Can you pull off the heist of the century?

After years and years of experimentation, a team of highly skilled scientists at Triassic Park have finally perfected the process of reviving dinosaurs using ancient dino-DNA! They’re preparing to open their park to the public and are set to make millions of euros!

A team of highly skilled operatives were dispatched by a rival company to steal as many of Triassic Park’s dinosaur DNA samples as they could get their hands on. The mission did not go to plan. The team was caught red handed by Triassic Park’s security squad and are now looking at a life behind bars! Thankfully, before they were captured, the team of operatives were able to disperse the DNA samples that they stole around the Triassic Park Visitor Centre.

And that’s where you come in. You and your associates are a part of the back up team and have been hired to carry out a clean up operation: and the rival company are willing to offer you a staggering €1,000,000 for every piece of dino DNA you and your team are able to recover from the Triassic Park Visitor Centre.

A rogue member of the Triassic Park team has offered to act as your eyes & hands inside of the Visitor Centre in return for a small cut of the profits. But they’ll need your help to recover as many dna samples as possible before security catches on!

Do you have the skills to pull off the heist of the century?

Another charming experience from the folks in Lanzarote.  Helena's wonderfully upbeat hosting is a huge part of what makes playing games with them fun.  This is a room with a LOT to do.    We did technically escape even though we didn't complete all the tasks.  Probably would be more doable as an in person room, since players could split up to work on different tasks.  They have set it up so you get a lot of moments of positive reinforcement, though, and she very kindly took us through the puzzles we didn't get too.  All in all a lovely experience.

A great room to play as you can get a full hour in there collecting DNA samples by solving puzzles or by just being very observant. The theming is good and there's a nice mix of puzzles, all of which are logical. Telescape isn't over used so you're not too distracted from the Avatar and her lovely nails.
I really enjoyed this one.

Our team had a rawrsome time playing this escape room and the hosting was excellent. I felt immersed in the game and truly enjoyed searching out DNA samples. So much so I demanded we spent as much time as possible getting them all! We all enjoyed the non linear design and felt it suited for all our experiences, from novices to enthusiast.  We all had a dino-mite time.

I love the concept of collecting DNA samples as you go through! It created extra excitement and your mind is always in two places at once. This game is not your basic linear escape room and has something for every skill level and is super family friendly! Kiddies (and me) will love finding the samples everywhere whilst the bigger kids help with the puzzles. Who can say no to sitting at home with a wine whilst escaping 🍷😁

Great fun, interesting challenge of trying to collect "points" before time runs out for a "score", never played a game with that format before.  Logical puzzles and great theming.
