“Do you want to play a game?”

This was how our AdventureRooms Oslo escape quest started in Switzerland in the summer of 2015 and we haven’t looked back since.


Getting the attention of students is hard. Gabriel Palacios did so by locking them into a cellar. He challenged them to find their way out by solving riddles and it jump-started them into asking questions. When the parents heard about his method, they wanted to play the game of riddles as well. That was when the idea turned into the startup AdventureRooms.


Listen to Gabriel's TEDx Talk about how AdventureRooms, a game which he initially set up for his students in 2012, became a worldwide success.
