The Drunk Tank
GO SOX! The game last night was wicked awesome, but I don’t remember what happened after the game. Was there something in my drink? How did we end up in this cell? Something doesn’t feel right…

I should have just gone home. Mahjong? I didn’t even know how to spell it until tonight. I can’t believe I gambled away everything. They locked me in here and going after my family. I need to get out of here and warn them!

What a cool Airbnb find! This well-furnished tent is as close to camping that I’m ever going to get. We heard that a couple people went missing last week. Seems a bit odd. Wait… Did you hear that?

Strobe special effects in use (but can be turned off upon request). Creepy storyline.

Expect to feel awed.
Trapology is an all out production and immersive experience. All stops were pulled and no expenses were spared. Surprise after surprise will be thrown at you and just when you think nothing more can catch you off guard, BAM. I’ve done a few escape rooms before but this was head and shoulders above all others on a level of its own. The creativity and work that went into the game becomes more and more evident as you progress.
Expect to feel dumb. At multiple points in the game, I questioned my common sense, and then my ability to think critically, and then my college education, etc. You get the point. This is definitely not an easy escape. There is also no room for slackers. Every person will be busy alternating between the two stages of 1. running around frenetically and trying to avoid crashing into equally frazzled teammates and 2. debating if the risk of permanent damage outweighs the desire to bang your head repeatedly against the wall.
Expect to pee your pants. Not for the faint of heart. That’s all I will say.
Expect to feel good even if you don’t escape. Because the experience was so well done and thoroughly curated that I didn’t need to make it out in time to still marvel at all the surprises and puzzles.
This place is pretty awesome. Whatever you picture it is going to be, it’s way better once you’re in. The time and effort put into the creativity of this game is above and beyond. Don’t expect it to be easy, you have to seriously put your thinking caps on. I felt so dumb at some points. Completely worth it though, even if you can’t do it in the hour you will have a ton of fun trying and then laugh when you find out what steps you missed.
Without a doubt, Trapology is the most fun I’ve had in 2016! I’m not usually one for puzzles so a live escape challenge sounded like it was going to be more of a nightmare.
Once I was submersed in the experience I had an absolute blast. The game itself was different than anything I’ve experienced.
I initially thought there was no way I’d benefit my team in any way but as we went along and I learned that most of the puzzle designs were based on observation and common sense, I was able to solve puzzles along with the rest of my team and help us solve the “Drunk Tank”.
If you’re looking for a fun time in Boston, Trapology needs to be at the top of your list.
I’m now addicted and can’t wait to go back and try the rest of their puzzles!
By far the best “escape” challenge in the area, and my friends and I have done nearly all of them.
Some of the differences:
– Beautiful location overlooking the Common, and a nice lounge area to hang out/play games in while you wait. Other companies are headquartered in stark warehouses and make you wait in a hallway.
– Superior puzzle design; they were mentally challenging but definitely solvable with enough brainpower. Some companies make you draw non-intuitive conclusions to solve the puzzle (ones that make you think, “How were we EVER supposed to figure that out?”), but these were perfectly stimulating.
– Nice “X-factors” in the Drunk Tank, which I won’t reveal but they do make the experience more entertaining 🙂
– Better hint strategy (3 hints, use ’em when you need ’em) vs. getting them when the host thinks you need em.
– Low success rate (11-17%); some may find this frustrating, but we love a good challenge! It wouldn’t be fun if it was easy.
