How does an Outside Escape work?

An Outside Escape is an automatically guided tour of a city, museum or other location. The participant will work as a team to solve riddles as they are guided through the story. It encourages the participants to take a good look around. They receive all information via their mobile phone: route, story, riddles, hints and solutions. Participants can start whenever they want.

In detail

  • They will play in teams of 2 to 4 people. More is allowed, but the chance that not everyone is fully involved increases.
  • They can start whenever they want. All they need is the link to the Outside Escape and the access code.
  • Everyone can view the information (story, route, riddles, historical background information, etc) on their own phone. But it is also possible to do everything on one phone.
  • We use video, audio and text to tell the story.
  • It is not possible to get stuck, the hints always offer the solution in the end.
  • Teams can earn points by solving the riddles with as few hints as possible. During the route, they also look for photos of specific locations. Afterwards, a scoreboard appears for teams to compare there scores.
  • On average, an Outside Escape lasts about 2 hours, but can vary. There is no time limit, everyone can do it at their own pace and feel free to pause for a snack or a drink.
  • We generally develop for a broad target group, but we can also work for a specific target group. It is also possible to make several variants.
  • Most of our routes are suitable for young people from 12 years old. However, we can also develop for a younger target group. During the development of the routes we take into account people in a wheelchair or with an electric scooter.
