TRAPT FAQ

NEW TO TRAPT? HERE ARE OUR MOST COMMON QUESTIONS ABOUT TRAPT AND ESCAPE ROOMS!

 

HOW DOES THAT ‘STAY-SAFE-AT-HOME’ SERIES WORK?

Trapt Bar & Escape Rooms is excited to launch limited bookings for our experiences adapted especially for connections from home. Your team can connect to our mages online who will act as your hands, eyes and ears from a land faraway. With the help of an online almanac, your team can experience the thrill and challenge of Trapt from home.

WHEN WILL TRAPT BE OPEN AS NORMAL AGAIN?

Trapt is currently planning to re-open from the 24th of June 2020 with limited operations. Things will look a little bit different when we return and there are a number of new practices that have been introduced to ensure everyone’s safety. Based on health advice, Trapt Bar will remain closed for the forseeable future.

WHAT HAPPENS IF TRAPT CAN’T RE-OPEN? I HAVE A BOOKING!

Trapt will continue to provide gift certificates or refunds to all those affected by the closure of the business based on health advice and guidance.

WHAT HAPPENS IN AN ESCAPE ROOM?

Our experiences are designed to be fun, intellectually challenging and social games where your team has to solve a mystery or complete a mission before time runs out! At TRAPT, you’re never truly locked in and never truly need to escape – immerse yourself in our stories and complete series of challenges and puzzles in order to make your way out! Puzzles may be as simple as finding a hidden object, listening carefully to a coded message or communicating with your team mates to resolve a secret clue.
