This was a fun team building event! We lucked out and had cool but clear weather. This made wondering around Gastown even more enjoyable. The Murder Mystery Adventure was well organized and very enjoyable! Would recommend for team building or even a group of friends wanting to do something different. Great fun for locals or tourists.

Two thumbs up! Great way to scamper about downtown finding clues and solving puzzles on a drizzly Vancouver day!

Great fun, clever puzzles perhaps a little simple, but a really enjoyable 90 mins. Great to see a lovely part of the city.

Some of our reviews say this game is too difficult, so we are glad to hear from others who find it easy! It can be tricky to find that balance where most people can enjoy the game. We hope you'll try our new game Ghost Patrol next, it is our most challenging game yet. Thank you for your support of small business. Sincerely, Tanya Bennett (owner)

We ended up canceling this event after we walked through town to get to it. It was so disturbing to see the active drug use block after block around the place to start. It greatly disturbed my child and we had to go back to our hotel. Disappointed we couldn’t do it, but even more disappointed in the location that’s picked to start.

Here is some more information about the start location for anyone else reading this review. The start location for this booking was directly across the street from another popular tourist attraction, (the Vancouver Lookout) and very close to the convention centre, cruise ship terminals and the Gastown steam clock. These are popular tourist destinations. The game booked, Secret Mission, takes players through the downtown shopping and business centre of Vancouver past the Vancouver Art Gallery, the Bill Reid Museum and the Marine Building.

Really fun game, especially if you can get a small group together. Very well organized and a fun challenge. Clues are challenging, but solvable. We had great fun racing around the city for 2 hours trying to solve all the clues.

The “Secret Mission” was VERY challenging (there were several times you had to think through several of the clues so that we could figure out how they all linked together), and the mission also helped us to see many neat things and buildings around downtown Vancouver. We temporarily saved Vancouver, but…because we ran out of time and we did not figure out exactly who Blackout was, they could come back at any time and attack again. Good agents will be needed to defeat them.

Very friendly customer service. I really appreciated the proactive gesture from Vancouver Murder Mystery Adventure to resolve the issue even before my asking for any help. Thank you. We will join the murder mystery game next time when the weather is nicer.

It was such a fun experience and harder than I expected but still solvable too. Suitable for everyone. And it was great to be walking about outside for the adventure too!
