The game is .... €/team, which is 2 to 6 people.
Anyone who loves a good adventure, is not afraid to walk 2-3 km and enjoys teamwork can play. We do not have an age limit, but depending on the individual maturity of the kids, we recommend ParaPoly as a family activity for children of ages 8 and up, and from age 12, the game can be played independently by adventurous youngsters. It is not necessary to have prior knowledge of downtown Pécs so the game can be played during the course of a short excursion to the city, however, we also have challenges in store for those who were born and raised here.
All you will need is the blind map of the course you have chosen, a well-charged smartphone, 100 MB of mobile internet and a simple pen. Of course, it’s a good idea to wear comfortable shoes ;)
The length of the game is basically up to you, but it’s worth giving the adventure at least 2,5 hours. It will probably take longer than that depending on how much time you spend sightseeing, having coffee or lunch, etc. Keep in mind that you have a maximum of 48 hours to complete the game after you activate the ticket.
We tried to make sure that the tasks are clear, so we also subjected the game to a longer test period and in our experience, everyone can solve the puzzles if they use their heads a bit. If for some reason you still can’t crack the secret, you can ask for help. We will let you know how in the description of each station’s puzzle.
ParaPoly is a non-stop game where you can begin at any time and take a break at any time, but you have a maximum of 48 hours to solve the mysteries. We cannot extend the 48-hour time limit, so keep the weather in mind and only begin playing if you think you can finish within 2 days.
You can pay for your ParaPoly ticket with your bank card or via bank transfer. We will send you an invoice online when you pay. As you will not meet the ParaPoly team personally, we cannot accept cash payments.
