Visit the witnesses and answer the questions and riddles to get their testimonials. The testimonials are in the form of films and contain information that will allow you to eliminate suspects and weapons. In the end, you will hopefully have the right solution to the murder mystery! The game is in English. THE CASE The game takes place in a fictional small town called Glenndale. A man named Carl Brown has been found murdered in his own home. Why did someone want to kill Carl? Who had the motive and opportunity? Your task is to find out who the guilty one is and which murder weapon was used. This is our first case and more will come. We estimate that it takes at least 2h to complete the assignment.

Absolutely, the activity is fun to do together as a family but is not designed for children to manage on their own. We recommend an age from 12 years old and up if there is no accompanying adult.

What people are saying about Nice

Great! Through the scavenger hunt, you explore the entire old town with your own eyes and are much more attentive and pay attention to details. We kept deviating from the route because there was so much to see and discover. This keeps you busy all day long. It is enough if 1 person downloads the app and pays once for the tour, you have the option to do the tour over several days (although you only pay once). Very easy to find everything with Google Maps and everything close to each other. Was fun!

An excellent moment with a top guide who made us discover Nice, Villefranche sur Mer, Monaco with our hair in the wind. We were all delighted including the girls (13 years old) and our son (soon to be 7 years old). See you next year

Tickets € 30 each for Marineland which is a beautiful aquarium where the shows are done very well. The park is well served with toilet and refreshment points and very convenient from the motorway exit. Ample parking € 9 all day.

Superb activity. In addition there was almost no one we were able to fully enjoy the park and see the shows at different times (2 times the Orcs) Really to see ❤️

Great experience. My kids loved it and the host was very nice and patient with the kids
