Interactive and entertaining, the Royal Fortress of Chinon has long attracted a wide spectrum of visitors.

In 2016, its forward-thinking approach swung up a gear with the launch of the Escape Game, an attraction that had never before been seen in a historical monument. In the two years that followed, the Fortress attracted more than 3500 players, thus considerably broadening its visitor profile.

Escape Time was voted "best escape game of the Central Loire Valley Region in 2017". Working in close collaboration with the Fortress staff, the team painstakingly created every detail of the plot and background to fit the facts of history.
