Citywide Escape Games

You no longer have to escape from a room, but from your city! The Urban Escape Game is a treasure hunt with riddles to solve and missions to complete. Play in the city and at the same time (re)discover it in a completely different way!

An Escape Game in the city and on your smartphone!

Tired of the traditional Escape Room? We have something for you!

If you've never felt trapped in your own city (2020 lockdown excluded) then try an escape game in the city on your smartphone! 

Ask your buddies to join you and as a team, load up your smartphones and start exploring your city with an urban treasure hunt.

An Escape Game to be played in town with your smartphone

If you thought you had explored all the options of Escape Games, you should try the treasure hunt in the city and on your smartphone. It's a completely different experience: you follow the scenario on your phone but the city is your playground! Follow the map on the app to navigate and move around the city. You will have to solve riddles, complete missions, make choices,... Look carefully where you are, sometimes the answer to your puzzle is right in front of you! 

A limited time to complete your treasure hunt

In the same way as a more traditional escape game you will have to find the answers to riddles that will help you progress throughout the story. Of course you will have to do this in a given time: our games will take you around the city for 1.5 to 3 hours depending on the scenario you choose.

A ranking to help you position yourself

In all our games there are points to be won: depending on the answer given, the time taken to answer or the clues asked, you will win (or lose) points! The aim is to win as many points as possible to be first in the ranking at the end. On our website, on the page of each game, you will find the ranking that indicates the 50 best players. It's up to you and your team to challenge each other to be part of the winning trio!
