A puzzle hunt can be hard to explain, so here's a "typical" scene from this kind of event:
Having solved the previous clue as GPS coordinates, a team of puzzle hunters bursts out of their car and begins rushing towards the statue of Lord Beaverbrook! Beside the statue they see an envelope with a wax seal. The team frantically rips the envelope open to reveal a piece of paper with strange symbols and a riddle. While trying to piece everything together, they see another car pull up a few hundred feet away full of competitors. They know if they want to keep their lead, they'll have to figure this out fast!
Puzzle Hunt FAQs
1. What is a 'Puzzle Hunt'?
It's the lovechild of an escape room and a scavenger hunt! Puzzle hunts can take place over any area (building, neighbourhood, city) and involve participants (often in teams) racing against each other to solve puzzles. Solving one puzzle unlocks the next one and often incorporates physical aspects of the space into the game. There can also be physical challenges to these types of events.

3. Who can play?
Anyone! It's great for friends, co-workers, organizations, families, the young, and the young at heart!
4. This sounds like it could be interesting, but I'm worried I would not do very well.
Nah, you'll be fine! We hear that a lot with our escape rooms, but you'd be surprised at just what you can do! The great part is that this thing is entirely customizable. We tune the difficulty to your desire.
5. How many people do I need to play?
Ideally, more than 20 people (otherwise, consider our
escape room option), and there's really no upper limit to the number of players. We are working on producing a smaller puzzle hunt though, and will update this section when that happens.
6. What's the cost?
It depends! How many people will be playing? Is it in a building or all over a city? How much "wow" factor has been requested? There are many factors that impact the price, but we can get to a cost pretty quickly after asking you a few of those basic questions.
7. How long is a puzzle hunt?
The length can range from hours to days and is entirely up to you, but we find that 2 hours is a pretty good number for most people.
8. How far in advance do I need to book something like this?
This also depends on a number of factors as each event is customized to the user's specifications, however, 6-10 weeks is a good ball park place to start.
9. How do I get a free quote?
