That is up to you – we like to think of it as an Adventure. It includes the fun clue-solving experiences of a scavenger hunt or an escape room, but also the secondary discovery of seeing parts of the town you may never have found. It is as much FUN if you have been in town 20 years or 20 minutes. Whether you choose to race the clock or simply enjoy the experience as you tour the town is entirely up to you!
Suggested team size is 2-4 players, though it is up to you. It is most fun when working with other people to find and solve clues – we do not therefore recommend single players. We also suggest a maximum group size of 4 players players to ensure everyone is part of the clue-solving experience. If you have more we suggest you split into smaller groups and compete against each other – there are places along the way to meet and discuss progress (or poke fun at each other!)
You will receive an email on confirmation of your booking. Download the App, go to the Start Location and input the details as instructed. From there you will receive instructions and a backstory, and when ready to go you will receive a series of clues that will lead you through your adventure. Submit your answers and when correct you will receive a new clue – or if wrong you will receive a time penalty. Complete all the clues and solve the final mystery!
Mystery Towns adventures are very flexible – we want you to play on a day that works for YOU and fits your own plans and (of course) weather conditions. You can start any time after your booking has been made - you don’t need to tell us when – you simply go to the Start Location within the start time window in your instructions (and the time window is set to ensure that businesses and pathways are open).
Use of the App requires access to wifi or data ONLY to download the app and when first activating your game. During the game you only need wifi or data if you wish to synchronize additional phones in your group. We recommend downloading the App and activating your game using wifi before you leave your house or hotel, then waiting to reach the start location before entering READY (at which point the clock starts and your game officially begins).
