About

The Laboratory

“My great-grandmother used to be assistant to a scientist who worked with animals and odd machinery. He was on the verge of a discovery that would change the world… I have inherited the key to the lab from her. It was left with her under strange circumstances by the scientist. Unfortunately, I also seem to have inherited harassment from a rather unpleasant corporation, so I have decided that it is time to revisit the old laboratory. ​I need some help! Someone needs to find out what went on in there…” — read more

Play this real life Escape Room via live video. Join a Zoom meeting with your family or friends across the globe, and together you can guide your gamemaster around our lab. Help him to find the scientist’s last secret. He certainly can’t do it on his own! You can see exactly what he sees as he wanders around the room. Direct him to open that, pick this up, use that over there.

Great room!!!! Probably even better live.

Great host from the start. Tough puzzles with fun twists. Probably even better live...several 'physical' clues...be sure to 'case' the room first before starting. It's easy to make it harder than it needs to be!!!

We had the best time. Thank you, David!

We played The Laboratory ONLINE. The room was beautiful and so well put together. Not a dull moment was had. What a great way to get together across the miles on a Zoom call. Thank you so much.

Great host - challenging puzzles!

Would definitely recommend - was a good challenge, and the host (David) was very friendly (and patient!)

This was such a great time! I have never done an escape room before, let alone a virtual one. This did not disappoint and made for a really fun virtual bachelorette night. David was a great host and very patient with us.

David was a great host and very patient with us. We will definitely recommend to others. My sister has already agreed with some of her other friends to do this for a game night and I am hoping to the same with my friends in the future. Thank you for everything!

Fun, challenging, and a great adaptation of in-person experience

I was surprised by how fun an escape room can be with an online setup -- I highly recommend!

Great fun and experience online for a team or family.

Really enjoyed the room, David was a great host.

Brilliant online escape room

Our host, David, was really patient and complied with our every request! If you needed the odd clue he gave suggestions but without feeling like you were being spoon fed. Great way to spend time with family and friends!

Really Fun & Great Price!

We really enjoyed playing The Laboratory - 2 adults and 1 preteen (family friendly and appropriate difficulty). The puzzles were challenging but doable. Thanks to the host who offered just the right amount of assistance toward the end, so we were successful! We would definitely do this again!

overal nice and entertaining for 1h of fun

Played some online escape rooms in Belgium and Holland allready, this one was the most challenging. Nice job!

Jun 2020
If you've already played some games in lockdown, this is the next level. Really good.

We've played several games in lockdown and this is by far the best we've done. The limitations of most online games aren't there when you've got a host, who was ace.

Yes, it's more expensive than the downloadable ones, but IT IS WORTH IT.

The best escape room we’ve done in lockdown

As close to the real thing as we’ve got since lockdown! Thank you so much!

Jun 2020
Excellent experience - great host and clever puzzles

The best online game we've played as a group. Very immersive, brilliant host, and clever inventory system. Puzzles quite tricky, but well designed and rewarding. Highly recommended.

Jun 2020
Great game, thank you.

Really enjoyed this. Good level of difficulty and really fun.

Jun 2020
Good game, fun puzzles

We really enjoyed playing the virtual laboratory, the puzzles are varied and fun and despite a slow start once we got going we had a great time and managed to solve the room. I would recommend this to anyone looking for something different to do in lockdown, or escape enthusiasts like us needing to scratch an itch whilst we can't play in real life!

An enjoyable night in the Algarve!

Really enjoyed this escape room, it worked well as an avatar-led experience and the puzzles certainly made you think. Once you got the feel of the room and what was in it then it was a good case of working it all out. The host, David, was funny and kept things moving smoothly without offering too many clues or hints. Really recommended.

Fun time

Had a fun time - cool puzzles & great host! 10/10 recommend!

Lots of fun! It was exciting to "travel" to Portugal to play! Thank you!

Definitely recommend!

Jun 2020
Good fun. Great value. Probably a little better in person, but aren't they all

Would recommend for anyone wanting to do an online escape room. The intro and ending felt a little rushed to me, but maybe that was a technical problem on my end. Overall I had a lot of fun playing. The host was friendly and did what we asked.

Great game!

Great experience! the game is set in a perfect lab and the puzzles are quite clever to challenge people with different skills! Thanks to David for being a great GM and looking forward to trying the next coming game Atlantis!

Great fun to play

The old lab is full of weird and wonderful surprises. Well thought-out theme with science themed but doable puzzles. Fun gamemaster.

When you can’t go by yourself...

We always wanted to go and play Laboratory but the distance was hard for us.
Turning it virtual was the perfect opportunity to play such a fun game. Thanks to the GM David we had a great time!

May 2020
Amazing experience in Algarve!

We have played the Laboratory and it was our first introduction to this new style of games. At first we thought, we´re not going to make it, but after 5 minutes everything came with logic and the game is very fluid, taking you to the next clues and so on. Nevertheless it is not an easy game, it is a very smart game and David played a very good game master, being very calm and helpful! Absolutely loved this experience and defintely recommend it!

Great Game and Excellent Host!

I have played The Laboratory and had a great time. The Host is really nice and the game is really challenging.

May 2020
Lots of fun!

The Laboratory video escape room was lots of fun! Some puzzles were a challenge but not impossible. I was able to play with family overseas, which is a huge bonus to doing a game like this. I would definitely play like this again.

May 2020
Awesome game!!

Wasn't looking forward to playing online but it was brilliant, the host was amazing, I never felt like I was helped or guided but clearly I was, highly recommended!!!

Amazing Game

This game was amazing and I highly recommend it! great puzzles, great GM, and amazing decor, it is absolutely beautiful. Suitable for the whole family it will be an hour you won't forget.
Hope you have more games soon :)

Clever game

Real fun game, with very good and clever puzzles.
It made us think a lot, but we never gave up, and David (GM) kept his role as the character very well played out.
Totally recommend.

A good fun room with some clever puzzles

Some really fun puzzles in this room. We played as a team with two experienced escape room players (both online and offline) and two very new players (their second ever room) and everyone got a chance to work out things and solve puzzles. Good host who lets you figure it out for yourself and doesn't jump in.

Escape One Algarve: The Laboratory (Play at Home)
Nothing is ever going to be quite the same as playing a physical escape room in person, but the virtual version of The Laboratory came close, and was everything I could ask for in a game: good theming, clever puzzles, and a great host. I’m only sad that I won’t get to play it in person. — read the full review from Review The Room

Escape One Algarve: Atlantis (Play at Home)
I often see requests for games that are “family-friendly,” and I wholeheartedly recommend Atlantis! In fact, I would recommend it even if your family doesn’t contain any children. — read the full review from Review The Room

Escape One Algarve: Final Call (Play at Home)
I never would have thought that zombies and bridal boutiques go hand in hand, but apparently they do. If you can’t get to Portugal to play Final Call in person, then I strongly suggest you consider playing this remote option – you won’t be disappointed! — read the full review from Review The Room

Escape One Algarve - Remote Escape Rooms
The flow of the game was great and puzzles were all reasonable to the story. The puzzles were not really difficult but that's probably because we bought a strong team with us (#Escapeaddicts - around 1600 escape games played) . The set design was quite immersive for a remote escape room. — read the full review from ESCAPETHEROOMers
