Le Cube Secret – Out along Highway 15, where Rue Michelin comes to an end, there’s a closely guarded secret. An entertainment concept that combines quick thinking, keen observation, and an intensive fun workout for your grey matter in an environment totally removed from everyday life. Inside a huge metal cube – a structure like no other – the Le Cube Secret escape game reveals four apartments with amazing decors featuring period pieces, antiques, and images evoking a particular escape room theme. Like Lucky the Mafioso and his 1940s New York underworld. Or the 1970s kitchen where The Kidnapper lurks. An elegant living room housing the collections of The British Colonel. Or the shabby, run-down apartment of a junior police, The Detective. A strange, unique atmosphere pervades the secret cube, no matter what apartment you choose.
Since opening last year, Le Cube Secret has welcomed over 10,000 visitors from all over for thrilling escape room adventures.
From financier to treasure hunter
Le Cube Secret designer Sylvain Rivard was a treasure hunter of another sort for 15 years before he took up the escape game adventure. After a successful career in finance, Sylvain, a self-taught problem solver and puzzle enthusiast, made a life-altering change, travelling around the world, solving mysteries and competing in treasure hunts. After working tirelessly for close to two years, he and his wife succeeded in opening their own escape room and adventure game centre, presenting fascinating mysteries to an eagerly awaiting public. Sylvain Rivard also creates mystery game designs to order – custom productions for corporate clients and private enthusiasts.
Le Cube Secret is a sophisticated game offered in both French and English – an imaginary, surrealistic world of elaborate settings, filled with puzzles, traps, and secret doors arranged in apartments built into an enormous metal cube – looming, mysterious, a structure like no other, where a mesmerizing story written by Sylvain Rivard continues from one apartment to the other, allowing you to see links between each of the chapters and apartments in Le Cube Secret, whose four characters are in fact linked over time. In its puzzles and riddles, the Cube speaks to you, and tells the tale of their shared secret that’s yours to discover.
