Fun game and as per the TimeTrap experience, another beautiful set design and backstory. Enjoyed the first half more than the second half - didn't quite agree with elements of a couple of the puzzles and felt one of the props probably needed a repaint, although fairly minor gripes and possibly judging too harshly having just played their other two games which are fantastic - would still very much recommend playing this.

Really interesting puzzles and an unusual theme, nice decor and quaint room. Seems like the best of the area! Definitely will be returning to try their other room.

Incredibly creative and beautiful room. Loved some of the alternative non traditional puzzles here, as well as the room's overall style.

Quite a number of escape companies use a time travel premise for their games, and the first game I played at TimeTrap demonstrated a stronger than average grasp of historical detail. So it was a surprise to find that in Imaginarium, although it theoretically sends you back to the year 1863, the setting is more whimsical and fantastical than Victorian. But then, this is a game based around Lewis Carroll and Alice In Wonderland.
The other Alice-themed games I've played have all cast the players a...
The second outing from the impressive Time Trap team in Reading. An interesting take on the Alice in Wonderland theme, this game saw us entering Lewis Carroll's mind in order to restore the memories he used to create his most famous book.

A really fun room that encapsulates the spirit of Alice in Wonderland perfectly. Puzzles on theme, set looking great, generally just a good room all round

We are given a recommendation to visit TimeTrap whilst we're in Reading, and we aren't disappointed!

We’ve played a few rooms that use Alice in Wonderland as the theme, and it was a pleasant surprise to find this story and theme put a twist on the whole thing.

There were a number of unique puzzles that made for an interesting room. 

Take lots of lights, one large dose of Lewis Carroll, and a range of puzzles, and you’re somewhere in the right direction. TimeTrap let their imagination run wild… did it work?
