Full description

Along the way, you will find new locations and unlock amazing stories. After you buy the quest, you will receive an access code that you can use in the app. The quest will take you from 1 to 2-hours to complete, but there’s no time limit, you can finish it at your own pace. You won’t need a guide, just download the app, go to the starting point and you’re ready to go on a city exploration adventure. As you solve the clues, you'll discover new locations and stories. This game is one of the most unique ways to have fun whilst acquainting yourself with the marvelous city of Utrecht. It's a fantastic game for families and groups of friends.

    Nice idea

    In itself a nice idea to walk around the city a bit. There are a few deductions, however. At a task you should knock on a door and get a note, unfortunately we were not opened even after 10 minutes and knocking several times. In addition, the app is only available in English. In addition, it would not even be checked in any way how many people actually take part, you could have simply paid for one person as the app was only used on a smartphone anyway

    Good fun way of exploring Utrecht

    Bit of a challenge to find the start point, but once we got going it was a good fun way for 2 adults and 3 children to explore Utrecht - distance was 3km which was about right and most clues were OK, just 1 or 2 took a bit of help from the adults. The underlying story was also interesting enough to keep them entertained. Would be good for some more of these in the area as it only covered a small part of the large City.
