Who is it for
Solving challenges together – experience yourselves as a team
Quest games allow groups of people to find an informal way of contributing to tasks and problems at hand. Both senior staff and new coworkers have the same status and can contribute to the solutions. This creates new team dynamics and becomes a lasting experience that carries over into the work place. Moreover, our quest games are also simply a fun activity that let team members enjoy themselves away from work and ensure common subjects to talk about for weeks to come.
Tired of meeting for coffees or sitting passively in the cinema? For the price of a meal out, friends and colleagues can experience some unique entertainment. Our quests take you into another world. Forget the daily grind and become a strong team. Because you don't need any special occasion other than just having an awesome time with your buddies.
Families with kids aged 12 and above often struggle to find activities that fit them all. Our escape quests are an entertaining and fun activity. Everybody can contribute in solving the riddles and taking part in the engaging stories. This experience will stay with your family forever.

Escape into another world before tieing the knot and solve exciting riddles and tasks, that will test your skills for married life (and beyond). We are Vienna's only escape quest in the middle of the old town making it easy to continue your day/night or dive into the rich bar/restaurante scene all around us.
The gift of an exciting experience will last forever
Whether you want to give an escape room experience as a present (check out our gift vouchers) or look for a great activity for a birthday party, our quests are a unique experience for people of all ages (from 12 years). Our prices are perfect for a gift for a loved one (or shared among friends/colleagues). We love hosting birthday party groups and since we are located in Vienna's old town, you can continue the party in restaurants or bars all around our location.
Get to know your date really well in an escape game
What?! A romantic date in an escape room?! We say: why not! Nowhere else you can engage in an interactive story and see how your (potential) partner deals with problems and riddles. Test how well you work as a team and after winning, have something really great to talk about. Our quests are not as passive as going to the movies, as calorie-rich as going for a dinner, as loud and uncommunicative as going to a concert. Still think, that escape rooms are not perfect for romantic dates?!
The ultimate present – this will not catch dust or be a bore
Watch their face light up, when they see your present! No risk of giving yet another dust catcher or missing their taste. Our quests are personal experience that everybody can play in their own way. Better yet, give them a voucher for a quest together with you! We don't judge you for really buying a present for yourself as well ;-)
