Full Experience Details

Hop onboard for the ultimate virtual team challenge. Part murder mystery and part escape room, you’ll work in teams of 3-8ppl to decipher the clues and solve the case.

A crime has been committed on “The Polar Express” you must find the guilty suspect before the train arrives at its final destination. Challenges will include cracking locks, solving puzzles, analysing evidence and deducing if what the 4 suspects have told you is true.

Hosted by a live “Chief Detective” who will be your guide and adjudicator. You’ll take on the role of “Junior Officers” who as well as solving the crime, will be scored on your crime-solving abilities so at the end we’ll know who the ultimate detectives are.

This is a fun, immersive & competitive festive experience, ideal for small and large groups. The experience can be run for groups sized 5-1,000+ and has content suitable for national and international audiences.

The “Mystery On The Polar Express” storyline…

Officers, we have been called on board “The Polar Express” the luxury train known for its famously and fabulously wealthy guests. On its flagship December trip, Gordon Gutterbridge the CEO and owner of “The Express Train Company” has been found dead. The murderer has been narrowed down to 4 suspects. Gloria Gutterbridge, Gordon’s long-suffering step-daughter. Sapphire Moonshadow an influencer who has been #gifted the journey. Lord Geoffrey Barton-Bouché an unhappy investor, and Harry Holbart the train’s first class steward. We must solve the mystery in 50 minutes before the train arrives at its final destination. 


–> You’ll be welcomed by your high-energy host “Chief Detective Poiwrote”, who’ll introduce the experience and explain the rules.
–> We will then split you into teams of 3-8ppl. These teams can be chosen by you or can be randomly assigned. (For groups 50+ teams will be randomly assigned).
–> You’ll then work through 4 rounds of challenges. In each one new clues will be given to you including puzzles, maps, codes, suspect interviews and more.
–> After each round you’ll head into your teams to answer questions on the clues and solve the challenges. Points will be awarded on how you answer these.
–> At the end you’ll need to decide who you think the guilty person is.
–> The experience will end with a reveal of the guilty suspect along with announcing the winning team.
