The game was a good one, I’ve lost track of how many escape games I’ve played, but I am confident that this is one of the best! The support we received when we had to ask them to stop some lights flashing was great. We will be back.

From the moment we arrived, our game master David was in character. He took us back in time and explained the brief to us, making sure that we understood what was going on. He was also super helpful throughout.
The escape room itself - Bletchley 1942, was great, the decor was amazing and added to the whole experience.
We were in a team of 4 and everyone had enough to do, solving some puzzles alone and some with teamwork.
Overall I would recommend and am looking forward to booking our pudding Lane experience.

I’ve been meaning to write this review for a while, but the experience was amazing! It was my first escape room ever, and the person who ran our game was Maddy and she was excellent! She stayed in character when assisting us and created such a great atmosphere. Thank you so much!

OK, look, I'll level with you, our session had been booked in for 1pm, the day after I'd seen a side project of my favourite band play their first ever gig. I got so excited that when we got back to Reading, we went to the Turtle and stayed up until gone 5am. I was in no fit state to be awake, let alone to time travel back to 1666 to investigate the cause of the Great Fire of London. I wasn't going to let that stop me, though, nor would I later let walking into a doorframe five minutes in stop me, although I did have to sit down for a few minutes to stop the room spinning. Thankfully, the wonderfully designed set included some very soothing atmospheric, dim lighting, which not only helped set a really immersive scene, but also worked wonders for my headache.

The room itself is very intricately designed and the tasks were interesting and challenging. Top marks to our host, Verity, who was fantastic - really welcoming, stayed in character throughout and made the whole experience even more enjoyable. There were a few times when the tasks were a smidgen linear, so a group of six might be a bit much for that room, depending on how well they work together, but as a group of three it was pretty much perfect for us. We left laughing having had a lovely afternoon. Really looking forward to trying out one of the other rooms, hopefully having had slightly more sleep.

I was really excited to play at TimeTrap after hearing such good things. It didn't disappoint.
We played Pudding Lane and Curiouser and Curiouser.
Both games were on point. Theming and detail was incredible.
Pudding Lane is just amazing for taking you back in time. Both rooms had us thinking, we were silly in some of our mistakes but both rooms had some wonderful moments. I wish we'd played Curiouser with our younger daughter too, I believe she would have loved it.
Hints were given perfectly by our hosts, we had Tegan for Curioser and Curiouser and Verity for Pudding Lane. Both were fantastic, we felt so welcomed from turning up till we left the building.
Hospitality was second to none, from helping us with our booking (which was a surprise) to hosting our games.
TimeTrap are an exceptional company.

We recently did another local escape room and the experience was absolutely dreadful, so we were in need of something that would restore our faith in escape rooms! Timetrap did not disappoint. We were given a really warm welcome, and the room itself blew us away. The theming is incredible, the build is superb and everything feels really solid when you interact with it. The game flowed really well - it was linear and clear where you had to focus your energy, and we loved that the hints aren't given by someone over a speaker but in the game environment itself, which makes it much more immersive. The torches and digital notepad were nice touches. We didn't quite make it out in time, but that didn't affect our enjoyment. Timetrap has nailed the end-to-end customer experience, with little touches like the badges, photos, and an online link to see how the room was built. The fact that they built Pudding Lane using the same techniques as in olden times, with proper historical research behind the story means these guys stand head and shoulders above other escape rooms. Their passion shines through. Thanks to Eleanor for looking after us. We will 100% be back!
