Albufeira Escape Room Experience
Adventure Hunt is an exciting and fun way to explore Albufeira’s Old Town on foot. Only 20€ per group, including 1 free T-shirt.
Adventure Hunt is similar to escape rooms and treasure hunts. Each puzzle uses items in plain sight, things like murals, statues, buildings and landmarks. It doesn’t matter if this is your first visit to Albufeira or you’re a local, the questions are designed to make you think and pay attention, making Adventure Hunt a fun activity for families, couples and groups.
The Adventure Hunt App helps you navigate between puzzles without simply asking you to follow a dot on a map. Hints can be used if you need assistance solving any of the puzzles. The App is available on both Android and iPhone.
The Albufeira Old Town hunt is set in and around the bustling cobblestone square and clifftop promenade, with interesting places to see, things to find and places to explore.
There are 3 options available for your Albufeira escape room experience; Advanced, Standard, and Family. The standard and family Albufeira Adventure Hunts consist of 20 clues spread over 2.1km. The advanced option adds a further 6 clues, making a total of 26 over a slightly longer route. The standard route has fewer cryptic clues than the advanced route. It takes around 2 hours to complete all the clues, but of course, you can linger to enjoy the bars, galleries, museums and shops you pass along the route.
To ensure that everyone is actively involved, a group size of 2-4 persons is recommended. If your group is larger, we suggest dividing into two different groups.
Challenge yourself and have a great time with friends and family.
The Albufeira Adventure Hunt is set in the old town of Albufeira. Choose between the standard, family and advanced routes. You can choose up to 4 T-shirts with your order.
- You do not need to select a date or time.
- You can do your Adventure Hunt at any time as the Adventure Hunt App guides you from clue to clue.
- Your booking confirmation email includes all of the information needed to start your Adventure Hunt!
Is Adventure Hunt Albufeira an escape room?
Not quite. Some of the puzzles are similar to those you’ll encounter in an escape room but Adventure Hunt involves walking around outside rather than being inside a building. With Adventure Hunt you’ll be exploring the resort you’re in and enjoying the views.
You’ll find yourself using local features, landmarks, signs and objects to answer a series of clues rather than working towards solving one end puzzle.
Best of all, you can take a break as and when you like – so if you do find yourself passing a café, bar or beach that takes your fancy you can just stop for a while. There is no time limit.
IS ADVENTURE HUNT Albufeira SUITABLE FOR FAMILIES LIKE TREASURE TRAILS?
Adventure Hunt Albufeira is perfect for families. In fact, it has a route that is specifically designed for families who enjoy a challenge.
Family hunts are for everyone and the whole group is encouraged to work together to solve the puzzles. All the information you need will be in plain sight – all you need to do is look around your surroundings for the answers to the clues.
Treasure Trails have been really successful with families in the UK. Adventure Hunt differs in that it’s an app-based challenge. If you enjoy one, you will enjoy the other.
CAN WE DO AN THIS FROM HOME?
Sorry. You do need to be physically present and on route. This is because the information you need to solve the clues will be something you can only see when you’re ‘on the ground’.
How Hard are the clues?
This is a difficult question because we all see things differently. One person might find a clue really easy, while someone else could spend longer hunting for the answer or need a hint to help them. One thing is certain: you will never be faced with impossible clues.
For most people, the standard option is ideal. Families with younger children are encouraged to choose the family option. If you’ve done similar puzzle-based hunts before, then choose the advanced option (this is longer with more clues).
IS THERE A SCORING SYSTEM?
The most you can score for each clue is 20 points. If you get an incorrect answer before choosing the right one, you’ll have a few points deducted. You also lose a few points when you use a hint but it’s better than becoming frustrated and giving up.
The important thing is to enjoy all the clues, whether you find them easy or not. Remember, the aim is to work together as a group and have fun.
CAN WE CHALLENGE ANOTHER GROUP?
Challenging other groups is one of the fun ways to join in. The live scores page on this website allows you to track how another group is doing. If you are doing Adventure Hunt in several groups, let us know and we will provide logins so that all your groups can start at the same time, on different puzzles.
CAN WE DO THIS INSTEAD OF A WALKING TOUR of albufeira??
Adventure Hunt isn’t intended to be a replacement for a historical or guided walk of Albufeira; however, you will have the opportunity to explore the vicinity and even wander off route for a while if you spot something which interests you.
The focus is on having fun not learning, but there’s nothing stopping you from reading the interpretation boards or plaques you pass or popping into any historical or cultural buildings along the way.
