Activities for geeks

Role-playing, virtual reality, gaming arcades… Paris offers plenty of fun, digital experiences!


In the evenings or at weekends, many Parisian venues offer entertainment options for individuals and groups, including the increasingly popular escape games

The principle: locked in a themedroom (an office, a library, etc.), players must recover clues hidden all around them in order to get out of the room in less than an hour. A pioneer in the field, HintHunt Paris, located close to the Centre Pompidou, boasts eight rooms devoted to two main investigations. A great atmosphere and a fun evening guaranteed!

Near the Place de la République, Gamescape has the distinction of being inspired by the worlds of Georges Méliès, Jules Verne, JRR Tolkien and J.K. Rowling. The perfect combination of geek culture and role-playing! The different games (The Bastille Dungeon, Interview with Gustave Eiffel and The Alchemist's Challenge) that can be played in either English or French, in teams of up to 5 people, plunge players into a Paris cloaked in mystery and suspense!

Infiltrate Paris' most dangerous travel agency for a life-size role-playing game with The Trip. Not recommended for under 16, this experience for 2 to 7 players takes place over 2 hours, during which you will have to solve puzzles, hide, crawl, negotiate...and overcome your fears.

The Dark Dreams Paris - Clowns

In a slightly different style, The Dark Dreams offers an evening of thrills and suspense. In this venue, the objective is more about keeping your cool! On a labyrinth, visitors are introduced to a series of horrifying characters, each more terrifying than the next. Not for the faint-hearted!

Good news for Parisian geeks: experience another reality with virtual reality (VirtualTime Châtelet-MontorgueilVirtualTime Bastille-RépubliqueILLUCITY La Défense)! Equipped with a headset, the player chooses his gaming environment: arcade, exploration, simulation, discovery ... and plays alone or in a group, guided or not, in complete safety.

Book your virtual reality experience with VirtualTime

Mindout is the best known venue for virtual reality gaming, offering a space of 200 m² converted into a virtual arcade room, open every day except Mondays. Twenty games are available in their catalogue, from a solo stroll through Google Earth to multiplayer games. Most of the time, virtual reality is a solo experience … except at Virtual Room, a venue specializing in collaborative VR games. Welcoming up to four players, Virtual Room offers high quality VR experiences for about 45 minutes. The catalogue is limited but the experience is unique and very well-done!

Riding on the popularity of VR, the Mk2 cinema network has launched a cutting-edge virtual reality experience with Mk2vr. This VR device offers users an unforgettable experience, allowing them to live a film rather than simply watching it. A dozen programmes are available, such as Dive, an underwater odyssey to the depths of the ocean, in real time, in the company of William Trubridge, world champion and record holding freediver, and the futuristic I, Philip, which plunges the ‘virtual visitor’ into the last love story of writer Philip K. Dick.
