Any questions ?

Here are the most frequent questions about this enigma

How long will it take?

Uncle Cornelius is exceptionally long, lasting a maximum of 90 minutes (instead of the usual 60). Including your arrival at the Grand Trip Trap Hotel and the fact that you will certainly want to go for a drink at the Catalpa Bar after the game, plan for a bit more time…

Are there any risks involved in the activity?

Absolutely not! Our adventures rely on the quality of the settings, the ingenuity of the mechanisms and a captivating story to take you on a journey. You are never really locked in our rooms as an EXIT button allows you to leave at any time. Also, our fully trained and dedicated staff watches over you on control screens throughout the game, ready to intervene immediately if necessary.
However, if you are prone to claustrophobia (fear of small spaces), nyctophobia (fear of the dark) or doubt your physical agility, do not hesitate to call us to discuss it!
Also, Uncle Cornelius really wants his guest to feel at home. Avoid wearing shoes with heels or to fancy clothes and go for something more casual.

Do we have to arrive at the same time as the reservation?

No, it would be best to arrive 15 minutes early, the time for our hotel concierge to check you in properly.

I'm pregnant, so I'm a bit hesitant to come and do this adventure.

We understand very well, but it shouldn’t be a problem. If you are not right on the brink of the happy event, The House of Uncle Cornelius is suitable for pregnant women. Without revealing anything of what awaits you in the room, it will be perfectly possible for you to leave it to your companions to carry out the less comfortable tasks. Besides, we can also install a chair for your ease and comfort, if necessary. If in doubt, please call us.

Is this room suitable for people with reduced mobility?

Unfortunately, the configuration of The House of Uncle Cornelius makes it impossible for people in wheelchairs to access it. Even crutches will be a challenge. Please call us if you have any doubts.

Can my children come?

Yes, if they are at least 10 years old. If they are under 16 they must be accompanied by 2 adults.

Can I change or cancel my reservation?

When booking online, you can choose the “refundable booking” option. This option covers a large number of contingencies and can even be activated after the date of your session.
If you do not wish to choose this option, you can modify or cancel your reservation up to 7 days before the date of the event. After this period, our “live” activities requiring dedicated staff cannot be refunded nor moved.

Should I take anything special?

Each and every one of your abilities will be useful, especially your eyesight. If you need glasses to see in poor lighting conditions, don’t forget them! On the other hand, your smartphone will be of no use to you!
