After having played the escape game in different movie theaters in Strasbourgall winter long, the return of the good weather opened the way to a new activity just as exciting: the treasure hunt with “Qui veut Pister” Strasbourg!
I discovered the company ” Qui veut pister ” which organizes every weekend 2 treasure hunts. I was told that there were others. You’d be mad at me if I revealed all the details of my experience, but here’s something for you to enjoy, without spoilers!
A few weeks ago, armed with 3 friends (one of them in a stroller!), I got caught up in a detective story worthy of Sherlock Holmes, a dark story of kidnapping in Petite France (I could also have opted for a crime story in Strasbourg). Appointment is given a little before 2 pm in the square Louise Weiss: the atmosphere is strange, we try to locate the other participants among the numerous persons who simply bask. All of a sudden, nearly 40 people gathered around a friendly hostess, clearly identifiable in orange with the logo of the company “ Who Wants to Track “.
It is in a good-natured atmosphere that the different teams get acquainted with the plot with road book, bag and instructions. Let’s go for a quest of clues and answers by exploring the more or less known streets of Strasbourg downtown, always with a little touristy insert (and yet I’m a well informed local!). I am a little afraid that we all follow each other but surprisingly, very quickly, we do not see anyone else which gives even more a side investigator in the middle of strangers who know nothing about the case … In the end, it is because we were good last!
The other teams, between EVJ and birthdays, had more the spirit of competition than us, curious strollers; but for all that we did not finish last of the classification! Yes, the outcome was a general gathering around the hostess with all the explanations, the counting of points and even a little refreshment and gifts for the winners. All in all, more than 2h30 of original entertainment, to be recommended with family or friends!
