TimeTrap Escape Rooms Reading

‘Our visit to Station X was our first escape room experience and it was amazing! It’s totally immersive – every single tiny detail has been considered and is so authentic. We genuinely felt as if we had spent an hour in the 1940’s trying to detect a spy. We would recommend this experience to anyone and everyone – thank you so much TimeTrap for such a fun and immersive experience – we can’t wait to come back!’

Station X Master No Background


The staff at top secret WW2 code-breaking centre, Bletchley Park, have become suspicious of a spy in their midst, culminating in the discovery of an incriminating letter from the spy which reveals that they’ll be leaving on the 9.05pm train from Bletchley Station to London. The letter tells of several German decrypts the spy has stolen and concealed within the station, ready to flee with. The heads at the park have intercepted the 9.05 train and found seven suspects boarding, whom they have taken back to HQ. They need to find out who the spy is and make sure all stolen decrypts are recovered.

Secretly drafted in by the heads of Bletchley Park with Professor Potch’s help, you will be assuming the identities of hard-at-work Bletchley Park staff to solve this crime; reveal the spy and retrieve the stolen decrypts!

What is a Versus Escape Game?

Station X is Reading’s first and only versus escape room experience. This means you can go head-to-head against friends, family or colleagues, adding a bit of friendly competition to your escape proceedings. We have built two identical rooms, with a 2-5 person capacity in each and, when versus mode is chosen, includes elements of interactivity and competition between the two. To play as a head-to-head, simply book Station X, Room 1 and Room 2 for the same time. As with all of our experiences, a member of staff is assigned to each individual room and pricing is priced per person, per room.

Don’t fancy this? Don’t worry, Station X has also been designed to be played as a stand-alone game, with the versus elements removed. Just book your team into either Room 1 or Room 2 and you won’t be playing against anyone else.
