Luz Escape Room Experience

Adventure Hunt is a new way to enjoy a walk and have some fun in the Praia da Luz sun. 

Adventure Hunt is a new outdoor escape room experience in Praia da Luz. It is similar to escape rooms and scavenger hunts. Each puzzle uses items in plain sight.  They might be murals, statues, buildings or landmarks.  The questions are designed to make you think and pay attention, making for a fun group activity.

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 pretty seaside town of Praia da Luz makes a great location for an Adventure Hunt. You can combine the hunt with a morning or afternoon on the gorgeous sandy beach, and/or stop for lunch at one of the palm tree-lined promenade cafes. If you’re feeling energetic, there are some fabulous clifftop walks from Luz too, as well as water sports equipment to rent.

The Luz Adventure Hunt starts and ends at the Credit Agricola bank by the church in the centre of the town. If you are visiting by public transport, there is a bus stop opposite.

There are 3 Adventure Hunt options available. The Standard and Family hunts consist of 19 clues spread over 2km. The Advanced option adds a further 3 clues, making a total of 22 over a 2.5km route. The Standard route has fewer cryptic clues than the Advanced 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.

Is Adventure Hunt Luz an escape room?

Adventure Hunt Luz is not an escape room but it is a fun experience with similar challenges and is enjoyable for people who enjoy escape rooms.  Everything takes place outside, at your own pace – there is no race against the clock.  In fact, we encourage people to take a break for a drink or something to eat and enjoy the lovely surrounding that the Adventure Hunt is set in.

The real similarity is that the puzzles require a degree of teamwork and lateral thinking.  

Is Adventure Hunt a walking tour of Luz?

The Adventure Hunt in Luz takes you on some interesting streets in the old town and near the harbour.  It shows you some places that you were possibly not aware of.  However, it is not a replacement for a historical or guided walk as the focus is on having fun rather than learning.

Is This New Luz escape room experience suitable for families?

Yes, Adventure Hunt is great for families.   Choose the Family option when you make your booking if you have children under the age of 8-12.

are the clues complicated?

This is a really difficult question! What we can say is that out of the 10 initial test groups no single clue was found to be difficult by all groups.  Every group did find a couple to be quite challenging, but it was almost always different clues from the other groups.  

So we can assure you that you are not faced with any impossible puzzles.  If you have enjoyed an escape room or other outdoor puzzle game, then choose the advanced route which has 6 more clues and slightly more cryptic wording.  If you are a family group then you should choose the family option.  If unsure, choose the standard route.

How do I win?

Having fun is winning so there is no need to be too focused on the score.   That said, Adventure Hunt has a scoring system, with each clue offering a maximum of 20 points.  Collect as many points as you do your Adventure Hunt and compete with friends and other groups.  

Can we compete against another group?

Live scores are available within the Adventure Hunt App. You will be able to see the scores of everyone doing the same hunt as you on the Clue Completed page. We encourage a 10-minute break between groups.

Please contact us if you have multiple groups. We can put up a specific configuration so that all of your groups can start on separate clues at the same time.

About Luz

Originally a fishing town in the 17th-19th Centuries, Praia da Luz is now a popular seaside resort, but it has retained much of its charm. There are narrow cobbled streets to explore, with traditional blue and white houses covered in bougainvillea, and a beautiful promenade, decorated with tall palm trees, that runs along the remains of an old fortress wall.

The beach is fine golden sand, with rockpools that reveal themselves at low tide. During the summer, there are plenty of sunbeds to chill out on, as well as a range of water sports equipment for hire. Towering above the beach is Rocha Negra, the black cliff, from where you can watch a magnificent sunset.

Lunch and dinner options are plentiful, from traditional Portuguese dishes and fresh seafood to tasty pizzas, burgers, and even a Sunday roast. There are also plenty of places to enjoy a cold beer, or a sundowner cocktail overlooking the sea.
