New escape room game at Trdinova 8 in Ljubljana
A wholesome room ‘The First Detective Agency’ is coming to Trdinova. In its infancy the game was bringing joy to the children of Šentvid, though now as the game grows older and moves to Trdinova 8 – aptly situated next to the police station and courthouse – it has become a fully-fledged agency for adults too! With versions catering towards children’s birthday parties, families, and adults alike – we’re delighted to clue you in. Reservations are possible from June 15!
PS: The circus room is still setting up the stage and will be ready this Autumn. Although we’ve already prepared props and games, a couple of our performers absconded on a summer trip – such is the way with circuses and moving around! We’ll keep you updated on its grand opening in Autumn. HINT: confirm here, that we can invite you to new openings .)

Not to say we’re giving the cold shoulder to our normal players – with a total of 5 rooms we are now ready for teambuilding events. The Igloo will be chilling from early July onwards
