The 15th Hidden City Game on 21 August provides Beijingers again the opportunity to see their city with different eyes and experience it in a completely new way. This month's event location is in the hidden forests of Jade Island and Beihai Park. Participants are invited to explore all these hidden spots, unlock its secrets, participate in fun activities and be back in time to win great prizes.
In July, Hidden City Game: Hutong Racing attracted over 180 participants and 5 elite teams that signed up to compete for the challenging Masters Cup. For the first time, frequent players had to solve even more cryptic questions, master tricky activities and still outpace the other teams to win the hotly contested Hidden City Cup.
With the help of the last participants, the team keeps working to make improvements. David Latimer, the founder of Beijing Improbable Guides, said it was great to see the game translated into Spanish and having Chinese as our working language. We again got high feedback scores, and now we have even more people asking us, “what’s next?”
“It is a really good concept - everyone loves it. I turn up every time” (Jay).
“My friends and I are looking forward to the next one” (Shannon).
