Come and discover the Eiffel Tower adventure game on March 30 and 31

In honor of its 130th birthday, the Eiffel Tower is offering visitors an adventure game to learn a little more about the Tower and its history. Entitled "The Secret Dossier on the Eiffel Tower" and designed with the authors of the musical show "The 300-meter Tower", the adventure game will be offered to visitors from March 30, 2019 until the end of the year.
For the birthday weekend of March 30 and 31 (the Eiffel Tower was inaugurated on March 31, 1889), we are launching the adventure game and offering visitors the opportunity to discover it in the form of a scripted tour that’s part treasure hunt and part immersive theater. All along the route, sketches will be performed by actors dressed in costumes from the musical show “The 300-meter Tower." They will give clues, evoke the life of the Tower in 1889 and animate the visit to the monument.
So don't miss this festive weekend, during which bands and brass bands - including that of Centrale Supelec, Gustave Eiffel's school – will animate the first and second floors of the monument and the Esplanade in the evening.
How does the adventure game work?
The adventure game is of course free for all visitors to the Tower (and available in English). Starting Saturday, March 30, game booklets will be available in self-service at the entrance to the pillars of the Tower or to be picked up at the Pavillon Ferrié on the 1st floor.
The challenge? Unlock the secret of the Eiffel workshops alone or in teams, with family or friends, to find the name of a confidential dossier, by deciphering a series of riddles scattered throughout the 1st floor as well as in the Tower’s gardens.
"This form appears repeatedly on the 1st floor of the Tower. Will you be able to find it again and complete the diagram?" or even "No need to exhaust yourself counting the number of steps to climb to reach the 1st floor: all you need to do is have observant feet.” Each mystery will help you learn a little more about the monument and its history.
A helping hand: on the game's panels, QR codes lead players to video clues from their smartphones. An experience not to be missed for lovers of history and secrets, young and old alike!
The musical show "The 300-meter Tower"
The creators of the musical show “The 300-meter Tower" are the designers of the Eiffel Tower adventure game, and also offer a scripted route accompanied by their actors for the launch of the adventure game on March 30 and 31 at the Tower. To extend the immersion in the history of the Tower's birth, discover their musical show at theThéâtre des Mathurins from March 21 to June 29, 2019. Go to the show's official website
