This sounds like a bit of socially-distanced craic.
A new interactive outdoor escape experience is coming to Cork on Saturday, September 5th, 2020, inviting players to solve puzzles, crack codes and complete challenges around the city and compete for prizes.
The Big Escape Live allows hundreds of people to play the GPS activated game while still following the Government Covid-19 guidelines.
The Cork event, which meets on the Grand Parade, will see groups of up to six people battle it out with a leaderboard updated in real-time, giving those taking part a competitive edge.
“We’re excited to bring the game to Cork,” said Mark French from The Big Escape Live.
“There’s a flexible start time from National Monument Grand Parade giving people the opportunity to play at different times. But as teams navigate the streets together, they’ll be near to each other, which will hopefully create a buzz around the city, especially if they’re playing in fancy dress which is optional!
“Teams can choose when they play the game as tickets are valid for six months but after being locked in for so long, we wanted to try and create a fun and safe outdoor atmosphere for people to enjoy.”
The live event takes place on September 5th, 2020 with teams encouraged to play between 10am and 2pm. Tickets (available here) cost €48 per team (a maximum of six people) with kids playing for free.
