“Hey Paul, do you have a good time, you’re really on a very special holiday.” -“Good evening, yes that’s right! Yes, I am having a BBQ here in Germany with 60 unknown people”- “Yes, but I’ve never heard of it: a Wacky Wheels Roadtrip. How do you get there and what exactly is it?”- “eh, yes, we were doing an escape room and there was a flyer about the largest escape room in Europe and then we thought hey that sounds nice.”
Cottage in the Woods
A Print & Play that you don’t need to print to play
Before going any further I should point out that we have classed this as a print and play, as technically it is, but we played it without printing anything and just used it directly from the PDF file, so if you don’t have a printer, don’t let that stop you from playing.
Anyway, we’ve had a copy of Cottage in the Woods in our ‘to-do’ pile for much longer than we would like so we decided to have a binge weekend where we caught up on a number of games that we had been meaning to play. I think this was number four of seven for that weekend.
Cottage in the Woods
Spoiler free review
Today a review for the escape game Cottage in the Woods by Wacky Wheels. Wacky Wheels is a Dutch based company providing escape and mystery games in digital format, but also road trips with escape room puzzles which help you to reach your destination. This escape game is only available in digital format.
The story is about you and a group of friends who go out on a hiking trip in a forest. During a hail storm you decide to hide in an empty cabin found in the woods. From there you’re in for an adventure. I liked the story and the ending and I was curious to know what would happen next.

Wacky Wheels currently offers 3 digital escape games (1 free and 2 available for purchase). We played all 3 of them and below are our thoughts on each of them.
Whole of Europe as escape room | 30 June 2019
Lock yourself up in small rooms and then come out with hints. The escape room is popular. The Netherlands currently has eight hundred escape rooms spread over five hundred locations, making the phenomenon one of the fastest growing sectors in our country. But it’s getting even better now. In September 2019, Wacky Wheels will take you on a weekend of puzzling journeys through Europe, without any clue about the final destination.
Wacky Wheels turns Europe into an escape room | 30 June 2019
Europe as an escape room. Wacky Wheels combines the idea of the popular escape room with a surprising road trip. You make your way through Europe while puzzling and do not know where you will end up. But at the finish there is a party.
The escape room in the form of a roadtrip | 27 June 2019
You leave without any clue where you will end up: that is the idea of the “escape room on wheels”. By solving puzzles along the way you decipher the route and you can travel further to the final destination. The first edition of Wacky Wheels begins in September 2019, a road trip through Europe disguised as an escape room.
Escape weekly 15 – 2019 | 12 April 2019
The organizers of Wacky Wheels, themselves escape room enthusiasts, are busy organising a three-day event. The first edition of Wacky Wheels will start in Eindhoven on 19-21 September. In teams of 2 to 4 people, people go a route in their own car (or motorhome or motorcycle) where they have to solve escape room-like puzzles. The end point is unknown, but will not be in the Netherlands. Who will participate?
