Budapest, Aug 2014
This review was written more than a year after we played it. Whilst we’re confident it’s accurate, it’s short and light on details.
I’m writing this review more than two years after playing the TRAP rooms, so my memory is unreliable and they may have changed anyhow – the Bomb Room for one appears to no longer exist. Also, we played all four rooms in a crazy consecutive burst of enthusiasm, which makes it harder to remember which was which.
However, it’s safe to say that the TRAP rooms were good mass-market escape rooms with more of a emphasis on physical puzzles, almost with a Crystal Maze feel. Everything’s robustly designed to survive day after day of rough handling by tourist teams, and they’re well set up for novice players. Experienced teams may find them nothing very special, but they’re decent, enjoyable rooms.
I actually liked this room quite a lot; unlike their other room, there wasn’t an artificial theme, it was quite an unusual location, a a couple of the puzzles really stood out. Ask them to brief you on types of locks before you go in!
