The world-famous 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"?


Style of play:

Indoor room, maximum of 4 people at a time.
