The Test of Tykir - Escape Room Launch
The Test of Tykir is an escape room experience designed by Escape Quest for Parks Canada, and based in the legends of the Vinland Sagas. In this game, you will have 45 minutes to search the Servant’s Hut for clues and solve puzzles in the hopes of finding the Map to the Grapes before your time runs out. Knowledge gained on your visit to L’Anse aux Meadows National Historic Site is sure to give you an edge in this live action interactive adventure! Developing new and innovative programs and services allows more Canadians, including youth and newcomers, to learn about our environment and history.
You are a member of Leif Eriksson’s crew, and you have proven your bravery and your strength on the cold northern seas and in strange new lands. It is your wits, however, that can earn you the respect of your legendary leader, and the good fortune that comes with it.
While further south at Hop, Tykir, the family servant of Leif Eriksson, went missing, but had returned at sunset with an incredible discovery! He had found grapes in the wilds of this strange country, and he alone knows where to find them. Leif has declared that he will share this rare and valuable resource only with those Vikings that prove themselves worthy.
Now that the crew has returned to Straumfjord, Tykir has drawn up a map to the grapes location, and he has locked it away in the Servant’s Hut. The members of this noble crew who can demonstrate a keen eye and sharp mind will be able to retrieve it.
Can you pass The Test of Tykir and take your place at the side of the legendary Leif Eriksson, or will you walk away with the taste of sour grapes in your mouth?
