“Interesting experience but Confusing”

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.

An interesting idea but we found it to be impossibly complex and as per the manager, only 1/3rd of teams are able to solve to end. I really doubt that number. Would be phenomenal if a new player can do it. There were no instructions to start with and you just enter a room and start. We could figure out some of the clues or guess some but for a small team to be able to do the entire thing in 1 hour is a real challenge. The manager although was quite helpful but they should add some instructions and make it more intuitive.

Never done anything like this before and it did not disappoint. The game was exciting for the full hour. There were just 2 of us and we thought we would be at a disadvantage but we managed to escape with seconds to spare! Manager helped a couple of times along the way which helped us to progress. A must for anyone who likes to solve problems! Thoroughly enjoyable.

Me and my gf enjoyed every second of this beautifully designed puzzle! The game starts as soon as you enter which really helps fuel the feeling of being trapped and having to figure your way out.

The puzzles were fun and challenging and we just barely didn't finish the entire thing.

Compared to other escape puzzles this one was also very cheap, especially if you're a couple bc of the 40% discount leading to a deal of 6000Huf!

All in all a must do for everyone and a super cool experience!

We did claustroplila since we had done a similar game in Prague (we are now hooked). It was a lot of fun. Only issue was that we were the first customers of the day and showed up 10 minutes before and the employee was late! It was a little frustrating but we quickly forgot once we got into the game.
