Live escape rooms is a relatively new trend which takes the concept of the classic point-and-click computer games into the real world, with the very first of these being opened in Silicon Valley in 2006. Since then, live escape rooms have grown considerably in both popularity and number and are now one of the most sought-after attractions and activities in many of the largest European towns and cities. Hungary, in particular Budapest, is believed to have been where the European trend began and is still considered to be the nerve-centre of European live escape rooms, with a wealth of challenging rooms to choose from.
No! While the doors are in fact locked, there is a panic button which will allow you, or a member of your team, to leave the room at any time if you feel it necessary. The clock does not stop until you have solved the final puzzle or entered the exit code.
Professor Linden has been developing his designs for cold fusion but has mysteriously disappeared from his lab. Can you help find out what has happened to him and stop the process of cold fusion reaching its explosive conclusion?
Our mini escape room is a taster for those that are unfamiliar with the concept, giving you only 30 minutes to solve the puzzles and leave the room. Our full-length room, Professor Linden’s Cold Fusion is more challenging and requires a full 60 minutes to solve. Remember to arrive 10 minutes before your booking to allow for instructions.

No! You do not need to be a genius to complete the challenge and escape from IQrooms. Some of the tasks can be as simple as lifting a cup and finding a key underneath.
The ideal size for a team is 3-5 members, though it is possible to complete an IQroom with a minimum of 2 people. Some of the challenges require more than one person to physically execute, unless you are an octopus. However, there will be fewer members to divide the tasks between and this could cost you time.
