We are UnTrappable

The Trapology Research Institute was founded by a group called the “Untrappables”.

The Trapology Research Institute HQ is based in Boston, MA. However, TRI placed nine covert research stations around the world to conduct experiments.

Focus on Psychology and Experiences

TRI is dedicated to creating social experiments in the form of custom interactive experiences, corporate team building activities, and most famously – escape games.

ESCAPE GAMES @ TRAPOLOGY

Let us lock you up

Across the street from the Boston Common at 177 Tremont St are five award-winning Trapology Escape Games that we have designed and built. Trapology is Boston’s largest escape game facility and we’ve heard that we are the most challenging.

We’ve designed the experiences to be inclusive so that it’s a great fit for a date night to see if he’s good under pressure, a family excursion to lock up your mother-in-law, or a company team building where yelling at your boss is acceptable.

CORPORATE EXPERIENCES

Cannolians, A historical puzzle tour around Boston’s Freedom Trail

80 attendees from 5 different cities across North America would converge to attend an annual conference. Trapology was hired to create a historical based puzzle tour that hit hot spots along the Freedom Trail.

No Wake, A Cape Cod Murder Mystery

“Give them a challenge. These are smart people”, said our client in one of her first e-mails.
“Are you sure?”
“Yes. They are 150 actuaries and they’re brilliant.”
“Okaaaaay. Let’s do this.”

Trapology designed a 2-hour, multi-location, murder puzzle event for 150 actuaries during their Annual Summit. This custom experience was driven by 9 actors. The game incorporated inside jokes, actuarial puns, and all sorts of twists and turns designed to stump these math geniuses.
