OMG, that outdoor escape room in Old Aalborg with witches from the 1600s was lit! The old-timey vibes were like, sooo spooky, and the puzzles were totally mixed with the witch stuff. And get this, it wasn’t just fun; it was learning history without being boring! We found out how people back then were all superstitious and stuff. So crazy! Playing as a squad was awesome. We had to work together, which made us even tighter. Bottom line, if you want a blast from the past that’s, 5 stars amazing, you gotta try this 🔮🔥✨

I recently had the privilege of participating in the outdoor escape room game set against the backdrop of the witch trials in 17th-century Old Aalborg, and I can’t praise it enough. This experience was an absolute gem, immersing us in a captivating historical narrative. The game designers masterfully recreated the eerie and mystifying atmosphere of a time when witch hunts and trials were all too real. Walking through the narrow, dimly lit streets of Old Aalborg felt like stepping into a time machine, where the fear of the supernatural lurked around every corner. The puzzles and challenges were deeply rooted in the historical context of the witch trials, making them both intriguing and thought-provoking. Solving these puzzles felt like deciphering the secrets of the past, adding a layer of suspense and excitement to the game. One of the standout aspects of this experience was the way it shed light on the tragic events of the witch trials in a respectful and educational manner. It was both haunting and enlightening to learn about the superstitions and prejudices of that era, and the game encouraged us to reflect on the consequences of mass hysteria. Playing this escape room game as a group was an unforgettable bonding experience. We had to rely on each other’s wits and resourcefulness to progress, which fostered teamwork and camaraderie among us. It was a truly immersive adventure that brought us closer together. The game masters did an exceptional job of maintaining the historical authenticity while ensuring a smooth and enjoyable experience. Their enthusiasm for the subject matter was infectious, and they added depth to the narrative with their knowledge and storytelling skills.
