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.

Me and my partner can not rate this experience highly enough - We had so much fun! The adrenaline kicks in as soon as the time starts and we were buzzing for days afterwards!
If you like puzzles, video games or always fancied your hand at the Crystal Maze then you'll absolutely love this experience.
You need to book your slot and pay in cash (v. good price!) I looked up the address on Google maps street view before hand so we knew what the building looks like and so exactly where to go. It's true that you don't meet any staff upon arrival, (this only adds to the atmosphere and suspense of the experience and is a great touch) instructions are written in English on a piece of paper in the first room.
The game is challenging but totally achievable (we are proud to say we finished it in 50 minutes! :) most of all its extremely fun, we are now on the hunt for all the other Exit Room Games. Book your visit now!!!!!!! Thank you Claustrophilia!!! :)

“So much fun!”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

We loved this. Puzzles were challenging and we didn't finish - spent too long figuring out how to get into the first room. Will definitely look for similar attractions in other cities.

this was our first experience of any kind of escape game and we loved it. The game is challenging and fun. There were only 2 of us, but I don't think that put us at too much of a disadvantage,
There is a phone on the wall for you to ring for clues - we certainly needed this at the beginning!
If you haven't done one of these before, so give it a go - you will enjoy it!. there is no need to be good at languages or maths - just general problem solving. it was like being in the crystal maze but for an entire hour.
The time flew by and it was probably the highlight of our trip to Budapest.
It was such good value for a really fun night out.

“Quirky reminder of what can be down WITHOUT a games console!”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

The 'Voodoo games' room is a little hard to find, you need to buzz in next to some large black iron gates, so you know! A great idea, very original and had a real charm to it. My boyfriend and I had lots of fun, a few tantrums, we didn't actually make it out, much to our disappointment, but was still entertaining and enjoyable and we'll definitely be back! The man who greeted us afterwards was very nice, we hope they expand to the UK! Would definitely recommend!

“Best Escape Plan game Ever”
Reviewed April 20, 2014 via mobile

I went to this game after reading the review and rating in tripadvisor. This was amazing good game and never been so excited to get out in this fantastic escape game. Love to visit the other room next time i visit Budapest. It'also located in the middle of town near the main road. A must to see as couple, family or friends. Take the challange now!
