Start your day by racing each other in small teams as you navigate a series of themed clues that weave around town between drink stops. FUN puzzles will ensure plenty of laughter along the way!
Teams will start from the same point with 2-3 minutes between departures.
Each team given a unique code that will activate a series of clues sent to the Mystery Towns App. Starting with a tricky puzzle, each team will have to work together to carefully read, interpret and solve the clues that take them around town – via a couple of pubs!
During the race, teams will visit local icons and hidden gems, interacting with businesses along the way, and requiring excellent teamwork to efficiently solve the clues. Correct answers will automatically generate the next clue, but beware – wrong answers and using the HINT buttons will cost time penalties added at the end. The fastest group rarely wins, but the team that works together most effectively almost always does!
