“Absolutely Brilliant”

Recommended length of visit: <1 hour
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 didn't know a whole lot about this prior to our trip to Budapest, but it ended being the highlight of our stay - challenging and great fun, plus a real feeling of achievement if you manage to finish! Definitely a must if you are headed to Budapest.

Can't recommend this enough! Best thing we did in Budapest. Rock up at apartment building and then you're straight into the action with almost no instruction. Great mental challenge and the buzz of it stays with you long after the hour is up.

“Great fun!”
Reviewed February 10, 2014

My boyfriend and myself booked a slot at Claustrophilia in advance and we're so glad we did! From the moment we entered the door, it was intensely fun and challenging! Thoroughly enjoyed every moment & have been recommending it to all our friends and family.

We were in a group of three and totally enjoyed this experience.we found it challenging, with a good variety of different puzzles. We finished with 5 minutes to spare and only needed one clue so we were pretty pleased.

“No wonder why it's number 1!”
Reviewed January 30, 2014

First thing I should say: BOOK IN ADVANCE! Otherwise you may not be able to play this game.
Went there with my girlfriend, and we really loved it! The puzzles are really various, and all very fun! (Can't say a lot more without giving out spoilers...)
The price is well good for this kind of activities, and the host was nice :)
