The Swimming with Sharks Scavenger Hunt

Reel in an amazing adventure

Search for strange and exotic fish in one of America’s premier aquariums and answer tricky, entertaining questions about what you find. Five levels of tanks take your investigation to a tropical rain forest, a four-story coral-reef tank, and the murky depths where a giant Pacific octopus lurks.

Along the way, you might…

  • See a multicolored fish that could be packing heat in case others laugh at it
  • Rub your eyes at the brilliant colors of tropical fish and poison dart frogs
  • Peer into the teeth of sharks
  • Find out which Atlantic fish strategically bend genders
  • And maybe even find Nemo

Those are just a few of the highlights you’ll encounter on this underwater adventure. You don’t need to be Jacques Cousteau to have fun and even win the hunt, but you will learn a lot of cool fishy facts along the way.

It’s a great way to see the best of the aquarium—perfect for corporate events, school field trips, camp outings, birthday parties, and family get-togethers. The Kids Edition of this hunt is suitable for ages 7 and up.

The Murder Mystery Mayhem Scavenger Hunt

Beware: there’s a killer in your midst

Someone playing this game with you is a bit of a Jekyll and Hyde. His or her good side knows nothing about the evil side—and the evil side has challenged you to prevent your own murder. Everyone in your group has been poisoned, and the clock is ticking down on your time left to live. To reveal the killer’s identity, you’ll have to complete a series of photo challenges, solve interlocking puzzles, decipher coded text messages, and more. If you succeed, you get the antidote. If you fail…well, you know.

If you love escape-room games, you’ll love this murder mystery scavenger hunt. But even better, you won’t be locked in a room for an hour: this game can be played almost anywhere. 

An in-person murder mystery for any location!

We have a variety of versions, depending on where you want to play. Such as…

  • A city, town, or neighborhood
  • A science or history museum
  • A zoo or aquarium
  • An office building
  • A school or campus
