GO! 2/2016 Adventurebox Karlsruhe / Tobias Gölzer Adventurebox Karlsruhe in Germany combines movie-style storytelling and matching decor, enhanced by outdoor missions, to create a fun and exciting leisure experience. LOGO! makes the games technically possible. All the rooms are fully automated by a total of eight logic modules Adventurebox Karlsruhe / Tobias Gölzer The six players on the “Project Vakium” mission are watching a short film briefing them on their challenge when an alarm sounds from the room next door – triggered by a LOGO! logic module. The team members must then grab their equipment boxes and set off on their mission: a mad scientist has found a dangerous, unstable element, and the group has one hour to find it and secure it. “The first thing the players have to do is disable the alarm,” explains the center’s general manager Christoph Krummel. “They do that using cables with crocodile clips on the ends from their equipment box to jumper broken connections on a total of three alarm boxes. The logic module then cuts the alarm, and the players can move on to their next task.” In addition to “Project Vakium,” Adventurebox Karlsruhe features two other missions: one involving the search for a “Fifth Element” and the other – titled “Impossible” – relating to stolen artworks. The principle underlying these so-called live escape games, which have been growing in popularity in a number of cities over the last few years, is a collaborative one: a group of players is locked in a room and has one hour to complete a number of tasks and solve a series of interactive puzzles together in order to get out. Adventurebox Karlsruhe enriches the experience with movie-style storytelling and matching decor, enhanced by outdoor missions around downtown Karlsruhe. Learning by doing “My business partner, Sebastian Bayer, had seen something similar while on vacation and told me about it,” Krummel recalls. “We were already running a climbing center, so we were familiar with the leisure industry. It’s a sector we enjoy working in, so we quickly decided to launch a live escape game here in Karlsruhe.” But the first question was how to make the games work technically. A friend of the pair who was training to become an electrical engineer told them about LOGO! during one of their weekly meet-ups at a local bar. “I do have some technical skills, and I did once start a course in engineering, but it’s not something I pursued,” the 31-year-old entrepreneur explains. “So a key factor in my decision was that – after a brief introduction to the basic functionality – the LOGO! software’s graphical user interface and simulation options enabled me to learn by doing. 9
