Had quite high expectation of this room as, loved a recent trip to Bletchley park. I think there could of been more ties to enigma machines and possible morse code to tie it into Bletchley a bit more. The room itself had a lot of puzzles, especially for 2 people,  but nothing that stood out massively.

An enjoyable room with a lot of fun to be had. Enjoyed the character briefing and puzzles. The space had been used quite well to create a sense of adventure in a small area and the game had a great flow to it. Definitely play this before it goes!

A good room, well themed and a great set. Some really interesting original puzzles, there was also a couple which we didn't really "get" and possibly didn't flow quite as well, but it was an enjoyable room.

Reviews by escape room review sites

Time Trap’s wartime game is based around Bletchley counter-espionage. Set in a railway station, it gives you the job of identifying which of seven suspects is a spy. You have an additional bonus mission - apparently the spy has hidden several cylinders of coded information around the station, and you’re to find as many of these as you can.

All Time Trap’s games boast high quality sets. Station X is I think the most authentic-feeling of theirs so far, perhaps because it’s set in a more recent ti...

A room that immerses you in the 1940s from the moment you arrive right through to the end of the game. It's a beautiful experience with fun puzzles, interesting interactions, a little bit of humour and some bonus content to keep enthusiasts busy.
TimeTrap have created an excellent experience with clever puzzles, excellent set design, and a massive amount of fun. I’m only disappointed that it took us so long to make it to Reading; Station X is one not to miss!
We go back in time to a 1940's train station during World War 2 where we need to discover a spy.
The room is a great room and very immersive. It has some great puzzles that match the theme of the room and the staff are so enthusiastic. Read our review for more information!
Like a good wine, TimeTrap improves with age. This, their fourth escape game, demonstrates a provider that has built on success, learned from errors, dreamed up new ideas and concepts of how an escape room should work, and put on an extremely enjoyable experience. You should go. Yes, you.

I mean, wow. Going up those stairs is legit like walking through a door into the past. Every element is perfectly in keeping with the room. In short – when can I go back to try one of their other rooms? Can it be, like, now?
