“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

My boyfriend and I tried the secret tomb room and it was so so so so fun! The puzzles were very interesting and clever, definitely made you think! Worth every penny. Even though it was just the two of us we still managed to figure it out with help from our guide, who was very very friendly and even let us continue playing even though we were over by 4 minutes! Anyone who visit budapest should definitely try out trap. Good hour well spent!

“Fun and challenging!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014

We did the Egypt room with a group of 4 and it was a great time. The puzzles and clues were actually pretty difficult, and it was fun figuring them all out together. Our guide was super friendly and helpful too. Would definitely recommend!

We managed to get out of the trap in less than one hour, not bad for a bunch of newbies :)...
We had a fantastic time!

“Unique and simply amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014

A friend of mine advised to try one of these "escape games" while we are in Budapest.
Trap was close to our hotel and it got very good review on TA so we gave it a try.
Me and 2 of mine friend booked for "The secret of the tomb" game.
This game located in a basement and although it looks ruined, it just creates a more authentic atmosphere for the game.
Staff were very friendly and they explaining everything before you start.
The game is very exhilarating you jumping from one clue to another and the time running so quickly there:), took us about 60 minutes to get out with the help of some handy clues received from our host.
We got addicted so much to this activity we booked another session straight after finishing, for the Egyptian game for the following day.
This game located in their new location and from the start you can see that they put a serious money and effort to create an Egyptian (and Medieval) atmosphere for these game.
You start inside a pyramid and crawling your way out:), very nicely made with tricky puzzles.
We didn't have the time to try the other games but next time I'm in Budapest I definitely will.
So overall Trap games are very well done and highly recommended!

“So much fun for a unique tourist attraction”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

We went into this having never played an exit game before and thinking we were going to be absolutely useless at it. We left the bomb game after having an incredible amount of fun, giggles and feeling a sense of achievement. We were surprised at how well we worked together and complimented each other as a team and (perhaps with a few handy clues from staff) we managed to diffuse the bomb within our allotted time.

It was a very cleverly, quirkily put together and I would recommend to anyone who fancies a different kind of experience. If I am ever in Budapest again I would 100% return to play the other games.

Our only slight criticism is the price. For 2 persons it was very pricey for one hour in a room with second hand charity furniture. They must make a killing on profit in this business. I think it should be paid by person rather than per game, to make it fairer, or at least buy one game get the next half price as there was no way we could have afforded to fork out for another game. Or at least there should have been some kind of incentive to completing before the end, such as a 10% refund perhaps.
