Awesome!

Wow. We first did "In The Clutches of The Secret Police" and were very impressed. The clues were more creative than we are used to in English escape rooms. Everything in the room really was used at some point. There were only two of us and we did at one point get really stuck (we had just missed something that in hindsight was pretty obvious!) and sat getting frustrated but the host did call us in the end and offer a hint and then we were sorted and got out just in time. The tasting/smelling element was a great and unusual idea although as it's a common allergen I probably wouldn't have included peanuts and peanut flavours; luckily I did not eat them!

We were so impressed that we came back two days later to do the other room, Treasure of Jánošík and absolutely loved this room. So unusual, interesting and challenging; we could not fault any element of it. We've been telling people back home in England about it, especially the clue with the mannequin L :') :')

English escape rooms are going to feel a little bit boring now!

Good but difficult!
Oct 2019 • Friends
Went as a group of 4, solved the 70 minute puzzle in a time of 68 minutes, and that was with a few hints! A very exciting, but one of the more difficult escape games I have done. It was interesting as it involved tasting things as well, which if I'm honest didn't work entirely, but other than that the game was well prepared and we really enjoyed it.

Fun intro to the city
Oct 2019
The City Game is kind of like a self-guided city tour along with a mystery and team-building/problem-solving. A great first activity for our vacation and an introduction to Bratislava.

Great Escape Room. It was funny and adventurous. It is easier than STB and more technically created.

Escape room

Had a fantastic time at Brainteaslava the other day. We were a party of 4, three of us had done an escape room before but the other one had not. We found it quite challenging as there were different aspects that we had not encountered before which was really good. We managed to escape in 57 minutes. Would definitely recommend

Secret Police Escape Room
Aug 2019
My friends and I recently did the Secret Police Escape Room. We were looking forward to it but were quite disappointed. My friends are veterans of escape rooms (they do them in every city they visit) and said this was one of the worst they've been to. One of the props didn't work, which prevented us from completing one of the clues. Also, there were so many items in the rooms that had nothing to do with the escape room, so there was a lot of wasted time on things. We also asked for help from the gamemaster several times, and it took about 5 minutes for her to respond, so we lost time on that. There were times when all 5 of us were just sitting there because we were stuck. When she finally responded, it was very difficult to hear her. Also, it was 32 degrees Celsius and the room had no ventilation or air conditioning - it was very uncomfortable.

We completed an escape room in 40 minutes in Brno, so we don't have any issues with figuring out clues. We completed that one in record time.

Unfortunately, this escape room had poor planning. I recommend checking all of the props, removing the excessive ones, and giving clear instructions in the beginning. We didn't even know when to take the blindfolds off. Also, I recommend putting the laminated paper with the mission at the first place you'd look....and put a sign on the radio not to touch the buttons.

Hi, we are really sorry that you did not enjoy our game. Not sure what you meaned by not working prop that prevented you to continue. We are sorry about the problem with one prop. It worked perfectly for the group before, so we did not have anything to fix before your game. Unfortunately as the thematic props are original and quite old, from tíme to time some problem happens and we are sorry for that. However as you managed to solve that quest your original way, we are not sure if you meant this but we are not aware of any other technical issue during your game. Actually nearly all of the things in the room are useful for the game. Even the ones that looks just thematic are mostly used in puzzles as we tried to connect puzzles with a theme as much as possible. One of them is also the radio, what is a reason there are not no touch signs(actually we try to avoid them at all as there are weakening the atmosphere). If someone has a problem with using the radio, there is also a clear manual to use it. It is not true that gamemaster was ignoring your asking for a help several times. There was one gamemaster alocated exclusively for your group. The truth is that one time during the game she was disturbed with some other guests when you just asked for a hint and you had to wait 2 minutes. Sorry for that. It is not true that there is no ventilation in the rooms. There is a window in each of them. About the instructions - the main one is just "escape the room". The rest is up to you. We prefer not to give instructions which quests you should solve. To find out what is actually your quest is a part of it. Yes, it makes the game harder, but still 10-15% players can finish it without any hint. Congratulation to your success in escape in brno, but actually every room is different and a fact that you make a record time in one room does not mean, that you will now beat every room ;) Anyway, according to our money back guarantee we offered you by email to give you your money back. We know that it can not change your feelings from the game, but it is the best way how we can show you that we are really sorry and that we will give our best to minimize the number of groups that are not enjoying the game enough. Wish you good luck with other games! Emil Haas Owner of Brainteaselava - more than escape room
