Owner description: A new adventure in interactive theatre combines the rich history of Niagara-on-the-Lake, Canada with live improvisational theatre. This unique entertainment format is appropriately dubbed, “Theatre that ‘moves’ you!”, since participants travel between a variety of related outdoor venues.

Teams compete against the clock and each other as they are dispatched on an entertaining quest collecting clues, solving puzzles, and interacting with wacky character actors on this unique scavenger hunt as they discover historic Niagara-on-the-Lake. Participants will travel about 1.7 km (1 mile) during the adventure with frequent stops. Customized show dates and times for groups are available."Theatre Express" performances are also available and provide a 'theatre where you are' indoor experience with customized themes within an interactive theatre format.

What a great way to see the town and to meet other vacationers. There is a lot of walking, so wear comfortable shoes. It was pretty hot on the day we participated, so you may want to have a bottle of water with you. The actors were excellent; funny and entertaining. We'd recommend this to friends.

My husband and I spent the weekend in NOTL and decided to do the walking tour/ theater of Mystery on The Lake, The Secret of Butlersburg. Wow, we had an amazing afternoon! We were grouped with only nine other people and we had to work as a team to find clues and solve the mystery! We ended up with a really fun group that all interacted well together. The actors are found throughout the tour and the fun never stops!

This was well worth the money and a great way to spend the afternoon. The mystery tour took about 2 1/2 hours and be sure to wear your walking shoes! Refreshments were provided, and I'm sure this could take place rain or shine. Be ready for loads of laughs amongst your tour of the historic area.

A fun afternoon on a lovely day! My mother and I enjoyed ourselves very much yesterday, Friday, July 2nd at 1pm. The characters were great, and we loved the places we were sent on our search for keys and clues. It was well worth the time and money. Thank you to Trip Advisor for giving us the tip!

Engaging, fun time with great actors. Also enjoyed the teamwork with the other attendees to solve the clues and get where we needed to go when not with the actors. The time flew by and was thoroughly enjoyable! Highly recommend!
