Ho, ho, ho! Time for a festive Treasure Hunt.
This adventure is based on Christmas carols. You will not have to strain your singing voices, just your “little grey cells” as you try to work out the answers to the song sheet of clues. This is not a ‘race’, so you can take your time to explore the National Portrait Gallery, the oldest portrait gallery in the world. Then it’s off to a secret location for after-hunt cocktails and prize giving.
Teams of 2 to 4 people must be pre-booked. This adventure is for over 18’s only and includes the festive treasure hunt, cocktails and prizes.
The 12 Days of Christmas Treasure Hunt at The National Portrait Gallery on Sunday 18th December 2016 with Treasure Hunts in London
Invitation To Events took a team to the new escape room by Enigma Quests.
Unlike other escape rooms, where the aim is to escape, Enigma Quests offer immersive challenges.
For their last adventure, the School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, you were required to pass exams. You may not “escape” within the 60 minutes but you may have passed some of the achievement levels, starting at “Troll”.
Their latest adventure, the Million Pound Heist, requires you to “steal” as much money as possible…..and escape.
The plot sees your team break into the safe house of one of London’s most notorious criminal gang. You then have to analyse highly confidential information and navigate your way through top level security before you get to the vault. Once you’ve got into the vault you have to get fill your case with as much money as possible and escape. All this within 60 minutes.
The game is highly interactive, with some great challenges we hadn’t seen before. Just as the props were outstanding in the School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, there is great attention to detail in the Million Pound Heist quest. The room owners design every puzzle, and source or create all the high quality props themselves.
How did we do?
Well, we scored £890,000 out of the possible £2,000,000 that could fit in the briefcase, and escaped within the 60 minutes.
Job well done.
