We so far experienced the casino and the jail. Great! Looking forward for having a look in the other rooms. Welcoming, entertaining and helping staff. The walls in the entrance corridor are full of signatures. Need probably soon an extension, ha. Nice place.

We had a wonderful day saving the world in Basel. The puzzles were on sites in Basel and needed ingenuity and quick footwork to solve. We had a great time as a team event.
