For the first time ever, the Queen’s Gallery at Buckingham Palace has been transformed into a new Leonardo da Vinci-themed escape room experience.
As reported by Blooloop, this new escape room, called “Escape Room: Leonardo Artmergency!”, was produced in collaboration with History Mystery, and the game is part of an overall exhibition titled “Leonardo da Vinci: A Life in Drawing.”
During the escape room experience, teams of four to eight players will have exclusive access to rooms displaying da Vinci’s drawings for one hour. The storyline, courtesy of History Mystery, is:
“An after-hours VIP tour is imminent but the curator has disappeared! Thankfully he’s well-prepared but everything is securely locked away! Can you crack the codes, unlock the puzzles in Leonardo’s fascinating original works and find the missing curator before time runs out?”
The Queen’s Gallery will be transformed into four rooms of themed puzzles and riddles for players to solve as they search for the missing curator. The experience will feature many props, and front-of-house wardens will serve as guides and offer extra clues.
Leonardo da Vinci: A Life in Drawing is at the Queen’s Gallery now through Oct. 13. Guests can experience Escape Room: Leonardo Artmergency! on Friday and Saturday evenings now through Oct. 5. The experience costs £150 ($187.33 USD) per team.
