Travel back to Bavaria in the year 1901 to visit the humble toy shop, Otto’s, where a world-changing incident has occurred. A young toy inventor has created what will become a huge phenomenon, but he’s been knocked back before he can begin – the grumpy shop owner won’t stock it!It’s up to you to sneak into the toy shop at night and place the toy into the shop window. The sales will start flooding in and prove the toy a success, so we can all enjoy it for decades to come! …if you succeed.

story-drivenfamily friendlyquite easy
We have completed nearly all games at TimeTrap to date and they have all been amazing. From hosting, to theming, and the puzzles themselves, the attention to detail is second to none. This game was still fun and there was some interesting parts to the game to make it a bit more immersive (involving leaving the room and doing additional tasks). There were also some unique puzzles that I've not seen before, however, I feel like there wasn't as many puzzles as usual for TimeTrap games. I would definitely recommend this christmas themed game for families as there's an appeal to children with the toy shop setting, but not sure if the same would apply so much when it's the spooky edition. We had a relatively quick completion time and the hosts were welcome and friendly as ever, however the game itself didn't leave me buzzing.

The two parallel rooms is clever, and I think the first ive ever done where you go out of the room during the game...?! 

Think pudding lane is better, but this is still worth doing.

More brilliant sets and puzzles from the TimeTrap team, we love the versus mode and some of the out of the box moments!

Played with our 6 and 9 year olds, great story, enough they could get involved in. Nice use of the space and some really original puzzles, that we haven't seen in 75+ rooms.

I love Time Trap games but sadly not this one. It lacked flow and felt quite disjointed.
