Overview

Timed Trap is a real life, breathtaking, race against the time to find your way to freedom. In this rush hour, you will be trapped in a room with 60 minutes on the clock in which you must solve puzzles and use your initiative to crack codes with your team players. We offer three unique themed rooms, designed for groups of 2-6 players. Have you got what it takes to escape the trap?!?

I’ve done quite a few escape rooms over the past couple years and this was probably my least favourite. When we first walked in, all the entrance doors to all the rooms were wide open which, although not a huge problem, sort of spoiled the...More

Took my in-laws to do Treasure Theft. Was a bit nervous they wouldn't enjoy it but Treasure Theft transpired to be a really innovative room, lots of really imaginative puzzles and solutions not involving any padlocks! Would definitely recommend.
