Operation Mindfall is an outdoor adventure that blends elements of escape rooms, geocaching, scavenger hunts, virtual mini-games and augmented reality, into one experience.
Armed with an iPad and an Action Pack full of gadgets You and your team of covert operatives have two hours to stop a shadow organization named Spider Tech, from activating a virus that infects the human brain. Still dormant, the virus is only waiting for a simple electronic signal to take control of the population. The virus will give them full control over every infected victim’s mind.
Your mission will be to prevent the spread of the virus by pouring the anti-virus into Norwich’s water supply and finding Spider Tech’s server room to prevent the diffusion of the electronic signal. To do this, you will have to follow the different hints left by a former Spider Tech scientist, Dr Bergmann.
Will you and your team be able to find the clues that are hidden throughout the city and stop the activation of the virus?

Lise Mortier expert rated this:Rated between 30 and 30 out of 5
Played: 17 Apr 2021 Team size: 4 Time taken: 70 Outcome: Successful escape!

Great fun to do during a lockdown with a nice weather.

It took us a bit of time to get use to the technology but the puzzle are increasingly difficult which allow you to get the hang of it.

We needed just over an hour to complete and didn't need any clue. It was fun but doesn't bit the atmosphere of their other indoor games!

Played when it first opened and was screamed at by the staff in a hotel because they no longer wanted the game players n there and had informed the company the previous week but they continued sending people in there.

Operation Mindfall is without a doubt in my mind one of the most creative and high-tech outdoor games on the market. I’m just so impressed by the tech! AIM Escape’s version in particular takes you through some of the most beautiful parts of London but through the eyes of the super secret spy organisation W.I.S.E. It’s perfect for tourists and locals alike!

This experience was so well executed, we were really impressed with it! The augmented reality aspects worked brilliantly and the story was great, with all of the puzzles well themed and great fun to solve. The difficulty level wasn’t too high but the variety of different puzzles was fantastic, with a big bag of tricks to keep things interesting.

Can you save the world from this mind controlling virus 🦠 🤔
