London is no different, with a rash of venues popping up in recent years. Archimedes is in Bermondsey, near London Bridge, and houses two different rooms of varying skill levels.
I did the easier room with a group of four friends, and it was quite the experience. The theme is a mental hospital, and players have to get inside the head of different patients in order to progress from one section to another. One challenge is particularly infuriating and has the potential to cause serious disagreements within the group, but it’s impossible to describe without giving away the secret.
In contrast to other escape rooms, Archimedes leaves you with a moral dilemma at the end. It provides an interesting twist to an otherwise fairly manageable escape room.
I’d recommend Archimedes, which boasts well-thought out puzzles that are engaging without being too complicated for first-time escape room visitors. Experienced players may want to try the advanced version for more of a challenge. Prices start from $120 for three people and decrease slightly per person the more people you bring along.

But if you find yourself in Rome and face crowds of epic proportions, here are a few ways to get away from the masses and enjoy Rome as more of a vacation destination than a tourist trap.
