This Hong Kong-Themed Scavenger Hunt Lets You Tap Into Your Inner Detective
Right from the comforts of your home.
(SPOT.ph) Hong Kong is one of those destinations that you don't mind flying to again and again. They've got shopping districts, exciting theme parks, cool art hubs, and Instagram-worthy spots. While the pandemic put a halt to most of your Hong Kong travel plans this year, you can still check out its famous landmarks through a fun-filled online mystery hunt: Hong Kong Heist, which is available through Mystery Manila's website.
The mission is simple: solve the mystery behind the disappearance of the Bruce Lee statue located along the Avenue of Stars. You can tag along your friends with a minimum of five and a maximum of 15 players at P399 per head. The whole game will run on Zoom for 45 minutes, and a game master will challenge you with mind-boggling puzzles that will help you solve the case of the missing statue. Some of Hong Kong's famous tourist destinations will also be flashed on your screen while you look for clues.
"Over the years, we’ve gained a lot of fans for our escape rooms and we’ve seen how this has become such an exciting way for groups to bond and spend time together. In light of the pandemic, we’ve taken the experience online and we’re equally excited for the opportunity to do something new with Hong Kong Tourism Board, us being fans of Hong Kong ourselves. We’re looking forward to see people trying their best to crack the mystery, and while we can’t guarantee it will be easy, we assure you, it will be fun," said Errol Magdato of Mystery Manila in a statement.
Pre-pandemic, Mystery Manila is known to host escape room games at their branches in Makati, Pasig, and Quezon City. But with current restrictions, they've decided to go online and set up mystery games via Zoom—aptly called "Zoomdunnit." Aside from the Hong Kong Heist, they also have The Murderous Meeting, where you take over a virtual-board meeting; Revenge at the Reunion, where you're reunited with high school friends and enemies and figure out who's the killer before another one of you gets murdered; The Missing Masterpiece, where you have to figure out why a million-dollar masterpiece went missing right before an art auction.
To book any Mystery Manila Zoomdunnit game, head over to their website and select a game, date, time, and number of players. Payment can be done via online bank transfer, Grabpay, GCash, Coins.ph, over-the-counter banking, and business centers.
