Story

The infamous number 9 train “Mystery Express”, is a 9-car long luxury locomotive designed by none other than a genius puzzlemaker, whose penchant for the number 9 led to the affectionate nickname of “9 Train”. Crafted with the concept of a “wacky and whimsical adventure” in mind, each compartment is packed with a plethora of puzzles.

You have been invited to a private viewing to commemorate the completion of this luxury liner.

You step aboard Car No. 9 when suddenly a shrill alarm sounds. But wait! Why is the train starting to move? You didn’t hear anything about this! As the train rapidly picks up speed, you realize that at this rate it’s going to crash straight into the city of the terminal station in about 50 minutes!

If, by some miracle, you can reach Car No. 1 and pull the Emergency Break, it’s possible to stop the train. But, in order to reach that final car, you need to solve all of the puzzles in all 9 of the cars on this loopy locomotive!

9 rooms, 1 way out - can you conquer them all and stop the “9 Train”?

What is 9rooms?

9 rooms, 9 puzzles to solve.
You crack the code and break free from one locked room,
only to be locked straight into another.

There’s no ulterior motive here - no mastermind pulling
the strings behind the scenes.
This isn’t the time for any particular language skills,
or specific knowledge.

All you have to do is rely on your own intuition and wit
to solve the puzzles ahead of you.
The latest creation in a series of escape games like
you’ve never experienced before!
