If you’re getting bored with typical sightseeing and casual strolling around the city, let me suggest a spot which will engage you a bit more than a bar or a museum. It’s called ParaPark, it’s the first place of this kind in Zagreb, and its main purpose is to make you figure out… how to leave.
This is how it works: you assemble a team of 2-6 friends, pick one of two rooms ParaPark provides, then get locked in. The rooms are filled with riddles you need to solve, hidden objects you need to find and clues pointing you in the right direction. When you’re done, if you’re done, the door is unlocked and you’re free to go. You have an hour to complete the challenge – if you fail, you get out anyway, but your photo is probably ending up on the wall of shame. (Seriously, don’t fail. Not cool. That’s why you have your team with you.)
For obvious reasons, I wouldn’t recommend ParaPark to extreme claustrophobics. Other than that, you should really check this place out. Calling it an adventure park would probably be going too far, but it does provide a certain thrill – everything seems more exciting when a clock is ticking out. Make a reservation and go find out why people are paying just to escape.
