Murder Mystery Scavenger Hunt

About
This is an incredibly fun and unique adventure where you'll find out if your detective skills are good enough to solve a murder... Each team is given a list of suspects along with a packet of tricky clues, twisted riddles and mind-bending puzzles. Our clues will systematically lead you to explore Downtown Laguna Beach. Using your wits and some creativity, each location will reveal another piece of your investigation, and you'll eliminate suspects until you've discovered... Who Done It? Your team will compete against up to ten other teams scattered throughout Downtown Laguna Beach, each leading their own separate investigation. The team that solves for the murderer needing the least help from headquarters wins! The game lasts about four hours and will require traveling about three miles on foot. Allow extra time for signing-in at the beginning and socializing at the end. It's a great way to tour Laguna Beach. Get outdoors for the day and enjoy the great beach atmosphere while exercising your body and mind. There is no age limit, but the game is likely too mentally challenging for children under 12. This is also an excellent event to book for private parties and for corporate team building outings. There are other clue based games out there. Most involve simple and tedious tasks. Murder Mystery Scavenger Hunt is NOTHING like them! If you want a NICE day, suitable for YOUNG children, play theirs. If you want an experience you'll never forget, come see us.

This was the most fun scavenger hunt we've eve done and we have done a lot. All of the puzzles were hard but we figured out each one with some team work. Make sure you read carefully! I can tell that Alex has updated his material to prevent people from getting stuck because they misunderstood instructions. Everyone who participated couldn't stop saying how much fun it was. We had a group of teenage girls and only about 1/2 of them were into it so be careful with bringing kids. Come fueled up and hydrated, it is a lot of walking. I can't wait to do the other hunts around me!

I participated in the Laguna Beach scavenger hunt on a Saturday and it was a great way to spend a few hours while using your brain and having fun. I've been to Laguna so many times but I notice so many new things about the city while doing the hunt. The puzzles are well crafted and have the perfect level of difficulty while not being too easy. Alex was very helpful when we my team got stuck and we had a great time chatting with him after we finished for the day. I would highly recommend the Murder Mystery Scavenger Hunt.

So fun!
If you’re in town for a few days and have 1 day to experience Laguna Beach, this scavenger hunt will take you all around the downtown area… plus you’ll get to exercise your brain and your legs!
All very well put together, creative, clever and somewhat challenging.
Alex does an excellent job of explaining and the provided materials are clear and understandable.
Highly recommended activity!

Great way to learn the City of Laguna Beach and enjoy the great weather and scenery. It is a fun activity for a group of friends - really challenging puzzles and riddles. Alex, the owner and host, did a fantastic job of putting this activity together for residents and visitors alike. I would definitely recommend this activity.

My 3 friends and I played the Murder Mystery Scavenger Hunt yesterday in beautiful Laguna Beach. If you love walking and figuring out puzzles and challenges, this is for you! We didn't figure out the killer (yes, most of the teams did) but we had great fun trying and definitely will do better the next time. A really fun day! Well organized, great challenges, about 4-5 miles of walking. Highly recommend!

We had a great time. Came to celebrate my birthday with some friends. We did the Laguna Beach one. There is a lot of walking so I suggest bringing water and some snacks as it is a long game. The game was challenging but no overtly so. Will definitely be doing some of the other ones.

We spent an absolutely beautiful day wandering around Laguna Beach. We have lived in the area all our lives, but learned some wonderful things about this great city. The scavenger hunt was fun and mentally challenging. I was wearing a Fitbit and it registered over 17,000 steps for the day. I plan to purchase tickets for our young adult kids. Here's a hint. During the winter in Laguna Beach, there is a Farmer's market on Sat. across from the Laguna Playhouse. If you park in spaces #300 and up, you can park for free all day and don't have to worry about moving your car.

We took adult kids and two grandkids (9 and 12), and we all had a terrific day of walking Laguna Beach and solving a murder mystery. Alex sets up a very clever and challenging day. You really have to stretch your brain and do a lot of walking, and you can figure out who the murderer is. Throw in breakfast and dinner with family -- what a great way to spend the day in a beautiful beach town.

We did the Old Towne San Diego scavenger hunt. It was a fun way to explore the town. You do not need to know anything about the area in order to win. The clues were very clever. Some were easy, but some were quite a challenge. We may have stopped for a beer or two during the race and we still came in second place.

My company booked an afternoon for our teams to bond. We had a great time with the scavenger hunt. It was challenging enough but we didn't get frustrated.
