The trail with the secrets of the Brno genius Kurt Gödel, full of logical ciphers, tasks and hidden nooks and crannies

Do you like to solve ciphers and logical tasks? Do you like challenges? Wondering how to entertain your children (even teenagers!) during the lockdown and spend a pleasant time with them?

We have arranged 20 entrances for you to the outdoor cipher trail of the VIDA! amusement park, just for you. It will take you through the streets of Brno by following the footsteps of scientist Kurt Gödel. It is prepared for families with children from the age of 8 as well as for teams of individuals or roommates.

What to look forward to?

Together you will solve a lot of fun and challenging tasks and discover the secrets that this important logician and friend of Albert Einstein left in his hometown. Gradually you will visit several places in the city centre.

By solving the cipher and entering the correct password into the web application you will find out where the next challenge is. With each cipher solved, you get closer to solving a mysterious case. There are hints in several levels prepared for less experienced puzzlers (or impatients). It will be up to you how difficult the path to your destination you choose. Successful solvers will reveal the surprising secret of Kurt Gödel!
