Lovers of escape games and Sherlock Holmes at heart, Lock Academy, located in the Châtelet and Les Halles districts of Paris, needs you! This escape game store, which hides a private detective school, faces mysteries that even the most gifted can't solve, and invites you to lead your own investigation to become the best detective... Ready to solve Professor Lock's riddles?

Attentionescape game fans! The Lock Academy, escape game brand and mysterious detective school, whose two establishments are located on rue Coquillière (1st) and boulevard Sébastopol (2nd), is encountering numerous problems and is the scene of exceptional events putting budding detectives to the test: thefts, assaults, disappearances, and even crimes!

All these mysteries have prompted Professor Lock, founder of the academy, to call in teams of outside investigators, in the hope of finding out what's going on at the school. The best detectives take it in turns to tackle three mysteries, in teams of 3 to 6 players. The rooms are also available in English, to suit French and foreign players visiting the capital or joining a bilingual team.

For each investigation, the apprentice detectives have one hour to solve the mystery in the Lock Academy rooms. And even if they don't reveal much, the Lock Academy rooms are full of secrets, each more unpredictable than the last: hidden passageways, special effects, connected objects with astonishing powers... If you're a Sherlock Holmes at heart, it's high time you tackled the mysteries of Lock Academy with friends, colleagues or even the whole family (with children over 8!).
