  • This investigation takes approximately two hours, with an additional 30 minutes for setup and post hunt resolution. If you want to take your time, the game can last three hours. Please note that regardless of progress in the treasure hunt, it automatically ends after 3 hours. If participants have not finished by then, we will come to retrieve the equipment wherever they are.

  • The tour starts in front of Passage Verdeau and ends in Palais Royal's Garden (it ends at a different place from the starting point). 

  • The hunts are suitable for ages 8 and up. We recommend this tour for kids aged 8 or older because they must know how to read in order to enjoy the roadbook. However, younger kids can join and they will enjoy it but adults will need to help them.

  • The tour is available from 10AM to 8PM, Monday to Saturday, according to the opening hours of the galeries. 

  • The activity is not subject to favorable weather conditions. You can do it all the time except on sundays, when some Passages are closed. From time to time, the Galerie Colbert may unexpectedly close without prior notice to the visitors. In this case, we will show you photos of the puzzles to solve upon your arrival.
