Owner description: Exit game? Room escape? Puzzle solving game? Team building? Having fun with others? The love of enclosure. And of course the catarsis what you feel when you are already out. This is the transplantion of the well known adventure and point & click games into the reality, where the searching, the puzzle solving and the excitement remains, but the experience becomes touchable and the place is real. You need to find real objects, combine and use them with which across the dozens of logical and ability games you get nearer to the final puzzle which gives you the key to escape. You have one hour in this environment closed from everyday life, where the ancient surviving and problem solving instincts inside of you can revive. You need to work in team, watch every details, every hint in the rooms to accomplish the game. Prepare yourself, we created the puzzles in a way that you need to use your brain capacity on the maximum level, to push your limits and of course to feel all right behind the padlocks.

We wanted to try something different on our visit to Budapest and boy was this different. Our kids get tired of trudging around looking at buildings and churches, so we decided to give this a try. The kids were a little apprehensive at first, but by about 10 minutes in they were racing around trying to find the clues. By far one of the most memorable adventures we have had in Europe so far.

Really well thought out and created in such a way that it doesn't just feel like an attraction. My girlfriend and I felt as if the whole experience had been created solely for us, as if we had stumbled upon it and had simply found ourselves solving puzzles & collecting clues. Obviously it was created with a lot of care and a love of point and click, logic & puzzle solving games. Genuinely unique - DO IT!

Easily the most unique attraction we've experienced during our time in Budapest. My boyfriend and I went together, both being fans of point-and-click escape games. It was great fun solving the little puzzles together, and very rewarding having completed the game with time to spare. Great concept and wonderful execution. We would recommend this to anybody, but bring your brain!

The concept may sound a bit strange at first, but this is perhaps just natural when introducing an idea into a new environment. However, the game caught on fast and became widely popular in London, Barcelona and Budapest, where it has been set up in the past two years. Their Facebook pages are bustling with images of the happy teams who escaped, and the twitter feeds are full with positive remarks as well. Indeed, the live room escape game offers a fresh experience for the social agenda. It presents a great substitute for, or addition to a group's usual evening routine.

It was our first ever experience with a 'real life escape game', but what a fun we had! You totally go up in the game and forget about time and place. Apparently these games are popping up all over Budapest and the rest of Hungary. They'll probably become a success in other cities too. Great for an hour of fun with friends, family or colleagues. Some interesting discounts for families, duos, etc. Overall: try this, it's great!
