UNBOXD Visits Budapest, Stepping Forward into Escape Gaming's Past | Book Now

We have a very special autumn adventure ahead: this September, Unboxd visits Budapest, Hungary — Ground Zero for Europe's escape gaming explosion.

It's impossible not to reflect on Hungary's impact on the global live entertainment industry. In 2011, Hungarian Attila Gyurkovics opened Europe's first live room escape game — Budapest's Parapark.

London soon followed: in 2012 two Hungarians, Atti Nagy and Csaba Vinkler, launched HintHunt near Euston station and from there the world watched a multi-million dollar global juggernaut emerge.

While we won't be visiting Parapark during this trip – their rooms are considered heirloom pieces now – there's plenty of excellent modern games to keep us occupied.

Come along as we explore everything the ancient, beautiful city of Budapest has to offer – old and new alike.
