Your spaceship broke and you and your team are stranded in space. What’s worse, all the communication options are off. Put on the suit, go outside and fix the ship. You have 60 minutes until you lose the oxygen supply – after that, no one will hear your scream.
Human Space Conductor puzzle idea
There are a broken machine that runs the spaceship and two big cables coming from its sides. Players have to connect them together but they cannot reach each other. There is a hint-joke about people being the best electricity conductor. One player has to grab both ends of the cables (becoming a human conductor) and hold it until the progress bar on the machine is full. Then, the puzzle is won and the machine starts to work, showing hidden information behind a Venetian mirror (you can see through it when the LED lights placed around it on the other side are activated).
What you’ll need:
- 🤝 Human Chain puzzle
- ⏱ LED Progress sensor extension
- 🧩 Universal puzzle controller
- 👀 Venetian Mirror
- ✨ LED Lights output set
Under Pressure puzzle idea
Players are in a spaceship. There is a narrow corridor between two main rooms. Players are instructed to enter the corridor, shut the door to the first room, and “change the pressure” to enter the second room. The instructions for that should be presented as some old picture guide on the wall. First, the puzzle controller detects that the door was closed through a magnetic sensor in the door frame and a magnet in the door. It starts a sound effect of air being sucked in.
Then, players have to close a pressure valve (Safecracker sensor, 4th mode) which stops the sound effect. Now, they have to push the big red button (Panic Button sensor) but the door to the second room is still closed. There is another picture guide to check the fuse box if the door doesn’t open. The fuse box in the corridor has one loose fuse. When players screw the loose fuse tight, the door opens (an electromagnet releases).
