This interactive adventure game combines the fun of a scavenger hunt with the clue-solving pressure of an escape room and then adds the thrill of racing against the clock.

Whether you choose to complete as quick as possible or stroll along at a leisurely pace as you explore Whistler Village is entirely up to you. This scavenger hunt style adventure is great to do with families, friends, and groups.

How it works:

  • Once you’ve registered your adventure and picked your start date with the game 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 onto your smartphone and use the access code to activate your adventure.
  • You’ll receive a series of clues on the APP. Each clue will guide you to the next location where you'll solve a puzzle or solve a clue.
  • Along the way, you'll visit local icons, uncover hidden places, and experience beautiful scenery.
  • Clues are sequential and written with the assumption you have no knowledge of the town.
  • Submit the correct answer and you will immediately receive the next clue. Not to worry, directions and hints will be available … but they will cost you a time penalty!
  • Solve all the clues and you solve the final mystery!
  • The game is most fun when working with other people to find and solve clues. The suggested team size is between 2 to 5 players.
