Curious Londoners, how much do you really know the city you live in? Are you wondering if there’s more surprises hiding somewhere and waiting for you to discover them? Well, have we got the best idea for you. Seeing the city on a planned tour is great, but exploring all the nooks and crannies on an epic treasure hunt is better. For the active and adventurous, it’s time to run around, sneak around and work around the cryptic clues to escape the hunt from patrollers. City Dash is a highly energetic and exciting experience that immerses you into a thrilling situation that requires 60 minutes of brains and stamina as you uncover secret hiding places and crack codes to outrun enemy agents. As part of a team, it’s time get into the zone and to work together to create diversions, delegate scouts and lookouts or even make a regrettable sacrifice for the benefit of the team. This street game is very highly recommended with challenging puzzles and quick escapes that will get your heart racing!
For those visiting London for a trip, consider getting to know the capital and its history through City Hunt, a mass treasure hunt for all ages and located in either Elephant and Castle, Blackfriars and Bermondsey, with new locations still to come.

Great for tourists, families and even anyone who feels they don’t know London’s culture and heritage very well, now’s your chance to meet London! Remember, no cheating and Googling answers.

Whichever mission you choose to attempt, you and your team of 5-15 agents must think and act quickly to catch the culprits and save the day.
