Using a smartphone or tablet as your personal tour guide, this is an activity with an interactive twist - an opportunity to join friends and family in uncovering downtown Calgary hot spots, test your knowledge, and have lots of fun.

Your Clue Solving Adventure will lead you on a route through downtown Calgary. This adventure game combines the fun of a scavenger hunt with the clue-solving challenge of an escape room and then adds the excitement of racing against the clock.

This scavenger hunt style adventure is great for families, friends, and groups. Choose to race or simply enjoy the experience as you tour Calgary. It’s entirely up to you!

How it works:

  • You’ll receive a series of clues on the free APP. Each clue will guide you to a new location where you'll find a hidden word or solve a puzzle.
  • Along the way, you'll visit local icons, experience stunning scenery and uncover hidden places.
  • Once you’ve registered your adventure and selected your start date with the tour provider, you’ll receive an email with the instructions and the access code. This happens after you’ve activated your experience on Breakaway Experiences’ website.
  • Download the free APP and use the access code to activate your adventure.
  • Clues are sequential and written assuming you have no knowledge of the town.
  • Submit the correct answer and you will immediately get the next clue. Don’t worry, hints and directions are available but they’ll cost you a time penalty.
  • Complete all the clues and solve the final mystery!
  • Suggested team size is 2-5 players. The game is most fun when working with other people to find and solve clues.
