Welcome to the future of escape rooms

What if you could bring an escape room experience anywhere you wanted to? Cryptic Cargo is the first truly portable and self-controlled escape room experience in the world.

It combines a ready-to-play escape room, packed in an easily movable suitcase, and a mobile app that helps players by providing hints. The app also complements the experience with interactive clues, tasks and an immersive soundscape. Now you choose where, when and how you want to play!

An escape room in a suitcase

The Cryptic Cargo escape game suitcase is easily movable, and includes everything needed for a full-fledged escape room experience. In practice this means physical items, locks and containers like in any other escape room. The items are ready for you as you receive them, just open the bag and play! If you want to add extra immersion, you can also place the game items to your preferred game area before the game.

The games work perfectly as a team building activity, program for a pre-Christmas party, bachelor or bachelorette party or why not a birthday party!


The app

The Cryptic Cargo escape room app functions as a dashboard for anything and everything needed for a great escape game experience. It provides the players with a changing soundscape, a timer and interactive clues and tasks. With the app, the players get hints whenever they feel like they need them as well as instructions on how to play, and how to build the game up again if needed. With the app, it is possible to even change the settings of the game and choose to play the way you want!

The app is available in English and Finnish.

How to start a game

Our players say

An ingenious game

The game offers a challenge and makes the players hooked so that one doesn’t even feel the need for a physical room. Perfect for an evening with friends or colleagues! 

Maija, 35 years

Effing thrilling

I can’t even describe how enstein we felt when we solved some of the puzzles! The game had a great combination of different kinds of problems to solve. 

Mattias, 30 years

Great even for a first-timer

As a first-timer I felt it was really nice that there was so much to do during the game. The first puzzles went completely over my head, but I learned a lot
while playing and by the end I had managed to solve several by myself and feel accomplished.

This makes cryptic cargo special 

Cryptic Cargo games include everyone

The unique concept of Cryptic Cargo makes escape rooms truly available to everyone. Some people can feel anxiety from the prospect of being locked inside a room, while others can experience difficulties or be entirely unable to move around a room that is not handicap-accessible. A Cryptic Cargo experience includes no locked rooms, so that even the most anxious individuals can partake wholly in the experience. Cryptic Cargo escape room games can be played on any surface, so they are ideal options for the disabled.

Cryptic Cargo has been played by everything from Escape Room first-timers to seasoned veterans, and has been universally liked by all. The various problems and puzzles require highly differing forms of problem solving and analytical thinking, which means every single player will feel valuable during the experience.

You choose how you want to play

When playing Cryptic Cargo, you are completely in control of your experience. You can play where, when and how ever you want. All Cryptic Cargo games come with carefully planned default settings, but you can always change or disable the game time, additional time and game sound if you want.

During your experience you can eat and drink, use your phone and even take photos as much as you want, you choose!

*Please don’t share solutions to puzzles online to ensure a great experience for everyone

Play as many times you want without extra cost

When you rent Cryptic Cargo, you will get the game to yourself for a whole day (up to 26 hours). During this time, you are allowed to play the game as many times as you want: the app will provide simple instructions on how to build the game up again.

This means you can divide your friends and play in smaller teams, or even one by one to see who is the escape room champion! You can also easily host an escape room at your party or special event where as many teams as you want will have time to play.

Make any occasion amazing

Cryptic Cargo is excellent entertainment for all occasions: parties, team-building or get-togethers. Are you in Helsinki? Order the suitcase to your hotel and enjoy the thrill of escaping after sightseeing!
