Imagining being invited by a mysterious host, to a foreboding heritage location, candle lit and atmospheric… only to find that the host has gone missing. Well that is what is would happen on one of our mystery dinners. Based at some of the most stunning heritage locations across the South Coast they are site specific immersive experiences… meaning that the mystery will fit the location and you are placed at the heart of the action.
Whether it is a troublesome Edwardian family in a country manor house, rivalry in the ranks in a Victorian Fort, or war-time drama in a museum, or murder aboard a Victorian warship; you will be in the middle of the drama from the beginning spending the whole evening with your hosts. You will accompany them as you explore the location looking for clues - offering a unique opportunity to explore the locations after dark as you weave through dark corridors by torchlight.

Immersive actors who kept in character and period - had plenty of information about the Town
Most teams took one hour to complete the challenge
Actors were part of the problem solving route - you just needed to ask the correct questions
The route took the players around the Town Centre of Aldershot
Actors from the 1920s recounted stories of Aldershot from 100 years ago.
Operation Secret Window - Aldershot 2021
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!
