Danger No voltage!

The monumental centuries-old Fort Westoever in Den Helder housed a military emergency power plant dating back to the Cold War. Today the fortress has become a tourist destination, housing a brewery and restaurant. For Beleef het Avontuur DST developed the special escape rooms of Danger No Voltage!, in which the atmosphere of the Cold War takes centre stage.

Visitors become elite team members of the special marine task force Marine Unit Technical Support. The entire Dutch power grid has been blacked out by a cyber-attack. Only by starting up the ‘forgotten’ emergency power plant from the Cold War can the country be saved. Will your team complete this mission within the hour?

DST developed the two rooms’ storylines, visitor flow and design. As a result, visitors find themselves participating in their own personal action movie. Expotise was responsible for building the interiors. They used techniques that are novel in the escape room scene. Exactly what, you will have to find out for yourself by visiting…

Visitors can play both escape rooms subsequently, or independently. Two-team visits are also possible, as both the Control Room and Engine Room have their own stories, atmospheres and solutions. No matter how you play them, these are one-of-a-kind escape rooms you’re guaranteed not to find again anytime soon.

De Zaanse Schans cheese farm

De Zaanse Schans is a must-see for its two million plus national and international visitors. This is where visitors discover what makes the Netherlands so quintessentially Dutch. Cheese plays a prominent role in these stories. For Henri Willig’s cheese farm De Catharinahoeve DST concepted, designed and realised a high-capacity permanent exhibition on cheesemaking. A high-volume visitor flow and multi-linguistic approach were vital to this project.

To help visitors understand what cheese actually is, and how it’s made, we converted the monumental barn De Haal to a pre-visit experience. This is where visitors discover all about cheese in their own time, using film, imagery, text and exhibitry. Afterwards visitors enter a tasting room where they sample the taste of cheese, guided by cheese connoisseurs.

Henri Willig Cheese

Henri Willig produces tasty organic cheese. Visitors learn how that’s done in his cheese farms, among the animals and cheesemakers. These attract busloads of visitors. To help Henri Willig’s stories get the airtime they deserve, we developed a guided tour in Katwoude. This is all about grass, cows and cheese.

In the Fall of 2017 Henri Willig opened his new stables for his herd of Jersey cows, at his organic farm in Katwoude. Our self-guided tour is part of this state-of-the-art farm complex, which promotes animal welfare in all its aspects. It allows visitors – young and old – to discover the special bond Henri Willig has with his animals and his cheese. We managed concept, design and realisation in a record time before the official opening.
