What is an Urban Escape Game?

An Urban Escape Game is a treasure hunt that takes place in the city: using your smartphone and the Coddy mobile application, you are guided through the city to different points of interest. The points of interest can be famous monuments, must-see squares or even hidden alleys, little-known unusual places. There, you will be offered riddles or missions. You will have to answer the questions or complete a mission to continue your adventure. For some riddles, you will find the answer around you: you will have to observe your environment carefully!

In the Coddy application you will find : 

  • A map to guide you
  • Clues to guide you to the right answers
  • Objects that can help you in your quest
  • A ranking to situate you in relation to your opponents
  • Your points: earned by answering correctly the riddles

Why do an urban escape game with your students/class/school?

Isn't learning while having fun the favourite slogan of students (and teachers)? It's a lot more fun to swap the traditional, boring guided tour for a life-size treasure hunt, isn't it? 

Thanks to the Urban Escape Game, you can discover a city, its monuments, its key places and some anecdotes about them while playing! Your students will have to solve riddles, rack their brains to find the answers while creating team cohesion. It's a collective but challenging game, suitable for all ages!

But also...

  • It is simple and efficient to organise;

  • There are themes (scenarios) for all tastes;

  • The price is largely affordable;

  • It is an intuitive and cultural activity;

  • You can organise it whenever you want! No booking necessary.

How to organize an urban escape game with your students?

It's quick and easy to organise: there's no need to book, just visit our website, choose a game and the city you want to play in and take the number of tickets needed for your class. 

The teams are composed of a maximum of 6 players. This allows for a better integration and participation of each team member. 

Once you have obtained your game codes, all you have to do is distribute them to your students. Each student can download the Coddy application on their smartphone, enter their game code, join a team and start the game!

The next step is logical, as you can imagine: go to the place indicated in the app to start the adventure and let the app guide you! The starting points are often near train stations, in city centres.

Our games have an average duration of two hours. So you can organise this as a one-off afternoon outing, as an activity on a school trip or as a nice end to a day out with another urban Escape Game visit! 

By purchasing the tickets on our website, the codes will remain available 365 days (so it is possible to postpone the activity).
