Attraction details
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. The MOTL experience is part amazing race, part scavenger hunt, part historical adventure, and part interactive theatre. 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.

A good and interesting way to spend an afternoon in Niagara-on-the-Lake. Mystery on the Lake takes you on an interesting journey through the town and ends at Fort George all led by actors posing as quasi-historic figures. The guests have to solve a mystery. They gain a clue with each stop along the route. A good way to meet people, enjoy some less seen areas, have a drink and a snack and more than a few laughs. Lots of fun.

Mystery-on-the-Lake is a fun-filled outing for both tourists and locals. Interact with actors to solve a mystery while visiting local attractions and historical sights. Meet new people too! It takes a few hours so wear some comfy shoes. You'll have a drink and a snack as part of the tour but that's all I'll say so I don't ruin any surprises. Well worth the money. Looking forward to doing it again with more of my family.

Thank Wellander
