Another immersive room packed full of high quality set design. We enjoyed the puzzles, especially as many felt quite different to others that we'd seen elsewhere. That's probably in large part thanks to the impressive and authentic-feeling props and implementation of the theme.

Our GM Verity was fantastic, only nudging us when we needed it, and adding character to the game. Fab room!

This was definitely a bit easier than the other TimeTrap games we played over a weekend (reflected in our time, no clues), but it's a lovely game - it looks fantastic, enjoyed the optional secondary goal to vary the difficulty a little and it all flowed very well. Recommend playing for the experience - good fun.

A nicely themed room with the option of a vs mode with 2 identical rooms. Some unique puzzles as well as fun extras such as colllecting tokens for points. Great hosts as always. Definitely recommend if you're in the area.

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.
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?
