Utrecht, stage of the largest escape room in the heart of the Singel
A different kind of adventure through the city streets
The concept of the escape room consists of taking a group of players and locking them in a room so that, by solving mind games and puzzles, they manage to get out of it against the clock. Like any escape game, until now they have had some limits such as the size of the room or the number of games that can be played, but if we break down all these limits, we will have a much more fun and dynamic game.
ESCAPE CITY BOX breaks all the limits and turns Utrecht into the stage of an escape game, combining also the fact of being part of a film to live in first person the concept of escape games. From now on you have at your fingertips our mobile application together with our box in which you will find all the material to turn Utrecht into the scene of your own film.
“The Spear of Destiny”
The renowned university professor Sarah Levi has discovered a message between two Nazi German government collaborators, mentioning Utrecht as the possible whereabouts of the hiding place of the Spear of Destiny.
This religious relic, which according to legend gives divine powers to those who possess it, has been one of the most sought-after religious objects throughout history, having passed through the hands of great leaders such as Charlemagne and Hitler. Now, new clues place the spear in Utrecht.
Will you be able to discover the exact location of the Holy Lance and place it in a safe place before it is too late?
“The Killer of the Mask”
Catch the Killer of the Mask on the streets of Utrecht. In the first escape room to be played through the streets of the city as if it were a movie.
A serial killer is terrorising the city of Utrecht and for several weeks the Dutch police have been on the trail of what is already considered the worst serial killer in the history of the country. His modus operandi is always the same: he kills his victims and posts the images of the murders on social media.
Are you ready to catch the most wanted serial killer and unmask him before he continues killing?
THE SPEAR OF DESTINY: AN URBAN ESCAPE ROOM IN THE STREETS OF UTRECHT
The urban escape room is the evolution of the escape room games with components and features of the traditional gymkana. In Escape City Box we have created a new concept of Urban Escape Room that is played in the city as if it were a movie. The first movie to be played in the first person. Through a mobile app available on both iOS and Android, you can discover the mysteries of the Spear of Destiny. The app will not only guide you through the city by means of maps and videos that will tell you the plot of the story, but will also offer you tests and enigmas that you will have to decipher to complete your mission. To do so, you will have to use the materials included in the Escape City Box and interact with them and with the urban environment of Utrecht.
In this new Escape City Box adventure, you must help renowned historian Sarah Levi recover one of the most sought-after holy relics in history, the Spear of Destiny, the weapon used by a Roman soldier to pierce Christ’s side while he was crucified on Mount Golgotha in Jerusalem. New evidence places the spear somewhere in the centre of Utrecht, so you will have to investigate its whereabouts through the history of this mythical relic.

PLAY THROUGH THE STREETS OF UTRECHT A MOVIE ADVENTURE
Our escape city turns Utrecht into the scenario of the games that we could find in an escape room but adding new twists and some more interesting features. Thus, we bring you The Killer of the Mask, a cluedo-like game in which you will have to imprison a serial killer who leaves the bodies of his victims in some of the most important places in Utrecht.
The press has called our criminal the Killer of the Mask, who has been going around several cities in the Netherlands repeating the same way of acting: he murders his victims and then leaves their corpse with a mask in some tourist or historical place. In Utrecht he has repeated this modus operandi again to get as much media and social media attention as possible.
Will you be able to find out who is behind the killer’s mask and catch him before he commits murder again?
