Athens, Greece: Escape Room Recommendations

Latest update: January 5, 2021

Athens is known for a pronounced style of escape rooms, that I can only describe as epic… but not in the high-budget blockbuster sense. Rather, the Athens escape rooms combined a specific set of traits to deliver exciting, memorable adventures.

We identified 6 traits that made the escape rooms in Athens stand out: length, scale, storytelling, mode setting, safety, and water. You can read more about how these qualities impact the Athens market in our Field Report.

More Than 90-Minute PlayTime


If you’re booking an escape room trip to Athens, I recommend a group of 4 people.

Embrace an atypical schedule for a few days. Some of these games are long, which means you won’t be fitting tons of escape rooms into each day, and you’ll have less flexibility in the scheduling puzzle. Also, many of the companies only operate on evenings and weekends, but they offer bookings that start as late as midnight.

Accept that horror games have shaped this market and challenge yourself to play them, even if they aren’t usually your preference. Just make sure one of your teammates is bold enough to be the teammate who always goes first into the unknown.
