The historical treasure hunt "2 hours in 1789, where you change history" is a team game (we recommend teams of 6-8 max.).

The context...

  • Mirabeau has a mission for you.
    he said "it's not a question of leading the revolution that's already been made, but of holding it back", so he's asking you to do just that: get together 57 million pounds in order to save France bankruptcy
  • For this a code exists and is hidden in Versailles. Thanks to it, an American sovereign wealth fund can be set up to save France. But the Americans don't want you to find this code...
  • Yet this fund exists. It had been negotiated in secret during the American War of Independence, which made us friends of the New World but ruined France, leading to the Revolution.

The route of the treasure hunt...

  • Take a tour of the historic Versailles district, where the 5 months that changed the history of France took place.
  • See the Hôtel des Menus Plaisirs, the Salle du Jeu de Paume, and the former Hôtel des Affaires étrangères et de la Marine.
  • A course of about 2.5 kms

Deferral conditions

  • You can postpone your participation until 24 hours before the date of the game.
  • All it takes is one e-mail or phone call
  • Deferral is free of charge

Your challenge!

Will you be able to save France from bankruptcy and change history?

You have 2 hours to find a code hidden in Versailles that will allow you to unlock the 57 million needed to hold back the Revolution!

Don't panic, your guide will be there to help you if you get lost or stuck.

To round off this treasure hunt in style...

  • Rendezvous in the Cour des Senteurs
  • A verbal joust is proposed
  • A tasting of Versailles chocolate or a mystery macaroon awaits you.
  • A reproduction of a historical engraving or an archival plan of Versailles - to be framed - will be offered to all participants.

Star Star Star Star Star - Great!
Written by Team Ruffini , on 27-05-2024

Family outing. 5 children aged 13 / 11 / 9 and 5. Everything is very easy on foot, even for a little one. Baptiste is fascinating and takes us right into the heart of the 1789 revolution! Even the teenagers felt that their school program was not the same, only better and much more exciting!

Star Star Star Star Star - Perfect for a family visit to Versailles

Very easy to book. Contact with the guide was quick and very friendly. Nice walk in Versailles on the "great" places of the revolution. Some very interesting explanations provided by the guide about this period. A little more anecdotes about each of the places we pass through. I'd recommend

Really worth it. Time flies when the unfolding of events is told in such exquisite detail and reinforced by the actual places where they took place. 5 stars for us!

Baptiste and his partner are excellent, patient, very professional and captivating. Thanks to both of them. Too bad the price is so high.....for 5 people, that's a hefty budget. Too expensive, unfortunately.

Star Star Star Star Star - Very nice experience!

An escape game to discover that the revolution also began in Versailles, with many traces still visible today! Our guide, Baptiste, was very friendly and made sure we had a great time! To be repeated!
