We love an element of surprise when it comes to arranging epic team days, and no-one will suspect they’re about to tour back in time to solve one of Australia’s oldest cold cases.

The Cloncurry Train Heist or ‘Great Mail Train Robbery’ of 1938 will have your team searching for clues, cracking codes, and racing against the clock to be the first to solve the case. 

Bit by bit, team members will piece the puzzle together and watch in awe as this infamous age-old story unfolds

Ideal for professional development days, your Train Heist detective experience will begin with an interactive history lesson on the Cloncurry Train Heist, before your group is split into teams, and sent on their mission to search for clues and solve the mystery.

You’ll call on your teamwork skills for decoding encrypted messages, solving puzzles and uncovering the truth of one of Australia’s greatest whodunit mysteries. 

We bring the game to life wherever you are, so the simulation can be staged in any setting of your choice with open space, tables and a screen. The experience is suitable for small teams through to groups of more than 100.

We can also tailor the experience to deliver specific outcomes and skills tests suited to your team.
