This past weekend three of us traveled from Kyiv, Ukraine, for a long weekend of escape questing in Budapest, Hungary. There is a bit of a debate about whether the origin of the escape room is Budapest or Japan, but regardless there is definitely a well-developed escape room culture in the former.
First of all, a shout out to our blogger predecessors, The Logic Escapes Me, whose impressions and reviews we used to plan our weekend. You'll find below our own impressions of the 9 rooms we were able to fit in during our 2 days in Budapest.

We hope that someone can find our experiences to be helpful in planning their own escape room getaway in Budapest! There are some great rooms, but we still have yet to find the perfect blend of immersion, puzzles, and fun.
