Part murder mystery, part escape room, part treasure hunt, this is an uber-cool
interactive game that will see your team uncovering the mysteries of urban hipster life. Our professional actor hosts will meet your group and explain the ins and outs of the game. Don’t worry, no one will be asked to take on a character like a 90’s murder
mystery party or ‘act the part’, we’ll leave that to the local hipsters.

Teams will receive case files with locations of interest which include two bars, and
parks, the local streets and alleyways. At each of these locations you’ll need to solve
riddles and crack codes to reveal clues that will help you eliminate people from the list
of suspects. As the game unfolds you’ll collect newspaper clippings, QR codes,
handwritten notes, audio excerpts from police interviews, staff incident reports,
receipts, and be able to have a drink or two at the bar stops. The puzzles have that
awesome escape room feel with locks, lights, codes, and mirrors, and just like a
treasure hunt you have to hunt around the streets to find them! You’ll also meet our
hosts along the way for interactive challenges and games.

To add to the tongue-in-cheek vibe of the game, each team will have the option to
complete a series of hipster themed photo & video challenges. From man-buns to latte
art, vintage bikes to dressed up dogs, we give you plenty of opportunities to get bonus
points (and good insta content) #winning!

Once teams have sufficiently sleuthed you all meet back at a bar, attempt to
consolidate evidence and make your final accusation. Our hosts announce the
accusations one by one, building as much suspense as a true crime podcast series
finale. Finally the solution to the mystery is revealed and the team who was first to
identify the killer and scored the most bonus points takes the glory! Case closed.
