Few weeks ago me and my group of friends came to Budapest especially to play escape games. We planned to play 2 rooms by Mystique Room, but ended up getting so excited we followed up with one more.

Smart puzzle design was presented through out all 3 games, each brought at least one completely new approach we haven't seen before. Moreover, the vertical division in Pirate Bay is just such a brilliant idea. The only bigger downside would be Pirate bay having really weak finnish as it basically closes with a searching puzzle and those can get super frustrating and just completelly kill the flow and the build up the game created up to that point.

Game visuals in Time Machine and Pirate Bay absolutelly excelent. I personally especially enjoyed Pirate Bay with attention to detail going as far as the sky and the water. The Shogun's Shadow was a bit weaker as the visuals weren't very consistent but they were still one of the best ones we have seen in Budapest.

The stories and the briefing by the employees were lacking a bit and it's such a shame, as the rooms are otherwise superb. It would be great if the story presented before the game was a bit more immersive and set the mood for the game instead of just feeling like mandatory information to pass on.

Other than that the staff was nice and welcoming and were always willing to help us when we needed it. Personally I wasn't the biggest fan of the traditional walkie talkie hint system as it really doesn't fit the stories of the games in any way so it takes you out of the experience a bit.

For me Time Machine was the best while the Shogun's shadow felt a bit repetitive and too reliant on padlocks so I enjoyed that one the least. Nevertheless, overal we had a great time and will quite likely be back for more!

Thank you for the fun :)

Games of Thrones was tons of fun. Once you step into the first room you are catched by the immersity of the game. No odd keys to search like in many other games, but full of logic puzzles and many creative ways on how to open doors and cases and secret places. Lots of technical gadgets, and they really work ! Congrats to the game designers and the maintenance team, I highly recommend this place.

We’ve played around 80 rooms of varying size & design- but most haven’t compared to Mystique! We did Shogun’s Shadow, Alice, Time Machine & Pirate Bay, all as a pair, & thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The sheer size and build of Pirate Bay is mind boggling, Alice is a treasure trove for the senses (although was let down slightly by 1 puzzle not working) & we loved the variety of puzzle types in Shogun’s Shadow with its emphasis on some of the more traditional elements of escape rooms rather than being all tech driven. All in all we were wowed by Mystique & would heartily recommend it.

We visited the Submarine room. Our expectation was super high but in reality, the atmosphere of the room was quite childish. However, when we start solving the puzzle it seems OK.
To be honest, we won't try again these kinds of escape rooms unless they work hard on their realness.

We like escape rooms, so we have tried quite a few already, but this was the best so far. Quality equipment and enterior, great story and clever puzzles to solve. We were in the Harry Potter themed room, no keys or padlocks: you use magic sticks and similar stuff to proceed, this is what I can tell you without spoiler. :) It tells everything that we booked our next visit within a couple of hours after our escape. Highly recommended!

We went as a team-building experience, booking two of the same rooms (the Pharaoh-inspired ones) so that we could "compete" against each other. It was super fun - so much so, that we decided we'd like to do it again soon. I highly recommend the Mystique Room to do together with friends, family or colleagues.

We already played a couple of their games and every one was great. Their sets are very well crafted, with great focus on every single detail. The puzzles are well constructed and there is always only one possible solution (not the case on other venues we have played). If you love a good set and decoration, I can recommend you play the pirates, time machine, shogun, alice first.

We had fun in the Game of Thrones themed room. Managed to finish it inn ~40 minutes. According to the game master this was a medium difficulty room so with somewhat inexperienced team members I think the runtime was pretty good. The clues were fairly straightforward to decipher and as all the locks and mechanisms were automated If we had the right solution we could easily continue.

The game master was helpful and nice!

Fun experience alltogether!

Pros: These guys build the most beautiful rooms I've ever seen! The rooms look amazing, it's like you're on the set of a movie. We played Game of Thrones, Pirate Bay and Alice as well, we were blown away by how nice everything looks.
Cons: I think the puzzles could be a bit more exciting, we had fun but didn't get that WOW feeling when you finally get the logic of a puzzle. Staff looked bored, the walkie talkie didn't work at first so they had to come inside to fix it, it ruined the immersion a bit (they said it was our fault it didn't work but we didn't even touch it after we got inside the room).
