Studying abroad in Spain is challenging so you should reward yourself and try out one of the best escape rooms in Madrid. An escape room is an interactive team game played in a room where the objective is usually to escape the room in a restricted amount of time. There are many different themes, missions, and types of activities. They usually last around an hour but your party should arrive early to hear the rules and tips. Most escape rooms in Madrid recommend coming with 2-6 (maximum) people. While larger reservations can be made, everyone won’t be able to play at the same time.
