A new outdoor escape game will turn Aberdeen into a giant playground next month.
The Big Escape Live has been devised to allow hundreds to take part while complying with social distancing guidelines.
The interactive, GPS-activated experience, involves groups of up to six people who can play against each other, with a leaderboard updated in real time to give those taking part a competitive edge.
Teams have to solve puzzles, crack codes and complete challenges to take down Big Al’s casino in a classic heist.
Mark French, from The Big Escape Live, said: “As the biggest city in the north-east, it makes perfect sense to bring the game to Aberdeen.
“There’s a flexible start time from Provost Skene’s House in Flourmill Lane giving people the opportunity to play at different times.
“But as teams navigate the streets together, they’ll be near to each other which will hopefully create a buzz around the city, especially if they’re playing in fancy dress which is optional.
“Teams can choose when they play the game as tickets are valid for six months but after being locked in for so long, we wanted to try and create a fun and safe outdoor atmosphere for people to enjoy.”
The live event takes place on August 22, and tickets can be booked at www.thebigescape.com
