  1. Escape Rooms – Best Escape Rooms Mallorca

Something for the teens? Escape rooms are a perfect day away from the sun or to keep the kids entertained if the weather is pants. There are three fully-themed Escape Rooms offering a unique and fun experience for you and the kids.

You can either travel to the ancient pyramids of Egypt, and try to solve the Mystery of the Sceptre  of Anubis, or go back to Medieval times to the templar order of Sir Robert Geremus to fight against the troops of the Pope and restore order. You can even enter a Hacker’s apartment to help Interpol and solve all his traps (although this one, not recommended to newbies!)

Whichever room you choose, there are lots of surprises along the way aside from solving mysteries and puzzles, so you’ll need to work together to escape successfully.  Beating the clock takes teamwork, observation, and intuition. This is a super fun game to enjoy with the family, an experience to remember for sure.

The Escape Rooms are suitable for adults and teens from 14 years and above, however children from 8+ can play together with their parents.
