The escape game

A unique concept

Between reality and virtual world, this “Hyper Escape Game” concept created exclusively for the Rouen Donjon throws out the usual rules of a heritage site and breaks down the boundaries of a traditional escape game.

Between real life and the virtual world

The team locked inside this exhibition about the siege of Rouen has to go back and forth non-stop to 1419 so they can find the Donjon's ultimate secret.

Virtual reality offers players access to new puzzles outside the donjon walls and beyond the present day for more authentic historic immersion.

The Oculus Quest headset

The Rouen Donjon offers a virtual reality experience with the Oculus Quest headset. This multi-player VR headset is wireless and completely self-operating.

It provides fluid interactions between reality and the virtual world. Players can move freely from the past to the present

An original scenario : The Blanchard Mystery

"You are a team of treasure hunters and you've come to help Old Paul's assistant. Paul was a kind archaeologist who spent his entire life, right up until his recent death, managing with the collections and exhibitions of the Donjon. He left behind a posthumous letter in which he says that he hid a priceless treasure in the heart of the Donjon. But time is running out! An English aristocrat has just purchased the exhibition and is arriving in one hour to finalise the transfer of the collection."

Nouveauté : Le défi du donjon

Après une chute sur la tête en installant son exposition sur Rouen en 1419, le conservateur a perdu la mémoire. Un historien qui a oublié l'Histoire, quel comble ! Il fait appel à vous et vos élèves pour l'aider, et pour finir l'exposition à temps. Munis d'un petit livret rempli d'énigmes historiques, les élèves devront aller chercher les informations au coeur du Donjon et aux abords extérieurs du monument.

Au format d'une heure et animée par un médiateur interprétant le conservateur amnésique, cette activité permettra aux élèves d'en apprendre plus sur l'histoire de la tour, dernier vestige du château de Rouen, et sur la vie quotidienne et militaire des habitants pendant la guerre de cent ans.
Durée : 1h
4€ par élève

Nouveauté : Nos ancêtres les Rouennais

À quoi ressemblait la vie des Rouennais à l’époque de Jeanne d’Arc? Que mangeaient-ils? Comment étaient-ils habillés? Comment faisaient-ils la guerre? Quoi de mieux pour le découvrir que de s’immerger en grandeur nature au plus près de la vie de nos ancêtres ? Costumes, ustensiles, mais aussi armures, armes ou science du blason : entre démonstrations, manipulations et jeux d’équipes, les enfants accompagnés d’un médiateur découvriront, loin des clichés, la vie civile et militaire des Rouennais du Moyen Âge.
Durée : 1h
4€/élève
