheaper the more people you book for (so, if you book the room for 2 people, it will be more expensive per person than booking the room for 5 or 6). In any event, your room will be just your party and strangers will not be placed in with you.
Staging Area: a nice-sized lobby with some comfy couches. Restrooms are located to the left of the lobby.
Metro Access/Parking: parking is available out front. The location is about a 25-minute walk from the Old Town, or a 5-minute Uber (hint: take Uber).
