Everyone Loves a Mystery… and Torchlight Mysteries like nothing more than creating heritage themed events. We work with heritage locations across the country to establish immersive events and activities that offer challenging mysteries and puzzles.
Immersive actors who kept in character and period - had plenty of information about the Town
Operation Secret Window - Aldershot 2021
Actors from the 1920s recounted stories of Aldershot from 100 years ago.
Actors were part of the problem solving route - you just needed to ask the correct questions
Most teams took one hour to complete the challenge
The route took the players around the Town Centre of Aldershot
From the Casebook: Operation Secret Window
Especially created for Rushmoor Borough Council Operation Secret Window was an outdoor adventure game with escape room clues and immersive actors. The game utilised six window art installations created to celebrate the heritage of Aldershot Town Centre. Each window reflected a shop or business from the past one hundred years and the game involved players locating shops that stood one hundred years ago. By asking actors placed on the route relevant questions they could lead you to a shop that stood for over 150 years - a musical shop on Potters Corner. Most teams successfully completed the challenge in one hour. Special congratulations to team “Missing in Action” who completed the route in 37 mins! They had played Operation Secret Agent (a 1940s themed outdoor escape room) and attended the Heritage Tours Torchlight Tours had provided earlier that month. It pays to do your research!
