Detective Hero during the Covid-19 pandemic

Detective Hero games provide an opportunity to get outside in the fresh air and have fun, while practicing social distancing. You can play with anyone in your household, with up to five devices per team. Detective Hero games involve exploring a large outdoor area, hunting for virtual clues and other items. You can walk or jog to locations in the game. 

The format of Detective Hero games will change during the Covid-19 pandemic. Our murder mysteries will be small scale walks, held in large parks and green spaces where possible. Games will be held more frequently, with a low number of participants per game.

  • Max 10 ticket holders per day
  • No contact with other teams
  • 30 item locations spread out over a large area in the open air
  • Start and play any time within a 10 hour window so you can easily avoid others 
  • 10m radius for items so you can keep over 2m apart
  • Same game available on multiple dates
  • Play by yourself or with your household
  • Ticket cost lower as teams are smaller 

During strict lockdown, no murder mystery games will run at all. If you purchase a ticket in advance for a Detective Hero game, and the government returns us to strict lockdown, you’ll receive a full refund.

These changes to Detective Hero games will be in place for the duration of the Covid-19 outbreak, until life returns to normal.

Stay safe and enjoy playing Detective Hero this summer!
