Completing the challenges
Along the way, the app gives a signal when you arrive at a location where you have to carry out a challenge. "The questions are not difficult, but you have to think carefully and you' re always looking for clues that can help you solve the question. We often overthought things and didn't get the answer right," laughs Andy. "If you really don't know the answer, you can also ask for a tip on the app."
"We thought the escape tour was a huge success. We learned a lot about Texel and the VOC era in a highly entertaining way. Suddenly you stop at places you’d normally walk past, and you start paying more attention to details. We really enjoyed doing it as a family, because we had to work together as a team to get to the secret place as quickly as possible. We were proud to have succeeded and we celebrated with a nice lunch in Oudeschild.” Andy looks back.
"I've already recommended several people to do it. It's fun for everyone, young and old! In principle, anyone can take part in the escape tour, as long as they've got good legs. Towards the end, we had to cross a grass field, which is a bit more difficult if you're at all disabled. And, of course, you’re up against the clock, so the faster you are the higher your score."
