We started creating immersive challenges because we love opening portals to new worlds, and surprising audiences with “how’d-they-do-that” moments of awe. Our experiences are designed to mystify even the people who have already done events “like” a scavenger hunt or escape room before. With us, you’ll experience a challenge you won’t be able to compare to anything else.
There’s a world underneath our own, hidden in history. Our games invite you to peel back a layer of reality and discover truths hidden in plain sight. Instead of being trapped in an escape room, we want you to experience the limitless possibilities of the real world.
True play requires you to bring yourself to the challenge, not play a character you’ve never met. Instead of forcing players to “play pretend,” we invite your team to play a game while being fully themselves — which opens up truly creative adventures.
Not only is play fun, but it exercises an important muscle: Empathy. Getting a little bit outside of your comfort zone replaces jadedness with wonder. Let the game surprise you.
Our team of brilliant Cluemasters and Clue Creators hail from the film industry, virtual reality design, music production and performance, immersive theater and interactive gaming. We’re experience enthusiasts who are designing the games we want to play.

"We had high expectations and they were far exceeded. The challenges were difficult, extremely creative, and completely customized to our group. Suffice it to say our group couldn't have possibly had more fun. Thank you for making me look great!"
"I'm always very skeptical of these "team-building" events, but this one was over the top. They successfully handled our 120-person team, with puzzles that were really challenging. The whole experience couldn't have been more engaging!"
"One of our directors told me it was one of the best organized online challenges they've done."
"[The challenge] shattered any expectations I had. For a fully remote event, I expected a bit of cheesy fun, but the production quality is unbelievable. I absolutely recommend everyone to try it."
"To quote one of my teammates: "This [challenge] was mean and hard, and resultantly perfect." Thank you for the stellar experience, service, and fun."
"For a few hours, you get to feel like a secret agent as you traverse the mundane real world with a VIP pass for curated wonder."
"A mixture of live actors, custom puzzles, and clues built around pre-existing and famous structures in lends the event a sort of glam DaVinci Code energy."
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.
