    Visited the park during iikweek when there are some scary experiences like zombies etc. and park is open till midnight. Kids enjoyed the atmosphere and rides. Only negative think was the long waiting time in some of the rides, especially the ones with scary elements.

    I have played all the three rooms and specially the horror room was great, probably my favourite escape room of all time! And I don’t like horror movies at all, but this room was great.

    Leif is AMAZING. This was BY FAR the standout tour of the trip. I went for my 30th birthday and brought along by boyfriend (27), brother (28) and friend (23). This trip was extremely well received by us all. I include age for those who have families with young adults and wonder if this would be a good activity. And resoundingly YES this is an amazing activity. We are a family of Ocean Lifeguards in Los Angeles so this was right up our alley. We were flying through the water like actually FLYING. It was the perfect day in November (no rain thankfully) and our 4 passenger boat did it all. I brought eggs on Board by accident...they didn't break miraculously. But don't be fooled by how smooth this boat ride is. Because it still has that adrenaline junkie element that we CRAVED. We did the tour that allowed us to walk on Vallisaari Island for an Hour. Highly recommend. You get the extreme sport aspect and an actual amazing tour in one. We loved Leif he's radical.

    My first escape room experience and really enjoyed it! ’The curse’ was really challenging and fun (also at times a bit scary).

    Superb place for our first time supboarding. Chris was a great guide. We used the Riptide boards which apparently are good for beginners. Thanks!

    We came into the shop day-of to inquire about renting city bikes for a self-guided tour of Helsinki. The two staff were extraordinarily helpful and cheerful! They provided us with bikes, helmets, locks, basket and tire fix kit, and took time to ask what we wanted to see in the city, provided a map and helped us plan a route. Quality!

    Only downside is that my bike was ghosting in 3rd gear, but it did not significantly affect my day.

    Would highly recco this spot!

    Spending a few hours in this modern sauna before joining a dinner at the attached restaurant is the way to go in Helsinki! The atmosphere is unique as young people gather here before their evening out and enjoying the sauna here really gave us a slice of life of the Finnish people living in Helsinki. Traditions are kept as you will still find your ladle to pour water on the stove to create the perfect humidity. Do yourself a favour and visit the sauna on any city trip to Helsinki!

    We had initially booked the Snowmobiling Safari but received an email from Anders to say that due to lack of snow (actually no snow as they were experiencing one of the warmest February's on record!), they would be delighted to offer us a day's touring and activities with Kenneth. I'm so pleased we decided to do it. From the moment Kenneth met us at the hotel, we knew we were in for a treat. He is an amazing man. We toured to Porvoo which is definitely worth a visit...then a trip on the boat around the archipelago. It was stunning. Kenneth then took us to his residence where we enjoyed some time in the sauna...and attempted a dip in the sea! To finish off a fabulous day, we were spoilt with a delicious dinner - freshly caught salmon, smoked in front of us.....washed down with some local tipple! I can honestly say, I'd return to Helsinki just to do another day's activity with Kenneth and the team - if you get the chance to do one of Burn Out City's activities, you should jump at the chance. Kiitos Kenneth!

    Excellent game full of surprises! Challenging, as first timers we didn't make it through the game but we got close enough to feel accomplished. Experience was better than expected. Time really flew by. Game master was great and we were happy with the hints and their timing.

    Although we managed to escape only in our dreams, we were comforted by the fact that we solved our way up to the very last puzzle 😎🧠 Highly recommended!

    Staff was extremely enthusiastic and the whole experience was one of the best escape rooms I've been in.

    The fact that Hotel Katajanokka actually is a former Helsinki county prison renovated with loving care into a lifestyle hotel really adds to the experience. Well done!

    Very friendly and very good beer shop and bar. Some fantastic local beers to try and even some very hard to find beer from US when we were there (monkish and other half). Prices are craft norm and I went a couple times as I liked it so much.

    One of the best escape rooms I have experienced. Perfect for 4 persons. Different kind of locks and ways to solve puzzles.

    I just rejoined after being away for 10 years or so, and it feels as if I never left. Great atmosphere and really approachable, top-notch instructors that cater to all experience levels.
