We went to Budapest for a long weekend on 8th November. This was probably one of the pricier activities we did - they charge by Team so the more people you have in the team (up to 5 max) the cheaper it works out. But it was such a great experience and totally worth the price! We couldn't stop talking about it afterwards, the puzzles are very well thought out and just the right level of difficulty. I can totally relate to the computer game but it is so different when you are trying to get out of a locked room in real life!

Go try it! *You get hints as well if not on the right track so you won't end up sitting in the middle of the room pondering for 60 minutes*

We went to Budapest on 15th Nov for 2 nights for my sisters 30th Birthday. We wanted to do something different on our trip so turned to trip advisor.
TRAP was rated 1st place for activities so we looked in to it. The concept seemed very interesting and something completely different to anything I'd done before so we decided to book up and give it a go.

We had 7 people in our party so booked both rooms at the same time (max of 4 per room)
When we arrived, the guy was straight to the point and told us we will be locked in the rooms and we have to get out. I'm quite claustrophobic so I was a little wary of what was going to happen, but as soon as the door closed on us, I forgot about everything and just wanted to find our way out and got well in to the spirit of puzzle solving.

The whole experience was amazing and really well planned and thought out.
Thankfully, we found our way out after 54 mins and the best time was 46 mins so you do get your monies worth!

The whole party had a brilliant experience and wished we could do it all over again.

I would recommend this to anyone who visits Budapest,
It was one of the best activities I've ever done!!

Really good fun!
We booked 2 rooms as there was 7 of us (4 in one, 3 in the other).
It was a great experience, and we all couldn't stop talking about it afterwards, so much so that we wished we'd booked it again to try each others rooms out.
Definitely recommend a visit.

This was the best thing we did on an already excellent trip. Just such a great idea, and typifies the sensibility you'll find in Budapest's "ruin bars" - making something amazing out of very little budget, but lots of effort and imagination.

Don't read too many of the reviews in case of spoilers - just go and lock yourself into a room and work out what you have to next!

My girlfriend (28) and I (26) visited TRAP due to the great reviews on here. It was truly an amazing experience.

We were a little worried that it may be too simple as we are both keen puzzlers and thought it may be designed for kids. However, the difficulty is spot-on. With an hour to get out you will definitely be pressed for time - in fact we didn't quite make it. The owner will give you clues if you get really stuck, but he has clearly thought about how to word them without giving too much away.

The puzzles were excellently designed, testing various skills (logic puzzles, physical games, riddles and more). There are also a lot of red herrings in the room - purely serving as a distraction, but simultaneously adding to the complexity and overall experience.

After we left, we couldn't stop talking about it. If we had more time in Budapest I have no doubt we would've also taken a stab at room 2.

It isn't a particularly cheap attraction, especially if you go as a couple. However, please don't let this put you off. It is a truly unique experience that really shouldn't be missed.
