A premium adventure that combines the best parts of a scavenger hunt, an escape room and an intriguing murder mystery!
Teams attempt to solve the suspicious death of Howie Gruemble in this deluxe murder mystery scavenger hunt. While cleverly disguised as tourists so the murderer won’t know they are on his trail, teams head out into the area to find clues to help them identify the killer. Each team is armed with an iPad or smartphone loaded with our amazing app for solving clues, tracking suspects, finding evidence, and some fun photos and trivia to support their cover story. Along the way, they will need to unlock secrets to gain access to hidden areas, overcome challenges, and interact with some questionable characters. A fun event for everyone!
Agenda & Activities
Welcome & Warm-Ups (5-10 minutes) Our staff welcome the participants to their high-end mystery scavenger hunt and get everyone ready for a great time. We then lead fun warm-up activities that also randomly create small teams.
Team Up! (5-10 minutes) Teams take a few moments to create a name and slogan for their crime solving team, and build some team spirit and unity.
Event intro (5 minutes) Our fun and energetic staff give the group a quick tutorial on the app and the other event components to ensure a smooth start.
The Investigation (1 1/2-3 hours) Teams will unlock valuable evidence, piece together clues, and try to solve the mystery. Along the way, they will complete fun tie-breaker challenges in case more than one team solves the mystery.
- Evidence: Using the app on their devices, teams can scan suspicious items that they find. When they do, the app will reveal additional information about the item that will lead them to the killer.
- Photo & Video Missions: In order to fool the murderer, teams will take these tourist themed photos as part of their cover story.
- Sleuth Questions: Although it may appear that they are mild mannered tourists, teams will be trying to solve the case while they seek the answers to these questions about the local area and people.
- Urgent Operations: The murderer has tried to cover his tracks by boobytrapping the evidence. Teams will need to find these challenges and solve them to keep the public safe and track down the villain.
- Character Challenges: This ‘immersive theatre’ part of this event is very popular, requiring teams to work out cryptic clues in order to interact with “suspects,” “spies” and other characters (members of our staff) to get additional information.
- Solve the Mystery: Teams use the evidence they have gathered on their investigation to piece together who killed Howie Gruemble.
Scoring (15 minutes) Teams reconvene at the starting area to finalize scoring, return materials, and hear the solution to the mystery.
Solution (5 minutes) We reveal the solution to all the murder mystery scavenger hunt clues and identify our culprit.
