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

Discover the secrets of one of the country’s most fascinating historic neighborhoods on a scavenger hunt where the shocking past and trendy present collide. Brothels, drug dens, and gambling halls once dominated the Gaslamp Quarter, which is now populated by fabulous restaurants, popular nightclubs, and unique boutiques. On teams, you’ll get to explore it all by tackling entertaining challenges: you’ll find or create unusual items, take creative Team Photos, solve a mystery message, and meet with the Hunt Host for a surprise bonus challenge.

Whether you’re an out-of-towner or a local, you won’t believe what once happened in this formerly seedy neighborhood—and what’s happening right now as you try to solve our challenges. See why more than half a million people around the country have raved about our scavenger hunts since 1999 for birthday parties, company outings, social-group gatherings, and any event looking to bring a diverse group of people together for team building and fun.
