Adventure City Games in Vancouver – are you affiliated?

Adventure City - Vancouver Outdoor Experiences I know it may seem like Adventure City Games is affiliated with Vancouver Mysteries because they also advertise unique experiences that let you explore the city with adventures that combine elements of treasure hunts, walking tours, and outdoor escape rooms! We’ve had some people ask, so to avoid any confusion we’d like to make it clear we are not in any way connected to this business.

Our business Vancouver Mysteries is owned locally and has been running a spy game Secret Mission for almost a decade. In this thrilling adventure, players are on a Secret Mission to save Vancouver from a criminal organisation that is threatening the city. The game lasts two hours and you purchase tickets online and then receive an email with information about how to activate your mystery. Larger groups or time slots with more than one team compete against each other for the top score (similar to the tv shows Amazing Race or BBC’s Race Across the World). If you have seen ads for Adventure City’s game Desolation in Vancouver, a game with a very similar storyline and very similar description we completely understand why you might be wondering if this is perhaps a phone/digital version of the same game as our game Secret Mission – it is not.

How do I know I’ve Booked the Vancouver Mysteries Spy Game? 

Please look at your booking confirmation email – if you’ve booked directly with us you will see the game name Secret Mission and our business name Vancouver Mysteries listed there. If you have booked a ticket from one of our ticket partners (Fever, Viator, Get Your Guide, Tiqets, etc) please contact them directly for customer service. Learn more about our thrilling adventure game Secret Mission here.

Vancouver Mysteries – Truly Unique Experiences

Vancouver Mysteries has been adding adventure to downtown Vancouver since 2014 and most recently was awarded Best Adventure Tour Company (Best of Vancouver 2023). Our outdoor adventure games are truly unique – you can’t play them anywhere else. Our games are only available in Vancouver. Unlike Adventure City, we are locally-owned and members of Destination Vancouver, The Greater Vancouver Board of Trade and DowntownVan. Our office is located at 550 West Hastings Street, close to Waterfront Station, other attractions, hotels and the cruise ship terminal. We regularly contribute to the community by donating gift certificates to silent auctions for local sports teams, student associations, school PACs and many many charities.

Vancouver is adventure city thanks to Vancouver Mysteries

ur games begin and end with a real person and are real, hands-on fun – no phones, wifi or date required. A Game Operator in character as a detective, spy, scientist or agent meets you to start your mystery and give you everything you need. You may have spotted our teams out there with black bags with our logo on them – these game kits include tools, artifacts, clues and even some surprises! Each team is also provided with a game book and a game map that features one part of downtown Vancouver. Instead of looking at your phones, your team will be engaged with their surroundings and interacting with iconic architecture, public art, historic sites and more. We meet you again at the end of your adventure in the city to calculate your score and give your team a certificate. Each player also gets a souvenir sticker. For example at the end of our murder mystery game Crime in Downtown, police rookies earn a detective badge. Book your outdoor city adventure game here.
