In case you’re out to step up your game with a high-level challenge, the Spaceship and the Wizard world await.

We have arrived at the last Budapest escape room of our list. Gozsdu Mission doesn’t fall behind a bit, as it provides endless (alright, alright… up to 90 min) fun with its well designed and varied challenges. As for themes, they don’t bring anything new to the table, but let’s admit, Budapest has so many escape rooms that according to the law of large numbers it’s inevitable to have similarities. They have a Mafia Mission, a Prison Mission, a Wizard Mission, and a White Mission, where you need to find clues in an “empty” room. It’s worth visiting them for some birthday fun as they offer a special birthday deal, along with a permanent student discount. They also do hen and stag parties, so if you’d like to have some quality fun before getting smashed, this might be just your venue. Language barriers are non-existent, and they do accept credit cards.
