22.00

This trail across Barcelona’s bohemian Gracia is a playful and immersive adventure to experience this neighbourhood in a different way! You will solve 11 cryptic clues via our web app, simply using your unique link (which you receive via text message after payment) in your smartphone’s browser. The trail takes you discovering the hidden gems of Gracia, historic squares and narrow streets. The trail includes recommendations of our favourite shops, cafes, bars and terraces in this area.

The price for the trail is 22.00 euros per team. We recommended playing with 2-5 people per team.

You can play one trail per user at a time. You can share your unique link with your teammates so everyone can see the clues. Also handy in case your phone runs out of battery. If this happens, you can simply continue playing on another phone using the same link. If you want to play with more than one team, simply buy more than one trail. You will receive a unique link per trail, which can be opened on any smartphone with data.

Description

How Does It Work?

  • Sign up and pay for the trail across the lovely neighbourhood of Gracia online. You will receive a text message with your unique link within 1 hour from completing the payment.
  • Start near the statue of two women at the top of Passeig de Gracia, where it turns into Carrer Gran de Gracia between 10:00-17:00 on Monday-Saturday by opening the link, that you received upon purchase, in your browser on your phone. Simply press the Start button/link to start playing.
  • Solve 11 clues by typing the answers in the text box and hit the ‘I’ve got it!’ button to submit your answer.
  • Enjoy discovering the neighbourhood, the hidden gems across and recommendations to our favourite spots as each correct answer takes you to your next location within walking distance.
  • The answers to some clues are hidden inside places and spaces we like. We don’t take any commission for bringing you there – we simply think they add something extra to your experience.
  • Keep in mind that most answers are made up of one word only or a number – there are a few exceptions. 
  • Ask for a hint, by clicking the ‘I need help’ button, if you need a little help solving a clue. HINTS will get you nearer to the location where you need to search for the answer to your clue.
  • Please note there’s only one HINT per clue. Each HINT you ask for will add 10mins ‘penalty time’ to your overall time.
  • In case you’d like to skip a clue without solving it and want to receive the next one, press the ‘Skip this clue’ button. We recommend asking for a HINT before you skip a clue to make sure you are near the right spot to continue from.
  • Skipping a clue adds 20 minutes ‘penalty time’ to your overall time. 
  • You can always close and reopen your browser – and using your same unique link, you can continue playing where you left off.
