Excellent game although the space is quite small so it's a great room to do with a small group.  We had a fantastic Game Master as well which always helps make the experience.

Another excellent room from Time Trap. Bletchley Park themed with great train station style.

They have two copies so you can also play competitively.

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.

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.

Reviews by escape room review sites

Time Trapโ€™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 youโ€™re to find as many of these as you can.
All Time Trapโ€™s games boast high quality sets. Station X is I think the most authentic-feeling of theirs so far, perhaps because itโ€™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. Iโ€™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 โ€“ when can I go back to try one of their other rooms? Can it be, like, now?

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!
