What to do if it rains
Dodo Quest is a unique game quest concept existing on the island. Imagine, you are in a locked room and you need to find a way to escape in 59 minutes. Seems like a video game or horror story movie? But no, at Dodo Quest it’s totally real! There are 5 games available. Each of the 5 games takes place in a separate room, with different themes and/or levels of difficulty.

Here’s a glimpse of the different rooms available at Dodo Quest and what they are all about:

Room 1: Spicy story Mystery of Pierre Poivre – 2 to 5 players (Difficulty level 6/10)

Pierre Poivre is a well-known figure from the time of the French colony on the island. He was a botanist who was on the lookout for different spices wherever he travelled to create his own unique plantations. As such he brought many valuable oriental spices for cultivation in Mauritius which was then known as Île-de-France.

In Room 1, you will be invited to continue Pierre Poivre’s legacy with your goal being to find the ‘golden’ nut, which is hidden in Poivre’s office, and plant it, hereby starting his historic plantation!But you will have to be quick – you have only 59 minutes to complete this task else the nut will dry up and will not be able to grow!

Room 2: Prison Break – 2 to 5 players (Difficulty level 7/10)

You surely know the famous TV show Prison Break, just as in the show in this game you and your friends are unjustly sentenced and locked away in a prison cell which is room 2, you will have to find a way to escape. According to prison legend, three prisoners which were there as you, managed to successfully escape from the cell by fooling the guards. The guards are absent and the new shift starts in one hour. Therefore you don’t have long to discover how they escaped and do the same to slip away!​

Room 3: Hunter`s Hut. Save the last Dodo! – 2 to 5 players (Difficulty level 7/10)

Here your mission is to save the last Dodo by finding the last remaining Dodo egg. But whilst looking for the long lost Dodo, you will stumble across a strange hunter’s hut in the forest which judging from the inside of the hut, appears to be obsessed with birds and has a blood lust to kill every last one of them! Your time is limited to get in the hut free the caged birds, find the last remaining Dodo egg before the hunter is back at sunset with his gun!

Room 4: Mental Hospital – 2 to 5 players (Difficulty level 8/10)

Here it’s all about being locked in a mysterious mental hospital where very strange medical experiments are taking place. The soft walls, straitjackets, and mad neighbours will encourage you escape from there... However beware, sometimes things are not always as simple as they appear to be, there may be more mystery to uncover.

Room 5: Buried – 2 players (Difficulty level 7/10)

This is the only game where 2 players only can play at once. It is the most challenging quest. Why? Because here you are not required to escape from a room, but rather from coffins within 45 minutes! The challenge of this game as you may imagine is not about ghosts or scary prisoners, it is rather a personal challenge to get over the fear that is in your head. Just imagine - 45 minutes.

Street Quests

Dodo Quest also organizes street quests where the game is open to general public wishing to participate. The street quest as its name suggest takes place on the streets in open air in designated areas of the island usually requiring the teams to have a car as the game does not take place in a single point and requires the teams to move.

Number of participants per team for the street quests depends on the quest organized. Sometimes number of teams which can participate as well may be limited, that is why it’s always better to book early if you are interested in any of the street quests organized.

What’s waiting for you during street quests? A lot of challenging tasks, funny things, unusual places and attractive prizes. Previous sessions of street quests which took place are:

a. Crazy Scientists Quest

b. Monster Quest which was a 6 hours game experience with the Game of Throne theme.

c. Bad Gangstas Quest, Super heroes never sleeps Quest & Zombie Night Quest were outstanding night challenges with a mix of treasure hunt, quest and checkpoint search.
