For those whose mystery-detective inclinations have not yet been satisfied by the likes of Robert Langdon or Sherlock Holmes, Danish creative entrepreneurial company Mystery Makers has created an interactive experience that puts you at the centre of solving cryptic historical puzzles through the corridors of Christiansborg Palace.
Mystery Makers focuses on implementing interactive events that foster teamwork through puzzles and brain-teasers. Their newest interactive game ‘The Secret of Power’ combines elements of history and entertainment to create a collaborative learning experience, shifting the public’s role from one of passive observer to active participant.
Though no magnifying glass is needed to participate, teams are able to interact with Danish history by treasure hunting through the Royal Receptions room, decoding the secrets of the queen’s library and solving detective puzzles.
By using the palace as the backdrop for the game, the objective is that participants will harness their creative abilities to learn about the complex history of power in Denmark. In doing so, they will also discover unconventional stories about past kings that often go untold in history textbooks.
The mystery hunt is suitable for up to 100 people, though one hunt contains material for a team of ten. The detective journey lasts for 1.5 hours, and will be available to play in English on November 1!
