In Flanders Fields
Atrium Mortis is an event location (paintball and escape games) in Lebbeke, in the Belgian province of East Flanders. Currently you can play two Escape Rooms there: Steampunk Sabotage or In Flanders Fields. This provider was unknown to me until now, but I am glad that it was recommended to us for the Belgium trip by the Pingouins Ténébreux. Especially because of the latter room.
Our scenario is set in 1917, with World War 1 raging in Belgium. We have joined the resistance movement in Flanders and our mission is to cross no-man’s land at a suitable spot, locate a German machine gun nest and take it out.
The setting was pretty impressive and very well done. The puzzles fitted the theme very well and for the most part had a non-linear structure, so we were able to complete some of the numerous tasks in parallel. However, some tasks require teamwork and good communication. Four of us played, which I think is a good group size, and we made full use of the 60 minutes of playing time.
A clear recommendation from my side!
