Here’s what awaits you

More than just an escape room. This is a REAL adventure taking place inside underground caves and basement of a 18th-century building.

All our adventures are based on true stories. They are all divided in

1 hour of gameplay and a 15-minute introduction to the adventure.

You will see people in costumes, but these are not horror-themed activities. Become the brand new Indiana Jones and try out this adventure!

Do you dare accept our challenge?

The escape room is a team game where groups of 2 to 8 or 10 players try to solve riddles, hints, mysterious objects and eventually find a way to escape the room they are locked in before time is up, which usually is 60 minutes.

We offer two experiences:
1) I Segreti della Grotta (The Cave’s Mysteries): inside perfectly preserved 18th-century caves, located 10 metres underground, you will follow along the lines of a true story occurred in the 19th century in those passages. Electricity is not allowed.
2) La Cantina del Matto (“The Madman’s Basement”): set in the basement of a 18th century building, you will enter inside the mind of the mad man, the last heir of a fallen family. Each room has its own madness!

Trace back the true story of this man through objects that belonged to him in the past. But beware of his madness!

Mama’s tips:

“Li Vurgacci” – This path, which winds through wooden bridges and footbridges, combines the beauty of nature with its proximity to the old town centre. It begins where the waters of the Potenza River cross Pioraco, in the place where a series of waterfalls, vortexes, pits and gorges, created from years and years of erosion, come to life, almost if by magic. Here there are also some rest areas where you can stop for a nice picnic.

Paper and Watermark Museum – Here you can have a rare experience, which consists in observing the hand-made creation of sheets of paper by the gualchiera, which will also allow you to witness the incredible use of tools and techniques typical of the 14th century.

River shrimp festival – In August, do not miss this event with food stands open for lunch and dinner, which pays tribute to one of the most incredible delicacies of the territory
– a crustacean of unique sweetness and flavour.

Souvenirs – Are you looking for a souvenir that will allow you to relive the town’s spirit? Then you have to buy one of the incredible filigree paper artifacts produced in the extraordinary Gualchiera Prolaquense.


Mama’s tips:

So much to do! – The main events of the town are the Italian Regularity Championship for Vintage Motorcycles (an Italian Classic Car Race Event, in June), “Città del Miele” (lit. “City of Honey”, in July), Festa della Montagna (Mountain Festival, in July), the Sagra degli Arrosticini (Arrosticini Food Festival), “Giornata Bandiera Arancione del TCI” (Orange Flag Day, in October) and Sagra della Castagna (Chestnut Festival, in October).

Green break – Are you ready to get lost among many trails, the conservation area of Polverina and Lake Boccafornace? The natural beauties of this territory will leave you speechless!

Enjoy! – The local cheeses, honey, chestnuts, legumes, beef, lamb, Varnelli liquors, trout and freshwater fish will enrich your table with unforgettable moments!

Rebirth – The community of this town rich in art and history is tenacious and eager to make you fall in love with the natural beauty offered by their territory.
