Le Hangar de la Baule opened its doors in June 2020, much to the delight of thrill-seekers. It’s the city’s first escape game. The site is located in the immediate vicinity of Le Pouliguen and the beach. It is part of the Hangar à Énigmes group, which has already opened a location in Deauville, the first on the Côte Fleurie in Normandy.

The concept of escape games is gaining increasing popularity. Locked in a room symbolizing an enclosed space, participants must work together to solve the enigmas that will enable them to escape, within a limited timeframe.

Throughout your game, a Game Master will follow your progress using microphones and cameras, and accompany you with clues. No special knowledge is required to take part.

Are you up to the challenge set by Hangar de la Baule in this room? With treasure chests, jingle bells and skull and crossbones flags, you’ll be plunged straight into a magical atmosphere.

Imagine yourself aboard the bastion Circolo, in 1820. You’re one of her crew. You’re on your way to the Caribbean Sea, when suddenly your ship is stormed by ferocious pirates known as the Alpagos. They board the ship, plunder it and lock you in the hold. Their latest dirty trick? They’ve cut holes in the ship’s hull and let it sink with its occupants… You have one hour to do the impossible and avoid sinking with the Circolo.

The room can accommodate between 2 and 6 players, aged 8 and over. Difficulty is 3 out of 5. Instructions are given in French and English. The game is also accessible to the hearing impaired and pregnant women.

Thrill-seekers are in for a treat! You’ll find a bank robbery atmosphere in two of the Hangar de la Baule’s rooms. If you’re coming with friends, this is the ideal game. Split into two groups, you can take part in « battle mode » by booking both rooms at the same time. It’s up to you to see which group manages to get out of the room before the other!

You take on the role of a team of experienced bank robbers who have successfully pulled off over twenty heists. Your challenge? Convince the famous Professor, a renowned thief, to trust you to carry out the Heist of the Century with him. And to do so, he suggests you repeat his first heist, the Hangar Banking Group heist. The loot is worthy of the challenge: a superb diamond.

He observes you to assess your level, but he doesn’t help you. He’s even warned the police, who will be here in an hour!

Hurry up and rob the bank without getting arrested!

The hall is accessible to pregnant women, the hearing-impaired and people with reduced mobility. Children as young as 8 can take part.
