The Longest Hour

What is an ‘escape game'? It's in the name itself: you need to escape and you have exactly 1 hour to do so! It's an exciting game based on teamwork and of course lots of fun! You need to look for objects (and use them), solve puzzles and maybe the most important: work as a team. A single player will not manage to finish the game; only as a team you make a chance to reveal all the mysteries and escape from the house. The game is based on the ‘escape-game'-computer games, but is much more intense. It's not a virtual environment, but it's for real! That's why it's suited for everybody, also for people who have never played a similar game. It's an unforgettable experience for friends, families, teambuilding, birthday- and bachelor parties, briefly: each group who likes to challenge a new experience!

Price: € 17/pp (group of 6) - € 20/pp (group of 3)

Duration: 1 hour
