Da Vinci's Exploration



Description

An ancient legend states that Leonardo Da Vinci was searching for the secret of eternal life. Some dare to say he actually found it… Evil forces are working on finding the Holy Grail and are only 60 minutes away from it. Can you get there before them?

Based on Da Vinci’s life. This escape game requires players to work as a team to solve hidden puzzles, look for clues and to try to escape in an hour. The room gives to the players the oppurtunity to use their knowledge, teamwork skills to accomplish a unique escape game.

--------------------------------------------

Strength in numbers

Just one more person in your team can make a huge difference. So many groups who didn’t make it out in time were actually very close to finishing the game and to open the exit door. One extra person can easily make the escape 5-10 minutes quicker.

Be persistant

If you believe that you have a solution to a game but the code that you have got doesn’t open any locks, it can be worthwhile to double check your solving. Never give up, some games can take a while to figure out.

It's a team game

Share your findings with your team – cooperate and listen to each other. Ask for help from your mates if you find a riddle too difficult or challenging.

Look at objects from every angle

When you search for clues, try to be as thorough as an airport security guard. Grab everything, turn things around. The answer to a puzzle can be in your hand, you might be just looking at it from the wrong angle. Have a good eye for details.

Summarise

What have/haven’t you used? What have/haven’t you solved? Have a strategy for dealing with finds. Separating used clues from unused ones can make things a lot easier in the long run.

Use the walkie talkie

Many escape rooms provide walkie talkies for players to help them through more complex puzzles if needed. Your captors will happily give you clues along the way but it works both ways. Ask for a clue if you feel you’ve tried everything and need a little push to move further in the game.

Is there an age limit for the game?

Players of all ages are welcome, however, some of the games are more complex and require the combinational skills of an adult. Our escape room is recommended for 16 year olds or above. If there are children in your group, it’s advised to have at least 2 adults with them.

Is it possible for 2 teams to race against each other at the same time in two rooms?

Yes, it is possible. The groups can play at the same time (in 2 different rooms). We can change the starting time of the games for you so that both team could start at the same time. Please let us know if you are looking to book to parallel games. An Example: You can book the Professor Oxford’s Experiments room for 6 pm and the Da Vinci’s Exploration room for 6:30 pm. In this case both games can start at 6:00 pm (or 6:30 pm).

What time should I arrive to the game and how long does it last exactly?

Please try to show up only 5 minutes earlier than your booking time. If you come earlier than that, other groups can spoil the experience for you. There are plenty of shops, restaurants and pubs in the area to spend some time before your game starts. We’d like to avoid delays for groups coming after you so please don’t be late. If you are late for more than 10 minutes of the original starting time of your booking, then the length of your session might gets reduced. There is an instruction before the game as well, the whole experience can last up to 75 minutes. If you are quick, it can be less than an hour.

I've never been in an escape room before, but I'd like to see more after this. Staffs were very helpful and the detail and atmosphere of the room were all top notch..

Enjoyed this one hour escape experience. Went as a group of 3, failed to escape the room but surely we spent a good time finding the clues! Would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting to try something different.

This one is unique than any other escape games since this game is based on Vinci's life. You must need a team to solve all the puzzles in time. Me and my friends had fun doing this.


FAQ

What is a Live Escape Game?

A small group (usually 3-6) of people is locked up in a room filled with hidden keys, various objects, puzzles, riddles and challenging games. You’ve got 60 minutes to solve all the puzzles and to open the final door. No hard physical exercises or scary elements involved.

Can we play as a couple? What about 6 or more players?

If you are interested in playing with 2 players, you can contact us using the email address on our Contact Us page. Escaping the room is possible but quite challenging for two players. It’s only recommended if you have some experience in these type of games and you are very good at puzzles. Teams of 2’s have the lowest success rate. Playing with 6 team members is recommended only if you have a tight group and really want everybody to play together. It’s still fun to play with so many friends, but there will be less to do per individuals.

Is there an age limit for the game?

Players of all ages are welcome, however, some of the games are more complex and require the combinational skills of an adult. Our escape room is recommended for 16 year olds or above. If there are children in your group, it’s advised to have at least 2 adults with them.
