A Circus Of Screams – A Murder Mystery Treasure Hunt
The team behind A Vow To A Kill and A Shot In The Saddle are back with their most sinister mystery yet. A Circus of Screams is a brand new, 3 hour, immersive Murder Mystery Treasure Hunt that challenges the public to roll up and race round Reading to hunt down hidden evidence and catch a circus killer as they crack the case of #WhoKilledChuckDagger – against the clock!
The game centres around the murder of famed daredevil knife thrower, Chuck Dagger, who had rolled into Reading as the new headline act for The Circus of Dreams – but last night he was found face down in the sawdust of The Big Top, with a dagger in his back. The Circus of Dreams has become a circus of screams – and there’s a killer on the loose. The clowns at Scotland Yard don’t stand a chance.
The whole town becomes the set for this real-life whodunnit, which fuses live-action, escape-room style puzzles, a scavenger hunt and actors with a murder mystery, as players must crack cryptic clues using their smartphones, converse with suspicious characters and find vital evidence hidden around the town, in partnership with local businesses and iconic Reading locations – before the time runs out.
Roll up and race round Reading as you search for hidden evidence to catch a circus killer! Gather a troupe of super sleuths and crack the case of #WhoKilledChuckDagger at the gravest show on earth!
Saturday 16th Feb, Saturday 23rd Feb & Saturday 2nd March
