Founded in June 2016, TimeTrap Escape Rooms are Reading’s 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 (now clocking in at 50 rooms each) they wanted to provide experiences with high quality aesthetics, immersive storylines and fun puzzles. And so it was, TimeTrap was born.


TimeTrap’s first appearance came at the 2016 Reading Fringe Festival with our first game, ‘The Dungeon’. Our debut couldn’t have gone better, securing a five-star review from GetReading, as well as being featured on BBC Radio Berkshire.

Following this we opened for six weeks in Great Expectations Hotel and Bar in Reading town centre with our second game, ‘Dickens’ Final Chapter’.


Following the success of these two pop-up events, the team decided to make the move to a permanent venue, opening in June 2017 and adding something completely different to Reading’s leisure activities.



TimeTrap Escape Rooms is located on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd floors of 11 Friar Street, above Coral Bookmakers and opposite Walkabout Bar, accessed via Wiston Terrace. Being in such a great location means that we are surrounded by brilliant bars, restaurants and shopping, as well as being close to key transport links.
