We’re glad you had a good time on the hunt this weekend and we’re sorry you struggled with navigation. Our murder mystery hunts tend to be our most challenging and we recommend larger teams so that more heads are working together.

We're so glad you enjoyed the hunt! Our Murder Hunts are some of our hardest and we find that larger teams generally do better on the hunt. But we definitely have smaller teams win also! Hopefully we'll see you and your friends on another hunt...More

Yesterday was my 5th scavenger hunt (Hamilton's NY) with Watson Adventures and it was one of my favorites. Anyone who is looking for an activity that marries history with clever puzzling-solving must jump into this hunt. Exploring the financial district and understanding a little bit...More

This was a team building exercise we brook up into two groups (3 and 4 people). At first I was skeptical about the experience, we ended up having a lot of fun. I would definitely do it again. Our instructor Ari was great.
