A strong room with impressive set design and puzzles we've not seen anywhere else.
For some reason both the escape game venues currently open in central Cambridge use room designs from Hungarian company TRAP. I played most of the TRAP games in Budapest some years ago, but Armageddon is one of the designs that didn't exist at that time, so I happily booked in to try it when passing through town. I remembered the Budapest TRAP rooms as as solid and slick mass-market games, but then they were some of the first escape rooms I ever played, so I didn't have much to compare them to....
The second room from our Cambridge double bill.
The less experienced escapers in our team found the room to be a lot of fun, but those with a few more escapes under our belt were left a little underwhelmed. There’s a nice variety of puzzles but it’s a pretty short experience and a very crowded one with seven players.
