Scavenger hunt: The Time Machine Escape

This is something as fun as a mobile escape game, a combination of a mobile scavenger hunt and an escape game! The challenge is for the children to both find their way on the map and then, as they end up in different eras, solve a riddle to gather numbers for the code that will make the time machine return to our own time! A journey through time and space for children aged approximately 8-12 years.

The children’s chemistry and history teacher, Noha Clockwise, has through a never-before-tested experiment happened to send all his students off in a time machine! To return to our time, the children must follow a map on their mobile phones and solve riddles in whatever era the time machine has put them. Each riddle provides a number for the code that will make the time machine return to our own time.

They have Noha Clockwise’s “handy-to-have” booklet with valuable information to help them solve the riddles. This, along with instructions, solutions, and a sheet featuring the time machine’s control panel where the correct numbers can be noted, will be available for download. You can print as many copies as you need.

This is how it works! 

When you order, you will receive an email with a link to a small organizer’s website. On this you post teams and decide where the teams should go. You can choose to send all your teams along the same track, or create up to five different routes. You create the routes by placing map pins for the various questions on a map of the area where you want to do the scavenger hunt. You decide when, where and how far!

One smartphone with internet connection is needed per team. Each phone also need to have our free app GrapevineGO installed.

On the organizer’s website a QR code per team is generated and the scvenger hunt is started by scanning each team’s QR code with the app. Then it all gets going and the time start running.

Participants see one map pin at a time, only when they have answered a question correctly do they see the next pin. If you answer a question incorrectly, you get a time penalty of 30 seconds before you get to try to answer the question again. However, the questions have multiple choice answers, so sooner or later the team can continue.

Since only the next pin is visible, you can, if you want, run a scavenger hunt with a secret final destination without revealing where it all ends. 

When all teams have reached the final destination, a result is calculated on your organizer’s website. In this scavenger hunt teams can compete for time and the winner is the team that gets the most correct answers in the shortest time.

On your organizer’s website, there are two test teams that you can use to test the event yourself before running it “for real”.

You choose the size of the product when you order. If you want between 1-5 teams in your event, you choose this option, if you want more teams, you choose 6-10 teams.
