Mystery in the Forest

Ever wanted to put yourself in the centre of your very own murder mystery experience? Well now's your chance as CluedUpp and Haldon Forest Park present "Mystery in the Forest" - a virtual murder-mystery adventure like no other. Budding detectives read on if you dare....

Competing with 100's of other players across the afternoon & evening, your group of wannabe Sherlock's will need to track down the 18 virtual-witnesses placed all around the forest, eliminate suspects and rule-out murder weapons - but do you have what it takes to solve the murder mystery?

During this event, you'll download a murder case file (delivered via CluedUpp's award-winning app) that provides you with:

- 18 virtual witnesses to locate within Haldon Forest
- 14 possible suspects to eliminate
- 5 possible murder weapons to rule out
- Cryptic clues and brain-teasers to solve
- Red herrings to avoid
- Hidden features to uncover
- 1 killer to bring to justice!

It's just like real-life Cluedo! But will your team be good enough to catch the killer? Maybe you'll grab one of our awesome trophies for the following categories:

- Fastest Team
- Best Fancy Dress
- Best Team Photo
- Best Team Name
- Best Little Detective (Kids prize!)
- Best K9 Unit (For Dogs!)

Your team can set-off at any time between 4.30pm and 7pm at your own convenience - and the game will take most teams 2 to 2.5 hours to complete.

Tickets are just £25 per team of up to 6 players (children & dogs are welcome). Earlybird tickets are even cheaper at just £20 per team if you sign-up in advance.
