The experience
The Experience
An outdoor escape game that offers an engaging new way to explore Sydney's secrets. Follow riddling clues as you try to catch a murderous mastermind.

Will you stop the killer, or will you be forced to survive by other, less heroic means...
The Story
A local resident has been found dead on the banks of Circular Quay after playing a mysterious game. The only way to catch the killer? Joining the next round.

Assisted by Sherlock Holmes, complete the game-master's fiendish challenges, scouring their words for hints as to their identity. The places they take you, the way they speak, anything could be a clue.

The clock is ticking. Identify them before time runs out or you might be their next victim.
About the game
About the game
Your team will receive clues from the killer to your phones that, once deciphered, will guide you to interesting and scenic parts of the city.

At the end of each will be a fiendish riddle, solvable using things you can find in the streets around you. Reply with the right answer to receive the next clue and advance the story.

As you play you will receive information about the killer from Sherlock back at HQ. Use it, along with things the killer lets slip in their messages, to work out who they are and stop them before it's too late.

The route is walking distance and features optional breaks at great cafes/pubs.

Sherlock
