Frequently Asked Questions

What's the difference between the escape rooms?

The Architect is an escape room based experience with a playing time of 60 minutes.

The Vault is not just an escape room, but an immersive 'break-in' experience with a playing time of 80 minutes. Due to its unique concept, The Vault is experienced to be slightly more challenging than The Architect.

The Alchemist is a 90 minute 'magical' escape room and our newest addition to Sherlocked experiences. It has been well received by both escape room enthusiasts as well as players who are looking for more challenge.

Each of our escape rooms is unique and lots of fun!

PLEASE NOTE: While all our games take place in the same building, their staring points are different. Please refer to your booking information for exact entry instructions!

Is the location wheelchair accessible?

Unfortunately our location is not wheelchair accessible. All our Amsterdam escape rooms are located in the Beurs van Berlage which is a historic building and not well equipped to accommodate wheelchair users.

Do you take unpaid reservations?

No, we only take paid bookings via our website. This makes our system faster and more transparent!

How do we get to your location?

We recommend travelling with public transport! The city centre is notoriously hard to reach by car (so you could be delayed), and parking is very expensive. It's a short walk from Central Station, and there are many public transport stops nearby.

PLEASE NOTE: While all our games take place in the same building, their staring points are different. Please refer to your booking information for exact entry instructions!

If you do decide to travel by car, have a look at the P+R options in Amsterdam.

Do you have official terms and conditions? What about a privacy policy?
What is your cancellation policy?

Up to 48 hours before your game, it is free to cancel or move your booking. We can refund you, or give you a voucher to make a new booking. If you cancel between 48 and 24 hours before your game, we refund 50%. Less than 24 hours before starting time, refunds are no longer possible.

For cancellations, email

It is only possible to receive a refund for the change in the number of players if you inform us via email before the game.
Sherlocked retains the right to cancel or change any appointment up to 24 hours before the booking. In case Sherlocked has to cancel (with the exception of force majeure) the full amount will be refunded within 30 days.

Can we play more than one escape room at the same time?

Yes! All our Amsterdam escape rooms run on the same time schedule (every two hours).
Please note that they have slightly different time limits (The Architect 60 min., The Vault 80 min., The Alchemist 90min.) so chances are the groups won't end at the exact same time.

While waiting on your teammates, how about you grab a drink in the Bistro Berlage? :) (located in the same building)

Can we do the escape rooms with more than 6 at the same time?

The Vault is playable by up to 7 people! 6 players is our maximum for the Architect and the Alchemist. Unfortunatelly we cannot exceed these numbers due to safety reasons and the design of the gameplay.
If your team is 12 people we advise you to consider the large group arrangement called Time Crimes.

Can my 12 year old son/daughter join my team?

Absolutely. Perhaps they will be the smartest player on your team...

Can our 12 year olds play without adult supervision?

No, some of our puzzles would be tricky without some adult insight. We've had groups of 14 year olds and they managed well, so we set the minimum age requirement at 14+ for groups without adults. A chaperone of 16 years or older is required for younger participants.

Can we start our game at a different time than the one available in the booking calendar?

We cannot change starting times of our games due since each experience requires preparations and run with a carefully orchestrated "game plan".

Can we be a little tipsy?

Not even a little. We need you at your sharpest, and also, the rooms are over 100 years old and not tipsy-proof.

We're pretty stern about this actually and our hosts will refuse or remove a player from the game if they feel they're intoxicated or disrupting the game flow.
