Cryptex is Prague's most challenging escape game, where you don't need...

Cryptex is Prague's most challenging escape game, where you don't need physical fitness, only brain power. Don't take only our word for it! Just accept the challenge. If you get out without help and cheating your game was free. Find yourself in a basement room that looks like no one touched it in decades. Suddenly the door closes behind you, and you are suddenly in a treasure hunt for hidden riches and a quest to escape. Get in a skin of a early 20th century gangster. You and your companions just arrived back to your secret office after an exhausting year long business trip. But as soon as you get in the door your secretary storms out and leaves you with a ticking bomb to deal with. But there is a chance to get out of this mess...

I love escape games but this one is simply one of the worst games in Prague. I recommend choosing any other in Prague.

In two groups of four we tried both rooms in one evening and it was absolutely amazing and enjoyable. Both rooms are very difficult, but very well done. You will definitely not be disappointend if you try it. The guy who received us was very nice and polite. Just go and have fun!

We were a group of 8 people. We tried both of the rooms and played kind of 4v4. The rooms were really challenging and well made. The 2 rooms are different and need a different approach, but we all really liked the experience. One of the best and most difficult rooms. We all blew up at the end but got... More

This escape game was amazing and fun. It's really difficult and you have to think outside of the box to solve it which makes the game really intriguing. Definetly a must if you like escaperooms.

We took part in both rooms. The lost treasure had a good flow to it. The Bomb was very difficult and was a little more confusing. Both rooms were good quality and enjoyable.

After playing at Getaway we were recommended to try this one too. We were first hesitating and wanted to check out another higher ranked place but it was a good choice to follow the advice! We played The lost treasure and it was amazing! The room was nicely built, good ambient and excellent tricks! Some of the tricks was just... More

It is a very difficult escape room (which is a good thing), but it has a highly repetitive flow (which is a bad thing). Better options available in Prague: 6/10.

CryptexPraha, Owner at Cryptex, responded to this review

Hi Andrei, We tried to message you here(with no reply), since we don't have you in our database. I'm eager to find out what you found repetitive in the games. Since there isn't even 2 similar things you have to do in both games, and all the steps require a different idea. Unless you found the process of coming up... More

This is a great place. The owner runs Cryptex day-to-day and seems like a genuinely nice guy. I booked both rooms (I think there are only two) the day we went. I took to two groups of 5 high school students. They loved the challenging set ups. As one student said, Cryptex is "a game in which the students were... More
