Room Escape Basel by Sherlock

In 2014, some guys from Sherlock LLC consisting of set builders, storytellers and engineers, brought the game concept of Room Escape to Basel. In extensive work, with a lot of passion, and with the latest technologies, we have created a world of outstanding experience at the highest level in a great scenery.

For the operations on site, we can count on the support of our game masters, several creative and diligent minds, every day.

Sherlock also provides various services in the field of Virtual Reality, Real Life Experiences, and Machine Learning. We deliver every block from the first sketch of the idea to the final implementation,
