Breaking out of Illuminati Escape, Berlin

by - February 16, 2020

At Illuminati Escape you try and stop the illuminati from taking over the world. What's interesting is that all the three rooms here are part of a single story and they help you to ultimately stop the Illuminati from getting their hands on a working quantum computer. The rooms are setup in Nevada, Caribbean, Omsk and Macau, and you'll be taken by a virtual chopper to these places to solve the mysteries here.  

Rooms in Illuminati Escape

  1. Jackpot
  2. Alien Grill
  3. Cyber Attack


Review of Cyber Attack

We started in a small & old computer shop in Omsk, Russia but little did we know what lied behind those hidden doors. We had a clipboard with a tiny screen attached to the top of it, the latter being the clue delivery system.

The puzzles in the computer shop were standard and we didn't take a lot of time in cracking them and proceed to the real deal. The second room, which looked like it was from the movie Tron, had the quantum computer in the center. You have to see it to believe it. It looked breathtaking!

We had to do multiple non-linear puzzles to stop the quantum computer and save the world. There were both analog and digital puzzles which can keep everyone in a big team busy. And even though it got a little tight at the end, we did manage to escape well in advance.

Review of Jackpot

This is a beautiful room with an entrance that feels very well designed. You get into a casino in Macau and have to recover the plan for a quantum computer.

Just like the other rooms in Illuminate Escape, this escape room is also a mix of linear & non-linear puzzles. The difficulty is suitable for beginners but experienced players will still feel some challenge.

Review of Alien Grill

After Omsk & Macau, we were in the desert in Nevada. We entered via the backdoor entrance of an abandoned diner, and boy was it very well decorated! This is the place where the inventor of the quantum computer disappeared and it felt so real.

The game was a mix of linear and non-linear puzzles and kept us thoroughly occupied. We had to search the rusty-looking room for clues and it felt pretty convincing and immersive to find hidden clues in the room. This room felt entirely different from the other two rooms in a very natural way and it's fascinating and unique how they've linked all these unique experiences with one storyline.


The over-arching story came to an end after this room. We were told there is a fourth room coming soon and we are eagerly waiting for that.

In Summary

We recommend this room without thinking for a second and as we've mentioned earlier this is one of the unique locations where the rooms are connected by a storyline. And when the game creators have taken such effort, we can't but carry a deep appreciation for providing us with the experience.

We had a hearty talk with the wiser duo - Christian & Margret and expressed our exact thoughts on the subject. On the whole, Illuminati Escape was a very warm experience for us and we're waiting to go back to escape the 4th room soon!
