    Average escape room
    The first mystery you need to solve, it's actually finding the venue.... no street signs, backed up on an residential alley. The staff, polite, helpful but a bit bored. We tried the catacombs escape, and apart from the mould smell, no other catacomb scenery.... illogical clues, damaged props... Was nice, but other places offer much much interesting puzzles. Also the place, could be a little more cleaner.

After visiting over 40 escape rooms, we wanted a new experience, so we chose Escape the Mansion at Cryptex. It was simply overpriced and dull, the room we ended up in was too small and the puzzles were frustrating and illogical at certain points. The game masters were lacking interest. I do not recommend it, I really regret spending money on this.

It's in a predominantly residential neighborhood behind a gate. It didn't even look like a business other than a small sign. Inside, a larger sign was posted on the far building but nobody answered the door when we knocked. Are reservations required? It seemed unprofessional to me.

An awesome way to spend an hour in Bucharest with your friends. We really enjoyed the game and the atmosphere was great. I felt like being in a movie, the ideas and clues were very creative and well-prepared.I strongly recommend it!

Great place, great people! I was for the first time in an escape room at Cryptex and I had a lot of fun! They also have a good location. Can't wait for the next adventure :)
I warmly recommend it to the curious and persistent ones.

A fun place for smart people: it gets your mind ticking and your heart pumping :)
you feel like you are apart of a movie scene , everything gets real, and you are facing the scenario: how to get out of the room! No fake stuff, real emotions, real adrenaline

I went there with my girlfriend and we both really enjoyed ourselves. The whole experience was really something else. We were a little confused when we first got there, as the game master told us the room is too difficult and maybe we would want an easier one, as we weren't very experienced players. I can't say more without giving spoilers, but the beginning was really weird and unique, in a good way. They managed to do so much with so little... and I really congratulate them for that. Definetly the best overall experience I had at an escape room. We managed to escape and for sure we will go check out the other rooms.

We have been to 6 or more escape rooms now, and have come to expect a lot more satisfying challenges than we got on this occasion - sadly the room we chose to start with was unavailable (due to being damaged by another group). So we were given another room - the Conspiratorium room. The room did not contain enough things of interest or relevance to keep us interested. There were a lot of things that had no meaning. No creative things to try and do. Just finding some codes to get keys, which is ok, but not enough on its own. One main clue was not at all well indicated, so that you never felt like you were pointed in the proper direction. Plus the storyline for the whole room was never really referred to once you got inside.
