A fantastic team challenge that combines the best parts
of a scavenger hunt and an intriguing murder mystery!
Teams attempt to solve the suspicious death of Howie Gruemble in this 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. A fun event for everyone!
Agenda & Activities
Welcome & Warm-Ups (5-10 minutes) Our staff welcome the participants to their mystery scavenger hunt and get everyone ready for a great time. We then lead some 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 Mystery Scavenger Hunt (1-2 hours) Teams will unlock valuable evidence, piece together clues, and solve the mystery as they complete extra challenges that act as a tie-breaker if 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 booby-trapping the evidence. Teams will need to find these challenges and solve them to keep the pub- lic safe, and to 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 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, turn materials, and hear the solu- tion to the mystery.
Solution (5 minutes) We reveal the solution to all the mur- der mystery scavenger hunt clues and identify our culprit.
