The Big Escape has launched in Dublin, Ireland. The much-anticipated event was the first of its kind to hit the streets of Dublin and it did not disappoint.
Described as “Pokemon Go meets Escape rooms” by Brian Dillon from Lovin Dublin, The Big Escape saw hundreds of people racing around Dublin city to solve puzzles, complete challenges and crack code.
On the day, teams did not hold back as the competition was fierce. Using the messaging feature within the app, teams were back and forward with each other through out the game. Using the GPS with the app, teams could see the competition navigating to different characters situated around the city all with the same goal in mind, to take down Big Al’s casino and escape the city with the loot before anybody else.
The launch turned out to be a huge success for The Big Escape and the feedback was amazing. You can see what some of the players had to say in the video below:
The Big Escape is launching in more cities around Ireland, Europe and the UK in the coming months. Keep an eye on our website and social media channels to keep up to date.
