Escape the Great Lakes Science Center Scavenger Hunt

You’ve been poisoned!

Sorry to be the bearer of that bad news, but don’t panic: you can find the cure by playing this scavenger hunt. The evil genius who dosed you has created a series of puzzles that will reveal the combination to a box that contains the antidote. Sure, you can escape a room, but can you unlock the box and escape the museum with your life?

On teams, you’ll follow the villain’s diabolical trail of clues through the Great Lakes Science Center, searching for secrets in the galleries and exhibits. You’ll tackle devilishly tricky questions about what you find, interact with our staff to solve sneaky puzzles, and ultimately crack a code.

Plus you’ll interact with the science exhibits for creative Team Photo Challenges!

No knowledge of the museum is required: you just need sharp eyes, comfy shoes, and excellent teamwork.

This is a great game for all kinds of groups—especially ones too large for conventional escape-room games. What makes this particularly perfect for mixed groups is that if you have participants who don’t care much for puzzles, they’ll still be delighted by what we help them discover in this fascinating museum. A Kids Edition is also available.

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 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
