Was ist der Unterschied zwischen dem Outdoor Escape GAME und dem Outdoor Escape ROOM

The Outdoor Escape Game richtet sich vorwiegend an Firmenkunden, sowie Private mit speziellen Bedürfnissen. Es kann ortsunabhängig durchgeführt, sowie die Route frei mitgestaltet werden. Ebenso kann man auf Anfrage bis zu 5 Rätselfragen z.B. an euer Unternehmen anpassen („Welche Abteilung hat nachweislich den höchsten Kaffeekonsum“ etc.). Ein weiterer Schwerpunkt des OEG ist das Teambuilding: es ist etwas kompetitiver angelegt, da hier oftmals mehrere Teams im direkten Vergleich antreten. Das Event mit Siegerehrung dauert rund 2.5  -3h Stunden.

Der Outdoor Escape Room richtet sich hingegen vorwiegend an private Personen, welche eher die Erfahrung eines Escape Rooms (knifflige Rätsel lösen) in der freien Umgebung suchen und die Bedürfnisse eines Unternehmens oft nicht haben. Diese fahren mit einer standardisierten Route im schönen Zürcher Niederdorf, oder der Genfer Altstadt meist am besten. Wir können so ein hohes Volumen an Besuchern bewältigen zu einem sehr attraktiven Preis. Das Event dauert rund 1.5 Stunden.

Outdoor Escape ROOM: Ideal für Private | fixe Route in Zürich und Genf | 1-3 Teams im Wettbewerb | stärker in die Umgebung eingebaut | rund 1.5h Programm

Is the online escape game "curfew" bound to dates?

No - you will receive an order confirmation from us immediately after booking and - a few moments later - another mail from the "detective agency" with your access link and access code. So the play date is only a placeholder.

How to start the game Curfew?

After receiving the second mail from the "detective agency" (check spam folder if not received) you are ready to start. Just share this mail with all people who are playing. Afterwards you only need one way to communicate with each other (Skype, Whatsapp Call, Zoom, Conference Call etc.).

Do we have to be in the same place and how many PCs can we use?

The ticket is a group ticket. It can be used for every booked person on a browser (even several times) until the case is solved once. A ticket "1-3 persons" from 3 PCs, a ticket "4-6 persons" from up to 6 PCs. So you don't have to be all at one place. The game was developed especially for the time of the assembly ban and is therefore also "remote" playable / intended.

Where do you offer the Outdoor-Escape-Games?

We offer the games throughout Switzerland, except within the city limits of the cities of Bern and Lucerne.

What makes you different from an escape room?

In an Escape Room you are in a closed room and you have to find out by means of puzzles. With our offer you are already outside at the beginning and solve the puzzles in your environment. So you're in the fresh air and have some exercise!

How fit do we have to be?

With the exception of the eTukTuk variant in Zurich, the games are played on foot. The players cover about 2000 metres in 150 minutes. It is therefore rather a walk and not too sporty a hunt.

Special requests can also be made here. Then we make the route accordingly more comfortable or extra sporty.

What do we do in bad weather?

The games take place outside as outdoor games of course. Each game set comes with rain ponchos, which can be pulled over your clothes. Clothing appropriate to the weather is of advantage in any case! There is also the possibility to move the event inside if the weather forecast predicts really bad weather. In this case you will need a large interior for you and your team (e.g. a restaurant or your office building). We can replan this relatively spontaneously.

How long do the games last / how long are we busy?

A playing time of about 150 minutes has proven to be a good choice. With introduction and award ceremony you are busy for about 3 hours.

Of course you can also adjust the duration of the game, for example by stopping for an aperitif in the middle of the game.

What is the topic of the different games?

„Operation Mindfall“ plays in a dystopian agent setting. The city is threatened by a global catastrophe - a renegade research organization has contaminated the groundwater of several cities with an inactive virus in a secret project. The virus is currently still dormant and now it's up to you to stop the dark plans and save your city or village!

„Magic Portal“ is a little less nerve-racking and takes place in a lovely fantasy world full of trolls, gnomes and fantastic mythical creatures. However, gates have been opened to an evil parallel world, which now needs to be closed.

What is the difficulty level of the games?

The Game "Mindfall" is intended for adults. The puzzles are quite challenging, especially requiring teamwork and a good comprehension, as well as the ability to use unusual perspectives ("think outside of the box").

But the puzzles are never frustrating and can be skipped if necessary - of course this has its price and the team loses some game points. This leads to a certain competition among themselves.

The Game "Magic Portal" is kept a little simpler and is suitable for "young to old", especially families or intergenerational groups have their greatest fun. Here, the focus is more on discovering and exploring than on competing with each other.

Where does the event start?

Unless otherwise agreed, the event starts by default at the booked time at the Pestalozzi Park at Bahnhofstrasse (near Zurich Main Station). A Game Master is already waiting for you with all necessary things!

If you have chosen a place other than Zurich, you will find the starting point on your booking.

We want to play the game in a mountain village, is that possible?

We are basically location-independent and the game can be played anywhere where GPS data can be received (outdoors). Internet access or mobile phone reception is not mandatory.

If you are playing in two groups at the most (about 4-12 people), there is the possibility to get the game sent to you with detailed instructions. If you play in 3 or more groups we will send you an operator who will supervise the game on site and give you an introduction.

Is the route fixed, or can wishes be expressed?

We have worked out proven routes for many cities over time. Technically, there is nothing to prevent special requests when planning the route. For example, we are happy to start on the company premises, build in an aperitif stop at your favourite bar and finish at the restaurant, where dinner is then planned.

As we have a wealth of experience, we can also advise on individual routes to make your event a complete success.

Can we still change the route or the language spontaneously?

Can we change the route or the language spontaneously? events need some preparation so that the experience can be adapted to the venue and the participants. If the language or route changes at short notice, we can make changes up until the evening before the event. The route or language cannot be changed at the event itself.

Can we build in our own questions?

This is basically possible. Please contact us, we can give you some hints, so that the questions fit perfectly into the game.

Questions about insider knowledge or funny estimation questions are especially popular with companies e.g: "what department shines primarily by its high coffee consumption?"

Bachelor groups, on the other hand, like to test the knowledge about the bride and groom, for example: "What was the groom's clothing style before he met someone with an propper idea?"

We are now some participants more or less, what now?

As far as payment is concerned, you only pay the players who actually participate.

However, if the number of players has changed considerably (more than 4 persons), please let us know in time, as the number of groups may have changed and we need more or less material.

Which group size is ideal?

We recommend a group size of 4-6 persons. This way everyone has something to do and a pleasant group dynamic is created.
