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.
- We used over 50L of paint to spruce up the former building site office into the time travelling facility it is today.
- Our building, 11 Friar Street, has a long and interesting history. Believed to have been built in the late 18th Century, it has been home to a maltster, a wine merchants, a surgeons, a dentists, an architects, and, our personal favourite – the potato department for the ministry of food! I bet the 18th Century maltster, Mr Buncombe, would have never thought it would be home to an escape room…
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.
