TRAP is quite a hidden attraction. Not very obvious from the road, but just follow the address and you won't have much problems finding it.

They have 2 puzzle rooms currently and my husband and I had a great time in both TRAP 1 and TRAP 2. Basically you have to solve the puzzles as a team by looking for clues (physical, mental) within the given time. TRAP 1 is to find the password to the bomb before it detonates. TRAP 2 is to find the code to get out of the room before time is up.

We went as a couple, manage to solve both puzzles with the help of the crew who gave additional clues if they sense us getting stuck at a particular point for longer than usual. I think it will probably be even more fun to go as a bigger group.

It's a very unique experience in all, somewhat like the flash-based Crimson Room game (created by Toshimitsu Takagi in 2004) but more awesome as you can play in REAL LIFE! We've had a good variety of puzzles, some are even quite challenging. Won't go into the details coz I don't want to spoil the fun but it's great for everyone in the family. The way the guys design the puzzles are really quite creative!

Yes, it's not your standard tourist attraction (museum, cathedral, river cruise, etc) but it will definitely guarantee a great time out with friends or family. I hope they will create more rooms soon, can't wait to try more puzzles from TRAP! Our weekend trip to Budapest was a lot more interesting because of TRAP. Highly recommended. Do not miss!!!!

Some tips:
- Cash payment only.
- Book in advance - they do get very busy in the weekend.
- As you have a booking schedule to meet, do allow more travelling time to tram + walk over as budapest is a big city and it takes time to get around

This adventure was the highligt of our trip to Budapest. We solved one of the rooms, even thougj it was hard wit only two participants. We did need a bit of help to solve it but we did so with 6 minutes left on the bomb timer. Coincidently, the code was the same as the door code for our hotel! What that is, will take to my grave...

Seriously, you MUST visit TRAP if you go to Budapest. Next time we go back, we will try the other room.

Visited Budapest for a short weekend last week and having looked for things to do decided to try out TRAP. Simply put it is a must!!!! We went as a group of 6 and split into 2 groups this worked out at roughly £9 per person and boy was it worth every penny. The staff are very friendly and are more than happy to guide you if you miss the mark. Don't want to spoil it for the rest of you but please, please, please do go and experience TRAP (book in advance)

Do not be deceived by the modest building and exteriors, it was probably my best experience in Budapest. The staff are extremely friendly, helpful and welcoming. TRAP is perfect for all age groups and is a world class experience full of surprises.

this is great, and ive never seen anything like it. dont miss it.

the experience involves a group of you (between 2 and 4 people although we did it with 2 and we struggled) being locked in a room with lots of props around. the idea being to exit it within an hour or face death...

there are clues (if you can find them!) and puzzles to solve, both mental and physical . the level of detail of the clues, mechanisms and the misdirection and sheer left-field thinking that has been put into the design is absolutely fantastic.

we had to get a few clues from the room director (he watches on a web cam and can offer clues vocally over a speaker if you have been stuck for ages) - it would be better with 3 or 4 people.

think S.A.W. (but its child friendly )

we did the first one (we didnt make it out though!) and immediately booked to do the other room it was so good. we did get out of the second one which we were very proud of!!

its just a shame that there arent more rooms to do - we would have done as many as they had!
