Below is a list of FAQs that pertain to our pre-written experiences. If you have questions about a custom event, please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
What are your experiences like?
Our experiences are a mix of interactive theater, improv comedy, walking tours, and puzzle-solving. Groups that participate in our experiences will solve clues and puzzles, travel through NYC on foot, and meet and interact with various characters played by actors and comedians. All this is done in the pursuit of a quest, to solve a mystery, or to save the day. Most of our experiences work best with groups of about 10-12, so larger groups will be split into separate smaller groups and receive staggered start times. The experience will always end in the same place, so groups can easily meet up at the end.
What will happen during the experience?
All of our in-person experiences begin when the group meets a character at a predetermined location in NYC. The exact location will be given to the group a few days prior to the event. The character that meets the group will explain that they are in need of assistance and that the group must work together to aid them in a quest. The group will then travel by foot to various locations, meet different characters, gather information, solve clues and puzzles, and perhaps receive some light snacks and a drink.
How long is it?
All our in-person experiences are approximately 90 min.
Will I be walking outside?
Yes. You and your group will be traveling to several locations within the same neighborhood. Some of the locations are inside and some are outside. The walk from location to location is never more than 10 minutes.
What do I need to bring?
Be sure to bring comfortable walking shoes, weather-appropriate clothing, and an umbrella if needed. If it’s hot out, a water bottle is recommended.
Who are these actors, anyway?
The characters you will meet are all played by highly experienced professional actors and improv comedians.
What if someone in my group is shy? Will they be forced to put on a funny hat and participate?
Our actors are skilled at ensuring that everyone in your group feels comfortable throughout the experience. They will make sure that everyone is given the opportunity to participate, but if someone feels more comfortable watching from the sidelines, that is okay too!
What is the vibe here? Are your shows funny? Serious? Campy?
Our experiences are whimsical and darkly comedic with a healthy dose of wit.
Where will the experience begin and end?
The experience will begin and end at two separate locations within the same neighborhood. We don’t list the exact starting and ending locations to maintain a sense of mystery, but if your group would feel more comfortable knowing where these will be, we can certainly let you know.
Explain to me how this works.
Groups will work together over zoom, either all together in one group, or split into smaller breakout rooms. There will be one actor on screen with every group that will facilitate the game.
What happens exactly?
The actor facilitating the game will be playing a character that is in need of the group’s help. The group will be asked to work together to solve a mystery or complete a mission. The group will then use the internet solve clues and puzzles in pursuit of their quest. In our game Clash of the Psychics, groups will play games and complete whimsical tasks.
Do I have to have my camera on?
The game works best when everyone has their camera and sound on.
How long does it take?
Our virtual games range from 45-90 min
Do I need anything to play?
All you will need is a piece of paper and something to write with.
Is this fun?
