Escape Game FAQs 2017-06-08T14:25:18+00:00

Escape Games usually contain some kind of jailbreak. But that is not the core of it. Basically, these games are played to forget about the real world for one hour together with a group of like-minded people, to dive into a scenario of your own choice, to search and combine clues, to solve puzzles and master many small and finally one big task. The important thing is: here, knowledge is not power. Although we generally approve of a good preparation, our Escape Games are not intended for examining your general education.

Instead, teamwork is at the core. Escape Games require as well as stimulate your co-operation through communication, common consideration and combined action in an artificially created stressful situation. But we do not want to reveal too much… In the end, every player will by all means reveal personal strenghts and weaknesses, but the group can always profit from its member`s various talents. Everyone can become a hero here and be part of the success of the whole team.
