The number one escape game in Algarve
In 1985, the Barlow’s Home for Children was closed down. Since then, people have
been terrified by the strange atmosphere surrounding the old orphanage.
According to the legend, weird noises and whispers can be heard late at night. Something strange happened in there.
Your task will be to uncover the mysteries hidden behind those walls.
Do you have what it takes?
Suitable for players 14+
(Minors must be accompanied by an adult)
We offer two game modes for your escape game:
- Classic: No jump scares, for those who prefer mystery and suspense.
- Horror: If you love a challenge and horror movies, this is for you. Darker atmosphere and the presence of a live actor at some moments during the game.
An escape room, also called escape game, is a real life action game, in which players solve a series of puzzles and riddles to escape.
Use our booking system to choose the date and time of your game.
Explore, find the clues and solve the puzzles to progress in your adventure.
Uncover the mysteries of the orphanage, escape and celebrate your victory!
Anyone can play an escape room.

Atmosphere was well constructed. The puzzles were fun to complete and some kept you guessing. You can opt for a live actor during your escape or not, depending on your comfort level.
I recommend this game for everyone. Creative and immersive puzzles. The atmosphere is great. If you’re easily scared no problem, go for classic mode ;)
Good fun, love escape room and this one was really good fun. Would definitely recommend this room to anyone.
