Recommended length of visit: <1 hour
Owner description: Exit game? Room escape? Puzzle solving game? Team building? Having fun with others? The love of enclosure. And of course the catarsis what you feel when you are already out. This is the transplantion of the well known adventure and point & click games into the reality, where the searching, the puzzle solving and the excitement remains, but the experience becomes touchable and the place is real. You need to find real objects, combine and use them with which across the dozens of logical and ability games you get nearer to the final puzzle which gives you the key to escape. You have one hour in this environment closed from everyday life, where the ancient surviving and problem solving instincts inside of you can revive. You need to work in team, watch every details, every hint in the rooms to accomplish the game. Prepare yourself, we created the puzzles in a way that you need to use your brain capacity on the maximum level, to push your limits and of course to feel all right behind the padlocks.

We were visiting Budapest with our family (4, 8, 11 yrs old kids, my husband and I) and I decided to plan and try something different. This surely was and everyone loved it! Everyone could participate, even the youngest one - and we almost managed to solve it! I definitely recommend!

We did the Wicklewood course at Claustrophilia, and had a blast. The puzzle is set up to make you use a lot of different skills to get from one room to another. It was pretty difficult (we came up just short), but the Claustrophilia worker at the other end of the intercom helped us out whenever we got stuck, which made it a lot more fun. I definitely recommend this to anyone visiting Budapest. We went as a couple, but I'm sure it would also be fantastic for a family or group of friends.

Arranged to visit this place following the review from tripadvisor. We were rather lost at the beginning but soon got the idea and had the best fun ever. Can truly recommend. Was an amazing experience!

We had a group of 8, with 4 people attempting the Voodoo room and another 4 in the Wickle Wood room. My team was in the Wicklewood room and we managed to complete with 5 minutes to spare.

It is amazing fun with lots of puzzles and amazing attention to detail within the game.

Would strongly recommend especially being only 10000HUF / £30 per room.

Let me just say first of all that we failed miserably. We were four adults and two kids (13 and 10 years old). Based on the reviews in Trip Advisor we chose to sign up for this given we were traveling with two kids. We were in the voodoo room and were frustrated in the anteroom. We had to get help from the magic Wilkie talkie (which couldn't always hear very well). We also found that the locks in the second room were somewhat tricky and we couldn't get the numbers to move. The person on the Wilkie talkie had to appear and show us how to use it properly (not the same as the ones in US). My 13 year old was the saver of the day he figured out one of the more difficult pieces. So, having a teenager on your team that plays a lot of video games helps because the adults felt kind of dumb a lot of the time.
