First time doing this and had no idea what to expect, but now we’re glad we jumped into it, we had so much fun. Loved the clues, good light exercise too.

We enjoyed seeing everyone’s amazing costumes and also had a blast solving the puzzles, some of the wittiest and fun we’ve seen. Make sure you read ALL the details, there are hidden messages that you’ll need!

Second time we’re doing this, now with my teen daughters, such a great way to spend time together, looking forward to the next one!

Our team was aged 12 to 67, a rare thing to find an activity fun for all ages. We loved the different parts of the city we discovered and the puzzles had an average difficulty.
Tan G.
Loved every part of it, the story, the challenges, the meeting of new people. And our team won best costume, so proud of them all :)

Such great value! We were a big team of 10 so we split up and competed against each other, it was very entertaining all around. Make sure your phone is decently charged before the event
