The Virus

The story

It’s the year 1995. Dr. Karl Friedmann is head of the Virusology department at the TriOptimum research institute. After some failures in his carrer, the board of the institute finally decided to dismiss him. Hearing the news, dr. Friedmann came up with an evil plan to recover his job: he created a deadly virus and spread it all over the world so that, after a while, he would release the antidote himself and pose as the savior of humanity.

However, due to an accident, the plan went wrong in an instant. The doctor got infected with his own virus and died before he could release the antidote.

Now, things aren’t looking well. Every last person on the planet is infected and the virus will become active in an hour and start killing people. The antidote is still in the late doctor’s lab. You need to enter the doctor’s lab, retrieve the antidote and get out of there in time to save yourself and everyone else on planet Earth, otherwise we’re all doomed!

  • Very satisfied

    "As our 12th visit at escape rooms around Europe, we (me and my wife) came with big expectations to Bucharest #1 escape room on trip advisor (the Virus) and I can gladly say that it was perfect! Vlad, the owner, was very welcoming, the riddles were challenging and claver, we got out in the last minute, very satisfied. Highly recommended. Enjoy!"

    "We played the Virus escape room and were really happy with the whole thing! We were warmly welcomed and got right into the game. It was awesome! We would definitely play another room at Trolls!!!"


  • Smartest and best escape room ever

    "Honestly this was the most creative room I have ever been in, it's so much more than just theatrics, there's so much thought put into this and so much effort it all truly pays off. Vlad is the friendliest dude I've ever met in my life and he's so kind and helpful I had such a great experience with him and his girlfriend and I can't wait to go back. He also speaks english so well which is SUCH a bonus."


  • Virus room is awesome

    "First time at an escape room and it was awesome. We were warned that Virus is a bit difficult but managed to escape in 40:11 and had a great time doing it. The puzzles were really cool and entertaining. Will go back for the Bike Room."


  • Great Experience!

    "We came to the room after reading the reviews here, having high expectations. We weren't dissapointed ! We played the Virus room, which was an excellent room, with great, fun and logical riddles and a nice backstory. Our operator Clara was very nice and made the experience so much better. Absolutley recommended! 5 out of 5."


  • Great experience

    "We tried the Virus room and for sure we will come back for Bike Room. The room has a logical flow and the puzzles are really smart. We had a great time and it is one of the best escape rooms we have tried so far."
