Description: Exit game? Room escape? Puzzle solving game? Team building? Having fun...
Exit game? Room escape? Puzzle solving game? Team building? Having fun with others? The love of enclosure. And of course the catarsis what you feel when you are already out. This is the transplantion of the well known adventure and point & click games into the reality, where the searching, the puzzle solving and the excitement remains, but the experience becomes touchable and the place is real. You need to find real objects, combine and use them with which across the dozens of logical and ability games you get nearer to the final puzzle which gives you the key to escape. You have one hour in this environment closed from everyday life, where the ancient surviving and problem solving instincts inside of you can revive. You need to work in team, watch every details, every hint in the rooms to accomplish the game. Prepare yourself, we created the puzzles in a way that you need to use your brain capacity on the maximum level, to push your limits and of course to feel all right behind the padlocks.

Very fun and satisfying once you get on a roll and find clues hidden around, the host paid attention and was very nice to speak to once the game was over. We were one clue away from escaping which isn't bad going for a group of two either

Very good way of spending an hour After initial trepidation at walking into a room and locking it behind us and without seeing anyone beforehand, it was a great experience. Putting together clues and working between rooms, thinking logically and outside the box, cracking codes and opening padlocks by searching everything in the rooms. We failed to make it to... More

Voodoo Room (5/5 stars) First we went to the Voodoo room and it was really a lot of fun. The room was really well organized and the instructor always paid attention and gave us little hints when needed and everything worked out well. Since it was so much fun we also decided to do the wicklewood room. Wicklow Room (2/5... More

This was our first experience of an escape room game and we were not disappointed! The atmosphere is excellent since as soon as you enter the apartment, you are in the game (we played the adventurer-themed one). None of the steps are impossible but there is a phone where you can ask for help if necessary. I would thoroughly recommend... More

This was such a fun evening activity! I was invited along by my hostel mates - all of us not really sure what we were in for and it ended up being the best time. All I can say is that it's a value for money activity that I really enjoyed and I'm sure many other would too.

My boyfriend and I booked the Voodoo escape room and were not disappointed. I had previously done an escape room in Edinburgh but this one was definitely the superior. The game starts as soon as you enter the door - if you are expecting to be greeted by staff you wont be - the game starts immediately! It will get... More

Remember those 'Choose Your Own Adventure' books? This is kind of like that except real life and way better. This is probably one of the best things I've done in my life aside from the time I went swimming with whale sharks. If I had to make a top two list of everything I've done in my life it would...

My wife and I escaped in under 50 minutes, but we already did 2 escape rooms before so we understood the idea. For a new escsper, I'd recommend going to other escape rooms first, to get more explanations. This room is located in an old building which gives it a great old vibe. The riddles are straight forward with nothing... More

We only had a few days in Budapest and having never gone to a puzzle room before, we were a bit skeptical. But in the spirit of trying new things, we went to the website and reserved a time. I am not sure what I expected, maybe trivia questions or something like a haunted house but what we got was... More
