Although we have already been to Prague three times, LostExit was unfortunately completely unknown to us. Luckily, this good insider tip was mentioned to us by another operator during research for our fourth visit to the Czech capital. LostExit is located in the Old Town (Prague 2) and operates two rooms, “School” (80’) and “Cinema” (90‘), which can be played in Czech, English and now even German. Or to be more precise, we had the briefing/debriefing completely in perfect German. The games are largely language-independent.

The stories for both missions are very detailed and credible. School is about a school building in the former Czechoslovakia that was closed in 1958. A new teacher, a caretaker couple and several missing children seem to play a leading role in this extremely mysterious case. We have come to finally shed light on the mystery.

Not an easy case! There is a lot to do in the very authentic looking classroom and the rest of the school building.  Although the puzzles weren’t linear, and we felt like we were actually progressing fairly quickly in our investigation, we ended up with a six-minute detention.  So step on the gas right from the start! The puzzles and tasks are sometimes more, sometimes less complex, but are always logical and fit the topic very well.

What I really liked, for example, was a found object in the final phase of the game, with the help of which we were able to work out some “puzzle pieces” that are urgently needed for the final solution to the case.

I think “School” can still be played well with 4 or 5 investigators, because the puzzle structure and the space (after the slightly smaller hallway where you start) allow it. For me, LostExit is one of the providers that you should definitely visit in Prague. Many thanks to Milos & Marian for the great hosting. We felt very comfortable with you.
