Locked-Down in Benidorm

This is one experience, not to be missed.

“Un zombie se esfuerza en conseguir un cerebro.”

Benidorm is so diverse. There is so much to do. Usually, in so little time. Cramming everything into a holiday can be difficult. But, this is one experience, not to be missed.

One of the biggest challenges I have found is finding something different to do. Something enjoyable for everybody. Something everybody will want to join in with.

As it’s Easter, my parents and teen brother have come to visit us. As my brother is here celebrating his birthday, we decided to find different things to do. Something possibly out of the ordinary. 

That’s when we came across the Lockdown Escape Room in Benidorm.


I have heard a lot about escape rooms and how they’re becoming increasingly popular, and now I see why. We knew very little about escape rooms so we weren’t sure what to expect.

We booked the easier room, ease ourselves into the escape room experiences. The Zombie Room is rated as a 7/10 for difficulty, so that’s the one we went for. We were ready to solve this zombie epidemic!


Our gamemaster, Ruben, briefed us on the mission and what we needed to do. He helped us through the storyline and gave vital information. The staff were all super helpful and super friendly. They made the experience even better.

We were split into two teams, we split ourselves into the women and the men. We had to work together in order to join together.

I felt like I was in a real-life version of Crystal Maze. As somebody who loves games, it felt so cool to be inside a game. There was no need for physical force or strenuous activity, your mind is your power. 

Solving puzzles, rummaging for clues and using your brain power. You’re put to the ultimate test. With the clock ticking, the atmospheric music and the tensions getting higher, you feel the pressure. You can feel your heart rate racing.

We were required to work together as a team, share information and piece together details to solve the apocalypse. Everything means something.

If you want the ultimate you had to be there moment. This is it. Very close to solving the final piece, we get into the last room and Oliver slams the door on Alex. Nobody gets left behind, right? Don’t worry, we went back and saved him, just.

That feeling when the light goes green and you’re through. It’s like an ultimate victory. We made it. 15 seconds to spare. But, we did it.


Walking out those doors and knowing you’ve completed it. Such a sense of achievement.

Then, after your brain has already been put to the ultimate test, you have one final challenge. Picking a team name for the team photo.

All in all, it’s a great experience. It was fantastic for something different. Perfect for teens. Perfect for a rainy day in Benidorm. I can’t recommend it enough!

What is it?

The escape room is a real test of logic, observation, determination, teamwork and communication.

Imagine, you’re thrust into the gaming world. Everything is a clue. Riddles, solving combinations to locks, finding patterns. The clues are right before your eyes. Hidden in plain sight.

Perfect for the avid gamers amongst us. Perfect for those who love to solve a good puzzle. Perfect for building teamwork.

Without giving any spoilers, make sure you communicate. You need to work together.

Where is it?

The Lock Down room is located on Calle Ibiza 6. It’s located opposite the Dog House.

Was it Suitable?

We all loved it. We went as a family, but any group would love it. My brother loves video games so, being thrust into a real-life game is perfect for the teens. We were a range of ages and all loved it.

Would you Go Again?

Definitely! We had an absolutely amazing time. We experienced the Zombie Escape Room, so we definitely want to go back and try the other rooms.

How do you Book?

We booked online through the Escape Room page. You can also go in and see the staff and book there!

If you’re looking for an adrenaline buzz then this is a must-do experience.

Have you tried an Escape room before?

Hasta luego,
