The Professor discovers that the world’s first time machine has gone missing along with Doctor Copernicus. With only one hour of fuel left and the communication systems down, Doctor Copernicus could be lost anywhere in space and time … forever.

Can you help the Professor and the LSO solve riddles and clues to bring Doctor Copernicus back home before it’s too late?

Join the London Symphony Orchestra for a musical time travel adventure spanning the centuries. Created by the same team who brought you Game Over, Voyager and Where’s Simon?
