The Alchemy room runs every quarter past the hour. Pick your team mates.  Keep your eyes and mind open. You have 50 minutes to escape from your alternate reality. You will need intuition, logic and teamwork to succeed!

As we were in town for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, so when we heard from a friend about this escape room - we had to do it! We have completed many escape rooms before - including one in America - and unfortunately this was our least favourite. As the title says, we LOVED

Hi, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We are super excited that you enjoyed your experience in Alchemy and really happy for you that you can now call yourselves members of The Association of Advanced Alchemists! I'm sorry that there was no one to great you the moment of your escape, we do try to get to groups as quickly as possible but sometimes that is hard when they escape with a fair bit of time remaining, escaping with 16 minutes left is a real achievement! We don't do leaderboards because while they are great for the people who get close to the top or on top of them they are really disheartening for those who don't get close (or don't escape at all). As I said before escaping with 16 minutes remaining is a great effort but it is a long way off a record. We also don't offer photos initially as they can make less gregarious people feel pressured into having one which they may not want, we are more than happy to take one for you if you ask though! I would love to hear when you came in so I can work out whether any further training needs to be implemented, if you could contact me via email, michael@trapt.in that would be greatly appreciated.

Cool atmosphere and environment! Really fun and friendly staff. Patience is needed for beginners as it's really difficult to get a hang of. Try going with a larger group for a more enjoyable (and successful) experience.

Hi Lily, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review, it really means a lot to us to hear that our guests enjoyed their trip to Trapt. I will also make sure that I pass on the fact that you enjoyed the service provided by the staff as well. It can be quite challenging for beginners which is why we give you a walkie-talkie and are happy to provide as much extra help as you like. Hopefully, we can have you back soon and if you have any feedback as to how we could make that visit even better we would love to have you send us an email to bookigns@trapt.in
