“You have the right to remain silent…forever!”
Murder Mystery Dinners / Luncheons / Cruises / Corporate / Public Shows / Locations
Hilarious by nature…deadly by design! The first cocktails of the evening…playful laughter, casual socializing…”hahaha” and then…a sudden surprise as shots ring out! Was that a hitman? Was it a guest? Did the detective just take down a felon or eliminate a potential witness?
Could it be an inside job? Does he get the “hit” or does he get himself shot; from that moment on…it’s anybody’s game!
A homicide detective arrives and every eye scans for the guilty party. Who will reveal the truth and who will unveil the real culprit? Who hired him? Why? Should anyone beware? Has the “fun” just begun? How long has the barkeep been employed? Who else is involved? Is that your real hair colour?
Comedy is the key ingredient.
Murder Mystery dinner theatre is staged in an environment of great food, whether a sit-down dinner, buffet, luncheon or tapas and cocktail style. In addition performed in unique environments and plenty of ambiance such as restaurants, cruise boats, private homes or lounges. More over, each event has a customized script created along with a professional cast rehearsed in the plot.
The actors then arrive just like the real guests with no one knowing who they are – incognito. That’s when all the fun begins! At any given moment you could be talking to a murderer, a potential victim or just plain innocents. But that’s all part of the fun as wild scenes sporadically erupt.
Then guests have an opportunity to try and solve it before the actors wrap things up with the big, cataclysmic conclusion.
“Never take life seriously, nobody gets out alive anyway!”
Outstanding professional improv comedians will cause full-out laughs! We will work with you gathering inside information to customize your groups improv experience complete with comedy and wit.
Improv is a perfect way to enhance any event with interactive entertainment and laughter. With energy driven improv troupes available in your city, our comedians will have you rolling on the floor in fits of laughter.
Improv comedy is engaging team-bonding at its best!
Alternatively, you can select our Team building Improv event where your people actually participate and learn improv techniques. Comedy fosters successful collaboration. In order to succeed, participants must establish effective communication and accept and build upon each other’s actions while remaining as flexible as possible. As a result, everyone is empowered to interactively discover his or her inherent creative potential.
A Common Side Effect: Laughter!
Improv comedy is fun. A common “side effect” of most Improv experiences is laughter. It is widely accepted that introducing humour into the training process, or convention setting, enhances learning and improves retention. Importantly, Improv introduces and supports a brand of inclusive humour in which everyone feels welcomed. This can be contrasted to the exclusive type of humour that marginalizes individuals or groups and often has negative results.
SCAVENGER HUNTS & RACES
Events Charged by Technology
Slixer is a leading provider of technology fuelled, interactive and engaging scavenger hunts in Canada and the US.
Scavenger Hunt and Race events are clever, customized and creative. Whether a City Explorer, Indoor Hunt, Scavenger Hunt, Treasure Hunt, Spy School, Limo Hunt or Amazing Race they are an enjoyable and interactive experience. Taking place in any weather, any location and city. Locations include; downtown, parks, around your office, resorts, indoor walkways and underground pathways, inside hotels and conference centres or any location of your choice
Great for corporate team building activities, conference breakaways, orientation, onboarding, birthday parties, bachelorettes, stags or just for a fun event with your friends. Suitable for any age or physical ability.
Each event customized based on your group dynamics and theme. In the event that a corporate event desires their values and mantra to be threaded throughout we can deliver. Of course a bachelorette party must have some racy clues and challenges like marriage and love related tasks. Likewise a birthday party will have clues and riddles focused around the number and also the year the birthday guest was born.
Limo Scavenger Hunt
“The Journey is the Reward”
Offering the best in team entertainment using classy limos and our smart device Adventure App.
Uniquely, our limo scavenger hunt events are catered for maximum enjoyment while providing class, fun and hilarity. Particularly perfect for a corporate break or team building, birthday parties, stagettes, stags and anything in between.
Each city we offer our limo hunt in has carefully selected points to showcase the city. For instance, provide historical reference, further, highlight famous locations so as to challenge the smartest in your group (or limo) and works rain, shine or even blizzard!
Let the Games Begin!
- Each team is supplied with a login to your pre-downloaded Adventure App and also a “Mission Briefing” before the event.
- Teams are the pre-divided equally further, your group determines division.
- You have exactly two hour (or three hour option) from departure to get as many points as you can. Above all, the group with the most points determines the winner. Ultimately the facilitator will make final calculation.
- Especially cool is you can see the other teams in real time and how many points they have too.
- Some Clues / Riddles and GPS Hotspots are more difficult or further and given that, will be awarded extra points.
- As well as clues / riddles there are photo clues, videos clues and you’ll be taking videos and clues yourselves.
“The Journey is the Reward”
An absolute must for any group wanting an adventurous outing or exploration.
