The offer of these games is free, although there are also paid ones, and many of them are based on real events.
The escape games are one of the commitments of the Pamplona City Council and the local tourism sector to make the city known in a different way.
These games combine interactivity with tours of Pamplona to discover its heritage, its history or its festivals. The offer includes free and paid escape rooms. All the information can be consulted at the Tourist Office and on the municipal website, as reported by the Consistory in a note.
The walls are the attraction of one of the free games that Pamplona offers throughout the year, and also in summer. The ‘Escape from the Walls’ consists of overcoming various tests, some search, others logic, others using the mobile device itself with tactile riddles.
The game, based on a true event and narrated by historical figures of the city, begins in the San Bartolomé fort and visits various areas of the walls of Pamplona.
The city of Pamplona was subjected to a complete blockade by the Carlist troops. The 20,000 inhabitants were unable to leave the city, and were completely locked up for six months. It happened from September 1874 to February 1875. It was winter and there was a brutal shortage of food, the conditions were terrible. This is where the game starts, in which the Carlists are fought to avoid this blockade of the city.
The game is aimed at people over 16 years of age and can be played in pairs, groups or families with children from 7 years of age. During the Saturdays of August, a model of the Citadel can be obtained as a reward.
Another free game available is ‘The Chalice Theft’. It is about finding the culprit of the theft of the chalice of Carlos III through clues that the characters will give throughout the game. It is set in the time of Carlos III the Noble (1423) and allows you to discover what Pamplona was like then, as well as the history and ins and outs of the Camino de Santiago as it passed through the city.
The game is ideal for ages 10 and up and can be played in pairs, groups, families, even individually. It is available in 4 languages: Spanish, Basque, English and French. This summer there are guided tours related to this game from the blood wheel in the Camino de Santiago park.
