Welcome to The Great Gotham Challenge.

The Great Gotham Challenge is an immersive puzzle adventure that combines mind-bending puzzles, food, live theater, history, and embedded technology to create unforgettable team building experiences.

As the clock ticks, competing teams race to find and decode a series of interactive clues that engage the rich culture and history of the world around us.

Whether they’re virtual or in-person in New York City, our customizable experiences can help teams build cooperation, encourage out-of-the-box thinking, or just plain dazzle and delight, building unique shared experiences that will be talked about for years to come.

For groups based in New York City, treat your team to an in-person adventure that will show you the city like you’ve never seen it before. Unlike traditional scavenger hunts that are often mere checklists of activities or photos to cross off, our experiences plunge you into a hidden world that will subvert your expectations at every turn.

Great Gotham Challenge is like nothing your team has ever experienced. It's challenging, takes mental grit to complete, and starts at $2000 for our most basic, 2-hour in-person experience. If you are looking for something short, simple, and inexpensive, this may not be for you. However, if this sounds intriguing, we can't wait to hear from you via the contact form below.

Custom Events

Our “off-the-shelf” challenges are available to run on pre-set courses. However, what if you want something more bespoke?

Our custom challenges give our clients complete freedom to shape the experience as they see fit, from format to difficulty to theme - we add special details like inside jokes, product or industry themes, or company history, mission and vision elements.

We can build in premium experiences (like buzzing down the river in a speedboat;) luxurious, private locations; or even build bespoke challenges in a completely new city for your special event. If a custom event sounds like a good match for your team and fits within your budget, we’d love to help. Just ask!
