Pepe the pirate (for children 5-8 years)
Pepe is confused. The scatterbrained pirate hit his head yesterday during a big storm. As a result, he has forgotten a lot of things. On his desk he found photos of himself in unknown places and lots of keys. But he doesn't know where the places in the photos are, nor why he has all those keys. Pepe will be happy if you help him to find the places and to assign the keys. First, visit the places on the photos and try the locks. After that you will even find a treasure! Afterwards, each of you paints your own treasure box.
Costs: 90,00 €
Jewel robbery (for children from 6-10 years)
A spy has found out about precious jewels in the museum and has infiltrated there as an "employee". As a team you now find yourselves in the museum. The insider teaches you numerous tricks so that you can carry out your coup unnoticed. Will you manage to find out where the jewels are hidden and bring the treasures into your possession?
