It is the 18th May 2019. The Household Cavalry Regiment are due to parade through Windsor in 20 minutes. They are leaving their home at Combermere Barracks where they have been based for more than 200 years. You want to see their final march past the Guildhall and see the splendour of the Band of the Household Cavalry.
Everyone else has made their way to the corn market in anticipation. But they have forgotten you and locked all the doors in the building. You are trapped in the Council Chamber.
You can escape through the series of rooms in the Guildhall but only if you know the codes to the doors. There are some clues to help you, but you will have to rely on your own powers of observation and quick thinking if you are to make it outside on time to see the guards march past.
Instructions for taking part:
For the optimal experience, this escape room is best played on a laptop.
Please open our virtual tour in a separate browser window: https://www.pan3sixty.co.uk/virtual_tours/windsor-guildhall/museum-virtual-tour.html
For each room you are trapped in, you will need to use the virtual tour to look around for clues. Please start by selecting to view the Chamber.
There will be other videos and images embedded into the google forms pages that will help you.
There will be a few questions for each room. You need to combine the answers to create the code to exit the room (i.e. if the answer to Q1 is 2020, the answer to Q2 is 2019 and the answer to Q3 is red, the escape code would be 20202019RED). Please always use capitals.
We estimate it will take 20 minutes for you to complete your mission, should you choose to accept it.
You can google the odd question, but it's your problem solving that will be your greatest asset.
