Sign up in teams of 2-6 players and compete for the top score in these fun group activities in Vancouver for Halloween. 

Secret Mission – Save the City

We have intercepted a threatening message from an evil organization with plans to destroy Vancouver.  The mayor has secretly put out a call for the best private spy units out there. You have two hours to locate the leader and save the city.

Are you ready for your secret mission? Gather your spy unit and sign up. Then, watch for further instructions. You will be met by a Special Agent, who will give you everything you need to save Vancouver, including a map and a spy kit.

Crime in Downtown – The Detective Challenge

Thirteen years ago Jimmy Capello was found dead in his downtown Vancouver apartment — strangled, poisoned, and stabbed. Now the Police Department has re-opened the cold case and it’s up to you to solve it.

Was the killer casino boss Greg Flament? World famous psychiatrist Susan Slater? Or party girl heiress Janet Evans? Armed with your detective kit, a map and a team of your closest friends, you’ll try to prove you have what it takes to work homicide in the big city.

Heroes and Villains – A Superhero Adventure 

The slimy supervillain Muck Monster has plans to flood Vancouver with rain before she takes over the entire planet. Can you find her weather machine and stop it? Save the planet with your team of super friends – Agent X will give you everything you need to complete this quest, including a unique super power for each player.
