Mystery Town Tours

What: Mystery Town Tours operates just like the escape rooms that we all know and love (though sometimes really, really hate), but the twist is that you’re not actually trying to escape anything. You’ll actually be following clues throughout the town, receiving information via phone, and replying with your answers to the mysteries presented throughout the day. And it could be a full day, at that, as tours can range from 90 minutes to a full afternoon of adventuring around the town.
