We heard of MindQuest from Heidi and Alan, our friends from Spain who are also currently travelling. They said it was really good, so we headed there.
The first time it was just Adam, Katie, Mum and I, we split up into two groups Adam and I and mum and Katie. There were 3 different quests or puzzles to pick from. There was The Diamond Heist, Mission : Matrix or The Bomb. Katie and mum chose The Diamond Heist and we chose The Bomb.
I won’t give you any pictures or details about the puzzle in case you would wish to do it some time. All I can say is that they are amazing !! Really really clever ideas to make the puzzle really clever and fun. Great place to g, it’s easier in a bigger group as we found out !!! You can do groups of 2 or 3-5 people. The more people there are the more pairs of hands there are.
We went another time a few days later my mum was away working this time so it was Adam, Katie, Dad and I this time we did one big team. The first time neither team managed their puzzle. But this time we completed the puzzle, we obviously did the Mission : Matrix because neither one of us had already done that one. We survived but with very little time remaining.
They also have a Facebook page. At the end of your puzzle they take a photo of your team and you can find it on their Facebook page they only put the photos of the teams once a month so they do the April group and still haven’t published our photos yet, they do all the May photos at the end of the month. So we should be in this one.
Once you have completed your puzzle they have a memory wall that you can write on and sign if you wish.
My opinion :
I really really enjoyed it, I would class it in the best things I have done this past year !! If you are in Budapest it is really worth going to especially if you are a group.
