You have one hour before the bomb explodes. You have to deactivate it. How? Who knows. You’ve just entered the Sherlock Holmes’ 221B Baker Street apartment, and it’s just about to burst. You find a codex here, letters letter, there are keys and locks. Suddenly, you insert a key in a space that is mostly hidden. It opens to another room, and you discover the bomb.

This is only one of many challenges of Enigma Rooms, the first place featuring escape rooms in Mexico: thematic rooms from which you have to escape in less than 60 minutes. It’s a bit like living the adrenaline of a videogame or a movie, but in real life.

All the rooms must be solved in teams, to which two or five people can enter, and ther are no instructions nor steps to follow in order to solve the game. So, you and your friends can escape a serial killer that has you kidnapped; obtain, like secret agents, the best information in order to detain a nuclear attack in a Cold War enemy bunker; or deactivate a bomb in the Sherlock Holmes’ apartment (the most difficult room, according to creators).

Black light, physical phenomenon, codices, secret rooms, mathematical forums and chains: the keys to an escape are truly ingenious. In fact, the owners, Víctor Suárez and Gonzalo Arozarena took more than four months to develop the puzzles. 

The result is an incredible and super fun experience, very unique to the city. Escaping will not be easy. Can you do it?
