Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: Cryptex is Prague's most challenging escape game, where you don't need physical fitness, only brain power. Don't take only our word for it! Just accept the challenge. If you get out without help and cheating your game was free. Find yourself in a basement room that looks like no one touched it in decades. Suddenly the door closes behind you, and you are suddenly in a treasure hunt for hidden riches and a quest to escape. Get in a skin of a early 20th century gangster. You and your companions just arrived back to your secret office after an exhausting year long business trip. But as soon as you get in the door your secretary storms out and leaves you with a ticking bomb to deal with. But there is a chance to get out of this mess...

Did this with my husband and teenage son. Mindmaze and Trap were both booked several days in advance but since Cryptex is newer, we had better luck getting in on short notice. We did the bomb scenario and it was challenging and fun. We did not defuse the bomb in time but we had a good time. I would definitely recommend this.

What an experience!!! Very challenging but achievable. Staff were fantastic entertaining and a little help when needed. Great break to sight seeing and walking around and a must for anyone of any age. Recommend this to all.

We had a lot of fun trying to solve the clues and find the key. The monitor guy was pretty helpful if we looked like we were going way off track. But there are some really obscure clues that I don't think we would have ever figured out. But like I said, we had fun trying!

Just EXCELLENT! For our second visit to Prague, I wanted to do something different.....and it was!!!
Just perfect for having fun, using your brain and working as a team.

My girlfriend and I chose the Bomb and we had so much fun.

If you come to Prague you definitely need to do it. It made our mini trip so cool.

We are back home and we still think about the experience!

...and the guy who welcomed us and explained us the game was lovely. Very very nice guy.

Search the treasure, we've spent a very exciting moment, one hour of pure pleasure.

Share this experience with your friend or your workmates.

Don't hesitate to ask question to the friendly guy ;) it will help you because it is quite hard !

Be careful it is addictive ....
