Have you ever played an escape game? If yes, I’m pretty sure you agree that it’s a really fun experience! If you haven’t, let me explain: Escape games are a type of adventure game whereby a group of people are trapped in a room and try to solve a mystery using clues in order to escape within a set time limit. Escape games seem to have taken Brussels by storm and if you’re following the blog for a while, you probably remember that it’s a concept I have tried and really loved. So when the team of Enygma invited me to try their new escape game concept, I was sold!
Set in the heart of Brussels, close to the beautiful Mont des Arts and the Central Station, Enygma offers different game scenarios that are suitable for all ages. My friends and I had a cup of tea with the founders before starting and got to know a bit more about the concept. Two best friends joined forces to bring in Brussels the best live escape game. They worked with local artists and engineers from the VUB to create the decor and technology hidden in the rooms. I was actually amazed with the amount of work and attention to detail they’ve put into Enygma. They’re really passionate about what they’re doing and this is very much reflected in what they’ve come up with!
Our mission was to solve a mystery related to British crime legend Sherlock Holmes and his nemesis, the criminal mastermind Professor Moriarty. We had 60 minutes to discover hidden clues and solve conundrums combined with a little hints that were given to us along the way where we got stuck. It was challenging but also very rewarding to see us working together as a team – and believe me when I say that we had to make each second count! The game was exciting, fun and kept us on our toes until the very end. I won’t reveal any spoilers but I will tell you that you simply have to try it too.
If you’re looking for a fun activity while you’re visiting Brussels, a team building event with colleagues or an entertaining outing with your family, give Enygma a go and let me know whether you managed to solve the riddles and escape!