Foot & Treasure Hunts and Explorers can take place literally anywhere, any season, anytime, indoors or outdoors using our Adventure App. We will customize your hunt to suit your specific needs and can tailor so that it meets a specific theme, event or vision.
A host will be greet guests at the start and will provide each team with their “kit” and will welcome “hunters” at the finish. Hosts inject fun, energy and humour into the event and the wrap-up is always good for a laugh when reviewing the photos. Ultimately the host will have final determination on the winning team.
Let the “Hunt” Commence!
- Each team will have pre-downloaded our Adventure App and been emailed a “Mission Briefing”
- Each item or photo has a predetermined maximum points BUT creativity gets more as behind the scenes we have a Game Master scoring your photos and videos – and they get pretty hilarious. For instance, for our Jungle Themed Explore, after a series of quizzes about mammals, to unlock the next Jungle Tasks teams had to: “Locate a stranger mammal and photo in a cute pose”
- Teams are pre-divided groups between 4 and 8 of your choice.
- At the start, Teams will start the app according to instruction.
- You have exactly a predetermined amount of time (1-3 hours) from the start to get as many points as you can.
- Overall, the Team with the most points wins.Then there is a prize for the winning team to share.
Our Explorer series includes:
- Venue / Hotel / Resort
A FAST PACED AND FUN FILLED RACE EVENT
Slixer’s Amazing Race has the digital meet physical in our unique styled race.
It’s equally corporate and private group friendly, competitive and of course, an absolute blast! Unlike the TV show, we are not out to make you cry, get dirty, nauseous, angry or murderous (we’ll save that one for our murder mystery events!).
Everyone has a chance to win a prize whether rain or shine. Additionally, participants will be racing in a customised event built to suit a specific function, corporate mission or theme, vision, birthday, bachelorette, anniversary, bar / bat mitzvah and any type of special event.
Furthermore, participants will embark on a significantly fun adventure around a location chosen by you or one of our suggested locations. Then, through mixture of smart device tech and actors at challenges stations participants will truly have a one of a kind and uniquely engaging event.
There will be facilitators in costume at each challenge station. “Racers” will need to unlock clues to get there. Along the way, they will have to collect, observe and report tasks. Then provide these to the facilitators in order to obtain their next task. Once they have completed their task at each destination, they will receive their next clue.
Each team will be provided with the rules and these will be provided before their first clue. Each destinations facilitator or location will have a route marker which will confirm they have arrived at correct destination or task station. The first team on the Finish Mat wins the Amazing Race!
IT’S A RACE TO THE FINISH!
During the Amazing Race the challenges that your team will come across are stimulating enough by themselves. However, increasing the wager substantially is the added ingredient of racing against other teams . The objective of each team is to successfully complete challenges on a GPS guided journey around your chosen location. Clients will have challenges designed specifically for your event. Teams will have to over come the following situations along their journey:
- Detours: Teams will need to complete a challenge which takes them off their route.
- Route Markers: Smart device hi-tech takes teams to challenge stations with GPS and clues.
- Road Blocks: Teams must immediately complete a fun and interesting task which unlocks their next clue.
Once all teams have arrived at the finish mat, the wining team will be determined. Slixer’s host will verify race information and results. All “racers” involved in this exciting and fun team building event, no matter the winning results, will enjoy the occasion mingling with their fellow “racers” and seeing the known and not so well known stops along the way.
Highlight Historical Hotspots: Your Team must choose six riddles / clues AND three questions from selection of riddles / clues / questions that have a metaphorical or direct correlation to CLIENT and then obtain photographs / answers of the resulting object / locations / answer. ALL team members AND ONE STRANGER must be in each photo (minus photo taker).
Once six photos and three questions have been collected you must return to this location and have the facilitator confirm to receive next clue. For each riddle / question you do not get a 15 minute time penalty will be added (eg: if you only get 5 riddles and 2 questions then 2×15 minutes = 30
Acquire Artistic Appreciation: Your team must now use their creativity to draw the lake view, each team member AND ONE STRANGER must add one element and then, upon completion it must be presented to facilitator to obtain next clue.
In case of a tie on the Finish Mat, to decide a winner this challenge has a grading system. The better grade would win, you will receive a grade for your ART – either: A+ / A / A-
YOUR CUSTOM EVENT IS AVAILABLE IN YOUR DESIRED TIME SLOT, ANYWHERE AND FOR ANY SIZE.
Choose any outdoor space for your event which will be suited for one of our customised courses. Smart device guidance allows teams to easily follow GPS pins as they race other teams and the clock in a furious dash to the finish mat.
Virtually anywhere there is cell coverage is good to set-up start and end locations of the Amazing Race. An enjoyable and relaxing end destination where “racers” will feel happy unwinding while they recall the hilarious and delightful parts of the race is recommended.
