Dublin Escape – Espionage – Dublin, Ireland

It’s so nice to be in a city where wandering around will allow you to happen upon an escape room. This is how we found Dublin Escape. We stopped in and were happy to find that a room was free at the time. Thus began our escape from Espionage. This room really spoke to our way of thinking, and we got out very quickly with no hints. It was one of those times, I can only say, we were just “ON.” See below for the full review.

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.

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.

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.

E-Exit – Heaven & Hell – Budapest

⍟⍟⍟⍟⍟. Highly recommended by EscapeRoomers. This was the fifth room of the Blitz, and third in a row from E-Exit. This room was just going to be opened to the public the next week, but E-Exit offered to let us give it a try. Thanks David! Overall it was a very original and interactive room. Completely themed from beginning to end, from dying to death to hell to heaven to reanimation. See below for the full review.

Mystique Room – Pharaoh’s Burial Chamber – Budapest

⍟⍟. Not recommended by EscapeRoomers. This was the second room of the Blitz, and really slowed the rush after such a great experience with ESC Exitgame. The set was pretty good, but the staff was pretty terrible. Gave us “hints” when we didn’t need them. Didn’t follow our progress, and had unused clues that were either fake or old. See below for the full review.

ESC Exitgame – Budapest

⍟⍟⍟⍟⍟. Highly recommended by EscapeRoomers. This was the first of the Blitz. Overall fun room with a variety of puzzles, not too much scavenging. Lots of stuff in the rooms, but not enough to overwhelm or confuse the progression. Great staff, and a fun room. See below for the full review.
