Employees of the Lufthansa group, affiliated partner companies, sponsors, and all personnel involved in designing and implementing the competition and their family members are not entitled to participate.

The event and associated competition are intended exclusively for participants who work at a travel agency in Germany, Austria, Slovakia and Switzerland.

Compliance

With their confirmation of participation, the participant declares that they will comply with any requirements under employment law or service regulations, and in particular that they have the approval of their supervisor/employer to accept any prizes they may receive.

In addition, the participant declares that they are not a public official and that they are not currently involved in any contractual negotiations, joint projects and/or any kind of award and/or purchasing processes with the Lufthansa Group on behalf of their employer or any third party.

Registration for and participation in the event

Each participant must personally book their desired time slot on their desired date. The number of slots that are still available is indicated on the booking page. Group bookings are not allowed. Bringing accompanying companions is not allowed.

Lufthansa shall accept no liability for technical faults during registration.
If the Escape Room Game cannot be offered during the booked time slot due to technical and/or logistical reasons, or because there are too few participants, the participant shall have no right to receive another time slot. However, participants whose time slots are canceled can book another date and/or another time slot on the same day if these are still available.

After successfully registering, a confirmation notice will be sent to the e-mail provided in the booking, containing a personal registration number. The participant is responsible for correctly entering their e-mail address. With your registration, you agree that Lufthansa may send you this confirmation e-mail and possibly other personalized e-mails in association with the event.

To participate in the Escape Room Game and the competition ratings, each participant must arrive promptly (15 minutes before their booked time) on the date of the event at the Escape Room Truck. If the participant arrives to the event location late, the organizer reserves the right to deny their participation.

The event organizer is entitled to make audio and film recordings or take pictures of the customer and their fellow players during the game as necessary to carry out the game. These recordings and pictures will not be saved, but will be deleted directly after the end of the game.

Bringing personal food and drinks into the room is not allowed. In addition, participants are not allowed to take heavy/bulky objects or weapons into the room. Access to the event and participation in the competition will be denied if the participant comes to the event severely intoxicated. Smoking is prohibited throughout the entire event area.

Game process and awarding prizes

Up to ten players can play per time slot, the minimum are two players.



Each group has 40 minutes to successfully play the Escape Room Game. All teams that successfully solve the Escape Room will be included in the top rankings list on the event microsite. The game leader will give the team tips during the game if they are unable to continue. Each tip (actively requested by the team or given by the game master) will add 2 minutes to the team's time. The total time is used to determine the winner, e.g. the team's actual playing time plus the total of additional minutes added for tips. This may result in a total playing time of more than 40 minutes.



Each team will receive a team name. The name will be listed along with their total playing time, city and region on the microsite (listings will always be added at the start of the following week). Employees from different travel offices within a German region (north, central, south), Austria (Slovakia is also included in the rankings for Austria), and Switzerland may work together in one group; there will be one main prize, as well as a 2nd and 3rd place. In addition, there will be an overall winning team. Any team which has won their rankings for a specific region, for instance, and is also the overall winning team will automatically be upgraded to the overall victory. The second and third place teams in this region will retain their places and will receive the associated prize. The team with the shortest playing time in their region, or the team with the shortest playing time of all regions and countries, will be the winning team.



Players will learn their time directly from the game leader after the game, and can track their time live during the game on a monitor.



No auxiliary materials or mobile devices may be taken into the room. Making audio or video recordings, or taking photographs in the room (for instance of solutions) is not permitted. Any type of fraud during the game will be punished by disqualification of the entire group. Each person may only take part in the game once.
