2-6 players

60 minutes

After a monotonous 9 to 5 shift, you get home and look around, deciding that you need a change so you call up a few friends and arrange to do something exciting. How about that new ‘escape room’ thingy that just opened near the town? The posters look stimulating and it’s had great reviews! Everyone agrees that it’s a good idea so you decide to book in and a few days later you are standing in the blackened void that is the Trapp’d reception eagerly waiting.
You have decided to try ‘The Monosphere’ room which promises to be a crazy, mind-bending psychoactive experience all rolled into one fascinating room. What you don’t realise, however, is that the government are actually using this room to test a new form of mind-modification to try and create the ‘perfect utopia’ within society - a sort of brain-washing totalitarian epidemic, if you will. Anyone who attempts this ‘escape room’ unconsciously falls into a passive stupor of compliance and conformity… Do not let this be you! Figure out a way to escape without alerting anyone to your recognition of the untold activities being performed within this room. Trapp’d in with 60 minutes to escape… before you lose your mind!

Reviews by escape room review sites

Trapp'd's Northampton branch (and only now do I notice how awkward their name is to apostrophise) has two games at time of writing, and the first one we tried was Monosphere. This game has the original premise that you are... in an escape room. However, the escape room is secretly a front for dubious government experiments on psychoactive substances. This is an excuse for a room of full-on hallucinatory decorations, like standing inside a 360 degree visual illusion.

The Monosphere probably won’t be winning any awards, but we found it enjoyable. What we were most impressed by is how Trapp’d have managed to keep it so clean given the amount of white in a room located next door to Molten Creek Mine!

We get a crazy, mind-bending psychoactive experience with this escape room in Northampton.
