This adventure is a great experience gift for families and friends.  Whether you choose to race against the clock or amble along at a leisurely pace as you explore Crowsnest Pass is entirely up to you!

How it works:

  • Once you’ve registered your adventure and picked your start date with the tour provider, you’ll receive an email with your access code and instructions. This is done after you’ve activated your experience on Breakaway Experiences’ website.
  • Suggested team size is 2-4 players. It is most fun when working together with other people to find and solve clues.
  • 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 to a new location where you will have to solve a puzzle or find a hidden word.
  • Clues are written sequentially and with the assumption you have no knowledge of the town. Each clue has several components to uncover to guide you towards that clue’s destination.
  • Once you submit the correct answer and you will immediately get the next clue. Don’t worry, hints and directions are available but do cost you a time penalty!
  • Complete all the clues and solve the final mystery!

Your exciting Crowsnest Pass Clue Solving Adventure: Pictures of the Past

Get ready for a historical whodunnit as you go back to 1923 and join the search for four stolen photographs from Thomas Gushul's photo studio that hold the key to a great mystery. These photos may seem like classic images of everyday life in the Canadian Rockies but when put together they hold the key to the fiendishly difficult combination to a vault in a neighbouring building that contains much of the town's wealth.

Are you and your team up for the challenge of finding the photos and solving the mystery?
