What's on

After Hours: Code Breakers


Thu 6 December 2018


6:30 pm – 10:00 pm


Techniquest and Breakout Cardiff are collaborating to bring you a game, within a game, WITHIN A GAME!

With an unlimited amount of creativity and knowledge of puzzles and riddles, Breakout Cardiff will be bringing teaser treats for you to play with and test yourselves. However, not only do you have to try and complete five different puzzles, you must also join them in a giant game of hide and seek and actually find the sneaky staff.

Play in and explore the entirety of Techniquest, find the hidden Breakout tables, solve their puzzles and break the code! Do you think you can use logic AND think outside of the box? Can you break the code?

The 5 puzzles you will have to solve:

  1. Top Trumps

    New Zealand have challenged us to a game that is friendly. Help build a team that would give them envy.

  2. Poker Chips

    Gather your chips with luck and skill. This may not be poker, but a puzzle to thrill.

  3. Puzzle

    Don’t you just hate it when a puzzle is missing a few pieces…

  4. Scrabble Pieces

    Scrabble with a different aim, will you figure out our game?

  5. Quiz

    Questions that will tease your brain. Will you solve them or go insane?

And that’s not all…

As well as the puzzles to solve, there will also be a live show in the theatre about data security by the University of South Wales, planetarium shows, and of course the two floors of hands-on exhibits for you to play with! Plus food and a fully-licensed bar.
