In 1913, there was a spectacular robbery, in which 1,200,000 marks in gold were stolen from the Mint House on Katajanokka, close to the center of Helsinki. One of the robbers, Kalle Lusi, was arrested the next morning and did his time in the Katajanokka prison, until his death in tuberculosis in 1917. Lusi never revealed his partner in crime, who hid the gold somewhere. Strangely enough, it seems like the police hushed things up – maybe they were protecting the partner, or the gold? Then World War I broke out and the case was hidden in the archives.

A year or so ago, a young police officer called Maija Aho, born Lusi, tried to reopen the case. She was brusquely told not to touch it. Before the order, though, she managed to find out some details and copy the old case documentation, which she now gives over to the team who is willing to solve the case once and for all.

To aid you on the mission, you will get a bag with some important items and an iPad to guide you on your way.

This outdoor game is perfect for two teams of 2-6 persons – maybe competing against each other?

If you play this game in two teams, one team follows in the tracks of Kalle Lusi, while the other team explores the partner’s movements, until one or both teams find out what happened to the stolen gold! It is also possible to play this game with one team only.

The age recommendation for this game is 11+. Note, that at least one of the players must be over 16 years old.


Booking instructions:
Outdoor games are booked per team instead of by the number of players, and each team can consist of 2-6 players. If you want to book one game, add one slot to your cart. The calendar’s “1 player” indicates one game, and there is no option to select the number of players for outdoor games.
For example, if you have 6 players but want to compete in two teams, select 2 games. In this case, make the booking by selecting the same time slot twice and adding it to your cart.
For bookings involving more than two teams, please contact us via email at contact@escaperoom.fi.
