Solve a murder mystery in this city-wide "CSI Calgary" game next spring

COVID-19 continues to present a risk to public health. While restrictions have been lifted across Alberta, it is recommended to continue practicing health and safety measures, including frequent hand-washing, wearing a mask where required, and staying home if you are sick.

Ready to live out your CSI dreams on the streets of Calgary and use those forensic investigator skills you acquired by watching TV to solve a murder mystery?

A new outdoor experience coming to the city next spring makes it possible to do just that. The “CSI Calgary” game requires players to use forensic techniques, codebreaking, and good old-fashioned detective work to crack the case and solve the mystery using the CluedUpp app on their smartphones.

“CSI Calgary” runs on Saturday, June 11, 2022, with a self-guided game unfolding virtually, giving players the chance to start anytime between 9 am and 2 pm on the day of the event.

You’ll need a team of two to six players and at least one smartphone, and you can expect the game to take approximately two to three hours – although this will vary depending on your detective skills.

Tickets are available now for $73 for a team of up to 6 adults (detectives under 16 and dogs play free!) and can be purchased via the CluedUpp website.
