About
Trapped in a mysterious room for 60 minutes, can you escape in time? This is a Live Escape Room. Here's how it works - Your team, a group of up to 6, will be "trapped" in one of our mysterious rooms for 1 hour. To complete your mission, you need to collaborate and think outside the box. You will have to solve a series of logic puzzles, find hidden clues and keys and open secret doorways, all before the time runs out! Perfect as a corporate team building exercise, date night, birthday parties or just some casual fun. If you've played one of the popular "Can You Escape The Room" video games, it's time to try an exciting real life version. Sounds like fun? Book online or call us now, and find out if you have what it takes!

What a fantastic hour of entertainment. Try to be Sherlock Holmes and solve the puzzles and riddles to get out of the room in only an hour. For young and old. The whole experience was very professionally done. We can't wait for the new room to open.

We were met by the owner, who you can see is very enthusiastic with his venture. We had been to Hinthunt in the waterfront as well as the one at the Old Biscuit Mill. We all agreed that Escapetrix was the most thrilling. We did "the Ancient Portal" and are eager to book again for "the Psychologist". It is only one room but is so multi-layered and technologically driven that you are surprised overtime. We couldn't stop talking about it for at least an hour afterwards. The are looking at adding more rooms. Very well priced.

We completed both escape rooms available at escapetrix and had an absolute blast doing so. Working in a team of four definitely helped us complete the rooms in time and allowed us to work well as a team. The rooms are set up extremely well and the challenges and puzzles set up are lots of fun to solve. We had a wonderful host who was very friendly and made our experience even more enjoyable. We found the portal room slightly easier than the psychologist’s room but both rooms were extremely different and had their own challenges and story lines. I strongly recommend this for a few hours of fun!

This was one of the best ideas and the kids loved the challenge. The staff was very friendly. This game offers unique challenges and out of the box thinking. I would recommend this at any time to any families with or without kids. Amazing experience!

A genuinely fun way to spend the afternoon. The Ancient Portal (one of the two experiences) had us excited and interested from start to finish. When in the room, you're completely captured by the experience and everything else falls away.

We played both rooms and really enjoyed it. We liked the themes, while the „Ancient Portal“ story is more fiction, kind of a scientific history setting, the „Psychologist“ has a theme about communication and is a bit more related to reality. Both rooms are really well thought-out and nicely decorated!
The puzzles / riddles vary in type but are definitely solvable. If you get stuck, you’ll get a hint via a display from the gamemaster, who is the owner and at the same time creator of the rooms. You can definitely tell that he put a lot of thinking and effort into both rooms and it was absolutely worth it. Even if english is not your native language, you will have no problems to play these rooms.
I definitely recommend this place, don’t miss it!

Been to them 3 times now, every time was amazing. Finding the next step to the puzzle feels like a small achievement that leads up to the greater objective
