We want you to have an adventure that you will remember for a long time to come. If you have specific questions, check out the frequently asked questions.

Frequently asked questions
How long does an experience take?

We expect you to arrive at our experiences 15 minutes in advance, this is also much nicer for yourself. We also suggest you have at least 15 minutes after you are done playing to talk about your experience a little more.

Moriarty's Masterpiece is 90-120 minutes, and Sherlock's Brain Attic is 75 minutes.

How physical is the experience?

At Sherlock's Brain Attic, mild climbing and scrambling is required.

At Moriarty's Masterpiece, it's mostly hiking. You'll cover about 2 kilometers.

Is it wheelchair accessible?

Moriarty's Masterpiece can be experienced with a wheelchair. This outdoor experience does have time constraints due to the actors, but that need not be a barrier if you can push this person.

Sherlock's Brain Attic is not wheelchair friendly. It is a narrow building with several flights of stairs. Unfortunately, this cannot be solved in any other way.

Is the experience scary?

No, our experiences are not scary. Of course they are exciting. We believe that the excitement ensures that you will remember the experience for a long time.

In some experiences we use actors, they will never touch anyone or scare anyone on purpose. They add something to the story and are there to make the world more real and get you deeper into the story.

Can I organize an experience as a team building activity?

Definitely! You can play with your colleagues. You get to know each other in a new way in a very exciting experience! Up to 14 players can play at the same time. For larger groups it is best to contact us. We can have a new group playing every 45 minutes.

Toilet use during the experience

There is no toilet at the indoor experience, next to the escape room is a bar and there you can use the toilet for free.

In the outdoor experience you are free to have a toilet break during the experience. It is useful to let your contact person know so that the actors can take this into account.

From what age are the experiences playable?

We recommend playing one of our experiences from the age of 12. For children under the age of 16, an adult is required to walk/play with them.

Will it continue if it rains?

The gang stops for no one. So even if it rains, your civic duty is needed. Of course, we then recommend bringing an umbrella and putting on warmer clothes. In autumn and winter, the chance of bad weather is greater. Only when there is a real storm and your own safety cannot be guaranteed will your mission be cancelled and we will look together for an alternative date.

This only applies to the outdoor experience, the indoor experience Sherlock's Brain Attic doesn't have any problems with bad weather.

Can it be kept secret from a bachelor? Or as a surprise?

Yes this can be kept secret. Even until the experience has already begun. The birthday boy, the bachelor or the person(s) you want to put in the limelight has no idea what he or she has gotten into.

Our experiences are played a lot on bachelor parties and family days where the activity is a surprise. We have special assignments that are very suitable for the person who may not know yet to do.

The experience starts after booking, this communication is not yet known to the persons for whom it is a surprise. Please do not give the name and e-mail address of the bachelor and mention it as a remark when booking.

With how many people can I play at most?

From 2 people and up to 16 people. You will then play the outdoor and indoor experience simultaneously. If the group is larger, please contact us so we can discuss the possibilities.

With more than 8 players you will be split into teams. You will then play at the same time only you will not play the same experience.

Groups can be started every 45 minutes, so if your group is larger you can also play after each other.
