Who Kidnapped
YOUR Boss?


Your boss has been kidnapped - and you’ve only got two hours to return them to safety! Working in case squads, you’ll travel around the city (on foot), unlocking suspects (5 of your co-workers), solving riddles, puzzles, and completing multimedia challenges to unlock clues. But can you crack the case and save your boss before it’s too late? Your bonus might just depend on it. Don't want to go bespoke? We have a surprise / default boss.

Ultimate City
Hunt: D.C.


You'll never have enough time to complete every challenge - but that's okay, nobody will! Each team will pick it's own path as they decide what GPS stops to hit and where to complete any number of other creative photo, video, and sticker challenges. Think that's all? It never is. With 50 challenges to choose from - get ready for competitive chaos!  Already played but loved it so much you are back?  Ask about Ultimate City Hunt 2!

Great Scott Goes to D.C.


Biff has stolen the DeLorean and is wreaking total havoc on pop culture as you remember it! Working in teams, you’ll travel to various hotspots to unlock the decades (80s,90s,00s,10s and the Future) where you'll decode puzzles, crack codes, and complete pop culture-saving recreations - how's your Moonwalk? An escape-style city game like nothing you've ever done! Buckle up - we're gonna hit 88 mph of fun!

  • What are the Physical Requirements and How Long are the Games?

    Yes we can!  Personalized challenges about your values, custom locations, learning objectives - you name it.  Talk to a game producer today.

  • Are We All Walking Around Together?

    No. Our games are designed to scatter teams across the playing field and large groups can be assigned a variety of starting points.

  • Are the Start / Stop Locations Provided or Custom?

    Both. We have a game ‘zone’ for you to play in with recommended stop / starts, but can accommodate custom start / stop locations in most cases. We can also customize any of our games to specific locations, but normally that’s not required.
