Get Ready, Real Life Zelda Dungeons Are Happening And They’re Impossible

For those who can’t wait much longer for Breath of The Wild, this real life Legend of Zelda inspired adventure should keep fans very busy. Nintendo and the maze-building company Scrap are partnering up to launch Defenders of The Triforce, the very first Zelda room escape experience.

The setup for Defenders of the Triforce is familiar because once again, Ganon has the legendary Triforce in his evil possession. Participants will be tasked to find signature items, solve puzzles, and interact with familiar NPCs. If you ever wanted to see someone fold up Goron-style, now’s your chance. The event will allow six people per team and a one-hour time limit for the challenge.

Tickets are available now for a select number of locations in the United States. For anyone who still remains skeptical, Scrap claims itself to have a participant success rate of 2%.

Looks like that famous victory chime will take some more effort.

  • San Francisco – Jan. 31-Feb. 5
  • Los Angeles – Feb. 10-12
  • San Diego – Feb. 24-25
  • Seattle – TBA
  • Chicago – TBA
  • New York – TBA

Honestly, though, this sounds exciting. Officially promoted by Nintendo? No mentions of the words “temple” “water” or “tingle”?  All good things.
