Escape game”,escape room”… It's all very mysterious! The principle is simple: You are locked in a room and you have an hour of play to manage to escape. After that, everything is allowed: Themes, universes, stories, role plays and scenarios... There are endless possibilities for games! The objective is to make you travel mentally...

It's cold, it's raining, you don't want to go outside? If you are looking for an original, intellectual and fun activity to share a good time with friends or family, this game is for you. Toulouse is a dynamic city that knows how to "keep up to date". The escape game is one of the trendy outings of the moment. So to find the "game" that suits you, we take a tour of the Toulouse possibilities.

The escape game, how does it work?

 This life-size escape game, born in 2007 in Japan, is a physical and real version of "escape the room" video games. Since its creation, it has been very fashionable and is spreading everywhere... Especially in big cities, where you will find a wide choice of themes and rooms, missions, original roles...

Concretely, a room, a house, a park ... is arranged according to a theme: fiction, horror, history, cinema... An atmosphere is planned to "get you in the mood". A scenario is designed in incremental stages to make sense of your investigation. Your "game master" will follow you step by step throughout this story, to assist you in the event of a problem or a blockage in the game.

All you have to do is free your mind and let yourself be carried away, until the ultimate goal: succeed in escaping from this game! It is a very immersive experience, intellectually liberating and often used for team cohesion.

Outdoor escape games

A new variant of the escape game is developing: “The urbangame”. It's a slightly different concept that looks more like a treasure hunt, in the heart of a city. The themes are as varied as for the escape room, but the playground is much bigger! It's a good way to learn, while having fun and discovering Toulouse in a different way. In addition, they are suitable for the whole family!

  • Mysterius escape has a horror classified room. Above all, it offers several urbangames: treasure hunts over different distances.
  • In the same category, Granhota is a city game that takes place like a circuit of discovery. Go as a team (from 15 years old) in the streets of Toulouse. Put your neurons into action, to observe, move, change your points of view and focus your attention on the right details to solve the puzzles. A word of advice, go with good shoes and your camera!
