Your Sylvan Lake clue solving adventure: The Lost Regatta. 

Use your sleuthing skills to discover details of a lost regatta as you explore this stunning lakeshore town. The records of a great regatta in 1921 have been scattered around town along with the names of the boats and of the grand prize winner. A local historian needs your help finding the information for a big news story. Are you up to the task?

• Start location:  Downtown Sylvan Lake

•  Start time:  It is flexible! Start any day any time. Just finish it before it gets too dark.

•  Walking distance: Approximately 3km on flat pathways and roads.

•  Average time to complete:   Approximately 90-minutes plus optional breaks.

•  What you need: At least one fully charged cellphone per team (we advise 2+). Dress for the weather and wear footwear suitable for walking around town.

How it works:

  • Once you’ve registered 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 receive a series of clues through the tour App. Each clue will guide you along an easy walk to a new location where you will have to solve a puzzle or find a hidden word.
  • Suggested team size is 2 - 5 players. It is most fun when working with others to find and solve clues.
  • 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.
  • Submit the correct answer and you will get the next clue. (Don’t worry – directions and hints are available but do cost you a time penalty!)
  • Solve / decipher all the clues and solve the mystery!

Need to know:

  • You are not required to purchase anything along the route.
  • Please ensure that your cellphone is charged before you start. You are only required to use the phone for the App. Data plans are only used to activate the adventure and are not used during play.
  • Additional phones may be added at no extra cost.
  • Bringing a phone charger is a good idea if your battery is low or weak.

If you're looking something fun to do in Sylvan Lake, and you think you have what it takes to solve the clues, or you're looking for an awesome experience gift for someone who craves a little bit of adventure in their life, try this fantastic Sylvan Lake Clue Solving Adventure!
