It’s your adventure, your way!

A game? A tour? YOU decide! Your Cochrane Clue Solving Adventure blends the fun of a scavenger hunt, the clue-solving challenge of an escape room and the excitement of racing against the clock. Guided by your smart phone, family and friends can join you in uncovering hot spots and testing your knowledge. This interactive adventure game is a brain-teasing voyage of discovery where you can find secrets that even the locals don’t know.

You’ll receive a series of clues on the free APP. Each clue will lead you on an easy walk to a new location where you'll find a hidden work or solve a puzzle. Along the way you'll visit local icons, uncover hidden places, discover great dining and shopping.

This adventure is a great experience for families, friends, and groups. Whether you choose to race against the clock or enjoy the experience at a leisurely pace as you tour Cochrane is entirely up to you!

How it works:

  • Suggested team size is 2-4 players. It is most fun when working with other people to find and solve clues.
  • Once you’ve registered your adventure and selected your start date with the tour provider, you’ll receive an email with instructions and access code. This is done after you’ve activated your experience on Breakaway Experiences’ website.
  • Download the free APP and use the access code to activate your adventure.
  • You’ll then receive a series of clues through the tour App. Each clue will lead you on an easy walk to a different location where you will have to solve a puzzle or find a hidden word.
  • Clues are written assuming you have no knowledge of the town and are sequential. Each clue has several components to look for to guide you towards that clue’s destination.
  • As soon as you submit the correct answer and you’ll get the next clue. Don’t worry, directions and hints are available but do cost you a time penalty!
  • Complete all the clues and solve the final mystery!
