How Does It Work?

The game commences at a secret (yes, exciting isn't it!) location somewhere on Micklegate. From here you will embark on a journey into the streets of York, guided by a GPS-enabled app on your phone. Each specially chosen location you arrive at has a unique puzzle to work out and each clue you crack takes you one step closer to solving the mystery! The game is played by teams of 2-5 people (you can book online here). Typical game duration is around 2 hours - each game must be completed within a maximum of 3 hours (so you can take a break if you wish).

Children (under 16s) must be accompanied by at least one adult (18+). Under 11s play for free.
