A new adventure in interactive theatre combines the rich history of Niagara-on-the-Lake, Canada with live improvisational theatre. This unique entertainment format is appropriately dubbed, “Theatre that ‘moves’ you!”, since participants travel between a variety of related outdoor venues. The MOTL experience is part amazing race, part scavenger hunt, part historical adventure, and part interactive theatre. Teams compete against the clock and each other as they are dispatched on an entertaining quest collecting clues, solving puzzles, and interacting with wacky character actors on this unique scavenger hunt as they discover historic Niagara-on-the-Lake. Participants will travel about 1.7 km (1 mile) during the adventure with frequent stops. Customized show dates and times for groups are available."Theatre Express" performances are also available and provide a 'theatre where you are' indoor experience with customized themes within an interactive theatre format.

Engaging, fun time with great actors. Also enjoyed the teamwork with the other attendees to solve the clues and get where we needed to go when not with the actors. The time flew by and was thoroughly enjoyable! Highly recommend!

My wife and I participated in the MOTL and thoroughly enjoyed it. We were with another couple and their 4 pre-teen grandchildren who really got into the 'spirit' of the adventure (and their enthusiasm was contagious!) We learned some local history, took a walking tour...More
