Founded in June 2016, TimeTrap Escape Rooms are Reading’s award winning, 5 star immersive escape games provider. Both graduates of the University of Reading, Andrew and Katie (the lovely looking people above), wanted to provide the town with something tangible and experiential. Being massive escape room enthusiasts themselves and now clocking in at over 100 rooms each, they wanted to provide experiences with high quality aesthetics, immersive storylines and fun puzzles. And so it was, TimeTrap was born.
