Exit Point – Rabbit Hole – Budapest

⍟⍟⍟⍟⍟. Highly Recommended by EscapeRoomers. Last room of the Blitz, and one of the top 2 rooms of the whole trip! Fun to end on such a high note. This was a fantastically decorated and designed room. It was challenging, original, and fun to play. A great variety of puzzles left us wanting to try the other Exit Point rooms. See below for the full review.

Locked Escape Game – The Bank Job – Budapest

⍟⍟1/2. Not recommended by EscapeRoomers. Day 2 of the Blitz, room 5 of the day, and the second back-to-back with Locked. This was not that much fun, and a bit of a let down after doing Surgery only minutes before. A good variety of puzzles, but the flow wasn’t very intuitive. Most of the puzzles didn’t seem to fit with the theme. When asking for hints, the employee did not respond for a few minutes, and had no idea where we were. See below for the full review.

Locked Escape Game – Surgery – Budapest

⍟⍟⍟⍟. Recommended by EscapeRoomers. Day 2 of the Blitz, room 4 of the day. This was a fun room, with interesting props, a variety of puzzles, some we hadn’t seen before, and had a great flow. Overall it was fun to play, and led us to try another room with Locked immediately after, which was a disappointment. See below for the full review.

Gozsdu Mission – Maffia – Budapest

⍟⍟⍟⍟. Recommended by EscapeRoomers. Day 2 of the Blitz, room 3 of the day. This is a well-polished room. While there was a good variety of puzzles, in the quest for variety, some felt inappropriate for an escape room. This is a 75 minute room, which was good, because we wouldn’t have gotten out in 60 minutes. Overall it was fun to play, and I would try another Gozsdu Mission in the future. See below for the full review.

Paniq Room – Lost 2 – Budapest

⍟⍟⍟⍟. Recommended by EscapeRoomers. Day 2 of the Blitz, second room, and done right after Saw with Paniq Room. Rushing through to make it out in time, Lost was more fun than Saw. There were some innovative tricks, interactive props, a great variety of puzzles, and overall fun to play. See below for the full review.

Paniq Room – Saw – Budapest

⍟⍟⍟. Somewhat Recommended by EscapeRoomers. Day 2 of the Blitz, and the first room of day. There were some major issues with Paniq Room this morning, almost resulting in missing our first two rooms of the day. In the end, it worked out. This was an interesting room with some fun design, but overall it felt worn down. See below for the full review.

What I Learned From Doing 8 Escape Rooms in 10 Hours

Believe it or not, there are lessons to be learned from escape room marathons. When EscapeRoomers J and K booked 12 escape rooms across 2 days for the Budapest Blitz, we questioned the sanity of such an idea. Afterall, Budapest is a wonderful city. Why were we committing ourselves to spending 12 hours out of the 36-hour trip locked inside a series of rooms?

Here is how Day 1 was laid out.

Claustrophilia – Voodoo – Budapest

⍟⍟⍟⍟. Recommended by EscapeRoomers. This was the 8th room of the Blitz, and the last room of Day One. This room was fun and did a great job tying together the theme with decorations and puzzles. However, it was just too quick. They need to add another puzzle or four. Overall, it was fun, and I’d like to try Claustrophilia’s other Budapest room, Wicklewood. See below for the full review.

The Bomb – Mind Quest – Budapest

⍟⍟⍟. Give or take recommendation by EscapeRoomers. This was the 7th room of the Blitz, and second in a row from MindQuest. It had some interesting parts, but it was kind of all over the place. There were some pretty major logical gaps in solving certain puzzles. Overall, I would say skip it, unless you are already at MindQuest, and want to do another low-priced room. See below for the full review.

Mind Quest – Matrix – Budapest

⍟⍟⍟1/2. Recommended by EscapeRoomers. Low cost escape room company with three rooms in one location. This was the sixth room of the Blitz. It was fun overall, but from the top to the bottom, this fell right in the middle of the Budapest escape rooms visited during the Blitz. It was a great price for two people at just about $20 total. See below for the full review.
