My family and I went and we had a really great time. Really good puzzles to solve and really friendly lady. We did it in under an hour so it’s not too long!

Having read really good reviews, we were not disappointed. Extremely cleverly thought out, with the owner providing hints if you are really stuck. As this was our first escape room, perhaps it was a bit too challenging for our simple minds, but that did not...More

This escape room is located across from the famous New York cafe. Though you need to book in advance, we rang and they setup the room in about 1/2 hr. The puzzle starts as soon as you walk in the entrance door after you read...More

Probably the best escape room I have ever done. Tests you in many different ways and is quite challenging, yet It still manages to stay logical and the clues don’t become overly convoluted like some of the other escape rooms I have done. It also...More

One of the best escape rooms I've been to in the world. Cleverly designed, took a while to figure it out. Well worth the visit next time you're in Budapest.

District VII / Jewish Quarter
District VII is the very heart of Budapest and houses
the city’s Jewish Quarter. Its streets are lively and
colorful, its buildings narrate different histories in
an assortment of architectural styles, and its cafes
and bars are frequented and loved by the enthusiastic
crowds. Grand and magnificent, the striking star of
the district is the Great Synagogue, the largest in
Europe and one of the biggest in the world. Distinctly

Mindmaze Prague or Claustrophilia Budapest?? (1 Replies)
So which is better and more challenging Mindmaze in Prague or Claustrophilia in Budapest?? Or are they both worth a visit? (they look and sound similar). My husband and I are planning to visit the region this August, this is something we wanted to do if we get some spare time.

I will be visiting in Budapest from Mar 18 next month but plan to take a side trip to Vienna from Mar 20th to Mar 24th before returning back to Budapest from 24th to 26th. I am interested in playing Claustrophilia due to the glowing review in TripAdvisor. However, I will be traveling alone and the people there told me I can't take part in the game without a partner. I'm curious if there is anyone who plans to visit Budapest at the same time as me and also interested in playing? I don't know...More

What are the main differences between the 2 escape games? Which is recommended for young people who enjoy RPG video games, horror mazes, and adrenaline?
