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.

Niagara's "Mystery on the Lake" was a great way to spend the afternoon. The guides and characters that you meet along the way really make for a truly unique and memorable experience. You learn a lot about the history of the town, all the while laughing and trying to solve the puzzles you're given. This was most definitely the best and most memorable walking tour that I've ever been on. I would heartily recommend this experience to anyone who enjoys learning, solving puzzles, and most of all, having a great time!

Everything about this - from booking to the final resolution - was professional, thorough and organized. The Mystery itself was intriguing and fun, outstanding "actors", audience involvement and enough mystery solving challenge to make the 17 yo and the 65 yo in the group both totally absorbed.

The Shaw Plays are wonderful, but this allowed us to enjoy walking throughout Niagra on the Lake and being part of the "show"....

I would think everyone who experienced the show came away smiling and reflecting on a terrific time.....my daughter and I certainly did.

I attended the Mystery on the Lake performance of the Secret of Buttlersberg on Saturday August 8. My guest and I found the performances hugely entertaining and the separate locations intriguing and informative.

The refreshment stops were timely and typical of the charm of the Old Town. Sharing the historic walk and solving separate riddles along the way helped us make new friends and see Niagara-on-the-Lake from a fresh perspective. We highly recommend the experience. Great for the whole family and worth every penny.

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.
