Escape The War Room

This year's Dynatrace Escape the War Room is a Secret Agent themed adventure codenamed 'CloudFall', where you have 30 minutes to escape a dingy jail cell and the clutches of your abductor. When a top-secret list of your fellow undercover agents' secret identities are exposed, it is up to you, Agent Felix Leiter (Leiter, Felix Leiter), to recover the list and save your fellow agents. While investigating an unknown individual known only as 'Cypher', you are captured and placed in a locked room. Your job is to find out who 'Cypher' really is and escape from this dingy cell before it is too late. You will be challenged in more ways than one with this exciting Escape Room.
