Escape Outdoors

Professor Pooch’s Adventure is an outdoor puzzle game that takes place around Reading town centre and is suitable for both family and all-adult groups.

TimeTrap’s very own Professor Pooch and her secret puppy pals have set eight challenges that combine what can be found at physical locations around the town, with a specially designed booklet that guides you through the adventure. You may find yourself visiting spots that you didn’t know existed!

By solving each puzzle you’ll uncover the name of one of Pooch’s pals – collect all eight names to conclude the adventure via our website! You’ll also be able to get help from TimeTrap HQ during your experience, if needed.



Professor Pooch’s Adventure is suited to teams of 1-6+ people, but we’d recommend 2-4 people. You can take as long as you want and even stop for lunch, but you should allow at least two hours. The walking distance is 1.8 miles and you’ll require a device with a navigation app, such as Google Maps, and a pen or pencil.

The price is £25 for the whole team and this gets you your puzzle booklet, containing all instructions, directions and content, and access to TimeTrap HQ for help, if needed. You can purchase online to be sent out via Royal Mail (£3.50 P&P), or you can pop into our Reading town centre venue to purchase and collect straight away (but please call or email in advance to check we’ll be available).
